Historic District Home Sales

Recommended Posts

Second highest price for Historic Charleston home paid at $7.51 mm  

The James Simmons House at 37 Meeting St., a stately gray mansion guarded by ornate wrought iron gates, sold for $7.51 million, according to Lyles Geer of William Means Real Estate, which handled the sale for the sellers. 

The James Simmons House, an 8,384-square-foot residence, was previously owned by William and Nancy Longfield, who bought the house for nearly $7.4 million in 2009, the highest ever in downtown Charleston at that time. 

The latest sale is not the highest ever for the peninsula, though it comes close. The Colonel John Ashe House at 32 South Battery changed hands for $7.72 million last year. 

The history of the 37 Meeting St. property dates back to the 1760s when Charleston attorney James Simmons had the structure built. In the 1800s, it served as the residence of noted Charleston merchant Otis Mills, builder of the nearby Mills House.
