Post-Revolutionary War Charleston house on the market for $6.5M
A two-story, post-Revolutionary War house on the Charleston peninsula is on the market for $6.5 million two years after it sold for $3.8 million.
Robertson Howland Properties recently listed the 6,513-square-foot residence at 48 Bull St. in Harleston Village.
The property, known as the Emanuel Antonio House, is being offered with the opportunity to reestablish the house as a one-family residence or to maintain as rental units. The deep-lot site also brings an option to build guest houses, pool or other structure on the parcel’s rear lot.
The home is divided into two separate living quarters, each with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The house also has two kitchens and a basement.
The interior features 12-foot heart pine beam ceilings as well as exposed brick. The kitchens come with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, modern design elements and marble countertops.
“It could easily be converted to a single-unit home,” listing agent Charles Constant said.
“What makes it so unique is that it’s on three-quarters of an acre,” Constant said. “That’s a rarity on the peninsula.”
He called the site one of the last remaining estate properties on Charleston’s lower peninsula.
The Emanual Antonio House predates 1808 and started as a two- to three-bedroom residence, according to a history of the site by the Historic Charleston Foundation. Additions came along in 1813 and after 1852.
The house passed through several owners over more than two centuries and became several apartments during the beginning of World War II. Since 1989, the house has undergone significant restoration.
The property last sold in 2020, just before the pandemic, to 48 Bull Street LLC, according to Charleston County land records.
The owners, who occupy half of the residence, plan to relocate elsewhere on the peninsula. The lease on the rental half expires in October, Constant said.
