1103500 - Residential real estate
A true historical gem in Charleston, the Carolopolis Award winning Jacob Motte House is one of the earliest residences built in the city on the land originally bought from Robert Tradd. 61 Tradd was constructed in 1731 on Lot 60 of the Grand Modell of 1672. This early Georgian 3 1/2 story masonry single house was built by Jacob Motte, who was a Huguenot and Royal Treasurer of the Province. This home was also one of the first restoration projects of Susan Pringle Frost, who founded the Preservation Society of Charleston in 1920. Considered valuable to the city, this well appointed and historically significant home offers two prominent piazzas which provide beautiful vistas of Charleston's oldest church steeple, St. Michaels. The interior of this home boasts cypress period paneling accompanied by wide plank heart of pine flooring, and it also offers two brick chimneys and six fireplaces. The kitchen provides subzero appliances and granite counter tops. Master bathroom has been recently upgraded with new marble and twin vanities. This property holds an exterior Conservation Easement with the Preservation Society. Please note that the kitchen house behind this home at 61 1/2 Tradd is not included in the sale. Chandeliers and light fixtures (sconces) do not convey at closing.
