This charming two bedroom home at 2 Larnes Street, originally built in 1930, is perfect for anyone wishing the live in downtown Charleston. This lovely white house with red accents and a metal roof boasts one of the side porches for which Charleston is famous, which is a great place to sit and drink a cold glass of iced tea and chat with friends or family.
The interior has a two-sided brick fireplace with an air of historical charm. The floors are a warm hardwood and light-colored walls and windows bring plenty of natural light into the space. The kitchen has red accents that mirror those on the exterior of the home, and the bathroom has a retro claw foot bathtub. The house also has a covered screened porch large enough for a table and is a great space for outdoor meals and entertaining, complete with a ceiling fan for those hot Charleston summer days.
Barely north of the Crosstown, this cottage at 2 Larnes Street has access to all the luxuries of living in downtown Charleston without the hassle of parking and also has easy access to the Ravenel Bridge and the Mount Pleasant area. The Westside location is quickly becoming increasingly popular, especially with young professionals, as it is only a 15 minute walk, and an even shorter bike ride, from the bars and restaurants of upper King Street. It is also less than a mile from other favorite local restaurants such as Moe’s Crosstown Tavern, Five Loaves Café, and D’Allesandro’s Pizza. It is also less than a mile from Hampton Park, the largest park on the peninsula at 60 acres. The historic market, museums, shops, and waterfront park at the tip of the peninsula are all less than three miles away. This property is a rare opportunity to live in a charming home amid all that downtown Charleston has to offer at an affordable price point.
