    Description

    The McCully Righton House, an exquisite South of Broad home, has been renovated beautifully with attention to fine historic detail. Elegant, yet livable! A wonderful example of the 18th century meeting the 21st century in Charleston's historic district. You are welcomed by a fully walled garden, equal in size to the footprint of the home - interior and garden flow together seamlessly. A classic pure Charleston Single style home. The living area is soaked by natural light from the position of the home on the lot. The access and amazing flow to the outdoors is perfect for entertaining. Formal dining, living and entry open on the piazza and meet the garden. The downstairs is anchored by a sun-filled eat-in-kitchen, which juts into the garden with floor to ceiling windows.The morning room, similar to a small arboretum, creates a rare oneness with nature. Thus, the garden's tranquility parlays into the modern kitchen, which is bathed in light and has a timeless design. The kitchen renovation spared no expense with marble countertops and high-end appliances. A formidable entryway and center staircase take you upstairs to the grand master suite and family bedrooms, all generously sized and accessible to the 2nd story piazza. The home is only steps to the battery - the harbor breezes are delightful on the second & third floor piazzas. Again fine historic details abound with every modern convenience, including a central vacuum system. All baths have been renovated with custom finishes. The owners keen vision and the professional design services of John Laurens, architect, Thomas Jayne, interior design, and Memrie Lewis landscape architect have truly married this homes historic integrity with modern function and sophistication. For history buffs the McCully Righton House was the first house on what was originally known as East Water Street. McCully Righton was a notable citizen in 18th century Charleston. He was a professional cooper, merchant, and City Council member. (Source Houselore) The lot was purchased in 1778 and the home built circa 1778-80. This traditional Charleston single house consisted of a two-and-a-half story main block on a high masonry foundation sheltered on the west by a double-tiered piazza screened by an Italianate style entry door that was probably added before the 1880's. Righton's family kept the property until 1885. David Briggs acquired it before the Civil War, but bankruptcy in 1868 required its forced sale. Henry Siegling of the Charleston family of music sellers purchased the house in 1874. (Source Walled City Section The Buildings of Charleston by Jonathan Poston) In 1998 The Holt family granted the exterior easement to the Historic Charleston Foundation. This home is move-in ready, has off street parking with a convenient side door access to the kitchen from the parking area. The property is only a short block to the Battery, and is walking distance to the theatre, shopping and fine restaurants.
