Agent Remarks

This gorgeous 1854 masonry Charleston single house has been thoroughly updated with a modern flair, while preserving the beautiful historic details. From the Urban Electric custom fixtures and antique lighting throughout the home, to the amazing garden room with plaster walls and hand-hewn antique beams installed, quality craftmanship is evident throughout. With gracious double piazzas and a large iron gate protecting the off-street parking for 2+ cars, the unusually deep lot features a double tiered garden, originally designed by Loutrel Briggs. The brick pathways, high walls, and lush landscaping create an amazing oasis in the heart of downtown, perfect for year-round outdoor entertaining. The lot is generously sized and features room for a pool. On the interior, the rooms are grand in scale, and feature original heart pine floors, detailed moldings, antique doors, but with thoughtful and classic updated kitchen and baths. The first floor features a formal living room, powder bath, and large dining room that opens onto the piazza and garden for effortless flow for entertaining and dining al fresco. There is a large butler's pantry with custom cabinetry and abundant storage, that leads into the gorgeous kitchen with tall windows, Lacanche stove from France, Subzero refrigerator/freezer, and Miele convection oven. The kitchen opens onto the spectacular garden room. Renovated with large windows, artisan-done plaster walls, soaring ceiling, and large antique wood beams installed, this room is a showstopper, yet very comfortable living space. The abundance of large windows bathe the room in natural light. The second floor features a bedroom with charming en suite bath, as well as the master suite. The master is stunning, and has a large walk-in closet, the laundry, and beautiful master bath with soaking tub, large shower, dual vanities, and tons of windows overlooking the garden. A wide piazza completes the second floor. The third floor features two bedrooms, with a shared hall bath with steam shower. Conveniently located on quiet Society Street, you can easily walk to local shops and King Street, award-winning restaurants, parks, and art galleries. Enjoy the best of historic Charleston with a turn-key home in high-and-dry Ansonborough.
