Don't miss this charming Charleston single house! Rare to find a non-condo detached home in this convenient foodie neighborhood for this price! Owner-occupied for many years, but would be a perfect pied-a-terre or rental. Bright & cozy, lives larger than the square footage due to upstairs & downstairs porches, plus a spacious courtyard garden. This circa 1872 home has delightful historic elements combined with tastefully updated functionality. The well-designed kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a built-in microwave, range, dishwasher & refrigerator. A quaint powder room and full size washer & dryer complete the first floor. Each bedroom has porch access & en-suite bath. Fully fenced yard has brick driveway for 2 cars, plus 2 cars can park on street. PLEASE CLICK FORThe primary bath was recently updated and includes a walk-in tile shower with decorative storage niche and glass wall. There is plenty of storage in both baths and the guest bath has a tub/shower, plus storage shelves and a clothes hanging rod.An informal dining area is located off the kitchen to the right of the staircase. Large dinner parties can be hosted al fresco in the exceedingly private garden. But you may never eat at home since so many of Charleston's finest restaurants are literally blocks away. Have breakfast at Sugar Bake Shop (1/2 block) or Holey City Bagels (1.5 blks). Lunch at Chez Nous (2 Blks)! Dinner at Southbound (1.5 blks) or the Ordinary on King St (with wonderful shopping!), just 3.5 blocks away! Even local favorites Leon's, Little Jacks, & Melfi's are less than a mile.Do you sometimes work from home? The current owner kept a desk off the living room to the left of the stairs. The guest bedroom (no closet, but room to store clothes in en-suite bath) upstairs could be a light filled office or combo office/guest room with porch access. There is also a quiet nook off the primary bedroom that leads to the porch, or maybe you'll work in the quiet courtyard garden much of the year.This home is within walking distance of DeReef & Simonton Parks (1 blk), the College of Charleston (4.5 blks), the law school (5 blks) and the Medical University (3.5 blks). Stay fit by walking to the MUSC wellness center (0.7 miles) or other close-by gyms & fitness centers, and even walk to your doctors' appointments!Public records indicate a metal standing seam roof which a former owner believed had been replaced in 1998 (per previous seller disclosure). Seller re-coated roof once. Listing agent getting estimate to paint small porch overhang that was missed and any other needed repairs. FYI, metal roofs last for decades, much longer than shingled roofs. A major renovation took place after the 1998 sale (foundation, electrical, plumbing & more per old listing). The current owner just replaced the electric water heater (replaced January 2024, accessed via hatch attached with screws located to left of and under stairs) and within the past few years installed an upstairs mini-split HVAC system with a separate thermostat for each bedroom and replaced the first-floor outdoor HVAC compressor. The current owner also recently updated the kitchen and primary bathroom.Please note that although 12 Felix St appears to be within the Cannonborough-Elliotborough short-term rental overlay district it does NOT qualify for short-term (less than 30 days) rentals since it is zoned residential (STRs must be zoned commercial). Buyers must verify all applicable laws and ordinances if interested in uses other than residential, such as qualifications required for a B&B license.Property has been well-maintained and further renovated since recent major renovation (after 1998) and is under a transferable termite service bond with Palmetto Exterminators. Water heater replaced after recent crawl space inspection identified leak. Fresh CL-100 available in documents. Like most historic homes, there are areas with evidence of old subterranean and dry wood termite damage. Owner noted known minor needed repair items (gutters & exterior lights) in seller disclosure, has since repaired replaced gutters, painted the interior and now prefers an as-is sale.Owners and long-term (6+ month) renters qualify to purchase decals to park two cars on-street ($15/yearly decal for owners, $10/6 month decal for renters). Daily passes for visitor parking on street can also be purchased from the city (up to 90 passes/year in books of 30 @ $1/daily pass for owners or 14 passes each 6 months for 6+ month renters @$5/daily pass. Renters with lease terms of 1-6 months do not qualify to purchase decals or visitor passes. Please verify parking regulations as restrictions and prices are subject to change. Driveway parking is tight and may require practice for some drivers since driver doors must be aligned with either the opening in the porch railing or past the back corner of the home. Therefore, please park on the street for showings and see listing photo of car parked in drive.
