Debbie Fisher of Handsome Properties Sells the Historic ‘James Mitchell House’ Listed at $4.35 Million


1403638117CHARLESTON, SC – Debbie Fisher, of Handsome Properties, recently reported the sale of 43 Meeting Street, listed at $4.35 million. The James Mitchell House, built circa 1798, is a beautiful Charleston single style home located on the iconic stretch of Meeting Street, in the heart of the desirable “South of Broad” neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina. Architecturally and historically notable, the home was built by James Mitchell, a prosperous cooper and later occupied by former director of the US Mint, Henry William de Saussure in the 1830s. The previous owners completed a thorough and extensive restoration, which included returning the double piazzas to the main house and installing an elevator.

This handsome, Carolopolis winning masonry home offers the best of the period with modern conveniences added for comfort and livability. It includes sunny and beautiful formal rooms, a fabulous kitchen, a grand family room set within the 18th century kitchen house to the rear of the main house, and an exceptionally landscaped lot with a private second entrance and parking. The home consists of six total bedrooms, including a chic master suite and spacious guest bedrooms, four full and two half bathrooms, and is approximately 5,900 square feet.


The South of Broad neighborhood is one of the oldest in Charleston, dating back to the 1700s when the main east-west thoroughfare in Charleston was Broad Way. This neighborhood also includes part of the Old Walled City of Charleston. Prominent citizens built spectacular mansions with meticulously landscaped gardens, intricate iron gates, and spectacular views of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers.

Today, South of Broad contains some of the most sought-after luxury real estate in the Lowcountry. These timeless, historic Charleston homes are nestled in a quiet neighborhood and reflect Charleston’s history as the South’s wealthiest port of the 1800s. Fine dining on East Bay and shopping on King Street are a short stroll or cycle away.
