Nestled along the Ashley River, Wagener Terrace is an established neighborhood in downtown Charleston. Many of the homes were built between the 1920’s and 1940’s with subsequential updates so they still hold appeal for today’s buyers. The neighborhood itself is located north of the historic downtown peninsula, but popular spots such as King Street and Marion Square Park are still accessible via a short bike ride. Hampton Park, one of the City of Charleston’s largest parks, borders the neighborhood and provides an ideal place to enjoy Charleston’s beautiful gardens and outdoor space. Newer restaurants such as Rutledge Cab Company and Park Cafe exude a local, neighborhood vibe but are popular enough to draw people from all parts of the greater Charleston area.
If this neighborhood sounds like an ideal place to call home, consider Elizabeth Dickinson’s listing at 147 Gordon Street. Located in the heart of Wagener Terrace, this duplex was built in the 1940’s but was completely renovated in 2005 with new plumbing, electric, windows, HVAC and roof. The duplex has two distinct units, including:
- Unit A: This is the first floor unit. Upon entering, you will be greeted by the open living room and dining area. Recently replaced hardwood floors run throughout most of the unit and the kitchen has been updated with an electric oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. Two well-sized bedrooms along with a third bedroom (or flex space) and a full bath complete the space.
- Unit B: Located on the second floor, this unit has an open plan with the living room, dining area and kitchen combined into one cohesive space. A center island has a gas range/oven and there is also a dishwasher and refrigerator. Three well-sized bedrooms, a powder room and an additional room with a tub/shower complete the space. The bedrooms and living spaces have hardwood floors and the kitchen and baths are tiled.
The units are completely self-sufficient and share a large, mostly-fenced in backyard with a giant live oak tree. Off-street parking can accommodate multiple cars which is another bonus. This unique home would be ideal for someone looking for an investment property. Keep one unit as your primary residence and rent the other; or rent both. The location holds lots of appeal–walking distance to the Citadel and close to CofC, MUSC & Charleston School of Law. To learn more or set up a showing, contact listing agent Elizabeth Dickinson.
