How about a brand-new architect-designed solid masonry home, all built to historic scale and today's codes! Rough sawn floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, double piazzas, and all new copper roof. Happily enjoy years of reduced maintenance.The charming floor plan follows the typical Charleston Single style, but is thoughtfully adjusted for today's aesthetic and maximum sunlight. Perfectly scaled by architects Bevan and Liberatos, every inch of this home has been thought through. Scored stucco walls, intricately designed exterior shutters, high-quality windows and doors, all spec'd to 19th century proportions.The kitchen features period charm, anchored by a restored vintage O'Keefe and Merritt gas range with 6 burners and 4 ovens. The SMEG refrigerator looks the part, surrounded by classic toned lacquered cabinets and lighting. The kitchen/dining area overlooks the grand piazza with floor-to-ceiling windows designed to walk through while entertaining.
The rear of the first floor is a charming half-bath with lacquered walls, and a walk-in pantry/laundry room that also opens to the piazza.The den/office at the rear of the first floor is surrounded by windows and offers a built-in bookcase.
The second level is the bedroom floor. To the front, you will find two large guest bedrooms, both with access to the second-floor piazza via French doors, as well as a charming shared bath in the hall with tub/shower.
The master suite flows to the rear of the second floor. Clean, crisp vintage details throughout, including a claw-foot tub with a separate walk-in shower. There is a spacious walk-in closet leading to a generous bedroom space, again opening to a gracious second-floor piazza via 3 sets of French doors.
The attic space was designed to be easily incorporated into the floor plan with the beautiful stair case extending to the top. The attic area has dormer windows, foam insulation and rough plumbing if you desire additional bedrooms or another space for the family to gather (from the 5' drop, another 700sqft can be economically added).
Given this grand home was built to today's flood codes, the ground level offers plenty of storage space, future garage space, or a covered courtyard from the side or rear. Gated off-street parking.
