4 BATTERY PLACE | South of Broad
Footsteps from the Charleston Harbor, 4 Battery Place is the quintessential South of Broad residence. The 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath town home has been extensively updated by the current owners and offers a contemporary and sophisticated interior with captivating outdoor living spaces. The location is also ideal. Within walking distance are some of the city’s best restaurants, shops and galleries, along with beautiful parks including White Point Garden, Waterfront Park and Colonial Lake Park. The home has also been featured in Charleston Magazine.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, 4 Battery Place exudes curb appeal with expert landscaping and a classic facade accented by colorful shutters and a second-story balcony. The driveway offers dedicated parking for two cars and features new brickwork and custom lighting. A mahogany door with iron detailing leads you into the home’s private courtyard–a great space to relax or entertain. The space is further enhanced by mature landscaping and ivy-covered walls, with landscape lighting illuminating it all come nightfall. Blue stone floors and a softly bubbling fountain bring beauty and peace to the area. The professional designs of landscape architect Glen Gardner and Moonlighting Landscape Lighting, together with custom-crafted stucco and wood bench seating, and a permanently-installed Tucci umbrella, complete the spectacular outdoor vista.
Upon entering this home, with its contemporary interior professionally designed by Cortney Bishop, you will notice the attention paid to every detail. A neutral palette is found throughout the entire house, along with heart pine floors, custom chair rail, crown moldings, tall ceilings and great natural light. The spacious living room serves as a central gathering and entertaining space and is anchored by a new gas fireplace by WilliamSmith and built-in bookshelves. The first-floor hallway runs the full length of the home and features multiple sets of French doors which open to the courtyard, giving all of the adjacent rooms a light and airy feel.
The kitchen has been completely updated and features sleek quartz countertops, custom cabinets by Eurocraft, high-end commercial-grade stainless appliances (Miele, Sub-Zero, Dacor), custom glass tile backsplash and unique lighting fixtures. The adjoining dining area has a two-story vaulted ceiling, a second WiliamSmith gas fireplace with custom surround by Michael Lauer Studio, built-in bookshelves, a concrete table with seating for eight, and a custom, upholstered dining banquette with hidden storage. The kitchen and dining spaces also open up to the courtyard to provide great flow for indoor and outdoor dining. In addition to a mudroom with custom cabinetry, there is a fully renovated and expanded powder room on the first floor which features polished nickel fixtures, custom cabinetry and a marble vanity.
The home has four bedrooms, spread over three floors. The master bedroom suite is located on the second floor, with private access to the balcony offering glimpses of the Charleston Harbor. There is also an en suite bath with a marble soaking tub and shower, marble topped vanity with two sinks and chrome finishes. Also on the second floor is a guest bedroom suite with great natural light and an en suite full bath with a marble shower and dual-sink vanity. The third floor has an additional guest bedroom suite and a lofted living space which is currently being used as a media and music room. The final bedroom, presently being enjoyed as a den and reading hideaway, is located on the first floor of the home, adjacent to the powder room and guest closet. It features custom cabinetry by Eurocraft, a third WilliamSmith gas fireplace, and a separate french door entry. Additional design features of note include custom furniture, lighting, and window treatments throughout, as well as custom paints by Farrow and Ball.
