89 Ashley Avenue is an extraordinary downtown sanctuary which combines Federal Period architecture with modern day opulence. This grand brick Charleston single house was built in 1838 and is truly an impressive example of 19th century craftsmanship with Flemish bond brickwork, slate roof, beautiful period moldings, high ceilings, and hand carved fireplace surrounds. The graciously appointed rooms are quite large, have original heart pine floors, and are flooded with natural light. An impressive grand staircase with decorative millwork traverses the center of the home and rises to all four levels, with southerly exposed three-tiered piazzas. The piazzas are wide and most rooms have direct outdoor access. A private courtyard and pool are on the garden level, and the home seamlesslyflows for indoor and outdoor living and entertaining. The pool and garden area was completely renovated in 2022 with new pool lunar quartz tile and an ivory travertine deck. The garden was professionally landscaped and tall Charleston syle wooden fence was installed for privacy. This is a terrific family home, with five bedrooms, each with a newly renovated en-suite bathroom. Once you enter the property, you are welcomed into the garden level with pool. Inside the Charleston single, the living room is to the right and the kitchen is to the left once you enter the foyer. The fully renovated kitchen is a chef's dream, with high end appliances such as Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, Wolf stove and oven, and Haier refrigerator drawers. A quartzite waterfall edge center island is a focal point. Beautiful cabinetry creates a lot of storage. Floating shelves show off the tiled backsplash. French doors open onto the garden and pool. Beyond the kitchen is a large laundry room with additional sink, powder bathroom, and additional storage. On the second floor you find a second living room, currently outfitted with a billard table for game nights. The primary suite is very large, with a stunning bathroom with soaking tub, marble shower, and separate water closet. There is a walk in closet adjacent to the primary bathroom. Both the living room and primary suite open onto the gracious piazza, which overlooks the pool. On the third floor, there are very large bedrooms, each with custom closets built-in for storage. One bedroom has a very large bathroom with separate soaking tub and large shower. There is a small ""peloton room"" as well. The other bedroom also has a wall of closets and lovely marble full bathroom. The wide third floor piazza is a wonderful place to catch the afternoon breezes. On the fourth floor are two charming bedrooms, each with their own en suite full bathroom. Built in closets add to the storage options on the fourth floor. A delightful bonus is the .10 acre lot at the rear of the property, accessed through a shared driveway. The large rear lot provides parking for 6+ cars, a garden, and possible additional structure such as a garage. This additional lot is a rare opportunity on the peninsula. Located on a high and dry lot with no history of flooding, this property is a short walk to Colonial Lake, Moultrie Playground, and the tennis and pickleball courts.This house was completely renovated in 2018, with all plumbing, electrical, HVAC and security systems replaced. All bedrooms and living areas were updated, and all bathrooms and kitchen were fully renovated. Interior and exterior has been repainted. The pool and garden area was completely renovated in 2022 with new pool lunar quartz tile and an ivory travertine deck. The garden was professionally landscaped and new Charleston style tall wooden privacy fence was installed. There is additional storage behind the grilling area and pool equipment shed. This gorgeous property features beautiful historic details while being a wonderful family home, perfect for modern living.
