Luxe Listing: The Robert Trail Chisholm House
Located in the heart of the “Estate Block” of lower Legare Street, the Robert Trail Chisholm house is surrounded by the largest concentration of historic mansions in the city of Charleston. Built in 1838, the estate sits on nearly half an acre of land in a quiet, park-like setting. The grounds of the home, as well as the main residence, were recently restored in an extensive 2-year project lead by local architect Glenn Keyes.
A stately home with features dating back to the early 19th century, Robert Trail Chisholm House is brimming with expert craftsmanship and charming period details. Cornice moldings, mantels, stair rails, and hardwood flooring have been sensitively restored, breathing new life into the elegant home. Updated systems were also added to the home to modernize the living experience including HVAC, a restored kitchen and bathrooms, as well as new plumbing and electrical.
Upon entering the home, wrought iron gates open to reveal a stone trail leading to the front door. Along the trail lies a manicured lawn area which is only steps away from the pool and patio on the property. With 3 floors and over 7,000 square feet of space in the main house, the residence offers ample space for entertaining and stunning views of the surrounding gardens from nearly every window. Inside, each of the 5 bedrooms has ceilings that are at least 10 feet tall, en suite bathrooms and classic accents including wood beam ceilings, fireplaces, and large welcoming windows.
Additional features include parking for up to six cars on the grounds and a sun-filled hyphen that connects the main house and the kitchen houses.
