About 47 E Bay Street

One of the finest homes in historic downtown Charleston, the Anne Boone House is a breathtaking jewel, masterfully renovated by an elite team of Charleston experts. This pre-Revolutionary property encompasses an expansive .26-acre and more than 7,000 square feet. Historically, the home may have been built after the fire of 1740 within the brick shell of an early 18th century house. The north wall of the home features stucco and arched staircase windows survived from its original construction. Today, timeless elegance is seamlessly blended with modern luxury living at 47 East Bay. Renowned landscape architect, Glen Gardner, created a masterpiece with the grounds of this home, truly making you feel a world away from the bustle of downtown living. A lush garden, heated pool and multiple seating areas are just a few of the outdoor highlights to enjoy. The pool house conveniently hosts a bar, bathroom and shower and the yard is complete with irrigation, landscape lighting and turf. From top to bottom, no detail has been overlooked. Sale will be contingent on school admission decisions and Seller living in the home until June 15, 2023. Inside, the striking foyer features custom painted floors and Venetian plaster walls by artist Stephanie Poe. A spacious formal living room boasts an abundance of natural light and cypress wood paneling. There are six fireplaces throughout the home that can be used as gas or wood-burning. Intricate details like the ceiling medallions inspired by Drayton Hall remind you of this home's incredible history. Its formal dining room is ideal for entertaining with a butler's pantry equipped with two wine refrigerators. The informal dining room is a showpiece with floor-to-ceiling Dynamic Fenestration windows and doors. A chef's kitchen features white oak floors, Calacatta Blue Marble countertops, Dornbracht fittings and top-of-the-line appliances. The cozy sitting room off the kitchen showcases steel framed doors overlooking the pool and gardens, easily creating an indoor to outdoor living space. The second-floor landing is outfitted with Mosharabi panels handmade in Morocco, petrified wood tile by Ann Sacks and a beverage refrigerator and sink. The library maintains original floors and paneling with impressive custom bookshelves. Outside, the piazza is a tranquil place to take in the Charleston Harbor breezes. A delightful sunroom can be accessed by the piazza or the spacious primary suite. The primary bedroom suite features two fireplaces and dual closets. The bathroom is outfitted with radiant flooring, a steam shower, dual water closets, oak paneling and Bob Hines mirrorwork. Expertly designed en suite bedrooms span the third floor and a laundry room can also be found on this level. Guests will enjoy the private, fourth floor bedrooms with original ceiling beams, a beverage refrigerator and coffee bar. This space offers a full bath, an abundance of storage and a charming rooftop deck for even more outdoor space. Additional features include ample off-street parking and a three-floor elevator. The HVAC, electrical and plumbing have also been re-done in the entire home. From the impressive grounds, the standout renovation and the incredible design - this truly is a rare opportunity to own a piece of South of Broad history.
