  • Office: Handsome Properties, Inc.

Built circa 1809 by prominent Charlestonian Anthony Vanderhorst Toomer and restored in the 1970s, this rare plantation-style double house in Charleston's historic district is surrounded by beautiful gardens and masonry and is nestled behind a large privacy fence. This Category 2 property is listed as ''Notable'' in the book ''This is Charleston,'' and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After passing through the delightfully manicured garden and climbing the stairs onto the double-tiered front piazza, you'll find formal living and dining rooms flanking the central hall to the left and right. Heart pine flooring and exquisite hand-carved mantles put the original details of the home on display.The spacious rear of the home boasts tall beamed ceilings and features an enormous chef's kitchen with top-end appliances, marble countertops, a breakfast area and wet bar, and an extra large island. The kitchen expands into a post-and-beam living room with an adjacent private back porch that overlooks a brick courtyard and fountain. On the second floor, the master suite includes an attached office or nursery, massive walk-in closet, and generous master bath with separate garden tub and shower. This level also boasts a wood-paneled gentleman's library, sunroom, and a second-story back porch. Two bedrooms and a full bath can be found on the third level. The hidden gem of this extraordinary property is the ground-floor apartment or guest suite, which can be rented long term or, with approvals from the City, less than 30 days at a time. This private space includes a full kitchen and bath, enclosed porch, and opens up to the brick courtyard and fountain at the rear of the home. The elevator goes from this ground level to the master suite level. This fantastic home is situated in the desirable Wraggborough neighborhood, 2.5 blocks from King Street and the vibrant restaurant, nightlife, and shopping scene that Charleston has to offer. Some additional features of this home include gated parking for 3+ cars, a ground floor workshop or storage space, quiet elevator, two meters, and five fireplaces. Historic Charleston Foundation holds a historic Easement and first right of refusal on the Property.
