Tour Across America

Welcome to Charleston South Carolina, one of the many port cities found through out the US. This historically acclaimed region of the US has a monumental estate to offer. The home that premiers today on Tour Across America is an antique at heart and resembles that of the homes seen throughout the historical region of Battery Park 'White Point Gardens' located in Charleston SC. This humble yet 'wise' estate carrys a ton of history on its foundation, literally - It was built in the year 1780. Close to the street line, we walk upon the grounds of the estate. We are welcomed by a palm tree and other well groomed plant and botanical life found wrapped around the estate. The formation is simple, in the town of Charleston with respects to this home we don't build out we build up. The grounds are narrow so building up is whats most necessary. The concept is simple. Now we enter the homes front room after passing the front lower deck to find our self in the front room. Although the house itself is an antique the furnishings found in and throughout may be colonial and modern. So we glance around the room to see just that. A fire place accommodates this room that is symmetrically designed to mock that of the fire place found in the kitchen. Exiting out of the front room we pass a half bathroom, then head into the kitchen which is fully furnished with all necessary necessities. The kitchen has a door leading to the rear grounds of the home. We see as we stand on the back deck a pool area, swing set, grill and patio.

Now we continue clock wise after reentering the home to the dinning room coming out of the kitchen, and back to the front room again. Heading up the stairs from the front room we then come into contact with bedrooms 1-2 and a bath. There is a deck found in the front and the rear of this floor the rear deck also leads you to the back yard after heading down the deck's stair case. Heading upstairs to the third floor we see bedrooms 3-4 and another dual deck front and back. We then head up to the attic of the home on the 4th floor to find that it hasn't been used as an attic at all but an upstairs den.

The home has been built to the plantation standards of the stately antebellum homes in which Charleston, South Carolina is well known for being the host of. Sometimes we don't know how these homes were built of such Colonial/Federal style architecture bearing a genius design with high society in mind but we do manage to flip the lots into something well functional that's well worth its time and ours, Historical with a Modern appeal so to speak.

Looks like that's the end of another episode of a Tour Across America. "Did you ever see a place that looked like it was built to enjoy? Well this whole state of Maine looks that way." Meet us next time when we continue this tour at the brink of I95 in New England - Portland, Maine.

It is a MUST to compliment you on this lot; I love all of your creations, but this lot itself is like a precious landmark; I've been inspired to start a whole new neighborhood filled with old money snobs vs. new money workers; I just love this home and everything about it. (I love the architecture in real life as well.)

I grew up in Charleston, collectively spending 20years of my life there, and recently moved out to the California desert with my husband, a Marine of 8years. Seeing this just makes me miss home...especially because I know of a house that looks quite similar to this.

You did a marvelous job with this one. It is so typical. Is it an actual historical home? I have floor plans of several homes in this area though don't think I have this one. It's really beautiful.
