I would generalize downtown Charleston as gritty rather than fancy.

The only area of the Charleston metro that I could see characterized as fancy is Daniel Island and the far north side of Mt Pleasant.

Kiawah is fancy.

I have never been to Kiawah but I don't consider that part of Charleston.

South of Broadway in Charleston is very elite but it is a neighborhood, not a city. Not the least bit gritty. Even the housing project is very well kept up.

Tennessee:
Collierville
Brentwood
Farragut
Farragut has lots of middle class neighborhoods from the 60s & 70s. While there are some elite areas it is not exclusively exclusive.

For Tennessee I would say:

Belle Meade
Lookout Mountain
Germantown? (isn't it more exclusive than Collierville?)

I mean you are looking at 45 minutes instead of 30 from downtown Charleston, but regardless it’s in Charleston County and therefore in Charleston Metro.

Honestly, I find everything south of Calhoun to be pretty darn fancy.

Who spends time south of Broadway other than people who live down there.

It’s Broad Street, and yes, more of downtown than the Battery area is nice.

I would have listed River Hills instead of Brookfield but hardly anyone lives there and I feel like even less know it even exists.
Interesting. I don't think of Brookfield as "fancy" at all, or even all that wealthy. Maybe in the mind of the people who live there, but most of it is just your basic middle to upper middle class suburbia that can be found outside literally any larger city in the US.
