Agent Remarks

c.1810 home on Charleston's high battery is quiet and private with thick walls and elevated views of the water. It is one of the few remaining single family homes on the Battery. After entering the home, you are greeted by spectacular water views of the Charleston Harbor through the windows of the grand living room. This spacious room is filled with lots of bright light due to the tall windows. Original Heart pine floors, period mantel, Venetian chandelier and restored moldings are just some of the beautiful finishes. In 2007, a new wing was added to the house which is now the piazza, kitchen with 5 sets of French doors, elevator for first two floors, 1/2 bath. This historic home has 4 levels of fantastic views, restored grandeur, and elegant space. The master suite, located on the second floor, has beautiful large windows that overlook the Charleston Harbor. This floor also has another bedroom with Cypress paneled ceiling and full bathroom. The third floor offers three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. On the ground level is a paneled billiard room with spare kitchen, living area, bedroom, two full bathrooms, sauna, elevator, steam shower, exercise room, laundry room and garage.
