55 Smith Street Street, Charleston

An elegant Charleston house with one of the BEST LOCATIONS on the Peninsula! This 1895 Victorian Home was awarded by the Charleston Historical Society for its outstanding historic preservation--stands out for its light-filled rooms with high ceilings, period crown moldings, and original wood floors throughout. The formal living and dining spaces also feature marble mantel fireplaces, sophisticated chandeliers, and other original Victorian-era details. The large kitchen--outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances and loads of storage--opens up to a sunny family room with several windows and anchored by a second marble fireplace.The house has two staircases, providing easy access to the second floor. Here you will find the home's living quarters. There's a spacious master, with its duo-sink en-suite bathroom and gas fireplace, as well as three bedrooms with choice design features: two have gas fireplaces, one has a private balcony, and all have original wood floors, antique windows, and ample closet space. Two more upstairs bathrooms have classic tile work, pedestal sinks, and cast iron bathtubs. (A fourth full bathroom is located off of the airy downstairs foyer.) The second floor also has a spacious home office with built-in bookshelves and custom cabinetry. Outside you'll find a leisurely porch draped in wisteria, as well as lush gardens, a gated patio and green lawn, and burbling fountain. The house also has a roomy garden cellar, a stately brick driveway, a built-in sprinkler system, and artistic outdoor lighting. It's no wonder carriage tours pause outside of the garden gates! LOCATION: It's hard to beat 55 Smith Street on location. Here, you are blocks away from restaurants and shop-filled King Street; the College of Charleston campus; Colonial Lake, framed by native gardens; MUSC; and other conveniences (drug stores, coffee shops, cafes) and world-renowned Holy City landmarks.
