Property Description

Described in Charleston Magazine as a home with ''classic lines and a sense of formality from the street, but walk to the back and you see its hip, modern side'', the newly renovated Robert M. Venning house is a jewel in Ansonborough. Perfect for modern living, this sophisticated brick and stucco home has large, elegant rooms with gorgeous preserved historic details including original heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, deep crown moldings, 9-over-9 large windows, and eight fireplaces*. The original 1840's kitchen house is attached to the main house and features a new gourmet kitchen with 10' granite island and 4 sets of sapele doors opening onto the brick patio, covered loggia, and private garden. The kitchen has new custom cabinetry, new flooring, wet bar, and Miele and Wolf appliances. The fabulous great room/family room off the kitchen has soaring 26' wood-beamed ceiling, fireplace, full bath, and new custom artisan Robert Thomas Iron Design award-winning spiral staircase. This home flows very well for entertaining, and is also a terrific family home. Light and bright, natural light pours in the large windows in every room. The intimate wine cellar, down the stairs from the kitchen, has custom built-in storage for hundreds of wine bottles, a wet bar, plus an office and den/storage on this level. A stunning master suite on the second floor features large closets and brand-new spa-like luxurious master bath with gas fireplace, gorgeous Calcutta gold shower, and full sized laundry thoughtfully tucked inside closet doors. There is a wonderful second floor den/office/4th bedroom. There are two spacious bedrooms on the third floor with full-height ceilings (no dormers!), rooftop views & shared full bath. Charming and gracious wide piazzas on first and second floors are perfect for catching breezes, enjoying an afternoon drink, and overlooking the lovely garden. Property has a private walled garden with new lush landscaping, brickwork, lighting and irrigation and large covered patio for outdoor living. 2 gated off-street parking spaces. Society is a quiet one-way street, with plenty of on-street parking for guests. Recent 2-year renovations with dream team of Eddie Fava Architect, Artis Construction, Robin Rogers Interiors, and DeCiantis Landscape Design created a turn-key dream home in desirable high and dry Ansonborough. No easements taken.
