Property description

One of the last truly antebellum homes built in Charleston, 9 Limehouse Street is situated on the west side of peninsula Charleston just south of Tradd Street on the lands included on the Grand Model of Charles Town granted in 1681 to its original owner, Joseph Oldys. During the years of 1856 and 1857, William Pinckney Shingler, for whom the house is named, purchased five lots on which he built this existing home. It remains as the single largest residential lot in downtown Charleston. Shingler, a businessman and planter, was reputed to be one of the largest and most handsome men on Broad Street (Charleston's Wall Street) and the scale and decoration of this house reflect his personality.

As a guest of the Cottage at 9 Limehouse, you will enjoy a quiet 'off the beaten path' experience on the grounds of one of Charleston's most toured and photographed private homes. The Cottage boasts 900 square feet of secluded single story elegance in the shadows of Mr. Shingler's two magnificent homes. Built as a boathouse in the early 1900's on the foundations of the original carriage house, the Cottage has experienced a complete renovation with all the latest amenities. Sit outside on the patio in the beautifully landscaped garden or take a stroll down to the Ashley River and then wend your way to the many historical points of interest and varied restaurants just a few short blocks away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

Why the Owner Chose Charleston:
My parents purchased this house in 1956. I was raised here with my brother and sister and now my wife and I are raising our two children in the house. My parents had always opened the house for tours and for special occasions as requested by the city and various historical and preservation groups. My wife and I have renovated the Cottage in an effort to provide Charleston's visitors with a more personal and intimate view of the city.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As a guest at the Cottage, your accommodations are separate from the main house providing you with complete privacy in your comings and goings. Being situated just off the 'beaten path', both pedestrian and automobile traffic are at a minimum, yet, you are just blocks from the various historic points of interest and the numerous restaurants. As our guest, you will be given a tour of this magnificent property if you are interested in participating. Please let us know if you would like a tour!
