Sitting in the heart of downtown Charleston, 161 Tradd Street offers a fully restored interior, modern touches and a great South of Broad location.
Spacious & Updated Interior
The historic home was built in 1870 and has been restored and updated throughout the subsequent years. A traditional floor plan on the first floor alludes to the home’s history with a central hallway, a formal living room and a formal dining room. Each of these rooms boasts tall ceilings, rich hardwood floors and original fireplaces. The rear of the home combines a living space with the kitchen to create a large room for everyday living or entertaining. This spacious area features nice details such as hardwood floors, wainscoting, a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, a center island for seating and neutral cabinets and backsplash. French glass doors open to the private backyard patio and there is also an elegantly styled powder room.
A private staircase from the living area and kitchen leads into the second floor master suite. The large bedroom features tall ceilings, bright windows and hardwood floors along with a walk-in closet and shoe closet. There is also an en suite bath and laundry closet. The remaining two bedrooms are well-sized and have access to a hallway full bath which has been modernized with a subway tiled tub/shower and contemporary fixtures.
Outdoor Living Spaces
In addition to the alluring interior features, there is also much to see outside. In true Charleston single fashion, the home has two large covered porches which provide ideal locations to enjoy a glass of wine or the sights and sounds of the city. The backyard is extremely private with a vine-covered privacy wall and fence. Lush and colorful landscaping adds character, while the large grassy area is perfect for those with children or pets. A large brick patio anchors the space, complete with a fire pit for cool fall and winter evenings. There is also a gated brick driveway which provides ideal off-street parking for several vehicles.
The home’s downtown location cannot be beat. Nestled in the iconic South of Broad neighborhood, the property is within easy walking distance of Colonial Lake, White Point Gardens and other area parks. Local shops, restaurants and galleries along Broad and East Bay Streets are also within walking distance, while other areas of the peninsula including Upper King Street are accessible by bike.
