Property Description

Historically and architecturally significant, The Jonah M. Venning House c.1831, is situated on the highest ground in Historic Downtown and is noted as one of the oldest Greek Revival homes in Charleston. This large estate offers high street presence highlighted by its wide lot, the double piazza, forged ironwork, and grand marble staircase.The entry hall is flanked by a gracious living room on one side and formal dining room on the other. Single planks of heart-pine flooring span from wall to wall with original high ceilings and plaster cornice moldings. Two original anterooms are restored and host a private office with a fireplace on the west and a butler's pantry on the east leading into a recent one-story rear addition with a large modern kitchen.The upper two bedroom levels include four large light filled rooms, each with four windows, a fireplace and en-suite bathrooms. The finished English basement with exposed heart pine beams, joists and brickwork provides guest / live-in quarters, rentable office, or wine room. The .23 acre lot affords ample parking, and is protected with keyless motorized gates and security. This home is located just two blocks east of the Dewberry Hotel and Marion Square, famously known for the local Saturday Farmer's market, Annual Spoleto Festival, and South Eastern Wildlife Exposition. The Charleston Waterfront Aquarium, Zero George Hotel, along with countless noted restaurants, art galleries Charleston's finest Concert & Performance Halls are all within walkable distance. Charlotte Street is one of the highest and quietest tree lined streets where this particular property requires no flood insurance and is a local's favorite! Restored by John Paul Huguley, Founder of the American College of the Building Arts, and as an adjacent neighbor, this Category 2 Structure can be part of a maintenance and stewardship plan. This nearly 200 year old structure, built by a man who owned a lumber mill, sold to a family of stone importers and owned by architects contributing to sustainable design with centuries of building materials and compressed fiber garden walls gives importance to an old historical structure with time tested architecture and building arts making it a very unique estate!
