VICTORIAN CHARM ON COLONIAL LAKE! With only a handful of homesites on desirable Colonial Lake in Historic Downtown Charleston, you'll know you've found something truly unique with this Victorian masterpiece! This home will make your heart soar and long to learn all of the rich stories it could tell! Welcome to the Benjamin Harleston Read Simons home that has won the Preservation Society's Carolopolis Award for excellence in Historic Preservation! This impressive Victorian home with over 5300 square feet was built in 1894 and is in the coveted historic neighborhood of Harleston Village, overlooking enchanting Colonial Lake. It is stunning in its grandeur and has been wonderfully maintained and updated throughout the years. The details of this unique home are exquisite and will truly delightthe future owners. After stepping through the Philip Simmons wrought iron gate, you'll immediately notice the mature and manicured landscaping that offers both privacy and an easy way to engage with your neighbors. When you reach the wide front porch, be sure to turn around to cherish the breathtaking views. Standout features within this home are gorgeous stained glass windows, decorative wood trim, a double porch on the south side, and a two-story octagonal turret capped with a bell shaped roof and an ornate finial. The breathtaking designs continue inside the home with original heart pine floors, plaster ceiling medallions, outstanding millwork, fireplaces with intricate wood and tile surrounds, high ceilings with crown molding, and so much more. In the spacious entryway, you'll find a grand staircase, fireplace and seating area. To the right is a formal living space with French doors leading to the porch and a cozy study separated by oversized pocket doors. A large formal dining room is through the door just past the stairs, and an additional generously-sized room with a full bath can be used as a main level bedroom or family room. A roomy half bath is located under the rear staircase and features marble tile flooring. The kitchen features skylights, loads of cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, a large central island, a built-in breakfast nook, and marble tile flooring. A laundry and utility room with extra storage rounds out the first floor. On the second level you'll find the generous primary suite that features dual vanities and beautiful marble tile flooring. Two full bathrooms and three more bedrooms, two of which have doors out to the porch, can also be found on the second floor. Take in the spectacular views of Colonial Lake from the seating area in the turret at the front of the home. The third level is a finished attic space with lots of character in its angled walls. There is a bedroom, full bathroom and through a set of glass French doors is an open space with endless possibilities as a home office, gym, or bonus room. Outside in the garden, there is truly a relaxing oasis! A sunny back deck steps you down to mossy brick paths, the brick patio, a tidy lawn, and lush greenery. A shed is present to store all the tools needed to employ your green thumb. You'll love entertaining with garden parties and lawn games in this gorgeous space! There is off street parking for three cars. This property is conveniently located near several amenities on the Charleston Peninsula. You'll love strolling down its historic streets as each one offers a new adventure! It is .7 miles from shopping and restaurants on King St, .8 miles from the medical district, and 1.1 miles from White Point Gardens at the battery. Off peninsula it is 10 miles from Sullivan's Island, and 12.5 miles from Charleston International Airport. This one of a kind home is absolutely not to be missed!
