We are head over heels for the detailed moldings, French doors, and sun-soaked interiors, but it’s the fabulous back porch, pool, and gardens that really impress. A separate carriage house has been transformed into a well-appointed guest suite. And the formal gardens by E. Gaillard Johnson are lushly landscaped to perfection!
So many details, so little time. But you better act fast! This stunning Charleston splurge won’t last long.
