This Ansonborough jewel is one of the most charming carriage houses in Charleston. It has been beautifully restored and appointed with an eye for detail and impeccable taste. This was a "to-the-studs" renovation that took almost 3 years to complete. You pass through the elegant wrought iron, private gated entrance and make your way through a meticulous private garden. As you enter through the custom bulls-eye main door, to your immediate left is the heart of the home. A light-filled beautifully appointed living room surrounding a stunningly restored hearth awaits you. Don't miss the custom mounted flat screen TV discreetly hidden in the cabinetry to the left of the fireplace, perfect for when the TV needs to be out of the way.To your right, a creatively engineered kitchenconstructed with site milled heart pine stock crafted into exquisite custom cabinetry and counter tops made of honed green slate imported from Vermont. The dining room is just beyond the living room on your left. This bright and sunny room overlooks the patio, through french doors, and professionally designed landscape by Sheila Wertimer which was painstakingly planned and meticulously executed with hardscape, seasonal plantings and custom lighting. The ceiling and exposed walls are of plaster over sheet rock. Upstairs, on the second floor, is the master suite complete with gas fireplace, master bath, walk-in closet and the perfectly situated Eddie Fava designed, sitting room. This room, constructed by premier local contractor Jimmy Tupper, is flooded with light and a spectacular view of the gardens below. The top floor boasts a charming guest suite with dormer shutters, window seats, luxurious painted floors and furnished bathroom with walk-in closet. The window treatments, light fixtures and furnishings were carefully selected by the owner and interior designer, Cathy Swider. This carriage house, set back from the street with a private gated entry and driveway is a beautiful oasis. Just a short walk from the Gaillard Center Opera and Theater Hall, around the corner from Ansonborough Field and Park and steps to the active dining and shopping hub on King Street and Market Street. Do not let this downtown jewel slip away!
