istoric Charleston is known for glamor, romance and most of all civility. Long known for its houses of exquisite style and grace, the Historic District preserves the legacy of the past in houses of distinction. Nowhere is this more evident than in one of the city's most magnificent settings, Broad Street. This peaceful sanctuary within walking distance to the Battery and just about every area of historical significance, boasts some of the finest residences of past and present. Traditional design elements echoing the Gothic revival and Palladian influences are everywhere. Large and small, these Charleston homes reflect the graceful lifestyle of a bygone era.
Our Broad Street home is patterned after just such a romantic period in a lovely, town home with surprising conveniences. The familiar two-tier porch in the front has always been a haven to catch summer breezes by locals who knew this long ago. Tall windows allow plenty of sun light and facilitated the cooling of interior spaces. In typical Charleston fashion, the house is capped with a terra cotta red, standing seam metal roof that echoes the soothing sound of rain drops under the predictable summer afternoon shower.
