Nathanial Ingraham House Sells for $6.2 Million
Posted by Annie Young — February 7, 2017
CHARLESTON, SC - Handsome Properties, the Charleston based luxury real estate brokerage, represented the buyer and the seller in the 6.2 million dollar sale of 2 Water Street on December 6, 2016. The sale came in as the 4th highest sale on the Charleston Peninsula of 2016.
The circa 1810 home, also referred to as the Nathanial Ingraham House, is located on the corner of Water and East Bay Streets along the “High Battery,” or sidewalk that runs along the Charleston Harbor. Unlike the rest of the houses also oriented to the harbor, the entry of this house faces Water Street.
With over 7,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, the home was lovingly restored in the early 2000s and returned to its former grandeur in the past decade. Today, the home remains one of the few single-family residences on the Battery.
Aspects of the Federal style home have been meticulously reconstructed inside and out. Fortunately, various pieces of the original interior décor have lasted; frame moldings, original heart pine floors, Adamesque fireplace mantels, the cedar ceiling beams, and Venetian chandeliers. French doors open onto the piazza from the kitchen, custom ironwork gate the driveway, courtyard, and garden.
The sale of 2 Water Street demonstrates the strength of the real estate market in Charleston.
