Trust us: houses like the Federal-style beauty at 60 Montagu Street in Charleston don’t come around very often.
Every one of the Gaillard-Bennett House’s 9,345 square feet has been impeccably restored to its original 1801 glory, including some of the finest examples of decorative plaster art we’ve ever seen. The restoration work on the cornices, mantels and ceiling medallions is truly remarkable—in the main drawing room and dining rooms in particular. And the attention to detail doesn’t stop when you exit the six-bedroom main house. The 1.25-acre lot boasts meticulously landscaped gardens, a restored four-bedroom kitchen house, a carriage house, a reconstructed tack house and a brand new saltwater pool and adjacent pool house.
If you’ve got $12,950,000 to spend, head over to the on-site auction on, May 5th. If not, scroll down for a free tour of the gorgeous Charleston home:
