This incredible South-of-Broad home on a
rare double lot was built c.1873 by a member of the Prioleau family. In c.1880
the home was acquired by C. Richardson Miles, a South Carolina attorney general
and later president of the College of Charleston Trustees. This important
property is now being offered for sale for the first time in over 70 years. The
Prioleau-Miles house is a grand multi-generational home with three first-floor
parlor rooms for large family gatherings and entertaining supported by a
first-floor butler's pantry/kitchen. The first floor also features a
mother-in-law suite with en suite bathroom. The second floor includes a large
den, updated chef's kitchen, dining space, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The third floor is a perfect refuge
for guests or family with two dormer bedrooms and one bathroom. 

 

Both the first and second floors open to exceptionally large, covered
piazza's ideal for dining alfresco or outdoor social
gatherings. 

The home is one block away from The
Charleston Conservancy's beautiful Colonial Lake and Moultrie Playground - both
having recently completed major renovations.



A guest cottage, c.1946, sits at the rear of the property currently configured
in two 800± sq ft income-producing rental units. The downstairs unit consists of one bedroom, a den, kitchen,
and bathroom, while the upstairs unit provides two bedrooms with a kitchenette
and a bathroom.



173 Broad offers all
these features along with the benefit of 10+ parking spaces on the property;
and there is still room to add a pool. An existing 1 ½ car garage can double as
a workshop and storage shed, or with city permits, can be replaced with a 2 ½
car garage plus a living unit or studio above.



The Prioleau-Miles house marries two specific architectural styles. First, the
Queen Anne style which incorporates multiple gable roof lines, double-tiered
wraparound piazzas, charming spindle work detail, as well as bay windows.
Second, the Colonial Revival style was popular from c.1880 to c.1930 after our
country's Centennial Exhibition of 1876. This style "revived"
Americans' desire to utilize a more traditional architecture from their
colonial past. Colonial Revival is drawn from an amalgamation of Georgian,
Federal Architecture, and Dutch Colonial Style.



The 6,434± sq.ft. main building sits on 0.47± acres in Charleston's
most esteemed South of Broad neighborhood. The home boasts a grand mahogany
staircase in the main foyer that is also incorporated into the wall trim
detail. The first floor is ideal for entertaining which consists of
double formal living rooms, each with their own fireplace. The heart pine
floors extend through the magnificent formal dining room with a fireplace
complete with a separate butler's pantry or catering kitchen. The next room is
perfect for a study or future custom bar. Additionally, the first floor is
comprised of one powder room in the front half of the home and a second in
the back half.



In the rear of the main house, you will find the first-floor master addition
with an en suite marble bathroom and walk-in closet. This light-filled,
first-floor master has brand new wall-to-wall carpet (balance of home is heart
pine) and includes a private entrance to the gardens outside. This addition is
a one-story stucco building which was completed in c.1994 and connected to the
main house.



The main living level (second floor) includes three bedrooms, two
bathrooms, and a laundry room. The stunning gourmet
kitchen bestows quartz countertops and a gas Thermador®
range, matching hood system, and cabinet depth built-in refrigerator. There is
also a wet bar and entertainment area as well as a breakfast nook. The family
room contains custom bookshelves on the north wall, a gas fireplace,
and a gorgeous view of the gardens along with easy
access to the second-floor piazza.



The third floor yields two bedrooms and a full bathroom. One bedroom
has a walk-in closet while the other has attic storage.
