Here is a historic Charleston home that might interest you:

This historic home was built in 1760 and this 3-story stucco over brick family-style house is just waiting for the right owner to appreciate it. Note the stunning garden, designed by famous landscaper and designer Loutrel Briggs, the person most specifically in charge of the improvement of Charleston’s unique garden style. A separate kitchen house on the property can also act as a guest cabin! The main home–3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, is spacious and light. You’ll love the living room, lounge area and second floor library, all with exquisite woodwork. When you are ready to own a piece of history in this historic city, this listing is just what you have been seeking. A house with this much appeal won’t be available for very long so we recommend scheduling an appointment to see it as soon as possible.
