Along with the main house is a restored former kitchen house, carriage house and a reconstructed tack house containing all the mechanicals for the property. The 1.25 acre property has expansive gardens, a newly built pool house, salt water gunite pool all meticulously maintained.Walk up the elegant stone double staircase where you are greeted by one of the most outstanding homes in Charleston. The main drawing room and dining room feature some of the finest examples of restoration of the decorative plasterer's art. The plaster restoration work on the cornices, fireplaces, over the mantels and ceiling medallions are the most exquisite in the city. The meticulous restoration work took 2 1/2 years to complete. While the house is impressive from the minute you walk in the extraordinary thing is how comfortable it is to live in. There are a total of 12 fireplaces in the Main House to enjoy a relaxing evening. This unique property has been reassembled to create the original urban plantation. The 1.25 acre property includes the Main House 9345 sq feet, the kitchen house (4 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths), the carriage house (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) which represents an additional 3922 square feet.
