Historic Charleston, SC
I was especially proud to call Charleston my home as I took some friends around town this past weekend. Yes, Charleston is beautiful in so many ways, but simply taking time to appreciate all the history and architecture that helps make it so beautiful is part of what these out-of-towners loved the most.
Just imagining a home that tips the scales at 10,000 square feet that some unknown family over 200 years ago was not only lucky, but wealthy enough to call their private residence is sure to boggle most minds. But actually SEEING this home's original structure and original details brings it to a whole new level.
Here are some pictures that help bring that imagery to life. Three incredible floors connected by a winding grand staircase ...truly regal!
The original architectural detail in the ceiling of the top floor - which can be seen from the foyer - is in exceptional condition.
Now, the kicker..... Today, fast forward about 200 years, the structure is now divided into about 9 seperate apartments each with their own unique details from centuries ago.
What a treat for these residents to live in such an amazing historic home right in the heart of Charleston. And as if that wasn't enough, EVERY tenant has their own parking space! Clearly, an enormous perk for city living!! The wonderful part about this is that Charleston is filled with so many homes of this caliber - and better! - on just about every corner.... Part of what makes Charleston... well, ... Charleston.
