Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, this elegantly appointed condo in the Fort Sumter House overlooks the Charleston Harbor. 1 King Street #105 sits in the South of Broad neighborhood, one of the most coveted areas on the peninsula. Just beyond the front door are The Battery, White Pointe Gardens, Waterfront Park and other picturesque local parks. Quaint boutiques, art galleries and world-renowned restaurants are clustered along Broad and East Bay Streets and are well within walking distance of the condo. The architecture in the neighborhood is also stunning, with expertly preserved homes that showcase Charleston’s storied history.
Unlike many condos in the building, 1 King Street #105 has a private entrance off of Murray Boulevard. The condo is located on the first floor, with tall ceilings, great natural light and floor to ceiling windows looking overlooking the water. The first floor is incredibly open, with the living area, dining room and kitchen combined into one cohesive space–a great setup for entertaining or everyday living. The kitchen is well-appointed with plenty of cabinet and counter top space, a large pantry and an appliance garage. Original terrazzo floors are found in all of the downstairs rooms–a nice nod to the building’s history.
The master bedroom suite is also located on the first floor, along with a powder room and harbor-facing sitting room. The master bedroom is well-sized and has an elegantly appointed en suite bath which has been updated with marble counters and marble tiles in both the tub and separate shower. On the lofted level, you will find three additional bedrooms–each with their own en suite bath. The central hallway is open to the living spaces below, giving the space a light-filled and open feel.
Another bonus of the condo is its private, outdoor living space. A large covered veranda looks towards the harbor and provides a perfect spot to watch the sunset while enjoying a glass of wine. The building itself also has some attractive amenities including a pool, off-street parking and 24 hour security.
