Reside in Charleston’s most coveted neighborhood, South of Broad. 53 South Battery is a fully renovated, turn-key FitzSimons townhouse just off the beaten path, but only a block from the Battery and White Point Garden. The first floor of this traditional home features a large, bright entry/stair hall. A formal living room with fireplace opens to a formal dining room. An informal den with built-in entertainment center and library shelving overlooks the garden in the back of the house.
The newly-redone modern kitchen features white countertops and a crisp white subway tile backsplash, self-closing cabinet doors, a center island and stainless steel appliances including a wine cooler. A built-in banquette and entertainment center define the sunny breakfast nook. Hardwood floors and beautiful woodwork grace this level, including crown molding, chair rail and shadow box trim in the hall and dining room. A powder room, storage closet and pantry finish finish the space.
A Palladian window in stair hall lets in profuse light as you ascend to the second floor with another large, bright landing. Three bedrooms each open to one of three full baths, including an en suite master bath with whirlpool tub and marble vanity. All rooms have large walk-in closets. The third floor consists of a large guest suite with a full bath plus walk-in storage. Enjoy a peek at the peaks of the Ashley River from the third-floor window.
Outside, pass through a vine-covered archway and cleverly concealed equipment and outdoor storage to the lovely, private backyard garden designed by Charleston’s premier landscape architect, Loutrel Briggs. The driveway accommodates off-street parking for two vehicles. Enjoy a peaceful, genteel South of Broad lifestyle in Historic Downtown Charleston — with all the modern conveniences – at 53 South Battery.
