Here’s an opportunity to experience historic Charleston, SC—one of the city’s most celebrated residences has landed on the market for the grand price of $13,850,000.

According to a plaque on the grounds, the home was built by the Rev. Paul Trapier Gervais in the early 1830s. It sits on one of the largest residential lots in the city.

The novelist Josephine Pinckney, author of “Three O’Clock Dinner,” was born in the house in 1895, and the property was the original location of the Gaud School for Boys, which operated from 1906 to 1918 in a two-story brick building in the backyard.

The brick school building in the backyard is long gone. Instead, you’ll find lush gardens and lawns, grand piazzas overlooking the greenery, an elegant gazebo, a pool and spa, a guesthouse, and a detached three-car garage.

The main residence has been meticulously updated and restored with an eye toward melding classical architecture with modern-day convenience.

There are traditional light-filled rooms with soaring ceilings, museum-quality wood finishes, and generous proportions. But there’s also a modern kitchen with two islands, two sinks, two dishwashers, a double refrigerator/freezer, a built-in coffee maker, and a double Wolf oven.

The home is located in one of Charleston’s most celebrated historic neighborhoods, called “South of Broad,” where you’ll find Rainbow Row, a collection of pastel-colored,19th-century townhomes.

It’s also the setting for the novel by the same name by celebrated author Pat Conroy.
