Downtown Charleston is famous for its breathtaking historical mansions, especially those situated 'South of Broad'. Many of these mansions have been sold frequently over the years, swapping owners and undergoing extensive historic preservation renovations. However, one Downtown Charleston mansion has managed to remain off the market for nearly 150 years. A pre-Revolutionary War house, the Capers-Motte House located at 69 Church Street in Downtown Charleston, was built circa 1745 and has survived nearly 275 years of wars, hurricanes, earthquakes and fires from shell bombardment, and is now listed for sale at $9.99 million.
The Capers-Motte House has only been owned by three families throughout its entire existence, and is home to historically priceless features that are not just luxurious, according to Maison Real Estate listing agent, Leslie Turner. The home is 8,524 square feet, has 15 fireplaces and soaring 11' ceilings.
