1100991 - Residential real estate
A meticulous three and a half year restoration has led to two beautiful units in the heart of downtown Charleston's Design District. 8 Vanderhorst Street Unit B consists of 1570 heated and cooled square feet and 825 sf of finished piazzas. The unit boasts original heart pine floors and shutters, 3 original fireplaces, 2 large private piazzas, elevator, private teak wine cellar, birchwood and leather closets, custom cabinetry including built in murphy bed and wet bar.The professional grade kitchen includes Viking range, Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer and Dorn Bracht water fixtures. Despite the modern conveniences the original fabric of the home was all but left in place. No new entrances to the home were put in and all rooms remain intact. From the outside, the house has not been altered in anyway, and the interior fabric has scarcely been altered. All the original floors, pocket doors, shutters, plaster moldings, ornate plaster ceiling medallions were all carefully restored and placed back in their original positions. The house also underwent an extensive structural up fit, especially the four glorious piazzas that were strengthened and the foundation that was extensively reinforced. The home includes 2 off street parking spots where cars may stay for extended periods as the location lends itself to walking to just about anywhere on peninsula. The home is steps from King Street offering the city's best in dining and shopping. 8 Vanderhorst Street was a three and half year labor of love that sought to save an all but forgotten Category 2 structure in Historic Downtown Charleston. This home is truly unique to Charleston and offers a buyer a luxurious urban living experience that is second to none.
