History abounds in the c. 1796 Frederick Wolfe House. A Charleston Single that is a home of such historic significance rarely becomes available in the French Quarter. This house has what everyone is looking for: located on a corner lot on a cobblestone street, historic high ground, just one block north of Broad St. Gated off-street parking for two cars. Private, secluded garden that runs the length of the double wraparound piazzas, with lush vegetation that gives the feel of a home in the West Indies. As soon as you enter the first floor piazza, you'll feel like you've been transported back in time. Every room is flooded with light from the windows and doors, and offers views of the piazza and gardens. Original heart pine floors in the entire house. An updated and charming European kitchen with laundry, and access to the piazza and driveway. 4 working fireplaces. The flow of the first floor is an entertainer's dream, indoors connects with outdoors from almost every room. The second floor has 2 spacious bedrooms with views of the gardens. The master bath has just been renovated with a tile shower and Japanese soaking tub. A walk-in closet that you just don't find in houses of this era. The second bedroom has 4 windows and French doors to the piazza. The charming 3rd floor has a third bedroom, half bath, plus a fourth flexible space ideal for a bedroom, office,or studio. The views of Charleston rooftops and steeples are stunning. This home is truly ideal for a primary residence, or the perfect size second home. This house was saved from demolition by the Preservation Society, who launched a major campaign in 1968 to raise the funds needed to relocate the house (it was at #21 State). They then completely renovated it, and resold it to replenish their revolving fund.
