Property Description

Picture perfect, move-in ready carriage house in a great South of Broad location in historic downtown Charleston. Gibbes Street is a quiet, residential area with slate-lined sidewalks and towering trees, just blocks from the waterfront and Battery. Don't let the simplicity of this structure from the street-side mislead you, just around the corner, through a lovely garden, is the entrance to the home. 1 1/2 Gibbes Street has transformed an 1814 dependency building into a charming city home with all the modern conveniences.Inside, traditional hardwood floors and high ceilings with crown molding join contemporary neutral paint colors, plantation shutters, and recessed lighting in each room. The gourmet Tuscan kitchen has light cabinetry, granite countertops, and a contrasting island.Every corner has been optimized with plenty of counter and storage space, including a glass display cabinet. A deep farmhouse sink, Sub Zero French door refrigerator, and Viking gas stove are as attractive as they are functional. An original fireplace with gas logs adds a historic focal point to the room, as does the chandelier, which was converted from a gasolier. The remainder of the first floor is comprised of a great room with defined living and dining areas. The living room has a window seat and built-in bookshelves, plus French doors to access the covered front porch. The dining room has another converted gasolier lighting fixture. A roomy half bath completes this level. Up an open staircase are 2 bedrooms suites, each with a full bath. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling. It is flooded with light from a wall of windows topped with a Palladian window and French doors that open to a balcony overlooking treetops and the neighboring gardens. The master bath has impressive tile work and a dual shower heads in the walk-in shower. The guest suite has a similarly-appointed bath and French door access to porch as well. It also accommodates a laundry closet with Bosch compact stackable washer and dryer. Outside, the home is surrounded by a lush garden enclosed within a brick privacy fence. Hardscaping includes brick-lined tabby walkways and a driveway for off-street parking. The space is divided into several outdoor rooms, including a tiled patio, and a large pergola backed by an iron gate off of the dining room. These garden rooms wrap around the house away from the street, providing privacy for the outdoor living spaces. Located at the corner of Gibbes and Legare Streets, 1 1/2 Gibbes Street takes its place amongst grand 19th-century homes in the heart of downtown Charleston's famed South of Broad neighborhood. The ideal city residence or in-town getaway, is away from the regular tourist traffic, yet within walking distance of White Point Garden, the Ashley River, historic properties, restaurants, and shops.
