Imagine buying a dream home, in the heart of one of the country’s most adored cities, then being able to design the interior exactly to your liking.
The home at 62 Tradd Street offers this very unique opportunity! The property is situated on one of Downtown’s most picturesque streets, running across the peninsula, from the Charleston Harbor to the Ashley River. According to the Charleston County Public Library, “tradition says Tradd Street was named for Robert Tradd who supposedly was the first child of European descent born in the Province. lt is more likely that it was named for his father, Richard Tradd, who by 1679 was living at the northeast corner of present-day Tradd and East Bay. Early deeds refer to ‘the little street that runs from Cooper River past Mr. Tradd’s house.'”
A stroll down Tradd Street reveals beautiful historic homes steeped in history and framed by intricate ironwork and lush manicured gardens. The home and property at 62 Tradd present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for buyers to create a dream home within the walls of a historic gem. The structure, c. 1852 was a bakery with a dwelling upstairs. The outbuildings included a bake house and quarters for workers of the bakery. Descendants of the baker, John T. Marshall resided in the home until 1978 when they sold to the current owner. A shell now ready for interior renovation, 62 Tradd has plans drawn and available from Charlottesville, VA architecture firm W.G. Clark Associates. Noteworthy features of the property include repointed bricks, a basement, screened porch, slate driveway, a grand entryway, five fireplaces, huge windows and handsome French doors allowing for a sun-drenched interior.
