About 18 Broad Street 801
Welcome to luxurious penthouse living at 18 Broad Street, one of Charleston's most spectacular properties in the heart of the city's historic district. This magnificent home encompasses the top two floors of the People's Building and showcases wonderful panoramic views of Charleston. The penthouse's impeccable renovation was the vision of New York designers, Monique Gibson and Andrew O'Neal, and executed by Meadors, Inc. It boasts more than 8,000 sq. ft. of living space with an additional 3,500 sq. ft. outdoor rooftop. It was truly built for entertaining, whether enjoying an intimate family gathering or hosting a gala for 200 guests. You will be captivated by the precision millwork, masonry and stonework throughout the home's exquisite rooms. The designers were intentional about the placement of each room and incorporated more than 50 existing arched windows into the design allowing rooms to have their own special view of the city.
The gourmet kitchen is its own work of art with dual marble islands and Miele appliances. A Viking gas range and double ovens will appeal to the chef in the family. Its spacious family room off the kitchen is the perfect place for taking in beautiful sunset vistas. The 1,500 sq. ft. primary suite is a true oasis and is located in a separate wing on the eastern side of the penthouse. It is complete with a spa-like marble bath with a steam shower, a large dressing room and closet, study with a fireplace, wet bar and even a dog washing room. The second floor features two additional guest suites, a full kitchen, den and a billiard room. Additional highlights include a private elevator entrance, two Sub-Zero 132 bottle wine chillers, multiple icemakers, three gated parking spaces and 24/7 surveillance.
The expansive rooftop terrace has been designed with meticulous attention to detail by local landscape architect, Sheila Wertimer. Outdoor seating, dining space and plantings create a breathtaking atmosphere and maximize the best views in the city. Historic church steeples, the meeting of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers and the beautiful Charleston Harbor can all be seen from your private outdoor space and will be sure to impress guests.
The iconic People's Building at 18 Broad Street is known as historic Charleston's first skyscraper at just eight stories high. The building was conceived by Mayor R. Goodwynn Rhett in 1911 and its effect on the city's original skyline was debated. President William Howard Taft, who viewed the city from the top of the building, said, "I don't believe that it did ruin the skyline, but if it did the view from up here makes it worth it." The People's Building is situated on the corner of Broad and State Streets and is just steps away from fine dining, art galleries, museums and parks. A premier address, historic details and luxury finishes make this penthouse an incomparable property.
