Agent Remarks

This 1885 Charleston single house blends modern living with beautiful historic detail. Recognized with the Carolopolis Award by the Preservation Society of Charleston in 2006, for exceptional efforts to save historic buildings, the restoration combined modern living comforts with historic detail. The elegant living room has ample space for a baby grand piano and yet offers the desired seating space. The dining room has French doors opening to the piazza, and built-in arched display cabinets. Through the hallway to the kitchen is a powder room and laundry room complete with sink. The stunning, state-of-the-art light-filled kitchen opens to a breakfast alcove surrounded on three sides by windows, with French doors opening to the piazza and to the Shelia Wertimer garden for entertaining. The garden is classic Wertimer design with "rooms" and a magical fountain. The outdoor spaces are covered by an automatic mosquito spray system for added comfort. Up the backstairs are the three bedrooms and three full en-suite baths and multiple openings to the second story piazza. Two parking spaces and space for a golf cart along the landscaped driveway add to the many advantages of this home. Limehouse Street is quiet and an easy walk to the Battery to the South, passing along the way the neighboring mansion homes at 9 and 10 Limehouse Street, both significant to Charleston's history. A stroll to the North will put the fine restaurants of Charleston easily within reach without driving. With such exquisite detail and finishes and modern conveniences, this property is an extraordinary place to call home South of Broad, Charleston.
