Remarks
Exceptionally rare, historically significant, impeccably maintained, the Thomas Doughty estate is situated on over .3 acres in the heart of Charleston's most desirable downtown area- Ansonborough. Painstakingly restored in 1994 by the current owners, this Carolopolis winning estate is designated as "valuable" to the city's architectural heritage. With spacious formal living room, dining room, and library boasting ornate Adamesque mantles and original woodworking as well as graciously sized bedrooms and bathrooms, this exceptional brick home is a once in a generation opportunity. The ground level mother in law suite offers formal living room, galley kitchen and full master bedroom with large closets - a perfect space for a staff member or guests. Set back from the street is a most exceptional private garden with large saline pool, porch and terrace, and traditional garden rooms and patios with magnificent landscaping including an impressive row of Italian Cypress trees. A separate Carriage House is accessed through the slate patio and walkway and is the perfect retreat for long term guests. The carriage house offers two bedrooms, each with a private bath, as well as a spacious dining room, living room and kitchen each with fireplaces. The Belgian block driveway opens onto a 6 car parking court with a full two car garage and handsome pergola for additional parking and storage. This award winning historic home has everything you could possibly need in the heart of downtown, only steps from the newly renovated Gaillard center and all the best of Charleston's lively cultural scene.
