224 Gordon Street: Renovated Wagener Terrace Cottage
Located on the upper peninsula of downtown Charleston, Wagener Terrace is a friendly community that has been growing in popularity over the years. While still located downtown, this area offers a more residential feel with larger lots, local parks and 1900’s-style homes. The historic area of downtown Charleston is still well within biking distance but local spots such as Moe’s Crosstown and Rutledge Cab Company provide alternatives to venturing out of the neighborhood.
Carter Rowson’s new listing at 224 Gordon Street is located in the heart of Wagener Terrace. Historic Lowndes Grove Plantation, a historic home and popular spot for weddings, is located at the end of the block as is a community crabbing dock that extends into the Ashley River and offers breathtaking vistas of the marsh and river. The Charleston-cottage style home was recently renovated so it has many of the features you are looking for including large living spaces, a master suite and a contemporary kitchen. A sunny-yellow exterior is complemented by a bright red door and low-maintenance landscaping.
Upon entering the home, you will be greeted by the light-filled living room. Period hardwood floors and a decorative fireplace add a cozy feel to the space and the adjoining formal dining room is a great place to gather with friends and family. At the back of the home is the completely remodeled kitchen which serves as the central hub. Rich maple cabinets add warmth to the space while stainless steel appliances provide you with all that you need to whip up a gourmet meal. Tile flooring, ample counter space, recessed lighting and a center island are some of the other features that you will notice.
Two of the home’s bedrooms are located on the first floor and share a full hall bathroom with retro penny tile flooring. The master suite encompasses the entire second floor of the home and is a truly private retreat. The renovated room was designed to make the most of the space and helpful features like window seats and built-in dressers save space while adding to the bedroom’s appeal. An enormous en suite bathroom adjoins the bedroom. Bright natural light and a neutral color palette make this space seem incredibly large and features such as tile flooring, dual sinks and contemporary fixtures add elegance.
224 Gordon Street also has a compact backyard that has been fenced in–an added bonus for those with kids or pets. Extending from the kitchen is a sizable deck which provides the perfect spot for enjoying meals outdoors or grilling in the summer. Nearby Hampton Park is also a great spot for a picnic, jog or afternoon stroll.
With a prime Wagener Terrace location and renovated interior, this home is a great fit for many prospective buyers who want to enjoy the convenience of the downtown Charleston lifestyle. For more information on 224 Gordon Street, contact listing agent Carter Rowson.
