Property Description

Location at its best. Modern living history with X zone and MIL Guest Suite. Iconic 1800's Charleston Single with an exceptional perch on some of the highest ground downtown. Rare for a single-house to have open air space, this property enjoys quiet mornings and sunset views of the Joseph Manigault House and Gardens, walking distance to the best restaurants and shopping, steps to a number of city parks and greenspaces, the Gaillard Center, Marion Square Farmer's Market, the Aquarium, Children's and Charleston Museum, Charleston Music Hall as well as quick access to anywhere downtown or Mt. Pleasant/West Ashley. The main house offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2nd floor den, kitchen and breakfast nook, living and dining rooms, main floor 1/2 bath and laundry, and lots of closets/storage oa deep lot with parking for several cars in addition to the private and shaded garden courtyard. A separately metered/Legally Zoned Charleston B&B studio apartment (1 BR/1BA) in rear operates successfully as a 5-Star listing on VRBO with strong rental history. Maintain the B&B, use as MIL Guest Suite, or simple renovation to combine off the Master for an expansive bathroom and bedroom suite. Current owners have methodically transformed so many features throughout the home and its structure, while carefully preserving the integrity of the house and adding significant value over the last 7 years. Built in 1852 as the first of "Houston's Row", it represents the most well-located (without neighbor on porch-side) and authentic of those remaining with original details throughout, double piazzas running the full length of the house, beautiful heart-pine flooring on all three floors, custom wall & ceiling beadboard on third floor and 4 brick fireplaces. Improvements include interior and exterior shutters, railings and metal drip edge on both piazzas, roof upgrades and Hydrostop coating (2019), dual HVAC units (new 2014 and 2015), Tankless Rinnai (2019), various kitchen and bath updates, brick garden and landscaping, chimney work and caps, window replacements and preservation to name a few. Lastly, the house is incredibly efficient with extremely low utilities and offers additional storage or cellar potential in the massive crawl space underneath the house. Act quick...
