The Cottages at Longborough is a 42-unit complex of multi-family housing, offering 2 and 3 bedroom townhouse style condominiums situated north of Hampton Park. To give them the low country, “southern charm feel” that Charleston is known for, each unit offers 1 or 2 story exterior porches, and is supported on a masonry crawl space foundation. Additionally, the streets are lined with live oaks, and individual landscaping embellishes the walkways.
The Cottages provide the opportunity to purchase separately owned housing units, yet the security and reasonable price of being contained in one building, or several buildings within one complex. Each floor level is wood framed and the roof is designed out of structurally sound wood trusses. In addition to security, and privacy, they minimize sound transmission while also meeting the structural design requirements with adjoining buildings and double-studded party walls between units.
