Remarks:
Historic Charleston Charm Meets Sophisticated Modern Elegance, in the heart of the French Quarter, literally just blocks from the Waterfront Park fountain and many of the city's most famous restaurants and destinations. Built with an exterior of stucco over brick in circa 1796, this stately three story residence has endured storms, fires, earthquakes, and Civil War bombardment. In more recent years it has been restored and renovated on three occasions, most recently in 2015. Following historic restoration in 1981, the house was given the coveted 1982 Carolopolis Award by the Preservation Society of Charleston. From the first moment, as you pass through the Phillip Simmons wrought iron gate into the shaded entrance alle garden, you are entering a special place, an enchanted oasis in the mo st exciting part of America's #1 city. The aspect of old Charleston seen from every window quietly asks for the attention of an artist. The "state of the art" chef's kitchen finished in walnut, marble, quartz, and stainless is a contemporary nod to its history as the shop of one of Charleston's most renowned cabinet makers, Edwin H. Smith. Smitty's Cabinets occupied the ground floor until his death in 1979, after which the space was converted to a grand parlor with moldings and wainscoting matching the original patterns of the upper floors. The cloistered rear garden behind the kitchen is this home's little secret and its best surprise. Oh Rhett! ... Let's do please live in Charleston. Lease for one covered and secured parking space across the street @ Queensgate is transferable.
