Historic charm radiates throughout this tastefully updated circa 1785 home in downtown Charleston's coveted South of Broad neighborhood. The first floor renders a proper sense of entry behind two decorator-inspired French doors, which reveal a stunning wooden staircase and a convenient powder room. Both living and dining rooms boast 11 to 12-foot ceilings with distinctive dental molding and oversized windows. The light-filled living room has a working gas fireplace surrounded by custom built-in shelving. The dining room features a wall of French doors, one of which conceals an elevator that serves all three floors. The kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Imperial six-burner gas stove, and Kitchenaid premier quiet dishwasher.
It offers an open concept room with an island/breakfast bar and granite countertops flowing into a roomy seating area that leads to an intimate courtyard. Cabinet and storage space abound with 13 to 15-foot high ceilings and a gorgeous copper lantern adorning the dinette area.
Take the stairs or the elevator to the second-floor owner's retreat, where you will find a sizeable primary bedroom with a working fireplace, a full bathroom, and a comfortable study that leads to the rooftop deck with a glorious view of the St. Michael's Church spire. Both rooms offer abundant closet space. The large deck provides significant space for entertaining, surrounded by boxwood planters and covered with a retractable commercial-size awning. There are two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom on the third floor. Beautiful Heart Pine floors are in every room of the house except for the kitchen, which features charming terra-cotta tiles.
Two coveted parking spaces, stucco exterior, and a dry walled and ducted attic complete the features of this extraordinary home. Be sure to ask for the full list of updates completed by the current owner.
