On the corner of Legare and Tradd Streets, in the heart of historic Charleston's most exclusive neighborhood, rests this exquisite, turn-key property at 36 Legare Street. Built circa 1860, this traditional Charleston home underwent an extensive, high-end renovation in 2017-2018, employing some of the city's most sought-after design, building, and restoration professionals: Bello-Garris architects, Magee Ratcliff Construction, LLC, and Wertimer-Cline landscape architects.Updated with the highest standards, the owners at 36 Legare Street spared no expense during this year long project. The list of renovations is comprehensive, including the replacement and/or updating of all major systems including a new copper roof, new HVAC systems with high grade air purification systems, all new plumbing and much more. Enhancing livability, maximizing natural light, and allowing for entertaining ease were key objectives that guided multiple interior floor plan changes made during the renovation. Encouraging indoor-outdoor living for year-round enjoyment was also paramount. The owners commissioned the structural rebuilding of the upper piazza, an iconic private outdoor space in Charleston, where generations have retreated to enjoy a late afternoon breeze. On the ground level, the newly designed and installed French doors on the rear portion allow for seamless flow onto a terrace, private behind a brick wall and enhanced with a water feature, landscape lighting, and lush, low-maintenance landscaping. The garden re-design also included the restoration of the Philip Simmons iron gate, a new outdoor storage structure, and the addition of a brick-paved, gated parking space (large enough for an SUV). A rare opportunity for a turn-key, fully renovated historic home in one of the city's most enviable residential locations, 36 Legare Street will satisfy the most discerning luxury home buyer.
