Sale Notes:
20 South Battery is the premier Charleston residence, prominent for its location and presence as a historic and social feature of the community. Local businessman Samuel Stevens built this antebellum home in 1843, selling it after the war to Colonel William Lathers, a native of Georgetown, South Carolina and an officer in the Union Army. In 1874 the home sold to South Carolina's Calhoun family patriarch, Andrew Calhoun Simonds, a well-known Charleston banker and entrepreneur. Today the residence is owned by Simonds' great-great-grandson. Classic elements abound within its expansive halls and rooms, including a spiral staircase ascending four floors, eight elegant fireplaces, and original wood parquet flooring. The main structure is a private residence that faces stunning water views of Charleston Harbor with legendary Fort Sumter in the distance. As Susan Sully described in Charleston Style, "the interior seems to dwell in an international time warp that could exist in Venice, Paris or even Pompeii" (Sully 1999, 74). To enter the tall front doors of this home is to enter an idyllic wonderland of geometric mosaic encaustic tiles with elegant cornices and pilasters in the expression of the Greek Rival and Second Empire styles. The ballroom, a focal point of the main entrance, provided the meeting room and founding of the oldest community-based historic preservation organization in America, the Charleston Preservation Society. Highlighted as a primary Charleston landmark in the ABC miniseries North and South (1985) starring Patrick Swayze and James Read, the main residence is gracefully clad in mellowed pink stucco with surrounding white piazzas and a whimsically unique mansard roof. If square footage is important - MEASURE!!
