A home that recently sold in The Battery district in Charleston is the second-highest home sale recorded on the peninsula this year.

The Cassina Group’s Robertson Allen recently participated in the sale of 13 & 15 East Battery St. in downtown Charleston, according to a news release.

The 14,726-square-foot historic home closed for $12.45 million, with Allen representing the buyers, the release stated. The sale is the second highest home sale recorded on the peninsula so far this year, surpassed only by 13 & 15 Meeting St., which closed in April for $12.6 million with Robertson Allen representing both the buyers and sellers, the release stated.

“It is an honor to have played a pivotal role in the sale of this truly exceptional historic home,” said Allen, founding partner and broker-in-charge of The Cassina Group, in the release. “I am excited for my buyer clients and look forward to a new chapter for this architecturally significant piece of Charleston’s history.”

Allen’s clients plan to do a massive renovation on the expansive property to convert it back into a single-family residence, the release stated. One of the key features that will be added during the renovation is the portico, which was destroyed in the 1886 earthquake.

“My clients are extremely familiar with the rich historic fabric of downtown Charleston, and we are all looking forward to seeing the transformation of this iconic property,” said Allen.

The Cassina Group is well-acquainted with luxury sales, closing over a $100 million-plus sales so far this year. The real estate firm currently ranks as the No. 1 boutique firm in Charleston, with $480 million in closed and pending sales, the release stated.
