Historic South of Broad Stunner Hits the Market in Charleston
A beautiful, historic home with one of the most prestigious addresses in Charleston, South Carolina, could be yours. All you need is just shy of $4 million!
Charlestonians know that properties like the one at 6 Legare Street don’t hit the market very often, and for good reason.
Nestled among towering live oaks, the Wilkinson House has been a South of Broad fixture since 1885. This 5,012-square-foot residence boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and every modern convenience. Currently listed by Helen Geer of William Means Real Estate, the 136-year-old home was recently upgraded to include all new shutters, completely restored piazzas, new exterior finishes, and a top-of-the line chef’s kitchen.
Other highlights include soaring ceilings, a sprawling main suite, a private walled garden, and rooftop views.
“It is truly a fabulous home,” Geer told Southern Living.
The home at 6 Legare Street is currently listed for $3,950,000. Join us for a tour?
Sidelights and a transom let plenty of natural light pour into the foyer, where original hardwood take the spotlight.

Relax with friends and family in the spacious den that features remote-controlled shades and a working, wood-burning fireplace.
