Back in February, we took a look at the most expensive listing on the market in Charleston, 60 Montagu Street (also known as the Gaillard-Bennet House), located in historic downtown. Its list price currently sits at a cool $12,950,000 which easily makes it the priciest home on the market here in Charleston. Although 60 Montagu is a big home, measuring 9,345 square feet, it is not the largest home in Charleston that is currently for sale.
That title belongs to 20 South Battery street, another historically significant Charleston home. The home was originally constructed in 1843 and bought by the Calhoun family in 1874. The property changed hands several times through out the 20th century and was most notably owned by what is now the Preservation Society of Charleston. Out of what’s currently for sale, this is the largest home in Charleston measuring 15,669 square feet. It features a total of 17 bedrooms and 16 full baths. It is listed for $5,500,000.
There is still a quaint, historic style bed and breakfast that operates out of the carriage house adjacent to the main house at 20 South Battery street. The Battery Carriage House Inn features 11 unique guestrooms elegantly decorated to recreate the historical roots and rich culture that the main residence embodies. See the full listing for 20 South Battery here.
