Description

The renovated c.1788 stuccoed brick masterpiece at 6 Tradd Street is one of Charleston's finest and oldest town homes. Situated within the original walled city of Charles Towne, the John Fabre, Jr. House is now part of the prestigious South of Broad neighborhood. The home is steps away from Rainbow Row, the Charleston Harbor and a number of Charleston's best restaurants.A superbly crafted iron gate forged by the renowned local blacksmith Phillip Simmons opens to a private brick walkway which leads to the home's front door and entry hall. The spacious living room, full of charm and a multitude of natural light, boasts 12' ceilings, transom windows, interior and exterior shutters, crown molding and gleaming heart pine hardwood floors. The dining room matches the living room in formal styand adds a fireplace with period mantlepiece. Both rooms feature exquisite Italian crystal chandeliers. The beautiful and functional kitchen boasts Carrara marble countertops and tiled backsplash. High end appliances include an 8-burner Thermador Professional gas stove, Sub Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and a farmhouse sink. The kitchen opens to a charming and artfully landscaped walled courtyard and garden, offering privacy and the perfect spot for al fresco dining and entertaining. A fountain adds a delightful water feature. On the second floor, the home's original drawing room has been transformed into an elegant primary suite. The spacious bedroom is bright and light and features cypress paneling, detailed trim, a fireplace with Georgian Chippendale over mantle and a ceiling medallion with chandelier. A wrought iron Juliet balcony overlooks Tradd Street (named after the first English child born in colonial Charles Towne.) Adjacent to the bedroom is a sitting room which would also function beautifully as a home office. The luxurious primary bathroom includes a marble vanity and backsplash over dual sinks, a walk-in closet, separate tub and steam shower and laundry room with washer and dryer. The third floor has two bedrooms, both with fireplaces, and a full bath. History buffs will appreciate the exposed interior earthquake bolts. The back bedroom offers a treetop view of St. Phillip's Church steeple and the iconic People's Building. The long history of 6 Tradd Street is summarized on a marker erected by the Preservation Society of Charleston which often features the home on its popular walking tours. 6 Tradd Street is also listed as notable in "This is Charleston, An Architectural Survey of a Unique American City." The ground floor was originally merchant space. After the Civil War it became a school for African American children. In the early 20th century, preservationist Susan Pringle Frost personally oversaw the rehabilitation of the home. It is she who moved the main entrance from the street to the side and added the balcony. Careful stewardship throughout the years has ensured that 6 Tradd remains a true showplace in one of the world's greatest cities. Be part of Charleston's past and future as the next owner of this historic and beautiful home.
