From the moment you enter the popular pink doors of the ''Charleston Queen'', you are warmly welcomed into this gracious residence which features 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4 piazza's, and newly added backyard oasis. This replica Charleston single home was designed by renowned classical architects Bevan & Liberatos with no detail spared to ensure you are transcended back in time - from 10' ceilings, intricate millwork, stucco walls painted in Farrow & Ball hues, rough-sewn hardwood flooring to extensive brass hardware, beautiful French doors and floor to ceiling windows.The 1st floor is an entertainer's dream. The bright, one-of-a-kind kitchen features a restored vintage O'Keefe & Merritt range with 6 burners and 4 ovens paired with lacquered cabinets, oversized Viking refrigerator and dining room that spills into a piazza with gas lanterns. After dinner, retreat to the elegant front parlor for conversation by the fireplace or withdraw to the back family den to cozy up after a long day. This floor also provides a generous flex space which includes an office, swanky bar, laundry and mudroom. The 2nd floor boasts 3 gorgeous bedrooms, each with large closets and French doors to private piazza's with sunset views. The spacious Primary Suite features an independent dressing room and large bathroom with custom vanity, clawfoot tub, and separate shower. An additional 800sf was recently added to the top floor which offers 2 guest bedrooms, full bath with a dramatic arch window framing beautiful Charleston skyline views, and a gathering area with beverage center to soak up this special spot. Watch the horse & carriages walk by from a breezy piazza or lounge in the private backyard to listen to church bells and the water fountain trickle in the flower garden. The fully-fenced yard with landscape lighting offers dining, living, lawn and garden areas centered around a classic stone water fountain. The gated, private driveway has ample room for 2 cars as well as covered golf-cart parking. The home is a fortress with CBS construction on all 4 floors and built well above grade, providing an entire street level footprint underneath for additional storage, flex space, and workshop. Conveniently located near charming Colonial Lake, the shops on King Street, and many of Charleston's finest dining establishments. This unique home delivers the charm and character of an old Charleston single with the comforts of a new build. This distinct residence is a must see.
