Charleston, SC, June 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- When you think of homes in Charleston, South Carolina, your mind instantly pictures the stately plantations and colorful Singles that embrace the foundation of this historic city. South of Broad is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the area, situated perfectly between the Charleston Harbor and the bustling cobblestone streets of downtown.
Nestled in the exclusive South of Broad neighborhood is the historic Charleston Single at 59 Tradd Street. Built in 1773, this Single was the home of the famous Alicia Rhett, an American actress and painter who is best remembered for her role as India Wilkes in Gone with the Wind. The original structure of this home still stands strong today.
The home was completely renovated in 2006 with the guidance of local architect Randolph Martz and builder Harper Finucan, and includes a modern kitchen and dual master bedrooms. The gardens, designed by Dargan Landscape Architects, welcome you into a private garden complete with trickling fountain. Painted a golden yellow with moss green hurricane shutters and full double porches, this home welcomes you with southern charm. Exposed beams and fireplace give a cozy feeling to the interior, and compliment the updated furnishings throughout the rest of this historic home.
