This week’s Best New Listings includes a Mt. Pleasant rowhouse with an interesting origination story and a palatial penthouse in Old Town with some of the best views in the area. 


Bought With a Bag Full of Cash

This four-bedroom rowhouse in Mt. Pleasant has been owned by the same family for 70 years, and there is an interesting wrinkle in how the home was originally purchased. The current owner said his father and grandfather didn’t trust banks and showed up to closing with a shopping bag full of cash. The highlights of the first floor include a grand foyer, a living room with a fireplace, and a well appointed dining area and kitchen. The second floor is home to four bedrooms, two dens and two full bathrooms. Outside, there is a front yard, side yard, rear deck, and off-street parking for two cars.
