Agent Remarks

Built in 1760, the James Simmons House at 37 Meeting Street has remained a prominent icon throughout Charleston's history; it witnessed the Revolutionary War's British Occupation and served as Confederate headquarters under General Pierre Beauregard during the Civil War. Other notable owners include Otis Mills of the famed Mills House, and Governor Robert Gibbes. Today, it is one of the finest restored homes in Charleston, boasting a private-gated entrance off Weims Court, a concealed landscaped garden, graciously sized rooms, updated kitchen and baths, a beautiful wine cellar, and an abundance of handcrafted historic details (from the renowned wrought-iron gate to the beautiful plaster-work). All of this rests on a large, double-lot property covering approximately one-third of an acre. Blending history with modern convenience, no expense was spared during the three-year renovation. This is a unique opportunity to own an exceptional piece of Charleston's history that rarely comes on the market.
