Charming 1840 Charleston single house with wide columned double piazzas. Striking architectural brick fireplaces are the focal point of each of the main rooms. Downstairs, 2 rooms flank the central hall. They could be configured as a living room and formal dining room or a living room and extra bedroom. There is also a full bath, currently separated into 2 rooms, that can be reconfigured. To the back of the house is a nice-sized kitchen equipped for a rental or ready to be remodeled. A bright sun room makes a perfect eat-in area. Both areas have new wood flooring to coordinate with the original heart pine floors in the other rooms. Upstairs are 2 more bedrooms, each with its own eye-catching brick fireplace. The central room also has an impressive exposed wood vaulted ceiling. Behind it is another sunroom with new carpet that could be a sitting room or an extra bedroom. The rooms are connected by a bathroom with dual sinks, a garden tub/shower combo and a stackable laundry closet. The interiors and exterior were recently painted. This home is situated on the street and is the entrance point to the Cottages at Bogard, a horizontal regime consisting of 7 homes built in in 2005. One off-street parking space is included, while street parking in this part of town is not difficult. Cannonborough-Elliottborough is an up-and-coming transitional neighborhood populated by students, young professionals, and long-time local families. It offers some of the more affordable housing (both fixer-uppers and renovations) on the peninsula, as well as a number of hip restaurants, corner stores, and cocktail joints all within walking distance. The MUSC campus, College of Charleston, Charleston School of Law, Upper King Street and the Crosstown--with access to all areas of Charleston--are nearby.
