                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1993

                          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 Cottage has the distinctive characteristics of a Willis renovation: modern, uncluttered, clean-lined, high quality construction and finishes, and attention to detail.

                          Why the Owner Chose Charleston:
                          Location! The Sarah Clifford Cottage is perfect for an extended stay in downtown Charleston for 2 people who want an ideal location and modern day conveniences. 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 Cottage:
                          The quality of this newly renovated cottage sets it apart from all of the others! Beautiful, wood floors, 14' ceiling on the main upper floor, 2 new, modern bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen. The Cottage is located at the back of the property which affords a private and quiet place to get away and yet is within walking distance of the best restaurants, house museums and other popular sites and venues in downtown Charleston.
