    Description

    Situated on the South side of Broad Street in the heart of Charleston's Historic District sits 95 Broad Street, a significant early American house that has accommodated and been owned by noteworthy Charlestonians since its construction. This classically elegant Charleston townhouse was built in 1770 and meticulously renovated from the ground up in 2012. Located in Charleston's South of Broad neighborhood, this is one of the most beloved buildings in historic downtown Charleston. Named for the original owner and known to historians as "The Major Peter Bocquet House," this is one of the oldest residences in the city, retaining its original Georgian facade and interiors. The interior of 95 Broad boasts several Georgian and Adams style original features with delicate Rococo detailsin their mantel surrounds, intermingled with simple but elegant neoclassical details. 95 Broad Street has been lovingly restored by skilled artisans and is a perfect home for the connoisseur of fine colonial architecture on one of Charleston's most historic streets. Each of the 3 main floors feature nine-over-nine-pane double hung windows, 12-foot ceilings, long leaf heart pine floors, and intricate, deep crown molding. Complete with large chandeliers and period fireplaces, 2 of which are registered on the Federal Register of historic homes. This magnificent house features a dramatic salon, a ballroom with Juliet balcony, grand dining room with floor to ceiling wainscot walls, 5 fireplaces, 3 full and 2 half baths, and a full 1-bedroom apartment in the 4th floor pied--terre. Known for its iconic persimmon "lime-washed" exterior and its original, often-cited in architectural histories, rare entry surround of the front easternmost entrance - which appears to be stone from a distance but is actually sculpted stucco work. During the renovation in 2012, traditional iron-work students from the American College of the Building Arts were commissioned to design and create hand-forged gas lantern brackets for the Broad Street faade. They drew inspiration from the famous ironwork at the Sword Gates house around the corner on Legare Street, and the distinctive lanterns are unlike anything else along Broad Street. This historic home, originally designed to provide a live-work lifestyle for the Bocquet family provides the quintessential backdrop for entertaining family and friends. Imagine a home that meets the needs of discriminating homeowners, just steps from Historic District amenities, premier shopping and dining, schools, churches, parks and the Battery, 95 Broad is undoubtedly an exquisite home for all occasions. A Charleston landmark, this stately home has been featured of the Preservation Society of Charleston's annual Fall Tour of Homes. 95 Broad Street is situated near the intersection of Broad and Meeting Streets, an area defined by historians as the "Four Corners of Law" where City Hall, the County Courthouse, the Federal Courthouse and St. Michaels Church are located, each on facing corners.
