2 Larnes Street: Downtown Charleston Cottage
Located in downtown Charleston’s Westside neighborhood, 2 Larnes Street is a charming, historic home located in an up and coming area of the historic peninsula. Built in the 1930’s as a freedman’s cottage, the home still has many of its original features intact including hardwood floors, breadboard throughout the walls and ceilings, and a double sided fireplace. The home’s layout includes two bedrooms as well as a full bath which has an original claw foot tub. The cozy living room adjoins the compact kitchen to create a cohesive flow. In addition to these features found inside, 2 Larnes Street also has a fenced yard as well as a front porch and back screened porch which provide great places to relax and enjoy the mild Charleston weather.
The home sits on Larnes Street, which is found between the main streets of Ashley and Rutledge Aves just north of the Crosstown. This emerging area has seen a host of home renovations and new businesses in the past few years and it is becoming popular with young professionals due to its affordability and close proximity to the renowned restaurants and nightlife. Local restaurants such as Moe’s Crosstown and the newly opened Lee Lee’s Hot Kitchen are less than a mile away while the bars and restaurants on Upper King Street are just a fifteen minute walk. Nearby Hampton Park is also a popular spot with locals known for its manicured grounds, stunning gardens and walking paths.
A home like this doesn’t come on the market often and provides you with a great opportunity to live downtown at an affordable price point. The area is transforming and its close proximity to local bars and restaurants is another attraction. Be sure to contact listing agent Anna Gruenloh for more information or to schedule a showing.
