A Historic Charleston Charmer Home Is Reborn

Posted by Holli McRae on 6/1/15 9:15 AM

For as long as historic bus tours have been run along the cobblestone streets of Charleston, South Carolina, a point of interest has been the classical revival home originally owned by John N. Tidemann. A pre–Civil War beauty boasting wrought iron gates, mahogany shutters and a gracious front porch (or piazza), this “Charleston single” home was beginning to show its age when Nancy and Steve Feinberg purchased it in 2014. The Feinbergs, who own a manufacturing company in Hong Kong, had been living in Chicago nine months a year and wintering in Charleston for more than a decade. They were now ready to split their time evenly between the Windy City and the charming Southern town. To make the transition complete, the Feinbergs reached out to Palm Springs, California, interior designer Dann Foley to bring back their historic house’s original grandeur.

Two guest rooms on the third floor have peaked ceilings, creating a comfortable and cozy space for visiting friends and family.
