Inside Charleston’s Record Setting $13.5M Historic Home
The market is clearly in full swing for historic trophy properties in the South Carolina lowcountry.
The sale of 10 Legare Street, a 8,596 square foot historic property, set a new record for a single family residence in Downtown Charleston at $13.5 million, edging out the July 2020 sale of the “Sword Gate House” at 32 Legare Street for $10.5M, and the November 2020 sale of the Paul Trapier Gervais House at 29 Legare Street, which sold for $11 million. This comes just weeks after the 16-acre Vanderhorst Plantation on Kiawah Island set a new Charleston record at $20.5M.
Built prior to the Civil War around 1857, the main house boasts four-stories with five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Impeccably renovated by the previous owners, the estate also includes an immaculate three-bedroom carriage house, enormous pool, and formal gardens. In total the property sits on nearly half an acre of prime South of Broad real estate. Of course owning and maintaining a property of this caliber is no small (or inexpensive) task.
Congratulations to Melinda Laurens of Carriage Properties along with Debbie Fisher of Handsome Properties on the historic sale of 10 Legare Street, one of Charleston’s most exclusive South of Broad residences.
A truly memorable project, Keen Eye Marketing was retained to create a photography gallery for this incredible property. Take a peek at a few photos from this iconic Charleston residence.
