250 W Poplar Street in Wagener Terrace
Located in the heart of Wagener Terrace is 250 W. Poplar Street. A charming Charleston cottage, it was completely renovated and offers buyers modern amenities mixed with historical charm. The exterior of the home exudes curb appeal with an expertly landscaped front yard, colorful siding and striking shutters.
Poplar Street is a quiet, tree-lined street that is filled with a mix of young families and residents who have lived in the neighborhood for years. Wagener Terrace is best defined by its its proximity to downtown Charleston but it is a true residential community, comprised mainly of single family homes with spacious front and backyards. You still have all the convenience of living downtown without the hustle and bustle of an urban lifestyle. 250 W. Poplar Street is located in a quiet section of Wagener Terrace and W. Poplar Street is not a through street. Just a few steps from your front door, you can be at the Longborough Crabing Dock, Ashley River, Hampton Park or the newly updated Corinne Jones playground. Another bonus to this area is the renovated James Simons Montessori School which is set to open this fall!
The home has an inviting floor plan that makes the most of the space. The two guest bedrooms are located on one side of the home, separated from the master suite by the living room. This set-up allows parents to keep an eye on their children but also provides them with the peace and privacy they desire. The elegant, light-filled master suite was added during the 2008 renovations and is a rare find in a home of this age. In addition to a spacious bedroom, there is also a walk-in closet and a spa-like master bathroom with limestone flooring, a frameless shower and beautiful recycled glass tile backsplash and shower.
250 W. Poplar Street has several spaces that are great for entertaining including a formal living room, small library, and a beautiful kitchen. The kitchen is the true hub of the home and was bumped out during the renovations. The large space has a breakfast bar for casual meals but also has an eat-in area that is sizeable enough for a formal dining room table. Custom cabinets, cork flooring, colorful Italian tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and granite counters are some of the highlights.
While much of the house was updated, several historical touches still remain lending character and charm to the home. Hardwood floors, period hardware and penny tile flooring in the guest bath are some of the many remaining original touches. Storage is always a premium in historic homes, but the owners have solved this conundrum but placing carefully concealed storage throughout the home including extra-deep kitchen cabinets, a walk-in master closet and a built-in wall storage unit outside of the guest bedrooms.
Accessible from the kitchen is the spacious backyard. Fenced in for privacy, it is a great space for those with pets or young children. An irrigation system was installed to help keep the grass green year round and there is also mature landscaping including palm trees, bamboo and other shrubs. The deck is a great space for hosting family and friends and there is also a sunshade to make the space more enjoyable in the heat of the summer. An artist’s studio (complete with electricity) and a custom playhouse complete the backyard.
