spot for this quintessential Charleston single home, this apartment is located on the second floor of one of Charleston's special historic homes. You enter the home through street steps onto the first floor piazza and then up the steps to the second floor overlooking treetops and rooftops. Now enter the apartment from the second floor piazza into a enormous high ceilinged GREAT ROOM with handsome wood floors, a sizable dining room table. The brand new KITCHEN with handsome cabinetry and quartz counter is tucked away to the rear of this light-filled "great room". The granite counter with barstools is an inviting gathering space where you can visit, watch the prepare or savor a glass of wine. The kitchen has a complete supply of dishes and cookware. We have tried to add items that would make entertaining a joy.
LIVING ROOM/4TH BEDROOM
to the left are double folding doors leading into the huge living room with classic fireplace. The room is furnished with 4 velvet swivel chairs on brass legs and a top of the line, impressive couch sleeper with gel queen bed. The handsome mahogany antique desk completes the space.
In one corner, next to the fireplace, is a very clever and complete BATHROOM (2nd) with roomy granite shower with handsome glass door. Guests can use this room as a 4th bedroom with a very secure door.
The great room where you enter and the well equipped kitchen complement the gracious living room along with the piazza to make a comfortable and beautiful space for friends and family to mix and socialize in a typical Charleston setting. MASTER BEDROOM
Off of the dining room to the right is a modest but comfortable bedroom (BR 1) with queen bed, a pretty window and closet and an entrance to the BATHROOM (1) with a soaking tub/shower. This bathroom can also be entered from the entrance room so also serves as another guest/common bathroom.
Between the kitchen and the living room is a striking spiral staircase leading to two super beautiful DORMER ROOMS (2&3), each with their OWN BATH (2&3). These rooms have the oldest and prettiest floors of any of our properties The triple windows look over the rooftops and are a joy to experience. Each of these rooms has a King Bed with the idea that there is plenty of room for couples or singles that want the bigger bed size to share. Of course the space is ideal for kids but also a couple would be happy since each room has total privacy including closet space and desks.
The space is under the dormers so a tall person will duck if getting in and out from the sides. The middle space in front of the window is full height. Let us know your preference so we can have it set up the way you want.
We are really excited to be offering this latest addition to our ST PHILIP SQUARE COMPLEX. Each apartment has something special but this might be our favorite. It is fashonable and provides an opportunity for our guests to receive their guests as a Charlestonian would. The three apartments in this building are all separate but connect through the piazzas and provide the ideal space to be together and separate.
