Agent Remarks

The James Macbeth House, c. 1846, is one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in Charleston. Steeped in history, including a visit from John F. Kennedy, this grand 3 1/2 story, brick and stucco Charleston Single with gracious double piazza's is one of the grandest homes South of Broad. As you enter the front door you are immediately drawn up the gorgeous mahogany staircase to the main level. Flooded with light the main living room and dining room have incredible 14' ceilings, original heart of pine floors, exquisite plaster moldings and medallions and Italian marble fireplaces, all preserved and maintained in their original state. All five of the floor to ceiling windows/doors in this area open to the stunning, wide grand piazza with water views and harbor breezes, making i perfectly suited for entertaining an intimate group or for a grand event. This floor is completed with a new eat-in kitchen, and a wet bar. The kitchen has a French door that opens to the piazza and an iron staircase to the side courtyard. The top 2 floors have 4 ensuite bedrooms, 3 additional fireplaces, along with a large temperature-controlled storage room. The ground level, designed for casual entertaining and family living, boasts a lovely paneled cypress family room, additional dining space, the 5th ensuite bedroom, 500+wine storage, laundry and storage. With its own street access, this ground floor could easily be converted to its own apartment. Perfect for a nanny, mother in law suite or rental income. Through the French doors on this level, you enter a new stone courtyard complete with an outdoor kitchen, lighting, and grilling station. There is ample space for a pool and the current owners have had plans drawn up for one designed by Sheila Wertimer. The outdoor space is completed with a wonderful open covered piazza completing the landscaped, fenced, and walled yard for private entertaining in the heart of Downtown.
