(Please Note: With recent changes to laws in Charleston, we are limited to one booking per 30-days. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOUR DAYS APPEAR BOOKED AND TO DISCUSS COST. THE CALENDAR IS FLEXIBLE AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR STAY.) A classic apartment in the heart of the historic district in this charming city, you will have the entire first floor of an 1860 Greek Revival single house with 12-foot ceilings, original Heart Pine Floors, crown molding, ceiling medallions, three fireplaces and four shuttered French doors onto the piazza (Charleston for “porch”.) We will be forever grateful that previous owners had the foresight to keep the home in this beautiful condition while adding all the necessities for modern living.
The floor plan includes lovely large rooms with a living room, a bedroom, and a large eat-in kitchen fully stocked for a cook. The pied-a-terre sleeps two on a queen bed. We provide beautiful linen and cotton sheets and feather pillows. The home is furnished simply with high-end antiques, original art, exquisite natural fabrics and antique rugs.
The private porch spanning the length of the building is spectacular with both a table for dining and lounge seating under the ceiling fans for having a drink or gazing at the stars and adds almost 400 sf to the 1000 sf living space. In a city where parking can be a problem and parking tickets an expensive proposition, you will have access to our private parking spot inside the locked gate. There is also a private laundry room on the main floor.
The apartment is on a residential street off the beaten path of tourists. It is a short two blocks to King Street, with the best shopping and restaurants the city has to offer. You can also walk to The Battery, the farmer’s market, the grocery, the local deli, liquor store, the meat and fish markets, coffee shops and an elegant French pastry and chocolate shop. Quick access to the Ravenel Bridge allows for an easy trip to Sullivan’s Island and the beaches.
This is our own home and one that expresses our love of the history, architecture and the lifestyle of Charleston. We want you to live like a local! It is important that you know that this historic home has been lovingly divided into 4 condos. Only three people live on the property full time - there are no children or animals living on the property. Our immediate neighbors are young to middle aged professionals and you will likely see and hear them come and go while you visit. We want to be sure our guests are comfortable with a multi-family housing setting. This is a non-smoking unit, no pets are allowed, and minimum age of 30 policy. No parties or venue events are allowed. We ask for a damage deposit from all clients and require the purchase of rental insurance.
