This beautifully cared for Charleston single, circa 1830, includes a spacious gated garden, covered piazza, two income-producing apartments in the Carriage House, ample parking, and garage. Conveniently located in Wraggborough, the home is in close proximity to parks, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment on King Street, and is just 4.5 blocks to Marion Square. Step through the iron and brick gate and through the piazza before entering into a central foyer stair with original mahogany banister and newel posts. Original heart of pine floors, cypress wainscotting, and pulled plaster moldings can be found throughout the 1830 portion of the house. The first floor boasts a light-filled formal living room, formal dining room, powder room, kitchen, and family room with 9+ foot ceilings. The kitchen and family room, with Brazilian cherry floors, are both part of the circa 2002 addition. The kitchen includes a gas range, butcher-block island, and stainless appliances. The family room off the kitchen could also serve as a breakfast room. A modern back staircase from the family room leads to a study off the master suite. The study features custom mahogany and Peruvian walnut cabinetry and bookcases. This room could also serve as another bedroom. The front stairs lead to a spacious second floor landing, between a sunny bedroom and the master suite. The suite includes a gas fireplace and a spacious bathroom with dual sinks, soaking tub, and generous shower, as well as a laundry room. The third floor offers another private suite with bedroom, a full bathroom, exceptional storage, and original exposed beam ceilings. A basement, accessed from the garden, is the perfect workshop or storage space to complete the main home. A grand pecan and other trees shade the tranquil garden and gravel courtyard, perfect for entertaining. The long gated driveway, along the side of the house opposite the piazza leads to the Carriage House in the back. The Carriage House, built circa 2002, consists of two separate apartments and an owner's garage. The over-sized garage includes room for a vehicle (or boat) and abundant storage with two walls of industrial shelving. One apartment is a large, bright studio with a full bathroom, above the garage. The other is a 2-bedroom, 1 bathroom, two-story apartment, with a long-term tenant.
