A 5,095-square-foot historic home-turned-office in downtown Columbia has been sold.

Colliers South Carolina’s Mary Winter Teaster represented Wes Graves in the sale to Todd Avant/Avant Holdings LLC.

This building is located at 1518 Richland St.  in the Historic House and Garden District. Built in 1841 and purchased by General Maxcy Gregg in 1854, this historical landmark was a residence for nearly a century, was converted to office use in 1974 and housed Harris & Graves Law Firm for many years.

The buyer, Todd Avant, has extensive plans to restore the Maxcy Gregg property to its original classic historic features. The building will become home to another law firm and will also have space for lease.

Teaster of Colliers  South Carolina has assisted in multiple property transactions located in the historic areas of downtown Columbia.

“I love seeing this type of renovation transform older properties to their original state,” Teaster said in the release. “It takes a special buyer to recognize the history of a building and be willing to invest a significant amount of time and investment to return it to glory!”

Teaster is a Senior Brokerage Associate with Colliers South Carolina with a focus on local small businesses, women-owned businesses and nonprofit organizations.
