Agent Remarks

This 1850 three story house has been restored to perfection using only the highest quality materials and workmanship. With its South of Broad location, you are just steps from White Point Gardens and the Battery, but enjoy unparalleled privacy with its keyless wrought iron entry and completely walled yard. While the house maintains its historic charm with beautiful millwork, fireplaces, pocket doors, oversized rooms and tall baseboards, it definitely conveys a modern feel with the travertine floors on the ground floor and the openness of its floor plan. Enter the 5848 square foot home to a bright open foyer that flows beautifully into the formal living room. Under the stairs is found a stunning powder room with hand painted walls in muted elegant colors. Both the formal living room and dining rooms have functioning fireplaces (there are a total of five in the home). Again, the detail is what is expected in a fine historic Charleston property. Adjacent to the dining room and kitchen is a large butler's pantry with a sink, ice maker, wine refrigerator, plenty of countertop space and a multitude of drawers and cabinets. It's the perfect entertaining home! The 500 sq feet chef's kitchen is a dream with an abundance of room for family and friends, space for a table for six and a sizable sitting area. The kitchen is equipped with a 48" Wolf gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, wine cooler and a huge center island. This section of the home also includes the spacious laundry suite. Here you find the washer and dryer, pantry, elevator entrance and a bath. It's so convenient for coming in from gardening or swimming! Highlighting the home's second floor are Jacobean-stained reclaimed antique heart pine floors. Found on this level is the magnificent family room, a bright sunny room with a beautiful bay window complete with window seat. Features of this room include another fireplace (wood burning), built in cabinetry and grand wainscoting. Glass pocket doors lead from this room to the painted mahogany- glassed piazza with a full wet bar. It's a glorious sunny spot, yet, screened by trees, so very private. Two large guest bedrooms are also located on this floor, both with special features. One has an original marble and brick fireplace, and the other has a private deck overlooking the walled garden. These rooms share a sumptuous bathroom. Located on the third floor of the home are the master living quarters. These consist of a master bedroom with yet another fireplace (gas), a luxurious master bath and a fabulous walk in closet/dressing room with built-ins. From here you have access to the massive private deck with gorgeous views. There is also a very large home office with a wet bar, built-ins, and a lovely bathroom on this floor. This could be a second master suite if desired. The private rear grounds are heavenly! Nestled behind period brick and stucco walls, is an idyllic retreat. A gorgeous saltwater swimming pool with a cascade and stools is a divine spot to relax or to entertain. The gardens and pool were designed by Glen Gardner and the pool was constructed by Blue Haven. Additionally, there is a terrace with a fire pit and a Lynx professional grill. The home is equipped with an elevator, security system, a 60 amp generator, and irrigation and mosquito systems. There is covered parking for two cars and additional parking for another vehicle within the home's gate. This house truly has everything one could want with a coveted Charleston location.
