This iconic downtown residence was built in 1838 and is nestled in the heart of the Ansonborough neighborhood. Enjoy all that historic downtown Charleston has to offer just footsteps from your front door--including local shops, restaurants, parks and galleries--while still benefiting from the privacy of being in a truly residential neighborhood. The three-story home is filled with beautifully preserved historic details, updated finishes, a traditional floor plan, five fireplaces and an inviting rear courtyard. An entry foyer welcomes you into the home and transitions into the formal living room--complete with built-in bookshelves, a fireplace and large windows overlooking the neighborhood. A large formal dining room leads to the contemporary kitchen which features sleek cabinetry, marble counters, a tin ceiling, penny tile flooring, high-end stainless steel appliances and a cozy breakfast nook. The home's four bedrooms are located on the second and third floors. Each bedroom suite has a fireplace, which adds an abundance of charm to the space, and an elegantly appointed en suite bath with upscale details such as marble floors, tiled showers and polished nickel fixtures. One of the best features of the home is the private, walled courtyard in the rear of the property. This lushly landscaped retreat is perfect for outdoor entertaining throughout the year with a brick patio, ivy-covered walls and a fountain. There is also a dedicated parking area with ample off-street parking spaces. Perfect property for a full-time residence or a lock-and-leave second home in the center of the city.
