"It's been owned by two families, two prominent Charleston families," said Beth Bloch, buyer's agent.

The estate was built in 1912 and is 9,200 sq. ft.

"There's five fireplaces on the main level alone and four upstairs that adorn the bedrooms," Bloch said.

The three story neo-colonial Georgian home was designed by New York architects Ford, Butler, and Oliver.

"The house really defines a style of graciousness and an era where people entertained in their home," Bloch said.

The estate features brick and masonry build with stucco detailing, graveled circular drive, original wrought iron and exterior lighting fixtures, plaster ceilings and walls, and dove tailed hardwood floors.

"You will not find a lot of the workmanship and the trades and the materials used in new-built homes today," she said.

There's a continuous staircase that extends for three stories.

"When you walk in, you know it's something special," Bloch said.

The estate overlooks the Kanawha River and downtown Charleston, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
