About the owner: Ann and Fred Willis have lived in the Sarah Jane Clifford House (the main house) for 20 years. The Willises renovated the existing houses on the property, which included the main house and a carriage house, and built what is now a third house-a guest cottage. The Willises have been in the real estate business since 1999 through their privately owned company, and have renovated several of their properties and built a country house on an island near Charleston. Over a period of three years, from 2010 through 2013, the Willises completed a second, substantial renovation of the two guest houses on the property. The Sarah Clifford Guest House has the distinctive characteristics of a Willis renovation: the perfect marriage of modern and historic, uncluttered, clean-lined, high quality construction and finishes, and attention to detail.
Why the Owner Chose Charleston: Location! The Sarah Clifford Guest House is perfect for 2 couples who want an ideal location and luxury accommodations. You'll enjoy a quiet, peaceful visit with easy access to all of the places you'll want to visit in downtown Charleston, including the venues for Spoleto Festival USA, the Charleston Food+Wine Festival, the Southeastern Wildlife Expo, the Cooper River Bridge Run, the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, the upper King 'foodie' restaurants, museums, historic home tours, and King Street shopping.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The quality of this newly renovated guest home sets it apart from all of the others! Beautiful, dark-stained heart pine wood floors, wood walls, 9' ceilings in the modern addition, ceiling fans, a private, enclosed patio, luxury bathrooms, heated master bath floor, and a top of the line kitchen.
