The house is one of the most charming homes in downtown Charleston. The property has been extensively renovated to provide a fantastic home stay for the sophisticated urbanite. The home is beautifully appointed with antique furniture and fittings, comfortable beds with luxury linens and fabrics, ample seating with leather couches and cozy chairs. There are three televisions, all with cable access, wi-fi, and a music system. The bathrooms have been totally renovated to provide state-of-the-art fixtures, tastefully blended to fit in with the house. The large kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs and decorated to feel like you are sitting in the south of France.
Double courtyards offer private outdoor space and dining both containing fountains, plants, and flowers. There are beautiful wrought iron gates that lock for security and privacy, an outdoor lighting system for an easy entry after an evening out, and a home security system. There is parking inside the gate or directly outside the gate on the street for your convenience should you need your car. Take a look at this extraordinary property and immerse yourself in everything that historic and modern Charleston has to offer. And at the end of a full day of sightseeing, you are only a quick walk or bicycle-cab away from the house.
Walk everywhere you want to be in downtown Charleston in minutes. The house is literally only steps away from numerous sights: Gibbes Museum of Art, the newly renovated Historic Charleston City Market, Customs House Museum, Slave Museum, Dock Street Theater, Footlights Players Theater, St. Phillip’s Church and Cemetery, the Circular Congregational Church (with weekly concerts), South Carolina’s Aquarium, numerous art galleries, restaurants, antique shops, and unique shopping.
Within a short walk of the house are the Cooper River with its popular quay-side park for walking and jogging; restaurants (Husk, Cru, Magnolias, Fig, Hanks, Ansons); beautiful historic homes and cobblestone streets to walk day or night that make you feel like you have stepped back in time (walking tours are the best way to experience downtown Charleston’s charm).
And don’t forget other destinations such as the ferry to Fort Sumter, tours to Magnolia Plantation and gardens, Folly Beach, and lots of golf opportunities. There is a reason Charleston has been named the number one city in the world by Conde Nast, and if you want to know what it feels like to actually live in this beautiful city, Trott’s Cottage is your opportunity to experience the magic.
Owner is a chef and caterer. The kitchen is designed and fully equipped to meet all your needs. We chose this location because it is in walking distance off great restaurants, museums, theaters, and shopping.
Vickie Truchan purchased this house in 2013
This is our dream house. We've always loved Charleston and visited nearly every year. We bought the house earlier this year and plan on retiring here eventually. When we're here at Trott's Cottage, we enjoy all that downtown Charleston has to offer. Now our guests can do the same.
We love historic homes and this house is one of the most interesting in Charleston. It is steeped in history.
We had a BLAST in this comfortable home. There is plenty of space to enjoy all that the home has to offer. We spent every evening in the courtyards enjoying wine and the sounds of the peaceful fountains. You are within walking distance of ANYTHING and although we had our vehicle it wasn't needed one bit! You are perfectly situated between King and East Bay Streets for some shopping or your choice of any delicious restaurant. Our favorite is High Cotton and you MUST try the coconut cake from Peninsula Grill. We will definitely be renting this home again in the near future.
This house has everything - historical charm and modern comfort. It is perfectly located in Charleston and is equipped with everything we needed. Easy walking distance to great restaurants, shopping, beautiful homes and gardens. The owner is very easy to deal with. It made for a wonderful stay in a wonderful city.
My husband and I rented this lovely historic home for a week in March. Our son in a freshman in the College of Charleston. We loved the home's design, location and many anemities. The owners were very nice, as well.
