CHARLESTON | SC

60 Montagu Street

Sold after years on and off the market.

“You can’t find another property like this one in Charleston,” states Preservation Architect Glenn Keyes smiled. And he’s right. This one of a kind, historical beauty, with  9345 sq ft of floor to ceiling impeccably restored Federal Style estate waited for the perfect buyer, post auction, and never looked back. Saturated in Charleston charm, 60 Montagu Street resonates with its richly historical neighbors and deep appreciation for fine arts. We appreciated it too.  And we sold it to the perfect new owner to honor its long history.

Continuous price reductions when on the market.

Welcome home to the Gaillard-Bennett House, Circa 1801. This home has been meticulously restored in full to its original glory. ”You can’t find another property like this one in Charleston,” states Preservation Architect Glenn Keyes. The Federal-style main house consists of six well-proportioned bedrooms and five and one-half baths. Along with the main house are a restored former kitchen house and carriage house with additional guest quarters and a reconstructed tack house containing all the mechanicals for the property. The 1.25-acre property has expansive gardens, a newly built pool house, salt water gunite pool with infinity edge all beautifully maintained. Walk up the elegant stone double staircase where you are greeted by one of the most outstanding homes in Charleston.
