Grand historic home, spacious, downtown, piazza House

Downtown Charleston

On the MAIN FLOOR is an elegant dining room with beautiful hand made mahogany table, sideboard, and hunt-board. Just across the central hall is a less formal living room. It is furnished with comfortable upholstered sofa and chairs and accented with fine antiques including a mahogany chest, fold top desk, French farm table with 6 chairs and a magnificent highboy. The new kitchen with marble counters, lovely light filled windows on three sides, all new appliances and conveniences is accessed through two nine foot entrances from the living room. All of these rooms open onto the main floor piazza and offer wonderful opportunities for family fun and entertaining. A gracious central stairway leads from the piazza to the large and lovely Charleston garden.

The SECOND floor houses the two main bedrooms, baths and closets. The two large bedrooms with four poster mahogany King Bed in Master and Queen in Guest Room and adjoining bathrooms open onto the upper piazza overlooking the garden and Charleston Harbor.

The THIRD floor consists of two large dormer bedrooms with wonderful windows on the north and south sides. Between these rooms is a bath with a shower. All have windows providing a spectacular panoramic roof top view of the landscape below.

The GARDEN is spacious and charming. The areas adjoining the house are terraced in old Charleston bricks and provide fabulous area for containers of flowering plants. The planting in the main garden is a balanced mixture of evergreens which provide shape, texture, and definition on a year round basis, and flowering shrubs and plants which provide a bouquet of color and scent as the seasons evolve. In the center of the front garden is a shallow reflecting pool with an Italian fountain. The fountain is automatically lighted at night and bathes the whole area with the ambiance of warm light and gurgling sounds. It is completely private from the street and fully enclosed and offers wonderful opportunities for entertaining or for children playing.

Location

This is an authentic Charleston 'single-house' (c 1795) which means a Charleston house that is a single room in depth, designed to catch the ocean breezes. The builders of this property were in the shipping business and a wharf was built into the river to accommodate the owner's ships. Property taxes at that time were based on a front footage assessment and the typical single house was placed so that the narrow side of the house would be on the street side. This property was an exception in that the long side of the house faces South Battery which made it even more accessible to the prevailing summer southwest breezes. The two piazzas on the south side provide a dual purpose: to provide a comfortable place to enjoy the afternoon breeze and sunsets and to provide shade for the house itself from the afternoon sun.

What a beautiful historic home in on Battery in Charleston! We could see the water & the proximity to downtown was so convenient. The beds were so comfy & period furniture made you feel like you had stepped back in time. We felt at home.... Our contact for the property was so helpful & gracious. Judy Colston Texas

Really enjoyed the property and it’s history and location. The backyard is beautiful and the landscaping immaculate . Only four families have owned the property dating back to the 1820’s but don’t worry . It’s been renovated ! Would love to come back with friends at a future date

Three couples enjoyed a fabulous week in Charleston. Location is great -- enjoyable walking distance to all the sites and restaurants. We also enjoyed being at home together, especially the fantastic porches and southern spring weather.

This house is beautiful, and the porches are perfect for reconnecting with friends/family and enjoying a glass of wine. This house is indeed like a historic treasure, but you actually get to stay in it. The kitchen is modern, but fits well with the theme of the house. All of the amenities are well thought out and provided, such as a wine opener, glasses, hair dryer and cookie sheet, yes pretty much everything.

This home is as beautiful as the pictures. It was so much fun for our group of six adults to stay there to celebrate two birthdays--it gave a much more "local" feel to our stay in Charleston. Our favorite part of the trip was returning to the porch in the afternoons to drink wine and talk. The neighborhood is lovely, safe and quiet. The house is spotlessly clean and the beds are very comfortable. Just an FYI--there are plenty of stairs to navigate! I would definitely recommend this house to those travelers that want an historic Charleston feel for their trip.

We stayed with 3 other couples while attending a wedding! The house was perfect for visiting with friends. The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are comfortable. The location was perfect for enjoying the city restaurants and shopping. Would recommend to my friends.
