What We Love

Beautifully maintained and updated with modern comforts, this charming South of Broad home is as ideal for a lock-and-leave lifestyle as it is for low maintenance year-round living.

- Leize Gaillard


Dreaming of the perfect Charleston pied-a-terre? Look no further than 16 Tradd Street. Situated on one of downtown Charleston's most coveted blocks, this masonry home is steeped in history and 18th century charm. Updated with modern comforts and featuring a charming private courtyard, this 3 bed/2.5 bath home is as ideal for a lock-and-leave lifestyle as it is for low maintenance year-round living. This South of Broad home has been lovingly maintained and enjoyed by its current owners over the last fifteen years; take one step inside, and it is easy to see why. From street level, enter into a generously-sized living room, featuring a beautiful antique mantle, moldings, and high ceilings.Through a tall-cased opening, you'll find a large dining room, complete with a charming corner cabinet and French doors leading to a private, brick-walled bluestone patio. Rounding out the first floor is a bright and compact, fully remodeled in 2013, and featuring new insulation, tile flooring, custom cabinetry, and quartz countertops, as well as another door leading to the private back patio with outdoor storage cabinets, brick raised beds, and room for outdoor cooking, dining, and entertaining. The first floor also features an under-stair powder room. Up a gentle set of stairs from the living room, the second level of 16 Tradd is a dedicated master suite, including a large, bright bedroom and a separate office with built-ins, laundry, and sunny views of the nearby Peoples Building. The beautifully renovated master bathroom features marble tile, a large walk-in shower, and a skylight. On the third floor are two additional secondary bedrooms and a shared hall bathroom. The third floor bedrooms offer abundant natural light, generous space and ceiling heights, and charming Charleston views of Tradd Street to the front and St. Philip's Church steeple to the rear. Located on some of the highest ground in historic Charleston, 16 Tradd is steps from iconic Rainbow Row and is just a few blocks from Waterfront Park, the Battery, the Dock Street Theatre, and numerous world class restaurants, making this location ideal for exploring Charleston on foot. Longtime neighbor to 16 Tradd, Virginia Gourdin, quoted Charleston's legendary historian, Samuel Gaillard Stoney, as saying that this block of Tradd Street (Bedon's Alley to East Bay) may be the last block in Charleston where all of the houses on both sides of the street still date from the 1700's. Own a part of Charleston's past and enjoy all that Charleston's present has to offer with this special home.
