The Italianate-style home overlooks Charleston Harbor.


If you are a fan of Bravo TV’s “Southern Charm”–I confess, it is one of my guilty pleasures—then you may remember this house from last season.

Built in 1848 by Huguenot planterJohn Ravenel, the pink, three-story, Italianate-style Palmer Home is at 5 East Battery, in the prestigious South of Broad section of Charleston, South Carolina. Last season on “Southern Charm,” it was the location for a fashion show staged by cast member and menswear designer Cooper Ray. (See a clip from Episode Five here.)



The stately, 11,629-square-foot main house overlooks Charleston Harbor, and has seven bedrooms, seven baths, and two half baths. A carriage house offers another three bedrooms, and there is also a garden and pool on the .41-acre property.



Furnished with antiques dating back 200 years, the private home is currently occupied by third-generation owner Frances Palmer. She has operated The Palmer Home as a bed and breakfast since 1977. The asking price for the home, as of August 2015, is $7 million.
