All new furnishings including Pottery Barn and antique pieces.

Enjoy your morning coffee and the incredible views from the balcony as the sun rises over historic Charleston. Look down to Judge Trott's cottage; - from the 1700s this is one of the oldest masonry buildings in Charleston; and next to that is the Old Powder Magazine. History is right on your doorstep! Later this is a beautiful spot to enjoy your cocktail of choice before heading out to one of the many exquisite fine dining establishments. World renowned 'Husk' Restaurant, High Cotton, Cru, The Ordinary, McCradys, Pearlz... just to name a few all so close!

Relax, unwind and enjoy life while being steps away from Charleston's incredible dining, art galleries, shopping,theaters and the waterfront Battery.

The number of historic sites in Charleston South Carolina is astonishing.

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About: We had always wanted to visit Charleston and when our daughter decided to go to school in South Carolina we decided now is our chance. We fell in love with the city. So much history, great food, warm weather and friendly people. Originally from North Yorkshire, England, Charleston immediately felt like 'home' - the history, beautiful architecture and the 'small town' feeling was exactly like being back in Europe.

                  Why Charleston:
                  There were a few criteria when we started looking for a property...1) Downtown so we could walk everywhere... 2) New/renovated, we were not looking for a project to fix up; yet currently living in a 200 year old Cape we needed character and history! 3) outdoor living...this property has a great balcony that overlooks St Phillips. Perfect for breakfast as the sun rises; gorgeous spot to read after walking the historic streets; and fascinating to watch the horse and carriages and the folk exploring as we sip on a cocktail before dinner.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Balcony! Incredible views Ability to look down right on 2 of many historic sites. Steps to multiple incredible restaurants .... Its always about the food!!
