Stunning Historic Home
It isn’t often that an opportunity arises to own a preserved piece of Charleston’s history. This delightful historic home at 27 Lamboll Street is one such opportunity. On the corner of Legare and Lamboll streets, this South of Broad home was originally built in the 1850s and was first owner by local carriage manufacturer Richard Reynolds. It has aged with grace, many of its original features still pristine including intricate crown molding, beautiful wide plank heart pine floors, original wood burning fireplaces, and the original glass windowpanes. The main entrance to the home, on Legare Street, opens into a breathtaking foyer defined by the free-standing spiral staircase—one of the only ones on the peninsula.
A catering kitchen, a bedroom suite, a family room, and a wine room are all found on the first floor of the home making this a great floor for entertaining or spending time with family. Period brick and an original fireplace give character and warmth to the family room and a built-in mahogany wine chest and separate wine closet define the regal wine room. Just beyond these two rooms is an iconic Charleston rose garden. A central brick pathway lined by manicured rose bushes leads to a peaceful fountain with a classical bronze statue. Ivy-covered walls and hedges add privacy to the outdoor haven and there is a covered space beneath the second story piazza that is ideal for a meal al fresco!
The formal rooms are located on the second floor of the home. The formal living room and dining room include original fireplaces, ornate moldings, and chandeliers and are connected by a central foyer for cohesive flow. Both rooms also have multiple sets of French doors which extend to the second floor piazza with views of the rose garden below. Beyond the dining room is the luxurious chef’s kitchen which includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and glass French doors that lead out onto a Shakespearean balcony overlooking the dark green leaves of the magnolia trees outside.
The third and fourth floors of the home are home to the remaining four bedroom suites. The master suite has a large decorative fireplace, hardwood floors, a delicate chandelier, and a sunlit bathroom with a soaking tub, dual vanities, separate shower, and access to the third story porch. The other bedrooms also have hardwood floors, walk-in closets, fireplaces, and private access to either a piazza or sundeck. There are two stories of covered piazzas on the second and third floors that provide shaded space to enjoy the beauty of Charleston, and the fourth story sun deck gives unobstructed views of the city’s rooftops and glimmers of the harbor.
South of Broad Location
In addition to the stunning condition of this preserved and updated historic home, its location South of Broad places it blocks away from many of the most famous Charleston restaurants, shops, art galleries, museums, and the iconic waterfront. This gem of a home is a very rare chance to establish a home in a beautiful historic house in one of the most iconic parts of Charleston.
