Priced to Sell. Seller will consider all reasonable offers. Circa 1790, 24 South Battery is situated on one of Charleston's most coveted streets South of Broad and is directly across from renowned White Point Gardens and the Charleston Harbor. The historic home was designed by famed Charleston architect, John Henry Devereux. It most notably served as the residence of the famous American author DuBose Heyward, who penned "Porgy"--later adapted into Gershwin's "Porgy & Bess"--along with noted Southern photographer George S. Cook. The main house boasts Italianate and Gothic Revival detailing in the ''Colonial Revival'' style as well as a separately metered two bedroom cottage. It has been extensively renovated by the current owners and offers a seamless mix of historic touches and contemporary, high-end conveniences. The main home showcases high ceilings, extensive crown molding, refinished hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces(all of which has been relined) and custom built-ins, giving the home an abundance of character and charm. The traditional floor plan has nice formal rooms including a light-filled living room and a gourmet kitchen with adjoining dining room. Some highlights of the completely remodeled kitchen and dining space include custom cabinetry, high-end stainless steel appliances, a porcelain farm sink, wine fridge, pantry, exposed brick detailing and a new buffet with storage. The spacious master bedroom, located on the second floor of the home, has a private screened porch overlooking White Point Gardens along with a walk-in closet, fireplace, sun room and multiple antique glass door closets. The en suite master bath is truly elegant with exposed brick detailing, a claw-foot cast iron tub, frameless glass shower, tile floors and more. The secondary bedroom on this floor has a newly configured contemporary en suite bath. On the third floor are two additional bedrooms, a shared bathroom with a claw foot tub and separate walk-in shower, a large storage area, closet and office space. The detached cottage, located behind the main home, offers two additional bedrooms, three remodeled bathrooms and a laundry room. It too has been thoroughly renovated and boasts a living room with custom built-ins and an eat-in kitchen with exposed brick detailing. The masterfully designed grounds of the property have been refreshed with a Charleston-style garden with all new plantings, all new hardscaping, brick-lined pathways, a new fountain and a slate patio off of the apartment. Additionally, the home comes with one off-street parking space(for a small vehicle) which is accessible by a shared electronic gate. ALL appliances, electrical, mechanical, gas and plumbing systems throughout both houses are new. A full list of renovations is attached.
