Property description

This beautifully detailed Charleston single is centrally located on a picturesque street in the heart what’s happening in Charleston. It is only a short walk away to Upper King Street, Marion Square or the Gaillard Auditorium . You can have it all! The Garden District neighborhood of historic downtown Charleston makes for the perfect vacation rental spot when you visit South Carolina.
While at home, you will find a comfortable living room with gas fireplace, built in bookcases, and plantation shutters. (There are two couches that could be used for sleeping.) The formal dining room features a candle burning chandelier, built in bookcases and a table that can expand to seat 10. The gourmet kitchen with Corian countertops has stainless steel appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, conventional, convection and microwave oven, a Jenn-Air cook top, Bosch dishwasher, and garbage disposer. Also downstairs is a Utility room with new washer/dryer, and a half bath
Upstairs are two bedrooms and two baths. The Master has a King sized bed with Tempur-pedic Cloud mattress (heaven!) The second bedroom features a Queen bed and antique armoire. Towels and linens for all beds and bathrooms are provided. You will find hardwood floors and extensive molding throughout to give added charm and warmth.
The intimate rear deck, set in a beautiful garden of flowers and plants, is available for outdoor entertainment. It includes comfortable deck furniture and a gas grill. Off-street parking for 1 car is available.
From this elegant Charleston single, an easy walk will bring you to the aquarium, Fort Sumter visitor center, harbors tours, the Aiken-Rhett house, and the Charleston museum. Within a few blocks there are excellent restaurants, antique and art galleries, the Charleston Visitor's Center, the old market and, of course, King Street, named one of the top shopping streets in the country. It’s only a 15 minute drive to ocean beaches for collecting shells, swimming, kayaking, and lying in the sun with a good book. The area is a golfer’s delight with dozens of courses available.
If you want down time, there are 3 flat screen televisions, (45” in living area, 42” in Master bedroom, 19” in kitchen), and Wi-Fi Internet access.

The home is available by the week or month.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Jim & Sherry came to Charleston 11 years ago to finish business careers and begin retirement. We found a beautiful house, made friends and experienced a 'low-country' life beyond all expectations. Every day has an event in Charleston and all within walking distance. Now that retirement is in full force, we plan to spend time traveling and visiting friends and relatives around the world, but Charleston will always remain our home

Why the Owner Chose Charleston:
We fell in love with the Garden District of downtown. While close to everything, it is still a 'neighborhood.' When you walk to a restaurant or concert, friends and strangers smile and speak.
