Agent Remarks

South of Broad sophistication! Elegant renovation of a classic Charleston single conveniently located in one of the peninsula's most coveted and well located boroughs. Perfect as a primary residence or an ideal pied-a-terre, this home is stunning both inside and out! The gas front lantern, mature landscaping, and spacious double piazzas greet you as you pass through the classic wrought iron welcome gate. Step onto the front porch or meander down the brick and bluestone path back to the private up-lit courtyard with matching bluestone hardscape, perfect for entertaining or casual al fresco dining. The large deck with pergola and double french doors provide a seamless transition from the courtyard into the updated eat in kitchen with gourmet appliances, kitchen island, porcelain farm sink, brick backsplash and gorgeous marble counter tops. The formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and touts designer wallpaper by F. Schumacher and one of the homes 4 original fireplaces! The often overlooked powder room under the stairs will be a topic of conversation at your next cocktail party with Cole and Son's wallpaper and antique fold out Pullman sink, originally used in luxury rail cars at the turn of the century. Tastefully renovated in 2016, the impressive master suite is home to an oversized walk in closet/dressing area with custom built ins which also neatly house the full size washer and dryer. The master bath features include high end plumbing fixtures, Kohler tub with glass enclosure, 3x12 glossy subway wall tile and custom made antique vanity dating back to 1850s England. In addition to impeccable maintenance, 8 Council's exterior was recently painted in 2017, HVAC unit replaced in 2017 and roof in 2012. Tucked away on a quiet, tree lined street, this idyllic Charleston address is just steps away from the Battery and Colonial Lake as well as local eateries like 1 Broad, Oak Steakhouse and South of Broad staple, Burbages Grocery. Charm, sophistication and location!
