Three-floor historic building in prime location in the heart of downtown Charleston's commercial, tourist, and residential area. Located on State Street at the corner of Lodge Alley, the building is currently configured for office, conference, and storage space. It can be returned to a single family home or a combination of the two. Two on-street parking passes are available.Exposed brick walls and ceiling beams, plaster walls, hardwood floors, and fireplace hearths retain the charm and architectural details of the original c. 1795 dwelling. In its present condition, it is ready to be refurbished or redesigned to your needs and desires. There are two half baths on the ground level, one half bath on the 2nd floor, and a small kitchen and full bath on the third floor. A courtyard to the rear of the building provides outdoor space. There are two staircases inside, plus a space that was an elevator shaft. A low basement provides additional storage space. The location amongst colorful stuccoed buildings in Charleston's French Quarter cannot be beat. Find yourself nestled amongst art galleries, offices, retail establishments, and world-famous dining attractions. (Magnolia's is just outside the side door.) Walk to the Market, East Bay or Meeting, or Broad Streets, or the waterfront. Enjoy a direct view of St. Phillip's steeple from the front of the building and hear its bells chime the hours. Whether you are looking for a historic home, downtown office, or live-and-work space, 44 State Street is an excellent opportunity to craft your dreams.
