This South of Broad, Home Offered at: $14,999,0009 13 17,142 sqft
Legare Street’s oldest residence, known locally as ”The Sword Gate,” was built circa 1790-1803 and is located on high ground in a high AE flood zone. This Federal-style residence is privately nestled behind its famous front gates which were originally commissioned for the City’s Guard House but rejected because the proposed price was too steep. Sword Gate was originally constructed by the great-granddaughter of Solomon Legare, the man for whom Legare Street is named. This elegant estate of over 17,000 square feet includes 9 bedrooms, 13 full and 3 half baths and is one of the most impressive and historically significant homes on Peninsular Charleston. Adamesque woodwork, plasterwork and composition work enhance many of the most formal spaces including the grand ballroom and dining room.
