Agent Remarks

Rare opportunity to own a very large, stately home close to where the first settlers in Charleston lived! Homes across the street front on Ashley Creek which leads directly to Charles Town Landing State Park. While this home could use some updating, many of the high end features are similar to today's highest end construction. You will arrive on a double width tabby drive leading to an over-sized two car attached garage. The wide front porch is elevated, perfect for catching the breezes off the creek. Note the low maintenance brick veneer exterior and the Pella replacement windows. Inside, you are welcomed in a gracious foyer with a private powder room and coat closet. The handsome study/library to the left is filled with custom cabinetry with glass doors and a fireplace. Please click for The eat-in kitchen is to the right and features high end custom wood cabinetry, under counter lighting and lots of counter space, including a center island. The breakfast room off the kitchen is probably large enough for a table for eight, with room for optional bar stools. Additional breakfast room cabinetry could be used for buffet dining. The down draft cook top is located in a lovely brick arch. The kitchen features solid surface counters with an integral sink, tile floors, Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher, wall oven, microwave/convection oven and trash compactor (buyer may prefer to replace with beverage refrigerator). Be sure to check out the pantry cabinet with hinged shelving. The huge great room is located on the rear of the home and features the second fireplace with elevated brick hearth. The formal dining room on the rear of the home has another wall of custom lighted built-ins with glass doors, but still room for an additional sideboard or hutch, if desired. The $35,000 Waterford chandelier (and matching sconces in foyer) is negotiable, although subject to prior sale. A sun room with a vaulted wood ceiling is located off the dining room. This tile floored room overlooks the in-ground pool, which has an integral spa with waterfall into pool. Another back door closer to the garage accesses a large full bathroom for use by swimmers. This bathroom has two closets in addition to the coat closet in the nearby hallway. The giant laundry room, also located off this hallway, is easily accessible from the kitchen. Giant is an understatement since this room has a built in desk that can be used as a home office, a pantry closet, another coat or broom closet, a "wet closet" for mops, built-in ironing board and the washer/dryer area, which appears to be plumbed for a laundry sink or could also be used for hanging clothes. The owner has a large wine cooler in this room or maybe you prefer a second refrigerator or freezer. Upstairs are four good size bedrooms, including the master suite. The two front bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath while the back guest bedroom has an en suite bath. One front bedroom has a large walk-in closet and the other has two large closets. The master suite is located on the rear of the home. The L-shaped vanity in the master bath has two sinks. There is a corner tub, a separate tile shower with corner seat and a private water closet. On the other side of the bedroom is the dream closet room with a built in bureau right in the middle of the room and a wall of cabinets in addition to all the hanging space. (The small safe can stay.) Continue through the closet to access a very quiet and surprisingly spacious home office with his and hers desks. Attic storage is easily accessible from either end of this office. But wait! There are back stairs leading to an enormous finished room over the garage. This apartment-size room could be used as a media room, family room, even fifth bedroom and living space for an in-law or teenager since the "pool bath" with two closets is just a few steps down from the FROG. The FROG has easily accessible attic storage on both sides. In addition to the in-ground pool in the back yard, there is a shady deck off the living room and a grilling deck located closer to the kitchen. No seller disclosure is available, but we think there are four separate HVAC systems, some newer than others. The roof is newer (approx 2-3 years old, some evidence of old roof leaks). The crawl space was encapsulated a few years ago and has a dehumidifier. It appears the flood zone will soon change from a VE to an AE zone. An old survey and elevation certificate are available and there is an assumable flood policy. The home appears to have been well maintained, but the seller will make no repairs.
