401 Patjens Lane: Updated Old Village Home
401 Patjens Lane sits on a quiet cul de sac in the heart of the Old Village near the corner of Whilden and Hibben Streets. Its prime location allows you to enjoy the amenities that the Old Village offers—including tree-lined streets, local shops and renowned restaurants, churches and neighborhood sites such as Alhambra Hall and the Old Pitt Street Bridge. The neighborhood abuts the Charleston Harbor so you can also take advantage of the beautiful waterfront vistas and views of the historic Charleston skyline on an evening stroll. There is a great sense of community in the Old Village and community events such as the Farmers Market at Moultrie Middle School during the warmer months are great ways to get to know your neighbors.
While 401 Patjens Lane was built in the 70’s, its interior has been updated to keep the character alive while making it livable for today’s buyer. Wood-beamed ceilings in the common living spaces, wide plank hardwood floors and detailed doors add charm to the home while subtle finishes such as recessed lighting and stainless steel appliance give it an understated contemporary flare. The first floor of the home has an incredibly open layout. A large great room with an oversized fireplace serves as the home’s main gathering place and is completely open to the formal dining area. The kitchen is also part of this space and has been modernized with stainless steel appliances, butcher block counters and a center island for additional prep space and storage. Also on the first floor is a fifth bedroom, currently being used as a kid’s play room. It has a beautiful French door opening out to the screened porch as well as shared access to a full bathroom.
The second floor is home to three additional bedrooms. The guest bedrooms are well-sized and share a hallway full bathroom which has been updated with tile flooring and contemporary fixtures. The master bedroom has beautiful hardwood floors as well as a wood-beamed ceiling and fireplace. The laundry is found in the walk-in closet which is super convenient and there is also an en suite bathroom with dual vanities and a shower.
Since the home is elevated construction, there is space on the ground floor and part of this has been converted into a guest apartment. Accessible from either the kitchen or the backyard, it can be as private as you’d like or made to feel like part of the home. Hardwood floors, exposed brick and a fireplace add charm to the room and there is space for both a bedroom and a seating area. An efficiency kitchen and full bathroom make it completely self-sufficient.
Outdoor Living Spaces
In addition to the attractive features inside, it also has a few outdoor living spaces which it make it even more appealing. The home is located on a small cul de sac shared with only a few other homes so it is pretty private. The yard (front and back) is completely fenced in and there is low maintenance landscaping which enhances its aesthetic. A full front porch looks out over the front yard and has dual ceiling fans to keep it enjoyable in the warmer months. A screened porch extends from the fifth bedroom and there is a covered area on the ground floor which could be used for parking or boat storage.
