A unique property with oodles of personality and charm, this Category 1 Georgian double house is situated on a grand estate in Charleston, South Carolina. It has been owned by only three families in the last 150 years and has never been on the open market before. The seven-bedroom home was built in 1745, and the sublime interiors reflect both the Georgian and Federal periods. The main house has a whimsical ballroom, cypress paneled library, 15 fireplaces with King of Prussia marble surrounds and a centrally located stair hall that rises up through the four floors. The kitchen building is connected to the main house and has a period-style kitchen and den, two bedrooms and full baths. There is an enchanting “secret garden” that is hidden away behind towering Podocarpus and reveals a large oval pool set among the flourishing gardens with Gothic Revival-inspired outhouses.
