122 Tradd Street Charleston, SC 29401- Life in Charleston at its best!

Life in Charleston at its best!

President Lyndon B. Johnson as well as President & Mrs.Clinton have been guests here. All the luxuries of the 21st Century have been thoughtfully incorporated into this house without compromising its integrity. Home to distinguished Charlestonians since 1835, the William C. Bee House was built in the grand style as a classic Charleston Single House, an architectural style unique to Charleston.
The proportions of the rooms are large and pleasing, and the rooms are graciously appointed with handsome woodwork and molding. Light pours in through particularly large six over six paned windows throughout the house. The piazza, possibly the most stunning piazza in Charleston, is private enough that is often used as a “room.”
Loutrel Briggs, a noted early 20th C. landscaper, laid out the grounds. The formal garden is beautifully manicured. Hidden behind the hedge is another garden, intimate and peaceful. Entering the piazza from the street one proceeds to the high-style double front door. This opens into the foyer with its magnificent four story staircase. To the right is the formal living room and to the left is the formal dining room. On the 2nd floor the library, the hall, and the master bedroom all open out onto the upstairs piazza which is equally private and inviting.
The 3rd floor hall is flanked by two en suite bedrooms and baths, and the 4th floor is the easily accessed full attic. Notable features include a 2 bedroom carriage house which can be used as a staff residence, a Bed & Breakfast, a rental property, or as it is now – a part of the main house. There are large stables now used for storage, a parking court, a large heated & cooled basement, and the attic. Governor, then Senator, Burnet R. Maybank lived here. Again, living here is life in Charleston at its best!
