Unit C - 5 Legare Street, Charleston

A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a magnificent, low-maintenance, historically significant home replete with character and charm on one of the most desired streets in downtown Charleston steps away from the Battery! This stunning 2-story (3rd and 4th floor) condominium, formerly part of the original home at 5 Legare is a timeless collaboration between Charleston's rich, historic past and the conveniences of today, affording unparallelled character and workmanship with modern-day elegance and livability.Stroll down the long and handsome driveway to the private entrance which escorts you to the exclusive elevator ascending you to the third floor of this magnificent building and the main floor of this stately abode. Soaring 11' ceilings and attractive heart pine floors greet you as you enter the foyer and are found throughout the first level installed to match original heart pine floors from 1830, complete with square nails, gracing the dining room. Heavy crown molding, wainscoting, built-in shelving, elegant fixtures and gorgeous decorative accents abound throughout the home. The large galley kitchen presents Bianco marble countertops, new appliances (except for the refrigerator) and a plethora of cabinets with designer pulls as well as a generous bar area also covered in Bianco marble. The formal dining room, again with original heart pine flooring and a fireplace with a gorgeous mantle is perfect for entertaining and family dinners. The oversized living room which also exudes character, has a fireplace with a gorgeous mantle and opens to the magnificent terrace extending the length of the home. Relax with your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail while being caressed by lowcountry breezes and chatter of guinea fowl and rhythm of the carriage horses at the corner of Legare and Lamboll. The view from the terrace of the magnificent garden next door, replete with magnolia trees and history is unparalleled. Across the street at 27 Legare is the Reynolds Home, the site of the first society party to celebrate the end of the Civil War!
