32 Council Street, Charleston

Priced below appraisal! 32 Council is a truly authentic and elegant South of Broad experience just off Murray Boulevard steps from White Point Garden and The Battery. The home is built so high that floods have never threatened the first floor, not even during Hurricane Hugo. 32 Council has a grand presence on a corner lot in what many consider to be one of the best neighborhoods in the city. Walk to the farmers market, your favorite restaurants or shops, take a golf cart to a Spoleto event, concert or find a cozy roof-top bar to watch the sunset. The marble steps lead to a lovely entrance hall recently updated with Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper. The traditional layout offers a formal dining and living room with classic crystal chandeliers and a gas log fireplace.The kitchen and den coexist as one large space with updated Circa lighting providing a space perfect for entertaining. Hidden behind the kitchen is a cozy study/library with a built-in bar and cabinets. It can be a four-bedroom house or use the fourth bedroom as a studio or office. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and en-suite bath with seamless glass shower, fine basket-woven marble tile, polished nickel fixtures and an oversized water closet with natural light. Built in 1936 by E. Gaillard Dotterer with sophisticated craftsmanship including hand crafted moldings, high ceilings, oak hardwood flooring, wainscots and paneling that provide a high-caliber sense of place in this architecturally important community. The English garden provides an elegant back yard, perfect for entertaining in a walled courtyard built with blue stone, handmade historic bricks from the 1700s, mature tall trees and indirect outdoor lighting. There is a wood working shop connected to the garage that adds many possibilities for extra space. This home offers off-street parking on a driveway paved with historic cobble stones and a detached garage, but there is so much on-street parking available that the owners have never had to use the driveway once in 13 years. This fine home embodies the heart and soul of Charleston.
