57 GIBBES STREET: South of Broad
Nestled in the coveted South of Broad neighborhood on the historic Charleston peninsula, 57 Gibbes Street offers a traditional floor plan with a fully updated interior and beautiful outdoor living spaces. The home was built in 1917 and has been thoughtfully renovated by the current owners, while preserving its unique historic finishes. The home has a great location–just minutes from the Charleston Harbor and walking distance to parks, galleries, shops, restaurants and more.
The property exudes curb appeal with a brick pathway leading up to the full front porch. Ivy-covered stairs, mature lanscaping and a colorful Crate Myrtle tree add to its appeal. Inside, the 3,314 square foot home has a traditional floor plan with formal living and dining rooms. Hardwood floors, tall ceilings, an original fireplace and detailed moldings are among the many notable features. The eat-in kitchen and adjoining family room are the heart of the house and the expertly designed spaces are perfect for both everyday living and entertaining. A marble backsplash, custom white cabinets, marble counters, a center island and high-end stainless appliances (including Wolf) enhance the designer kitchen, while the family room is the perfect place to unwind with built-in cabinets and a wet bar with a wine fridge, ice maker and sink. A mudroom, with built-in lockers and a desk, is located off of the breakfast room in the kitchen.
The home has a total of five bedrooms. There is one guest bedroom on the first floor, which has access to a fully updated bathroom featuring tile floors, a custom wooden vanity and a tiled tub/shower. The expansive master bedroom suite is located on the second floor. The private retreat features a bedroom space with built-in closets, an office with a built-in bookshelf, and an elegantly appointed en suite bath with a soaking tub, dual marble-topped vanities, a large tiled shower and top-of-the-line fixtures. There is a guest bedroom suite on this floor, which features a renovated en suite bath, along with two other bedrooms and a second updated full hallway bathroom.
Outdoor Living Spaces
In addition to the wonderful interior features, this home also offers great outdoor living spaces. The full front porch overlooks quiet Gibbes Street and the backyard is a truly private escape. A tall fence encloses the space, while lush landscaping adds to its appeal along with a large courtyard. Wooden French doors open from the living room to the screened porch, a great place to read or relax with a glass of wine. There is also a large deck, accessible from either the screened porch or the kitchen, which is used as an outdoor dining room and grilling area. Since the home is elevated, there is plenty of storage room on the ground floor and there are also two driveways which is great for off-street parking.
