This exceptional property has been returned to its original elegance from top to bottom and now includes 3 separate residences with their own private entrances and 3 separate utility meters. The ''Main House'' has 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths exuding Charleston Charm with its high ceilings, original antique heart pine floors with oak inlay borders, crown moldings, multiple fireplaces, large windows and double piazza. As you enter the foyer, the elegant front parlor with bay windows is to your left.Ahead is the grand ballroom which can be separated into a living room and dining room by simply closing the fully functional original wooden and glass sliding doors, or leave them open for a natur

al flow through the house, back to the gourmet kitchen. The renovations in this area include custom cabinetry with lighted wine rack, exposed brick and stucco walls, granite countertops, an oversized iron sink, and a huge window allowing tons of natural light. The living areas have traditional double doors leading to the 1st floor piazza overlooking the beautiful courtyard. There is also a bedroom/office, full bathroom and an additional laundry area with second refrigerator just off the kitchen. Upstairs in the main house is the gorgeous master suite with bath and 2 additional bedrooms and hall bathroom. A separate 1 bedroom apartment has been created upstairs with its own private ground floor entrance. This apartment has hardwood floors, custom cabinets, granite countertops,w/d and 2nd floor piazza access overlooking the beautiful courtyard. Finally the all brick carriage house is located by walking through the side court yard and entering through the private antique wrought iron and stucco gates where you are greeted by the whimsical Greek god Pan holding up the entrance columns. The carriage house is a jewel box of beautiful and historical architectural detail. A rare treat is that this house also has 6 off street parking spaces. It currently has 3 excellent sources of rental income or can be a fantastic private residence with income and/or guest houses. All of this is found in the quiet and pristine historic preservation district 1 block from MUSC directly across from Ashley Hall School. This property has had NO water/flooding issues at any point during ownership and sits high & dry.
