This fine home, situated on the battery overlooking the picturesque white point gardens, is one of the most desirable locations in all of charleston. Built in 1860, by well-known civil war photographer george c. Cook, this masonry italianate home displays a perfect marriage between the preservation of historical integrity and modern day needs and desires. This magnificent property has undergone an exhaustive and meticulous renovation, with attention to every detail, and a focus on all aspects of the dwelling, from the functional (mechanical, structural, electrical and plumbing) to the decorative (luxurious kitchen, baths, mantles, fixtures, and flooring). Upon entering, you are drawn to the gracious hallway and the adjacent spacious living and dining rooms, complete with period mantles, chandeliers and gleaming hardwood floors. An elevator is discreetly located behind a doorway in the dining room, and services the three floors. Further down the hall you will enter the exquisitely designed kitchen featuring charming brick walls with high quality cabinetry, top notch stainless steel appliances, and marble countertops. From the kitchen you are drawn to a cozy family room with french doors leading out to an inviting private courtyard with a koi pond. The second level features a bright and beautiful drawing room with twelve foot ceilings, and a wide balcony overlooking white point gardens. This room is so welcoming, you may never want to leave. The second level also features two guest bedroom suites, and two full baths. The third level features a spacious master suite, accessible by either the elevator or stairway. A private balcony, sitting room, dressing room, generous closets, and a large master bath with double vanities, soaking tub, and separate shower complete the third level. The fourth floor offers a bedroom suite with closets, storage and full bath. The lot is extremely large, with endless possibilities. A private entrance off of king street makes this property unique and enviable. Parking available for multiple cars. Room for a pool, exquisite garden and possibly another structure, with bar approval. This remarkable property must be seen to be fully appreciated. The home is completely turn-key, all it needs is you.
