Property Description


Single Family Detached

Rich in history, distinguished in character, and ideally located, the Palmer House is one of the most well-known properties in historic Charleston. This magnificent estate sits grandly on High Battery and overlooks the Charleston Harbor. A prominent pink masonry wall surrounds the rare double lot and encompasses the carriage house and the peninsula's first in-ground pool. The original arches on the first floor where the carriages would ride in and out remain intact. Upon entering the main residence, an attractive staircase paneled in black Cypress with cantilevered steps captures your attention. Beautiful hand carvings can be found along the mahogany banisters in each of the five stairways. The manor reflects the Gothic Revival style with black marble mantels, wide woodwork and Greek Revival acanthus decorations. A gracious drawing room showcases 14 ft ceilings as well as floor to ceiling windows that frame the picturesque harbor views. The fireplace in the drawing room is one of nine fireplaces found throughout featuring Black African marble with strata of gold. The grand, classic Charleston style piazzas allow you to enjoy harbor breezes and emphasize stunning views. Enjoy watching ships and sailboats pass by, breath-taking sunrises, and the glistening moonlight reflecting off the water above Fort Sumter at night. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Charleston's history and restore it to the stature it was built for in 1847.
