Introducing 19 Gadsden Street, located in the heart of the desirable Harleston Village neighborhood of downtown Charleston. Considered notable to the city, the Thomas Hamlin House (c. 1828) is an antebellum home built in the Greek Revival style.

Fully renovated, this home features modern appliances and comforts, while still retaining its classic southern style and charm. Decorated by interior designer Athalie Derse, and landscaped by Glen Gardner, this home warmly welcomes all those who enter through its expansive white porch.

A statement residence, this property is significant to the architectural history of downtown Charleston. This house was the first residence built on Gadsden above Wentworth Street, and is thought to have been originally intended as a summer getaway for the Hamlin family. In the mid-19th century, this house would have had unobstructed views of the Ashley river, which explains the Plantation-style architectural influences, including a grand front piazza and gable roof.

All 4 bedrooms of this home boast beautiful wood-burning fireplaces, and the fully renovated kitchen features stainless steel appliances and stunning white marble countertops. The home’s main entrance hall separates a formal living room and library on one side and a formal dining room and guest bed and bathroom on the other side. The second floor boasts the master bed and bathroom, which features built-ins, a double sink, and claw foot tub. A second guest bedroom completes the second floor. The raised brick basement has been elegantly converted into a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment.
