Charleston Home Sells for $7.51 million


37 meetingAn 8,384-square-foot home in downtown Charleston sold for $7.51 million earlier this month, according to a news release from William Means Real Estate, which represented the seller.

The James Simmons House, located at 37 Meeting St., was built in the 1760s by Charleston attorney James Simmons and still retains its original Georgian-era floor plan with a central hall and four flanking formal rooms, the news release said.

William and Nancy Longfield sold the house to Robert and Melissa Smith on June 14, the title transfer document says.

It was the second-most-expensive property sale on the peninsula, behind only the $7.7 million sale of the Colonel John Ashe House, located at 32 South Battery, in July 2015.

“This house is a historic gem in the heart of downtown Charleston,” Lyles Geer, a broker with William Means Real Estate, said in the release. “The rare architecture, beautiful gardens and storied past make this house a classic Charleston home.”
