Property description

Fully Restored 1820's home with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, modern kitchen, Italian tile baths, great fixtures, convenient to everything sleeps 6 easily. Plenty of off street parking, walking distance to museums, galleries, King Street nightlife, restaurants and attractions. A great way to see and explore historic Charleston with friends and family where you can easily walk anywhere in town in 15 minutes or less. The House was built in the early 19th century on what was once the outskirts of Old Charleston but is now definitely in the center of the historic district. It's 5 blocks from Marion Square and every direction has houses on the National Historic Register. There is a large gated backyard with a big patio for barbecuing and also plenty of off street parking which is in short supply downtown. This is a walker's dream. Perfect for Artists and Photographers. A great way to live like a native in downtown Charleston with all the comforts of home.
