This Ivy-Covered Charleston Escape Is Listed for $5 Million
Between the ivy-covered brick and its tucked-away location on a quiet street in Charleston’s esteemed South of Broad neighborhood, you’d never guess this house was built in the 21st century. It fully blends in with its circa-18th and 19th century neighbors despite being built in 2002.

The 7,017 square-foot house at 15 Orange Street, currently listed by Debbie Fisher of Handsome Properties, Inc. for $5 million, has old-world charm both inside and out. The home features elaborate moldings and beautiful wide-plank hardwood floors, along with a stunning outdoor area complete with dual piazzas, a pool, and a pristinely landscaped garden that looks like it’s been around much longer than 16 years. Also on the property is a two-story guest house, if the four bedrooms in the main house aren’t enough for all the company you’d surely attract living here. Scroll through the photos below to take a look at some of this home’s beautiful spaces.
The front facade of the house is fairly unassuming, likely a nod to Charleston’s famous long and skinny single houses commonly built in the 18th and 19th centuries. How beautiful is that ivy-covered wall and gate, though?
The Living Room
Inside on the first floor, there’s a unique octagonal drawing room off the foyer, complete with its own wet bar, plus access out to the garden via a few sets of French doors. Additionally, there’s a formal dining room connecting the drawing room and an expansive, updated kitchen—one of the biggest perks of building a modern house instead of outfitting an older one to meet homeowners’ 21st-century needs.
Though there’s plenty of indoor living space at 15 Orange Street, the secluded outdoor area in the back of the house is primed for spending all parts of your day there. The historically inclined details (like those aged shutters and intricate pediments over the windows) continue around the entirety of the house, never letting anyone on to its true age.
Dine al fresco on the long terrace off the main house, where pops of blue and orange accent the neutral hues of the brick, stone, and greenery.
The Guest House
If the sprawling main house seemed lacking in any quaint charm to you, the guest house is likely right up your alley. The two-story cottage has one bedroom, one bathroom, a full kitchen, cozy living room, and even its own balcony overlooking the garden.
