Located on one of Charleston's most private and quiet streets, 7 Greenhill is truly enchanting. You enter the home through the street door onto the piazza which overlooks the large front garden. The interior is charming, with fantastic historic details such as period dentil moldings, heart pine floors, and large original brick fireplaces. The living room features sets of french doors that open onto the piazza and large garden beyond, and is anchored by a gas fireplace with lovely mantle. The adjacent dining area has french limestone floors and is connected to sophisticated sitting room by a large butler's pantry and wet bar area - all beautifully paneled in rare sinker cypress and cleverly kitted out with hidden beverage drawers and abundant storage. The sunny sitting room featureswood beams on the ceiling, a charming window seat banquette, and 3 sets of glass doors that open onto the patio and plunge pool. Along the pool, there is an elegant mural with a vista of the Italian countryside as envisioned by artist Lynne Riding. The fabulous sitting room flows into the eat-in kitchen, cozy with a gas fireplace and large gas range. On the second floor, there is a lovely corner bedroom with lots of natural light, along with a full bathroom with tiled tub/shower and marble topped vanity. Also on the second floor is a charming wood paneled library/sitting room with built-in bookcases and another large brick fireplace. This room opens onto the sunny second floor porch, which overlooks the large garden. The Clodagh-designed master bedroom has 2 sets of french doors that open onto enclosed porch, currently used a gym. The master bath has his & hers sides, each with closets, sinks, and connected in the middle with the dual-sided walk-in jetted shower. The current owners literally "raised the roof" and added the third floor and copper roof about 20 years ago. The third floor has a vaulted ceiling and features wooden walls & ceiling, exposed beams & ductwork, and lots of windows. It is one large open space, with an adjacent full bathroom with shower. This generous and loft-like space could be a very large guest suite, or reconfigured as a couple of rooms with the addition of some simple walls. The house is unique and private as it overlooks other gardens on all 4 sides. There is off-street parking, and the entire property is fenced for privacy. History points to the original structure at 7 Greenhill as a private fishing club on the outside of the walled city in the 18th century. The property eventually became part of the Greenhill estate and the house was expanded over time, with the most recent renovation in 2017.
