Charleston Real Estate- 43 Society Street Charleston

Downtown Opulence! 43 Society Street Charleston

This is a beautiful 1840’s masonry building that represents what Ansonborough’s history is all about. This type of masonry home was mandatory to build after the great fire that destroyed most of the this neighborhood if you wanted a mortgage at the time.
The rooms are large, elegant and graceful with most of the original details including gleaming pine floors, beautiful moldings, wainscoting, doors, staircase, and 8 fireplaces. This bright, sophisticated Charleston real estate is quite different from most single houses in that it has it’s original kitchen house and carriage house. The restoration incorporated these dependencies into the main residence using the original kitchen house as the kitchen with the large cooking fireplaces uniquely incorporated and the lower level used as a large wine cellar that includes plenty of room for wine storage and a generous table. The media room and office are also included on this lower level.

The top level of this kitchen house creates a sensual “European style” bath with fireplace, double sinks, lounge, water closet and separate soaking tub. A family room encompasses the entire carriage house with a 2 level, soaring cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and bath while opening to a private garden with outdoor terrace. This home has been featured in Charleston Magazine, and is a unique, gorgeous home balancing the low country style with a European flair. Parking for 2 cars.
