What We Love

Renovated, historic, garden, parking, non-flooding, masonry, and charm - no other home on the market offers the full package of 26 Church Street in the most coveted part of town.

- Lyles Geer


Set on the corner of Church and Atlantic Streets, the circa 1794 James Watt House recently was completely renovated by the best specialists in historic Charleston (Tupper Builders, e. e. fava architects, and landscape architect Glen Gardner). In 2017, the house earned the Carolopolis Pro Merito award for maintaining the Charleston single's iconic character and patina while completely modernizing to the highest standards in electrical, plumbing, structural, and more. Complete with lock-and-leave convenience (including automated smart-home features for remote access and security), a full-service property manager, and gated parking, 26 Church offers the best of downtown living. No expense was spared nor detail overlooked in joining the best of old and new.
