16 Carolina Street: New Construction Home in Downtown Charleston
If you’re looking for a downtown Charleston home without the upkeep of an older home, take a look at Melissa Martin’s listing at 16 Carolina Street. Located in the up and coming Westside neighborhood, this charming home was built in 2010 but matches the aesthetic and feel of the older homes in the neighborhood. It exudes curb appeal with colorful siding and double piazzas which beg to be enjoyed!
The home was built to be incredibly efficient and meets the EarthCraft and Energy Star building certification standards. An open floor plan is packed with high-end features including:
- Heart pine floors throughout the entire home
- Italian tile floors in the baths
- Detailed trim work
- 9+ foot ceilings on the first floor
- An on-demand Renai hot water heater
- And a Trane purification system, to name a few
Upon entering the home, you will be greeted by a light-filled foyer. Extending from there is the home’s open living space which incorporates the living room, dining area and kitchen into one, sunny space which is perfect for those who like to entertain. The kitchen serves as the hallmark of this area with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, brushed nickel fixtures, a walk-in pantry and a center island with seating for four.
The home’s three bedrooms are located on the second floor. The sun-soaked master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a beautifully tiled shower and contemporary granite-topped vanity but the best feature of the suite is its private access to the second story piazza. Looking out over Carolina Street, this private retreat is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or curl up with your favorite book while enjoy the warm weather and sounds of the city. The other two bedrooms are well-sized and there is a second full bath on this level.
Another attractive feature of the home is its location in downtown Charleston. Just one block over from Upper King Street, you can easily walk to the trendy restaurants, bars and shops that populate this commercial street. Area parks are also nearby including Hampton Park and Marion Square Park.
