Meghan Webster’s listing at 15 Francis Street is a charming, single-family, Victorian home located in downtown Charleston’s emerging North Central neighborhood. The home was built in the 1890’s but has been well-kept and subtly updated ever since. Inside, original features still remain such as wide plank hardwood floors, original picture windows and multiple fireplaces—lending a sense of historic character and charm to the space.
The home has many living spaces which make it a great home for young families or those who like to entertain. Some of the highlighted spaces include:
- A light-filled formal living room with a fireplace
- A formal dining room with a fireplace and views of the living room and foyer
- A fully renovated kitchen with tile flooring, stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting, granite counters and a large, informal dining area. There is also access to the back deck.
- An additional seating area (with a fireplace) on the second floor landing
15 Francis Street has three bedrooms. The master bedroom, the largest of the three, has beautiful hardwood floors, dual closets and access to a private, second-story piazza overlooking the side yard. There are also three full baths—including one with a period claw foot tub and another on the first floor of the home.
The backyard at 15 Francis Street has been professionally landscaped with lush vegetation to provide lots of privacy. A large deck opens from the kitchen to extend the living space and there is also a stone patio in the yard which is used as an additional dining space. There is also a full front porch and a private piazza off of the master bedroom. Another great feature is its downtown Charleston location. It sits just a block over from Hampton Park and popular Upper King Street restaurants and shops are well within walking or biking distance from the home.
