This enchanting jewel box of a house is tucked in a tranquil garden between historic mansions in desirable Ansonborough. One of two coveted carriage houses behind the James Jervey House at 55 Laurens Street, this turn-key property checks all the boxes: historic, masonry, high ground (no history of flooding), graceful garden and gated off-street parking. The first floor living room and dining rooms feature gas fireplaces and views to the garden, a cozy kitchen with new marble countertops, and a powder bath. The second floor has two bedrooms with fireplaces and garden views, and a full bathroom with updated floral-patterned bath tiling, shiplap, and brass lighting. The third floor has been recently remodeled, and showcases newly exposed beams, now accented with shiplap, giving the thirdfloor an artist-studio vibe. The open views from the third floor of the garden and surrounding trees and rooftops adds a calm serenity to the house. The romantic brick courtyard is a perfect place to entertain and dine al fresco, surrounded by blooming jasmine and the warm glow of gas lanterns. Recent updates include Waterworks faucet, Circa Lighting chandeliers and sconces, and Ralph Lauren ceiling mount fixtures. This delightful home is exclusive and quiet, yet a short walk to all that Charleston has to offer, including the Gaillard, Marion Square, and King Street shopping and restaurants. This is a golden opportunity for buyers looking for a unique downtown property.
