Property Description

This gorgeous 1854 masonry Charleston single house has been thoroughly updated with a modern flair, while preserving the beautiful historic details. From the Urban Electric custom fixtures and antique lighting throughout the home, to the amazing garden room with plaster walls and hand-hewn antique beams installed, quality craftmanship is evident throughout. With gracious double piazzas and a large iron gate protecting the off-street parking for 2+ cars, the unusually deep lot features a double tiered garden, originally designed by Loutrel Briggs. The brick pathways, high walls, and lush landscaping create an amazing oasis in the heart of downtown, perfect for year-round outdoor entertaining. The lot is generously sized and features room for a pool. On the interior, the rooms aregrand in scale, and feature original heart pine floors, detailed moldings, antique doors, but with thoughtful and classic updated kitchen and baths. The first floor features a formal living room, powder bath, and large dining room that opens onto the piazza and garden for effortless flow for entertaining and dining al fresco. There is a large butler's pantry with custom cabinetry and abundant storage, that leads into the gorgeous kitchen with tall windows, Lacanche stove from France, Subzero refrigerator/freezer, and Miele convection oven. The kitchen opens onto the spectacular garden room. Renovated with large windows, artisan-done plaster walls, soaring ceiling, and large antique wood beams installed, this room is a showstopper, yet very comfortable living space. The abundance of large windows bathe the room in natural light. The second floor features a bedroom with charming en suite bath, as well as the master suite. The master is stunning, and has a large walk-in closet, the laundry, and beautiful master bath with soaking tub, large shower, dual vanities, and tons of windows overlooking the garden. A wide piazza completes the second floor. The third floor features two bedrooms, with a shared hall bath with steam shower. Conveniently located on quiet Society Street, you can easily walk to local shops and King Street, award-winning restaurants, parks, and art galleries. Enjoy the best of historic Charleston with a turn-key home in high-and-dry Ansonborough.
