Beaufort house description

Welcome to our little 2BR/1BA 1937 bungalow!
This little house is in the BEST location! It is just 7 short blocks to our beautiful waterfront park where you can enjoy one of the many 'porch swings' facing the Beaufort River. There are lots of restaurants, shops, and galleries accessible from the park and from Bay Street. The historic Point neighborhood is just 4 blocks from the house. This is a great area to wander and explore - filled with antebellum mansions where planters and their families spent summers enjoying the almost constant breezes from the river. Also - this house is such a popular rental that we have converted our other little property, Duke Cottage, to a VRBO. If this one is booked, or if you need additional space, please look at VRBO #326642. PLUS - we just renovated the Sarah Gibbes Barnwell House ca 1835! It is a 3 BR 3.5 BA beauty 1 block from the waterfront park. Have a look at VRBO #472201.

The house is beautifully furnished with pieces from Century and Hickory White. There is a gracious dining room with a chandelier above for ambiance. One of our favorite guests is an artist and he did a small watercolor of Baby Charles while staying there - he had it framed and it hangs in the dining room.

The bathroom used to be the low point of the house, but is now totally (I mean all the way down to new floor joists and new sheetrock - TOTALLY NEW) renovated and FANTASTIC! It has a step in shower with dual shower heads each with their own control. The shower doors are thick frameless tempered glass with bright chrome fittings. In keeping with the era, the walls are white 'subway' tile and the floor is black and white mosiacs. The vanity has a beautiful granite top, and stores plenty of additional towels below. The window has an insert of frosted glass in front of it for privacy, while still allowing light into the room. It's really special. One of our guests had a painting done of the house, and it hangs in the bathroom!

The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a full size washer dryer. This winter we added shelves supported by antique metal brackets across the windows above the sink. It is a fun way to display all the plates, mugs, and glassware and it freed up cabinet space for groceries.

The Master has a queen sized bed, and the 2nd bedroom has a day bed with 2 twin mattresses. All mattresses are 2010 Sealy, and all linens are high thread count cotton. This is a very cozy, quiet little home. ****Starting Fall of 2013 (after a month of travel around France) we are switching out all of our Queen bedding to white European Duvet & Shams - there will still be the high thread count sheets, but instead of a dry cleaned bed cover that you have to remove to sleep under, now you will have a freshly washed duvet cover and shams that can be used for sleeping. These are changed between each guest. It's more work, but it as we discovered, it is a better sleeping experience for the guest!

For your entertainment there is a 32' Sony TV with HD cable, a DVD player with surround sound, and a VHS player. In the Master bedroom there is a CD player.

Outside, where we used to have a bocce ball court, John just finished installing a GORGEOUS antique brick patio (10' x 50') that we have furnished with Lane seating. The seating group includes a loveseat, 2 lounge chairs ottomans, and a cocktail table. There is a 'ceiling fan on a stick' to help keep the 'skeeters away and provide a breeze when there isn't one. You can now dine al fresco, as we have also added an outdoor dining table and chairs. There is plenty of shade, so no umbrellas are needed.

Pets are allowed with prior approval and a refundable security deposit. Please discuss with us the kind and size of the pet you wish to bring so that we can determine it's appropriateness.

Please check out the map for restaurant and shopping recommendations. There is a binder in the house with more info and maps and menus. Feel free to call us with any questions or recommendations!

                  Location

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  We are in the heart of the historic district, and an easy walk to everything! Our waterfront park is the most beautiful on the east coast, and it is just a short walk. Come see!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: As soon as our son went off to college we headed south! We looked for 6 years, focusing on the stretch of coast between Amelia Island and Charleston. We just kept coming back to Beaufort. Being downtown is such fun - we can walk and bike to everything. We love to boat and fish and the lifestyle here is perfect for that!

                  Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
                  We bought this little bungalow just 6 blocks from our main house to use as an overflow guest house when we have big groups of friends come to town. We had a whole house full of furniture from my mother-in-law's house in FL to deal with, so the timing was perfect. We decided to rent it when we aren't using it, and that's what got us here!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Baby Charles has been so popular, we bought the cottage right behind it! Have a look at VRBO #326642, Duke Cottage. The properties are adjacent so, if you need more space, consider booking them together! It is an easy walk to the waterfront and all that area offers. Great restaurants, shops, and art galleries are all right there. We keep a binder in the house filled with local info and recommendations. Last year we added VRBO #472201 - a spectacular 1830 antebellum home we just totally renovated! 1 block from the waterfront park. We JUST added Hermitage House #631501, in a great neighborhood 1.4 miles from this house adjacent to the rail trail!
