As you pull up to 711 W Carolina Avenue, you will instantly fall in love with the historic charm and rich architecture of this Summerville home. The Queen Ann-style home was originally built in 1884 and has been lovingly maintained and restored in the subsequent centuries. Its striking facade is accented by a brick pathway and a wrap-around front porch which provides the perfect spot to look out over the maturely landscaped front lawn.
Inside, a small entryway leads into the grand foyer. Beautiful hardwood floors, detailed moldings and a hand-carved fireplace are historic touches that have been masterfully restored. Beyond the foyer are the formal living room, dining room and playroom which retain their period charm and provide additional spaces to gather with friends and family. The contemporary, gourmet kitchen has undergone a complete renovation and blends well with the rest of the home. Granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a sunny breakfast nook and glass-front cabinets enhance the space and the green tile backsplash adds a pop of color.
The master bedroom, located downstairs, is a true retreat. Hardwood floors and bright windows define the bedroom and there are two walk-in closets. The en suite master bath is well-appointed with a jetted tub and a separate shower. There is also a door to the playroom which can be used as a seating area for the master. The home’s other two bedrooms are located upstairs. Both have hardwood floors and they share access to a full bath in the hall.
In addition to the beautiful interior, there is also much to enjoy outside. Extending from the playroom is a screened porch which opens to a large deck–perfect for grilling. The backyard is fenced for privacy and its colorful landscaping creates a lush oasis. The best part of the yard is the private, kidney shaped in-ground pool–the ideal spot for spending summers. A custom gazebo and entry trellis using the sunburst motif are other items that add character to the backyard.
