Welcome to 40 Poinsett St where historic Charleston meets modern finishes. This home was originally built in 1925 and has been meticulously restored by Rockwell Construction with attention to every detail and was recently featured on HGTV's ''House Hunters''. No flood insurance required. As you enter the front door, you first notice the beautiful natural red oak floors throughout as well as the reclaimed door from a local plantation from the 1800's in the downstairs bedroom. The foyer is enhanced by the design of the open staircase with a beautiful custom iron handrail made by a local craftsman on Johns Island. The half wall at the top of the stairs has a modern touch with V-groove shiplap. The renovation was taken back to the original wall studs and rebuilt with treated lumber, all new insulation, sheet rock, new wiring with a new 200 amp service, new HVAC and all new plumbing. New stainless appliances and fixtures as well as a Rinnai tankless gas water heater were added. The main house and the detached Mother-in-law suite have a new architectural roof and windows. The MIL has been dried in with all new sub flooring and can be used as a studio, office or one bedroom rental. All the interior doors of the main house are solid wood and the four bedroom doors were from the Historic Charleston Foundation. The kitchen has soft close cabinets with quartzite countertops. The downstairs bathroom has a Carrera marble counter and floor, a custom vanity made from original beams and a shower. The bathroom mirror is framed with the original 1925 wood scalloped siding from the house. The upstairs bath has old style black and white pin wheel tile on the floor, a custom vanity, granite counter tops and a frameless shower. The shelving is made from original wood beams. The master bathroom has honed Carrera marble counter tops, custom vanity with double sinks, a tub and shower with a marble floor. The driveway is crushed granite and has space for off street parking. There is an installed security system, privacy fence with front and back gates. The outside lighting is Dusk to Dawn LED on the front and back of the house. The exterior siding is all treated lumber that has been primed and painted on both sides to ensure longevity. The house is within walking distance to grocery and drug stores, a library, new restaurants, schools and churches. It is near Hampton Park and adjacent to the City of Charleston Low Line project which will include walking and biking trails. This house is move in ready and needs to be seen in person to appreciate the beauty and character!
