Reside in one of downtown Charleston’s most unique architectural treasures in one of its most convenient locations: 309 Meeting Street. Unit 5 is situated on the top floor of the 1894 Romanesque Revival building at the corner of Calhoun and Meeting Streets. It is in the back of the building, away from street and foot traffic. Access the condo from a shared hallway with a rooftop view of downtown Charleston and the Old Citadel building. Walk into a bright, open living room with 10-foot+ high ceilings. It is filled with working windows with original architectural casings. The entire unit is freshly painted and has new laminate wood flooring and a brand new AC system.
The kitchen has been completely renovated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, plus a pantry. One window opens onto roof access with plenty of space for lounging in the sun or a container garden. The literal highlight of the room is the massive roof lantern skylight that dominates the living space, bathing it in sunlight. This architectural feature is thought to be original to the building. A hallway with another sunny window leads down a classic spiral staircase to the bedroom level. The bathroom has also been newly remodeled. There is a stackable laundry closet and a surprisingly large walk-in closet for a unit this size. An original arched window lets plenty of sunlight into the bedroom.
309 Meeting Street has a beautiful shared courtyard garden that functions as your own private park. Three fountains provide soothing waterscape sounds. Flowers, shrubbery and butterflies abound. You’ll forget you’re in the heart of the city. One private parking space located behind the building off Calhoun Street is included, but you’ll hardly need a car. The superb location is right in the center of downtown Charleston. Marion Square and its weekend farmers market, the College of Charleston, King Street dining and shopping, The Charleston Museum and the South Carolina Aquarium are all within a short walk. A bus stop for easy access to public transportation is right across street. Experience the convenience, pleasure and culture of living in historic downtown Charleston at 309 Meeting Street.
