The Theodore Gaillard (Gaillard-Bennett) House, circa 1800, is one of the finest examples of the Federal Period in Charleston and the country, where preservation, restoration, and stewardship endure. This elaborate double house and all auxiliary buildings have been painstakingly renovated to near perfection including restoration of the embellished plaster cornices, ceiling decorations, and composition fireplace mantels. The original plat of 1.25 acres has been re-assembled to recreate the original urban plantation which includes the main residence of 9,345 heated square feet, the kitchen house (four bedrooms and two and a half baths) and carriage house (two bedrooms and two full baths) which represents an additional 3,922 heated square feet. There is also a Tack House which hides every 21st century mechanical element of the home, to preserve the early 19th century feel. Also included on the grounds is a large garage, pool and pool house with outdoor kitchen and bath. The grounds have been re-landscaped into a park-like setting with croquet lawn and surrounded by a masonry wall, which allows for complete privacy. One can stand on the 2 side porches or ornate front porch and admire the beauty of one of the largest estates in Downtown Charleston. The city's top restoration experts, architect Glenn Keyes, contractor Richard Marks, and landscape architect Sheila Wertimer, collaborated with the owner to carefully revitalize the estate. This historic gem is not only rich in architecture but also history according to historian John Poston in his book, The Buildings of Charleston, where he described,"General Robert E. Lee addressed well wishers from the second level of the portico" while visiting the owner Washington Jefferson Bennett after the war. The property is classified as "Buildings Valuable to the City" in This is Charleston, an Architectural Survey of a Unique American City, by Carolina Art association, Charleston SC.  MoreLess

In 29401, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 14.7% lower than in Charleston, and 11.4% less than the national average. This lower local number could help 29401 home values rise more quickly than other regions in Charleston.
