This newly renovated, stunning, classic Charleston Single House circa 1867 is located on one of the premier streets in Charleston's historic, South of Broad neighborhood and on high ground. A ''down-to-'the-studs'' renovation and floor plan redesign with Beau Clowney Architects has given this home an entirely new look and refreshed for modern, luxury living. The attention to detail during the renovation and superb craftsmanship has created a truly beautiful property. There is an elegant, wood paneled formal living room/library that fronts Legare Street with built in bookcases, gas fireplace, and coffered ceiling. The light-filled dining room also features a gas fireplace, coffered ceiling, handsome wood trim and wainscoting, and opens onto one of the wide piazzas overlooking the garden, perfect for entertaining. The dual-island kitchen has eat-in seating for six, atop gorgeous Calcutta gold marble islands. There is a full marble backsplash, custom steel and brass hood over a stunning La Cornue stove. The entire kitchen is framed in large glass doors and windows that overlook gardens on both sides of the house. Beyond the kitchen is a butler's appliance pantry, full laundry and mudroom, which leads to the magical garden room/living room that truly integrates the outdoors in, with large custom mahogany floor to ceiling windows and doors, soaring ceiling, and exposed beams. There is also a first floor bedroom with en suite bath, with a charming loft area for kids or additional storage. Designed by Sheila Wertimer, the garden is a true oasis with water fall feature, outdoor dining area, blue stone and brick courtyard area with fire pit, dramatic landscape lighting, and lovely plantings. The house's grand wide double piazzas overlook the garden retreat, as well as provide views down Legare Street. Upstairs, a grand master suite has been created with fully paneled woodwork, coffered ceiling, gas fireplace, dressing area with wet bar, refrigerator/wine cooler/ice maker, built in wardrobes and large double closets. The luxurious master bath is stunning, with gorgeous steam shower, heated marble floors, double vanities, and beautiful soaking tub under a large window overlooking many gardens and rooftops south of Broad. A second guest bedroom is fully paneled, and features a walk-in closet, custom vanity and large shower en suite. Notable features of this pristine property include beautiful original hardwood floors, off-street parking for 3 cars, beautiful Charleston brick and iron gates to driveway and garden, 8 copper gas lanterns, and tons of natural light, due to the house's perfect positioning relative to the neighboring properties.
