    Description

    Known as the Hughes House, 18 Limehouse Street is an exquisitely modernized 1853 home in the South of Broad neighborhood of historic downtown Charleston, SC. It's located just steps from the Battery and the Ashley River on a quiet street with large, nicely landscaped yards for privacy. A lovely garden bordered by palmetto trees leads to an inviting columned porch and impressive mahogany front door flanked by sidelights and gas lanterns. Inside, the home is bright and open. Popular neutral grays and whites perfectly update the historic fabric of the home, including exposed brick fireplaces, substantial decorative woodwork and moldings, heart pine floors and even some wavy glass window panes. The entryway opens to a stair hall and the formal dining room punctuated by an original fireplacFronting the street is a living room with another historic brick fireplace, deep crown molding and bullseye window encasements. Pocket doors lead to study or office with a built-in entertainment center. The large eat-in kitchen includes a central island, mirrored soft-closing cabinets, an 8-burner Wolf gas stove and a French door refrigerator seamlessly integrated into the cabinetry. The dining area has shiplap walls and series of skylights that add to the informal feel and bring the outside in. A French door leads to the back yard and a Carolina brick patio with a covered grilling cabana. A massive oak tree rises through the space, integrating the grandeur of nature into the home's interior. Connecting the kitchen to the dining room is a butler's pantry with a sink and ice maker and a hall with exposed beams on the wall. It creates a great space to showcase your wine collection. Glass transoms over the doors let the light flow throughout the areas. The family room is bathed in natural sunlight as well. Extensive paneling and moldings are sure to impress architecture and history buffs. Gas logs outfit this room's fireplace. Another French door accesses the garden. A bar room and half bath round out the first floor. Upstairs, a wide open hallway leads to 4 bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms. Marble, tile and historic-themed lighting fixtures lend the new baths a vintage feel. The spacious master suite boasts a private covered porch overlooking the garden, another fireplace and soaring open-beamed ceilings, as well as a large dressing room behind pocket doors. A bonus rooftop deck is enveloped by a canopy of treetops and the chimneys of neighboring residences, creating the perfect private outdoor getaway in the city. The large lot accommodates tandem off-street parking.
