It’s not every day that the chance to own a piece of history in the heart of the South’s favorite city comes along, but when it does, you better believe that we are all over it.
Naturally, we’ve been drooling over The Johnston House, a sprawling plantation-style home on Charleston’s iconic South Battery, ever since it hit the market for a cool $7.4 million last week.
Dating back to 1835, this 7,520-square-foot home is absolutely dripping with Southern charm. Seriously, can you say porches! Located at 44 South Battery Street, this historic property includes a main house with four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, and a three-bedroom two-bathroom kitchen house, complete with a legal bed and breakfast license. History buffs will appreciate the home’s countless authentic details, including its original wood picket fence on masonry piers and carved lattice gates, original heart pine flooring, and 10 re-lined fireplaces.
