Mount Pleasant’s Old Village neighborhood is one of the most sought after areas to call home. Bordered by Shem Creek, Coleman Boulevard and the Charleston Harbor, the neighborhood epitomizes Lowcountry living with historic homes, tree lined streets, local parks and shops. Within walking distance, you’ll find Alhambra Hall, Pitt Street shops, the Old Pitt Street Bridge, the weekly farmers market and more. It is also extremely close to downtown Charleston (11 minutes) and Sullivan’s Island beaches (8 minutes).
813 Pitt Street was originally built in 1946 but it has been recently updated by the owner. The floor plan is bright and inviting. A gas fireplace and built-in bookshelves accent the living room which serves as the main gathering place in the home. Opening from the living room is a large screened porch. The outdoor room overlooks the backyard and has a ceiling fan to keep it cooler during the warmer summer months. The kitchen has been fully updated with all of the finishes you are looking for including a mahogany topped center island, high-end stainless appliances, marble counters, subway tile backsplash and custom cabinets. There is a large room adjoining the kitchen, currently being used as a dining area, but it could be easily used as an additional living space. There is also a study on the first floor, complete with a fireplace and built-in desk.
The light-filled master suite is also located on the first floor with views of Pitt Street. Hardwood floors, tall ceilings, and a fireplace accent the bedroom, while the newly renovated en suite bath has luxurious finishes including a claw foot soaking tub, tiled shower, pedestal sink and marble-topped make-up vanity. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms, a landing and a contemporary full bath with a tiled tub/shower, penny tile flooring and marble-topped vanity.
Another nice feature is the home’s large, 0.41 acre lot. The home is set back from the street so you have a large front yard with tall trees. There is a large out-building, complete with a red metal roof, wrap-around covered porch and outdoor grilling area. The building is unfinished but serves as a perfect space for storage or a workshop. Lush landscaping, mature trees and flagstone pathways wind throughout the yard, creating a truly nice space.
