Location: Charleston, South Carolina
Here's a gem on the Charleston market: an early 1800s brick estate with delicious details and dreamy landscaping has just gone up for sale for $5.5M. Covering nearly 7,000 square feet, the five-bedroom property was completely restored in 1994 by current owners, with architectural features maintained in stunning fashion. There are, among other delights, elaborate Adamesque woodworking and fireplaces, original heart pine flooring in the main living spaces, built-in bookshelves, an intricate ceiling medallion with a chandelier (comes with the sale), and a mahogany and marble master bedroom with vaulted ceilings.
With ample windows on all sides and spacious hallways, the house is bright, airy, and exudes a grandness that continues outside to the terraces and beyond. The walled-in grounds, lined with mature gardens and Italian Cypress trees, comes with a recently updated saline pool, six-car parking court, two-car garage, pergola, and carriage house containing two bedrooms and its own living, dining, and kitchen spaces. The main house itself also includes a fully-equipped mother-in-law suite on the ground level.
