The bustling Charleston Docks were just a block away on ''Bay Street'' when an English ship's captain built himself this two -story home with a third level facade in 1840. It was part of the old Walled City, known as the French Quarter. This very private extra large lot holds one of the only 2 wooden structures on Historic State Street. It balances a 19th century elegance with up to date touches. Brickwork, original Heartpine Floors and exposed Beams are throughout! This home has it all for those who want to be in the middle of everything, shops, museums, galleries and restaurants. A block form Waterfront Park, you are next to the Charleston Harbor. Parking Court can accommodate up to 4 cars. Behind the Philip Simmons designed wrought iron gates, its focal point is a cascading WaterFountain. Enter through the wooden gate and you are in an Oasis designed using the concept of "garden rooms". Enclosed on all 3 sides by time-worn brick walls, the alfresco "Dining Room" is surrounded by Palmetto Trees, Chinese Palms and a 130 year old Japanese Maple. Very Private. Very Charleston. The home was featured in the 2018 Historic Charleston Foundation's Festival of Houses and Gardens. It has been a location in the filming of "North, South", "Scarlett" and "Cold Mountain". See Photo.
