In one of the prettiest cities, on one of the City's grandest streets, on one of the largest lots South of Broad sits the Reverend Paul Trapier Gervais House. Just steps from the Battery, this c.1835 Charleston Single represents a timeless collaboration between the past and present. Classic and chic best describe this meticulously restored family home, blending classical architecture with a modern day twist for comfort and luxurious living in the 21st century. One enters the property through the privacy door onto one of 2 grand piazzas overlooking the expansive garden. Once inside the home you will be drawn into the light filled rooms with soaring ceilings, museum quality wood finishes and grand proportions. Other notable features in the main house include an updated kitchen, with 2 sinks, 2 dishwashers, double refrigerator/ freezer, built in coffee maker and a double Wolf oven. There are 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths, a sun drenched family room, den with brick walls and exposed beams, paneled office, velvet walled library, elevator, secret wine cellar and a coveted mud room complete with lockers, 2 full size washer/dryers and a pet shower!
The detached 3 car garage and guest house provides flexibility for use as a gym, pool house and/ or a mother-in-law suite.

Beyond its architectural and historical significance, is the expansive .68 acre park like setting with spectacular gardens, pool, hot tub, and gazebo.
This garden is the perfect place to entertain both family and friends. Whether sipping wine by the pool, hosting a garden party or football game with family and friends, you will enjoy your private urban oasis.

This property is on high ground and has had no water anywhere on the property in storms of recent years.
