Description

This 2021 Carolopolis Award winning home is truly a treasure. Through the combined efforts of the owners, Architect Glen Keyes, Landscape Architect Sheila Wertimer, and Gochnauer Construction, the Daniel Legare House, c. 1760, has been brought back to its grandeur. The main house has a theater room, office, elevator and two laundry areas. The property also features a charming 2br guest house and has a rear courtyard with an authentic 1953 sq ft 19th century Irish pub aprobably Charleston’s finest private entertainment venue. The home is considered to be the oldest surviving home in Ansonborough and was the first home in the city to be protected by a Historic Charleston Foundation easement. Lots of this size, 17,860 sq ft, rarely come on the market. This is truly a rare opportunity.
