This historic Charleston home in Harleston Village exudes charm. It’s located at 8 Gadsden Street which has a really nice location – quiet yet close to the Ashley River and Colonial Lake. The home is just blocks from Upper King street and East Bay dining, where some of Charleston’s best restaurants are located. This area is wonderful for long walks or bike rides – there’s always something new to see!
8 Gadsden Street is a four bedroom, four bathroom home with two full front porches that overlook the side yard and large backyard (a rarity in downtown Charleston). If the desired, there is plenty of room to add a pool or guest house to the property! Upon entering the front door, you are welcomed into the foyer which leads into the formal living room and formal dining room which both have bright windows, original fireplaces and decorative moldings. Also on the first floor is the kitchen which draws you in. Its exposed brick details, butcher block center island, and contemporary cabinetry will have you wanting to cook all the time! The home still boasts some of its historic charm – exposed brick and wide plank flooring – from its original design in 1880.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including the master, a study, and an extra full bath. The master has an en-suite bathroom, access to the porch, a beautiful fireplace, and several closets. The other two bedrooms are very well-sized. Attached to the main home is a guest house with a bedroom, full bath, and large deck. It also has its own private entrance so it can be as self-sufficient as desired.
The historic details, like original fireplaces and flooring, as well as the prime location make this listing a great find. Come see for yourself! Schedule a showing with listing agent Carter Rowson now!
