Known for its stunning architectural details and historic homes, South of Broad is one of the most coveted neighborhoods in all of downtown Charleston. Charles McIntosh’s listing at 9 Bedons Aly is no exception to that standard with a charming exposed brick exterior dating back to the 1740’s. The home is tucked away on a small alley off of Tradd Street and is known in historical circles as the Mackie-Holton House.
Expertly Renovated Interior
The interior of the home was painstakingly renovated by renowned Charleston architect Christopher Rose and served as his private residence. The light-filled first floor encompasses the kitchen and living areas. Italian stone countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and a large center island make the elegantly-appointed kitchen a cook’s dream and the grand living room adjoins the kitchen to create a cohesive flow. Oversized French mahogany doors extend from the living room to the courtyard and quartzite stone flooring in the kitchen, living room and courtyard seamlessly blends the indoor and outdoor living spaces into one.
Opening from the living room, this private retreat has been expertly designed for optimal enjoyment. Lush landscaping and a stunning central fountain add beauty and interest to the space while tall, ivy-covered walls make it extremely private. It is the perfect place to host a spring party or a great spot to simply relax after a day’s work. There is also a half bath.
Second & Third Floors
Located on the second floor of 9 Beonds Aly is the master suite. The space has been renovated with a built-in armoire in the bedroom and an upscale master bath with marble flooring and walls. Nods to the home’s history, though, are found in the bedroom’s charming fireplace and original hardwood floors. Across the hall from the master suite is a study which also has a fireplace along with a wall of built-in bookshelves. The third floor of the home houses the remaining two bedrooms, each with a fireplace, and a shared full bath. The back bedroom also has access to a private rooftop deck overlooking Bedons Aly and offering panoramic vistas of the historic city’s rooftops.
