20  South Battery 29401, Charleston, SC - Property For Sale
20 South Battery is the premier Charleston residence, prominent for its location and presence as a historic and social feature of the community. Local businessman Samuel Stevens built this antebellum home in 1843, selling it after the war to Colonel William Lathers, a native of Georgetown, South Carolina and an officer in the Union Army. In 1874 the home sold to South Carolina's Calhoun family patriarch, Andrew Calhoun Simonds, a well-known Charleston banker and entrepreneur. Today the residence is owned by Simonds' great-great-grandson. Classic elements abound within its expansive halls and rooms, including a spiral staircase ascending four floors, eight elegant fireplaces, and original wood parquet flooring. The main structure is a private residence that faces stunning water views of Charleston Harbor with legendary Fort Sumter in the distance. As Susan Sully described in Charleston Style, "the interior seems to dwell in an international time warp that could exist in Venice, Paris or even Pompeii" (Sully 1999, 74). To enter the tall front doors of this home is to enter an idyllic wonderland of geometric mosaic encaustic tiles with elegant cornices and pilasters in the expression of the Greek Rival and Second Empire styles. The ballroom, a focal point of the main entrance, provided the meeting room and founding of the oldest community-based historic preservation organization in America, the Charleston Preservation Society. Highlighted as a primary Charleston landmark in the ABC miniseries North and South (1985) starring Patrick Swayze and James Read, the main residence is gracefully clad in mellowed pink stucco with surrounding white piazzas and a whimsically unique mansard roof. The large adjoining garden and rear dependency hold The Battery Carriage House Inn. This elegant, successful establishment is a relaxing oasis in the midst of Charleston Harbor's White Point Garden and Battery. With eleven intimate guest rooms, each gracefully decorated to complement the time and theme of its historical lineage, the Inn is perfect for a romantic getaway. All rooms feature a private entrance from the brick-lined carriageway and the Charleston gardens beyond. This offer is a rare opportunity to purchase the most impressive of all income-producing historic properties.

The property consists of a 3670 square foot main owner's quarters, with the remaining 2400 square feet currently utilized as 4 rental apartments. The main house has 4 huge bedrooms, and 3 full baths. In addition to the 3670 square feet of heated and cooled space, the home boasts over 1800 square feet of piazzas that wrap around the front of the home, which add to the grand feeling of the home. Jeffersonian windows open to the piazzas to enhance their use and enjoyment in the wonderful tropical climate here in Charleston. The 1st floor opens up to a grand foyer with ornate 5 foot wainscoting, a multiple landing staircase, 12 foot ceilings, antique crystal chandelier, functioning fireplace, original hardwood floors with mahogany inlay, and massive functioning pocket doors. Many of the features follow through to the living room and dining room, which are bathed in a wonderful late afternoon sunlight. The rooms naturally flow together creating the perfect home for entertaining large parties with ease and grace. The private den or library, situated in the rear of the home, offers a quiet place to retreat to, and features a wet bar. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bath is quite large, with a fabulous claw footed bathtub. Much of the original charm of the home has been preserved, including functioning transom lights and original dual gas/ electric light fixtures.
