Looking for a change of scenery? Why not head to Charleston! This storied South Carolina town offers incredible second shelters for vacation, retirement, or simply a new start.
Take your pick between two fantastic offerings in our latest Splurge vs. Steal.
Splurge: Church Street Charleston Beauty With History And Pedigree For $9.5M
We featured this stunner back in March of last year and it has since seen a price cut, down to $9.5 million from $9.995 million. Never the less, we think it’s worth another look. Don’t you?
First off, the grand estate on 69 Church Street is a dreamy Charleston find with every luxury imaginable. And it is a great example of tasteful preservation too. In fact, per the listing, “69 Church Street is one of the largest pre-Revolutionary houses in the city, with a grand estate lot stretching back to Ford’s Court.”
The seven-bedroom, eight-full-and-one-half-bathroom gem affords a ballroom, a cypress paneled library, and a total of 15 fireplaces with King of Prussia marble surrounds. You’ll find bespoke woodwork and eye-catching delft tiles, as well as a sumptuous owner’s quarters and exquisite living spaces to unwind.
Two unique attributes of the property include third-floor ceilings and windows that are the same height as the windows on the first two floors, in addition to all bedrooms being en suite! This is a rarity for a home of this age.
Aside from the richly appointed main house, there is a kitchen building with guest quarters, five landscaped garden rooms, and one of downtown’s first swimming pools. Additionally, the listing provides a detailed historic account of the home which offers a glimpse at its lasting prestige. Be sure to check it out and pore over the breathtaking photos!

Steal: Beresford Creek Beauty With Stately Interiors And Private Dock for $3.3M
Now, onto our steal. This may not be a historic estate, but you can still live large for several million less than our splurge. It’s a beauty with four-bedrooms, four-full-and-two-half bathrooms, as well as a sparkling resort pool and access to the surrounding islands and marsh.
This is low-country living at its finest! You’ll love the 15-foot private deep water dock, landscaped gardens, and fully equipped chef’s kitchen.
Plus, the incredible updates abound, including dramatic southern vistas, soaring ceilings, Brazilian walnut floors, and a striking Schonbek chandelier, to name a few.
Generous living areas, comfortable guest suites, and ample spaces to entertain inside and out add to the appeal.
Don’t sleep on this one if you’re in the market for a piece of Charleston luxury.
