318 King Street: Updated Historic Old Village Home
Nestled in the heart of Mount Pleasant’s coveted Old Village, 318 King Street is the perfect mix of historical charm and contemporary updates. Pulling up to the home, you will instantly be swept up in its quintessential Southern charm. Poking out from behind mature trees and a landscaped front yard is the cottage-style Old Village home. A metal roof adds to the aesthetic as does the expansive front porch overlooking the quiet, residential King Street. You can almost pictures yourself rocking away and enjoying a glass of sweet tea! Journeying to the backyard, you will fall in love with the elegant in-ground pool. The pool’s dark bottom and surrounding lush landscaping provide a luxurious feel and an elegant brick and blue stone deck provides a great place to relax and enjoy the views.
Inside, 318 King Street’s floor plan has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of the space. Opening from the porch are the living room and study–which serve as great formal entertaining spaces and could easily be transformed for whatever purpose you desire. The den and kitchen are the real hub of the home and have been designed with today’s buyer in mind. The kitchen has great natural light and boasts stainless steel appliances, an ample breakfast nook and a colorful glass tile backsplash to add warmth and character to the space. Dark hardwood floors extend from the kitchen into the adjacent den for a cohesive look and built-in bookshelves, a wood-burning fireplace and abundant windows make this room a great place to gather.
Also downstairs are two of the home’s bedrooms. They share a Jack and Jill style full bath which capitalizes on the home’s history with a striking soaking tub, pedestal sink and a separate shower. The master bedroom suite is located on the second floor. A large bedroom and en suite bathroom (with separate jetted tub and shower) complete the suite. Since it is the only room on the second floor, it feels like a true retreat! Another bonus of the home is the additional living spaces on the ground floor. A mother-in-law suite (with a fireplace, efficiency kitchen and full bath) provides a private retreat for guests and there is also additional finished space which is currently being used a media/game room.
