Cater Rowson’s listing at 2 Talon Court is located in the heart of downtown Charleston’s bustling Radcliffeborough neighborhood. But the beauty of this home is that it is situated on a quiet, residential courtyard that only has a handful of other homes so it has the quiet, residential feel you desire despite being in the heart of the city. The home was originally built as staff housing for the neighboring Ashley Hall School and historic touches such as original hardwood floors and detailed wood-paneled walls still remain. Subsequent owners have completed several updates such as creating a master bedroom suite and extending the kitchen to make it appealing for today’s buyer.
The home has is surrounded by a quaint picket fence which helps to define the outdoor living spaces. A sizable deck extends from the kitchen and serves as a great place to enjoy the warm Charleston weather. Since the yard is fenced, it is great for those with children and the current owners have even created a play area for their children. A dedicated parking spot comes with the home and there is also an additional small parcel of land just beyond the fenced (included with the sale) which could be a perfect area for a hobby gardener.
Inside, the first floor of the home has abundant living spaces including a light-filled kitchen, a formal dining area and a sitting room (currently being used a kid’s play room). The family room is a great place to gather with friends and family and its wood-burning fireplace is perfect for the occasional chilly night.
The home’s three bedrooms are located upstairs. Two well-sized guest rooms share an updated hall bathroom while the large master bedroom has its own en suite bathroom as well as a walk-in closet and large laundry room.
In addition to all these great features, the true appeal is its location. Just outside your front door are some of downtown Charleston‘s most historic streets and area parks and restaurants along Upper King Street are well within walking distance. Other parts f the peninsula, such as The Battery and White Point Gardens, are easily accessible by bike making this a perfect home for those wanting to live an urban lifestyle with the creature comforts usually found in a more suburban setting.
