Built in 1834, this new rental is one of only seven condo units in the historic Frederick Shaffer House, which was built in the Greek Revival architectural style. The house has a columned piazza across the front with four sturdy rocking chairs for your sole enjoyment. The home also boasts a gorgeous central hall.
Our newly renovated unit served long ago as the main receiving area of the home. Once you step inside onto the original heart of pine wood floors of this luxury unit, you'll be enthralled by the 13 foot ceilings surrounded by stunningly detailed plasterwork. Bright cheerful light shines through the many large windows.
The main living area is open to the magnificent kitchen with sky high cabinets, designed by a talented Charleston architect, and featuring a top of the line Bosch appliance package. Magnificent Kashmir White granite counter tops accentuate the space and top the kitchen island, which also serves as the unit's main eating area. A gas marble fireplace centers the room in warmth and is highlighted by elegant decorating details.
Off of the kitchen are the master and guest bedrooms. The spacious and romantic master bedroom features an iron King size bed with comfortable soft bedding that promises serenity. Tastefully decorated, the room features a marble gas fireplace, walk in closet with a brand new stackable washer and dryer, and an en suite master bathroom with soaring ceilings. The latter is furnished with fresh towels, double sinks with granite counters, and a large lavish shower.
Also off of the main living room, which includes a pull-out couch for additional sleep arrangements, you will find a lovely guest bedroom featuring an elegant queen size bed. This cozy airy room surrounded by tall windows is decorated in soft colors for their calming charm.
Take a step outside of the guest bedroom and enter into the guest bathroom. Enjoy a scented bubble bath or a warm shower in the new porcelain claw foot tub. The bathroom sink is surrounded by immaculate marble counter tops.
On behalf of our guests, we provide high speed Internet service and cable television. A very special perk is access to this unit's parking space--a rare treasure in downtown Charleston! Your car will be secure behind a gated iron fence located on the property.
Married for 27 years, we fell in love with Charleston the first time we visited. From then on, our dream was to own a place in our favorite city. In September 2012, our dream came true!
The Owner purchased this condo in 2012
From the moment we walked inside the front door of the unit, we were mesmerized by the history of the home, the bright shining light, hardwood floors, tall ceilings and the amazingly intricate plasterwork. We have been to visit many historic homes in Charleston and we have yet to see anything else like it.
We worked with our architect and contractor to further elevate the already existing beauty of this unit. We carefully and lovingly renovated the space paying special attention to every tiny detail related to design, color and decor. We wanted to create a soothing haven where there was no option but to be happy and peaceful. It's a pleasure to share our joy with others.
This beautiful Charleston pied-a-terre is simply perfect. It was such a pleasure to return each day to its welcoming, airy, luxurious ambience. It isn't just the remarkable architectural features and splendid decorating that make this property so special, but also the pains the owners have taken to provide guests with the best provisions, from the linens to electronics to supplies, covering every eventuality. It was truly uplifting to be ensconced in this lovely and elegant home.
Staying here is like taking a step back in time where quality and craftsmanship were paramount. The pictures are beautiful, but can't begin to encompass the full magnitude of the colonial charm. There isn't a single detail overlooked here; from the decor to the lush bed linens that would rival even the finest hotel.
The location is in a prime spot centrally located in between the fashion district and all the dining and nightlife Charleston has to offer. While everything is within walking distance you'll be happy that off-street parking is available and is a real treat for downtown. The owners are amazing to work with and respond in a timely fashion to all comments and concerns. They truly provide the personal touch that makes this rental feel like a home away from home.
Our property is perfectly located nearby King Street and the historic market area as well as the College of Charleston and MUSC.
