This Property is located on HIGH GROUND and the street has a long history of NO TIDAL FLOODING. Listed as ''Valuable to City'' in This Is Charleston, this stunning, 1770s grand pre-revolutionary Georgian home on high ground has been meticulously restored by Glenn Keyes and Richard Marks. Located on a spacious double lot with southern exposure on one of South of Broad's most coveted streets. As you enter the home you are greeted by a beautiful foyer, detailed stair hall, and both formal living and dining rooms. The floor-plan is perfect for day to day living and for entertaining. Both formal rooms feature exquisite original woodwork, antique mantles and marble fireplace surrounds. The dining room features Zuber wallpaper and fine millwork. The gourmet kitchen is light and bright with large center island with seating, custom cabinetry, La Cornue range, Sub-Zero refrigerator & wine cooler, built-in ice machine, Miele dishwasher & oven warmer and fabulous marble counter tops. The kitchen seamlessly spills to large family room with fireplace, built-in bookshelves and cabinets. The lush gardens read well from this room and all rooms on the first floor. A powder room finishes off the first floor. On the second floor you will find the drawing room and master suite. The sun-drenched drawing room with fireplace and original woodwork is the perfect place to unwind with your favorite book or movie. The master bedroom has a beautiful fireplace with antique marble surround and is flanked with two closets. The marble master bath has a double sink vanity, makeup table, shower, soaking tub and water closet. The walk-in closet was custom designed and makes a great use of this space. The third floor has two large bedrooms and two full baths. The fourth floor features a bedroom, storage room and half bath. This home truly has it all! Enjoy the garden views from either piazza or two patios. Sheila Wertimer created two garden rooms that are tranquil and private with grand trees, palms and specimen plantings. Tasteful landscape lighting by Moonlighting has also made evenings in the garden just as magical as the day. A few additional details include: heart pine floors throughout, 7 fireplaces, smart-wired, built-in speakers, central vacuum, full basement, and off-street parking for 4 cars. As note, this home has had no water issues. This is original high ground. Orange Street is some of the highest ground South of Broad with no known history of water. This is one of the purest and most preserved Charleston Singles. The two most recent owners have done major renovations, so this home has been wall attended and updated throughout. This is an exceptional home and a must see!
