32 South Battery dominates the row of mansions known world-wide simply as The Battery. The Colonel John Ashe House, built around 1782 has been meticulously restored in every detail from the brick flooring in the basement to the gold sphere on top of the cupola. This beautiful four story Charleston double house is located across from White Point Gardens with exceptional 360 degree views over rooftops, to Charleston Harbor, the Sullivans Island Lighthouse and Ft. Sumter from three piazzas and the cupola. The formal dining room illuminated by a series of wall sconces and Waterford crystal chandeliers can comfortably accommodate twenty-four for sit down dinners. The home’s graceful staircase ascends three floors allowing access to the spacious, luxurious master suite boasting two baths, large sitting room and walk-in closet; a library/den with custom cabinetry for books and collectables; guest wings and nursery wing complete with back stairs down to kitchen. Other amenities include heart pine flooring, exceptional woodwork, ornate dentil ceiling cornice, decorative mantles & wainscoting, six working fireplaces and gourmet kitchen with heartpine cabinetry, center island/breakfast bar & imported tiles. Of significant mention are the rare overmantel paintings, one an 18th century Italian landscape believed to be attributed to Giovanni Panini (1691-1765). The carriage house is a separate two story, 2BR/2BA 2092 sq. ft. brick house which has been fully restored. An electronic side gate provides added security. Enormous, beautifully landscaped private backyard with bricked courtyard provides the perfect outdoor entertaining and play area. The cupola is said to have served as an early lighthouse for Col. Ashe’s ship captains bringing goods into the thriving colonial port of Charleston. With its wooden pegs in the original framing, Black Cypress exterior and rope-like detail in the paneling, the home is a tribute to the shipping industry. This home provides a unique opportunity to purchase a rare piece of America’s earliest history.

Over our summer vacation, we went home to South Carolina and we visited the Battery in Downtown Charleston. We saw old cannons and cannon balls, Rainbow Row, the old slave market, Waterfront Park, a super old graveyard and church, and a few horse and carriage rides pass by us. Downtown Charleston is absolutely beautiful! We stopped in a local Fudge shop and had some of the most delicious ice cream ever! I definitely recommend visiting Charleson!

Offered for the first time in five generations, the c. 1837 Shackleford-Williams House is an exceptionally well-preserved antebellum mansion and one of the oldest homes on one of America’s most iconic streets. From Civil War bombardment to natural disasters, its historic details have withstood the test of time. Interior wood paneling and custom Tiffany-designed details still reflect the Charleston families who ensured its preservation for centuries. Sitting directly across from the Charleston Harbor, enjoy gorgeous views from the three-story bay windows and sea breezes from the patio and piazzas. The few alterations made over a century ago allow for the inclusion of modern amenities and ample parking without jeopardizing the dwelling’s historic character.
As part of my client appreciation , I love to stop by, say hello and drop off little pop-by gifts to all my clients, past clients and referral partners. For January and February I decided to drop off batteries for their fire alarms! My favorite pop-by gift is St. Patricks day!
