Historic Vernacular Cottage owned by Henry L. Small has been completely rebuilt from top to bottom, inside and out - with off-street parking and backyard retreat! Located in Charleston's famed Historic District, this home was fully restored within historical guidelines but finished with the modern style and conveniences of a newly built home. New wood Piazza door opens to a gracious full length side porch with rear steps to the brick-lined patio in the back. The main entry doors opens into dining/living room anchored by the fully exposed original brick fireplace- currently non-working. Wood beams overhead extend the height to 14' Vaulted Ceilings. Front spaces of the house maintain the original 134 year old Heart Pine flooring. Rear spaces installed new Historic Grade Heart Pine salvaged locally. The kitchen is fitted with upgraded white Shaker-style cabinetry, touch activated Delta faucet, champagne hardware, and matte steel appliances. Handmade Spanish tile backsplash and marble counters keep the surfaces clean and bright. The chic blue shiplap hallway leads to a laundry room, linen closet and full bath and second bed. This center bath includes a gorgeous tile floor and shower with frameless glass entry. The master en-suite includes more handmade Spanish tile a custom 14" marble backsplash and wall-mounted faucet. The rear garden is your urban oasis tucked quietly around the house with lush landscaping, privacy fence and original Charleston bricks framing the elevated patio. The property is a true gem in an already remarkable city. All steps were taken to be eligible for the city's esteemed Carolopolis Award which will be applied for by current owner.
