Lovingly restored over an 8-year period by the current owners, this iconic Charleston estate is offered for the first time in almost 60 years. Rated as ''excellent'' for architectural significance, this fine mansion was built in 1845 as the home of the Ravenel family until the late 1930s. It has only had two owners since. Considered one of the grandest on High Battery, with the clearest view of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Along with its original outbuildings, the house has been meticulously preserved following the extensive interior and exterior renovation by the current owner. The second floor drawing room, boasting 12' to 14' ceilings, may be the largest in the city, running the entire width of the house with fireplaces at either end, offering commanding views.

Supplements: The lengthy renovation included utilizing historically correct materials, new shutter system, repointing, new roofing, HVAC systems, lath and plaster walls and ceiling medallions, kitchens and baths throughout. With multiple outbuildings intact, various opportunities can be utilized, whether as a 15,000 sqft residence, or with income producing components, or even the possibility of luxury condos, if desired. Sited on over 1/2 acre, multiple parking, covered and uncovered, for six or more. This home is truly for the discerning buyer who desires the utmost in authentic Charleston architectural grandeur in truly the best waterfront location in Historic Charleston.
