OFF STREET PARKING. GARDEN. NO FLOOD INSURANCE. STUCCO. ELEVATOR. BASEMENT & ATTIC. NO EASEMENTS. FANTASTIC LIGHT.Corner of CHURCH & TRADD. This beautifully appointed 17th Century house, dated to 1697 by historian Louis Green, has a long history of association with preeminent artists of the day. Henrietta Johnston, first female artist in the colonies, lived & worked here 1708-1729. Other prominent artists include Elizabeth O'Neill Verner, Anna Heyward Taylor, West Fraser, Lese Corrigan, & now Mary Whyte, the internationally renowned watercolorist. One of the city's most prestigious art galleries - Coleman Fine Art, it is a long established destination for fine art. Rated ''NOTEABLE'' in THIS IS CHARLESTON, the 1944 quintessential rating of Charleston's important buildings. The room proportions & appointments are genteel 17th/18th Century.The Living Room has 4 large nine-over-nine windows, handsome wainscoting, crown molding, a fireplace, & quite exceptional light. Across the entry hall is the ideally proportioned Dining Room, behind which is a small hall with a powder room (a tub has been covered over by a cabinet). Then an office & a modest kitchen - just right for a gallery. For a home, the kitchen can be enlarged by incorporating the adjoining garden house. Inside the gate, past a fairy cottage, is a large patio, and the garden may well be the piece de resistance. It wends along through lush grass & verdant plantings to another patio and a pergola at the far end. The owners entertain lavishly. There is a dry basement that would make a nice wine cellar. NO FLOOD INSURANCE. TERMITE BOND. ELEVATOR. The property is easy to see whenever you'd like - and there is no substitute for a first hand look...and feel. Call me at 843 224-6651.
