Property Description

Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, this historic masonry property was built in the early 1800s in the Federal Style and received a Gothic renovation in the 1840s which is when the original grocery store was established at the ground level. The property sits on the corner of Pitt and Montagu Streets in Harleston Village and offers a unique mix of restored commercial and residential spaces that can be customized for a myriad of uses. The building was purchased by the current owners in 2016 and has undergone a significant renovation, breathing new life into the property while retaining its many historic finishes. The ~5,000 square foot property is currently configured into three distinct spaces-a cafe, an office and a residence. The Cafe, fronting on Pitt Street, has its own /electric/water meters and was previously approved to serve beer, wine and food with sidewalk seating. The Office, accessible from Montagu Street, is the second commercial space, and currently is an office with an upscale kitchenette, an open work space anchored by two fireplaces, double archways, a dedicated conference room, a butler's pantry and an ADA-compliant restroom that is plumbed for a shower. If desired, this space could easily be converted back into the primary residence. The office space connects to a private backyard through a pair of french doors. The Residence occupies the upper two floors of the building. The expertly designed space was thoughtfully renovated and restored with carefully curated finishes and preserved historic details such as original moldings, plaster, original hardwood floors, fireplaces, and large windows. The formal living room or parlor is a particularly grand space with high ceilings and gorgeous original crown plaster molding and central medallion (currently being restored). The high ceilings continue into the stairwell where a second plaster medallion adorns the space and into the modern kitchen where the cabinetry was designed by AD 100 listed architecture and interiors firm, Workstead. The kitchen features Pietra Cardosa countertops, a La Cornue range, and an elegant gooseneck bridge faucet by Catchpole and Rye. The second floor piazza is the ideal spot to enjoy beautiful Charleston weather with its exceptionally deep proportions allowing ample room for a sitting area and large dining table that can comfortably seat as many as 16 people. Open the original gib doors to create an open air feel between the Piazza and Parlor. The house boasts 9 fireplaces in total, 6 of them located in the Residence. The deep windows throughout the house are a feature of the thick masonry walls. A sitting room with a fireplace just off the kitchen functions as a casual place to gather or can act as an additional bedroom. The guest bedroom, with a fireplace and 4 large windows, is also found on this floor along with a full bath and laundry with a long view out to the piazza. The entire top floor is perched above the roofline and is configured as the primary suite featuring a large bedroom with great natural light and a spacious bathroom with dual vanities designed by Workstead, a Cle tile shower and original clawfoot bathtub. The central floating element was crafted entirely of white oak and designed by the owners to elegantly disguise storage, the toilet and shower. There is also an L shaped driveway, accessible from both Pitt and Montagu Streets, which offers ample off-street parking. The location is ideal. The home is footsteps from the bustling College of Charleston campus and within walking distance of King Street, shops, restaurants and more.
