The Cunningham-Gordon Home circa 1828 on Charlotte Street is a late Federal Period home of historical distinction. This Carolopolis award winning property features a 3 1/2 story exposed brick main house, with two tiered wrap around piazzas and a gabled slate roof with dormer windows. A separate, two story brick kitchen house with a copper roof is located directly behind the main home and is currently used as an income producing rental. Recent improvements to the property include an in-ground pool flanked by a pool house, which conveniently provides a kitchen, bathroom and plenty of covered deck space. An English style greenhouse is located at the rear of the property and is easily accessible for those who love to garden. Following the Charleston single home plan, the main living area includes a foyer, formal dining, kitchen and pantry space. On the 2nd floor is the master bedroom and bathroom, along with a drawing room which is used as an upstairs living room. The 3rd floor offers 2 well proportioned, light-filled guest rooms with high ceilings. The 4th floor provides a full bathroom and 1 large storage room which could be used as a 4th bedroom. Beautiful hardwood floors can be found throughout the home along with period architectural details, such as moldings, fireplace mantels, hardware and custom millwork. There is a private wrought iron gated driveway with parking for multiple cars. This property is located in a non-hazardous X flood zone, so there are no issues with flooding or getting flood insurance. A facade easement is held with Historic Charleston Foundation which protects this historical property from any undesirable modifications.
