Nestled on the upper Charleston peninsula, this classic downtown Charleston home at 64 Alberta Ave was designed to resemble historic homes but was built in 2005 so it has all the modern conveniences you desire. The tree-lined street exudes curb appeal and a full front porch beckons to be used. Colorful, mature landscaping adds to its appeal and there is a generous yard which is rare for this urban neighborhood.
Inside, the home has an open floor plan which encompasses over 1,700 square feet on the first and second floors. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors add warmth to the living spaces and other details such as two-piece crown molding, granite kitchen counters, stainless steel appliances and tall ceilings add a touch of understated elegance. Designed for entertaining, the floor plan has an incredibly open feel with the living room, dining area and kitchen combined into one cohesive space. In the back of the home is the downstairs master suite. A wall of windows overlooks the private backyard, showering the room with great natural light. An en suite bath and walk-in closet are two desirable features and there is a private screened porch and small adjacent deck off of the suite.
The home’s two remaining bedrooms are located upstairs along with a retro-inspired bathroom with black and white tile flooring. In addition to the front porch and back deck, there is also a compact yet efficient backyard that is completely fenced in for privacy. A community alley backs up to the home and provides off-street parking for additional vehicles.
The Longborough neighborhood is an extremely popular community in downtown Charleston. It was developed in the early 2000’s and sits along the Ashley River. A community crabbing dock is located within the neighborhood and nearby Hampton Park, popular for its open spaces and gardens and playgrounds, is just a short walk. The neighborhood also adjoins the Wagener Terrace area of the peninsula which is fast becoming a popular destination for local eateries such as Rutledge Cab Company, Park Cafe and others.
