Charleston’s Most Expensive Home Sales – 2008 – 1st Quarter

Apr 14, 2008 • By Places Real Estate • 0 Comments

After quite a lag on posting Charleston’s highest priced home sales, we’re back for a recap of the 1st quarter of 2008 on the coast of South Carolina – with homes in downtown Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Isle of Palms, Kiawah, and Seabrook making the cut. Since the numbers are mustered from various Charleston real estate sources, SquareFeet does not guarantee accuracy, only something worth your gander – over $1.9 million, that is.

  1. 94 Rutledge Avenue – The Jenkins Mikell House – One of the most prominent homes on the Charleston peninsula recently sold along with its over the top salute to Corinthian columns – but its still impressive with more than 9,400 sf. Locale: Downtown Peninsula. The Toll: $4.8M.
  2. 23 Meeting Street – One of the Three Sisters in downtown Charleston, this pre-Revolutionary War home – yes, that’s right 1770. – also includes a Secret Garden. Locale: Downtown Peninsula. The Toll: $2.97M.
  3. 37 Hasell Street – This Greek Revival residence dating back to 1881 is located in Ansonborough – a now chic area close to all the action in downtown Charleston. Locale: Downtown Peninsula. The Toll: $2.7 M.
  4. 32 North Prioleau Street – Coming in fourth and breaking the historic trends of multimillion dollar residences above, this 2002 condominium residence at One Vendue along Waterfront Park offers relatively new construction and an outstanding location – along with a lot of tourists. Locale: Downtown Peninsula. The Toll: $2.4M.
  5. 161 Cooper River Drive #161 – Mount Pleasant’s newest luxury condominium project, The Tides, has finally been closing their units and this penthouse unit garners #5 on this quarter’s top 10 list. Locale: Mount Pleasant. Toll: $2.2M.
  6. 2290 Marsh Hen Drive – Seabrook breaks into the top 10 with this marshfront 4,200 sf home with views of Cap’n Sam’s Creek.. Locale: Seabrook. The Toll: $2.08M.

  8. 121 Charleston Boulevard – this 3,800 sf beach area home with pool and outside entertaining area recently sold amid a glut of second homes on the Isle of Palms.
