This handsome 1857 Italianate style home marks a new era in modern preservation. Two years ago, 1 Water Street became the first historic brick property in Charleston to be elevated eight feet off the ground. The foundation was engineered to the highest level by Morris Construction, offering the next owners' confidence and peace of mind in its forward-thinking design. After Charleston's most recent storm, the interior and mechanicals of the home were securely protected from flood risk and the remainder of the property required minimal cleanup. Its structure also provides the added benefit of lowered insurance costs.
Supplements: 1 Water Street is set in the most desirable location in Charleston - just steps away from the harbor and all the charm of the city's most notable architecture. Built with a side-hall entryway the home has expansive double-gallery rooms opening onto the western piazzas, perfect for entertaining and gatherings. The rear of the home features a gourmet kitchen that opens into the comfortable family room with a back porch. On the second floor you will find the expansive primary suite complete with a spacious walk-in closet, sprawling bathroom and glimpses of the harbor. A generous guest bedroom faces Water Street and is complete with an en suite bath and custom closet. There are two additional bedrooms on the third floor with beautiful city rooftop views.
Looking off the side piazzas you will see the two-car driveway and beautifully landscaped garden designed by Glen Gardner. Venture beneath the home where you will find room to store your golf cart and install a future elevator should one need it. Complete with historic details, and built to last, this property is waiting for its next owners to call it home.
