Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, this iconic residence overlooks both the Charleston Harbor and White Point Garden, exuding history and charm with one of the best views in all of the city. This listing includes the first two floors of the building which are divided into a first floor 1BD/1.5BA unit and a second floor 2BD/2BA unit.The home, known in historical circles as the Louis Desaussure House, was built in 1858 in the Greek Revival style while also incorporating Italianate elements. Desaussure then sold the house in 1888 to Bernard O'Neill, a wealthy wholesale grocer, who added the cast-iron balconies which still remain today.The expertly maintained property retains many beautifully preserved historic details including 12 foot ceilings, detailed moldings, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, beautiful chandeliers, large doors and windows, and the original triple-tiered piazza and cast iron balconies overlooking the harbor.

Both of the units are spacious with great natural light and easy connectivity to the piazzas and balconies. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Harbor from the home's many large windows or delight in waterfront breezes on the expansive piazzas. Situated on the corner of S Battery Street and E Battery Street, you are also footsteps from some of the city's best parks, restaurants, galleries, shops, and more.
