24 King Street Charleston, SC 29401 $3,545,000
Nestled in the coveted South of Broad neighborhood, this remarkable Charleston Single delivers elegance and charm throughout its light-filled interior and exceptional outdoor living spaces. The home was built in 1790 and is known as the John Laurens North House. Double piazzas provide ample space for relaxing and the home sits on a double lot so there is a very large backyard that was designed for outdoor entertaining. A beautiful entry foyer welcomes you into the home where you will find a traditional floor plan with custom details and sophisticated craftsmanship. Located on adjacent sides of the foyer, the formal living and dining rooms are bright and inviting with large windows, heart pine floors, detailed moldings, crystal chandeliers and fireplaces with marble surrounds. A recently renovated gourmet kitchen showcases quartz countertops, custom white cabinets, modern light fixtures, and a large center island. There is also a butler's pantry, mudroom, and sitting room off the kitchen (with outdoor access). All five bedrooms are located on the second and third floors. The thoughtfully appointed master suite encompasses the entire second floor and features a fireplace and en-suite bath with dual pedestal sinks, elegant finishes, and a tiled shower. There is also a separate sitting room/den. Two additional well-sized guest bedrooms are found on the third floor, along with a nicely finished bath. Fourteen sets of french doors provide great connectivity to the outdoor living spaces. A brick courtyard, accented with colorful landscaping and a fountain, flows from the piazza and transitions into the stone dining patio. Expert landscaping, including tea olives, magnolias, azaleas and palmettos, further enhance the private yard. A manicured lawn, flanked by Charleston brick walls, extends from the patio and leads to a small courtyard with a circular garden. The home's location is also ideal--just a short walk to The Battery, restaurants, shops and galleries while still being in a very residential neighborhood.
