This charming Old Village cottage at 212 Freeman Street exudes curb appeal. Mature landscaping and tall trees provide a lush canopy, with a brick pathway leading to the expansive covered porch. A red roof adds to the aesthetic of the home and the white exterior is accented with black shutters.
Inside, the home has a traditional floor plan. Preserved historic details such as wide-plank heart pine floors, dentil crown molding, and original fireplaces add to the home’s character. The formal dining area is well-sized with a floor to ceiling wall of built-in bookshelves. It is completely open to the kitchen, which has been updated with marble counters, a breakfast bar, built-in wine storage, stainless appliances and other nice touches. It opens to the living room, which has large windows to flood the space with natural light.
The home’s master bedroom suite encompasses the entire second floor. The room is divided by the staircase into two sections–the bedroom and a sitting room. A claw foot soaking tub, dual vanities, exposed brick and a frameless glass shower with river rock walls and floor elevate the en suite bathroom’s style. Two guest bedrooms are located downstairs.
Another highlight is the home’s outdoor living spaces. The courtyard is fully fenced with a screened gardening area, brick patio and fire pit. The rear screened porch is perfect for hosting a party or meal al fresco. The large space is equipped with a ceiling fan for warmer evenings and there is also built-in bench for plentiful seating. A one-car detached garage provides off-street parking and there is also a finished room above the garage.
In addition, the location is highly desirable. Within walking distance are popular Old Village landmarks including Shem Creek, Pitt Street Bridge, Alhambra Hall and more. Neighborhood shops and restaurants are also within biking distance, while the area beaches and downtown Charleston are just a short drive.
