Extraordinary opportunity to own an 18th century Charleston single house. Built in 1769 (as evinced by a piece of mahogany signed by the builder, found in the walls) at the corner of Church and Water Streets in a quiet residential area South of Broad in historic Charleston, SC. This home has all the charm of a historic property with all the modern conveniences and an unbeatable location.

45 Church Street windowEnter from the street through a fragrant trellis onto the first of two gracious piazzas. The sunny entry hall accesses a grand sitting room with gleaming original heart pine floors, paneled walls, and fireplace. The spacious dining room has built-in display cabinets, its own fireplace, and an entry onto the piazza. A hyphen between the original main house and kitchen building accommodates the modern kitchen with gas range, marble countertops, and a deep farmhouse sink. It is large enough to accommodate a breakfast table. The first floor is finished by a bright family room in the original kitchen building, with a full-wall hearth and rare beehive baking oven. A secondary entrance steps out onto an iron balcony with curving brick staircase into the courtyard.

Ascend the main stairs to the second floor for the sun-drenched master wing, including a modern bath with dual sinks, walk-in shower, and soaking tub. It also affords access to the second floor piazza as well as a walk-out iron balcony. The master suite adjoins a room with built-in bookshelves and fireplace that can be used as a library/sitting room/office or an additional bedroom. Another large, light-filled bedroom with fireplace and a second full bath complete this level. Ample closet space, including a walk-in master closet, accompanies each of the bedrooms.

45 Church Street sink detailThe third floor is composed of two additional bedrooms with charming dormer windows plus another full bath with stunning views of downtown Charleston and the harbor. The yard includes a brick privacy fence and courtyard with fountain, as well as 3 coveted off-street parking spaces. The waterfront and harbor are just steps away. A short walk takes you to the all shopping, dining, and culture downtown Charleston offers. This remarkable opportunity to indulge in South of Broad living will not last long.
