Property Description

Your opportunity to renovate one of Downtown Charleston's most grand and iconic homes has arrived. The stunning c. 1832 Vanderhorst Mansion a/k/a the family's "suburban villa" in the heart of Wraggborough, was built by Elias Vanderhorst. At the time, the Vanderhorst family owned most of Kiawah, which was the location of their primary home. This incredible stucco-over-brick home on high ground, is solid as ever after nearly 200 years of Charleston history. The elevated Greek Revival home features semi-circular, brownstone double staircases to reach the incredible front piazza. The exterior is considered to have some of the finest wrought-iron in the city. The interior of this home is essentially a blank slate, with 14' ceilings on the main level, enormous windows, and incrediblearchitectural moldings and detail that are rarely seen. This house was made for gracious entertaining that flows from inside to out. The second level is currently laid out with two very large master suites with 12' ceilings and french doors to the second floor piazza (which previously had a roof that is thought to have been lost to an explosion and subsequent fire in 1865). The third level can be configured in multiple ways, but has plumbing in place. Absolutely stunning views of Charleston from both the second and third floor. The ground level is laid out with two, one-bed/one-bath apartments, one of which is currently occupied. Post renovation, these units would likely rent for $2200+ per month. The ground floor could also be reintegrated into the main house. The Preservation Society holds a historic easement on the EXTERIOR of the home. Secluded secret garden located off the left rear of the home, and would make a perfect spot for a pool. Main house is laid out with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Ground level is two 1-bedroom apartments each with 1 full bath.
