Agent Remarks

History meets modern living standards in this lovely 1792 brick home in Charleston. Original floors, woodwork and interior appointments were carefully preserved with flexible floor plan that offers many possibilities. Downstairs living room and dining room have large fireplaces restored to their original size and are large and spacious. All chimneys are relined and repointed. The kitchen, while reflecting the original porch on which it sits is fully modern with eat-in kitchen and top of the line appliances including wine refrigerator and drawer microwave. A garden level bedroom and full bath makes a lovely, peaceful room in the back of the house with only three steps (could convert to ramp) and ready access to the house, or could be converted to a library/study. The second floor has a large sunny front bedroom with working fireplace, full bathroom, sitting room with working fireplace and a large, light-filled master suite in the back of the house away from street noise. Cathedral ceilings, two porches, marble appointed master bathroom and lots of closet space complete the master suite. One of the closets is stubbed for an upstairs laundry facility if desired. The third floor, originally the attic, is finished with an additional bedroom, full bath and office all overlooking the rooftops of historic Charleston. The renovation of this house took over two years and encompassed 100 percent repointing of all bricks from inside and outside the house, all new wiring, plumbing, heating and air, insulation, and a new slate roof on the old house and copper roof on the addition for long life. The comprehensive renovation should provide years of low maintenance, high quality living vs a more cosmetic update. The garden and drive were designed by Robert Chesnut and preserved several older trees while adding structure, utility and lighting to make this very private space a casual retreat for a glass of wine at the end of the day, or outside dinner. Tea olive trees, ginger lilies and gardenia scent the garden throughout the year. Built on King Street, this house has never had water intrusion and sits up off ground level for added security. The charm of living in a home with irreplaceable materials like hand made bricks, heart pine floors and a window with a name etched in 75+ years ago (with a diamond ring?) without compromising comfort makes this house a very special place to come home to.
