If you’ve ever strolled along the famous Charleston Battery, then you know just how beautiful the slate promenade is. It's shaded by the area’s lush tree canopy and offers a sweeping scenic view of the Charleston Harbor. More than just that, though, are the layers and layers of history defining the Holy City’s first line of defense and the historical output of houses that lie just beyond the fortified seawall. Although every home isn’t quite as peaceful and spectacular as the rivers bordering them, this three-story structure on Charleston’s Battery comes pretty close.
The brick Colonial double house, also known as the Dr. Robert Barnwell Rhett House, was erected in 1928. However, the home includes sturdy woodwork from the 1830s that was acquired from the Holmes Mansion. Presently, the brick house is constructed on a rare double lot in Charleston’s South of Broad neighborhood area and frames the Ashley River and Cooper River, just as they curve through South Carolina's Lowcountry. Not to mention, the 4,582-square-foot charmer has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, and quite a few unexpected features. In addition, this revival home affords privacy and comfort, thanks to the brick and iron-wrought gate surrounding it. The modern landscaping is really this beauty’s calling card, though. From the majestic porch scene perfect for alfresco entertaining to the huge oak trees, it can all be yours for a whopping $6.1 million.
