This three-story historic Charleston home, nestled in the heart of Ansonborough, combines contemporary finishes with a rich history to create a luxurious and unique property in one of downtown Charleston's most coveted neighborhoods. Built in 1851 for Charles Seignious, the home originally as a grocery store for many decades before being converted into a private residence and it still retains its storefront pattern with large shop windows on the first floor. It has been recognized by the Historic Charleston Foundation and received the Carolopolis Award from the Preservation Society of Charleston. Inside, the space has been thoroughly renovated and combines classic historic touches such as brick accent walls and original fireplaces with modern finishes such as contemporary lighting and top-of-the-line materials. Entering from Hassel Street, you will be greeted by the grandiose living room which is flooded with natural light from the oversized shop windows. Soaring ceilings, gleaming onyx flooring, and a custom-made granite-topped wet bar make it the perfect space for entertaining friends and family and the motorized blinds allow for privacy when desired. Just beyond the living room is the chef's kitchen and dining room. Thoughtfully renovated with modern cabinets, granite counters and Wolf appliances, it provides the perfect setting to whip up a gourmet meal. The open plan connects the kitchen to the dining room for easy conversation flow with tall brick walls, travertine floors and contemporary chandeliers adding visual interest and charm to the space. Accessed through French doors off the dining room is the expansive Charleston courtyard. Mature landscaping and brick privacy walls make this space incredibly private and the upscale blue stone patio sets the scene for an idyllic summer party. Other outdoor spaces include rooftop access, a rear sunning deck and two balconies off the second and third floor hallways which provide unobstructed views of the courtyard below as well as Charleston rooftops. The home's master suite is located on the second floor. The sunlit bedroom is filled with natural light and has an original fireplace and hardwood floors. A dressing hallway has custom-built storage and the contemporary master bath has a tile and glass rain shower, a fireplace and hand blown amber glass shades on track lighting. A large office is separated from the master bedroom by pocket doors and has built-in bookshelves and a fireplace. The home has five additional bedrooms with the third floor making an ideal guest retreat with a full kitchen, two bedrooms, rooftop access and a seating area. This property is truly one-of-a-kind and places you in the heart of downtown Charleston within walking distance of historic sites, parks and world-class restaurants.
