This privately-owned bed and breakfast is nestled within the urban compound of Charleston's historic 1825 Edmondston-Alston House, one of the first dwellings constructed along the High Battery facing Charleston Harbor. Here, in what were once the stables, carriage house and slave quarters, is a sequestered guest lodging newly refurbished for discerning visitors to Charleston. Every amenity has been attended to including a kitchen pre-stocked with fresh pastries, fruit and juices, plus a gourmet breakfast. This is an ideal accommodation for couples celebrating a special occasion or for traveling families. The city's legendary waterfront promenade, known by Charlestonians as High Battery is only a few steps away. A stroll along the seawall to beautiful White Point Gardens offers dramatic views of Ft. Sumter and the glistening waters of historic Charleston Harbor. Within easy walking distance are award-winning restaurants, fascinating and important places of interest and the breathtaking church steeples that add to the Holy City's ambience.21 East Battery was built in 1825 during the tenure of the property's first owner, Charles Edmondston. Later, in 1838, second-owner Charles Alston extensively remodeled the house adding significant Greek Revival details.
