26 Wentworth St. is an opportunity to experience the real Downtown Charleston and to own a piece of its history. Originally built in approximately 1841, this home was featured in the October 1998 edition of the magazine Early American Homes and according to the author, this charming home was likely first built as a kitchen house for the Gardner House next door and was split off from the main house to form a separately owned piece of property in approximately 1924. Along with so many other historically beautiful features, this home possesses a custom kitchen designed by The Kennebec Company of Maine, which specializes in handcrafted period cabinetry. The Shaker-style cherry cabinets with a layered reddish-brown finish that simulates age old tableware and cookware is a delight andis accompanied by a showpiece of cooking equipment, a Viking brand gas range which would be the pride of any chefs home. The corner angle set kitchen sink is a cleverly designed space saver for this quaint and functional space and the large Sub-Zero brand refrigerator is quite impressive. Upstairs, a large master bedroom is surrounded by windows allowing for plenty of natural light to enter the space. The master bedroom also has built in bookshelves which serve both function and aesthetics very well. The second bedroom is currently fitted to be an office with built in bookshelves and a desk and would make an excellent work or study space, but could easily be re-fitted to be used as a living space. Also upstairs is the fully tiled custom bathroom with a deep jetted tub which adds a bit of modern comfort to this deeply rooted historic downtown Charleston home. This treasure of a property shows off newly re-finished solid hardwood floors throughout the entire home with the only exception being the tiled bathroom floor and newly re-finished stair treads. As added protection and longevity for this historical gem, this home is equipped with roll down hurricane shutters and a real copper roof with gutters. Two valuable features that deserve highlighting. When exiting the impact resistant rear door of the home one will find the paver patio, surrounded by a high brick wall, creating a lovely private space for sitting and relaxing or the perfect place for some good company, a nice cup of tea and some stimulating conversation. The beautifully landscaped and accented surroundings will undoubtedly become a favorite spot. The Ansonborough part of Downtown Charleston is arguably the most convenient downtown neighborhood in Charleston. 26 Wentworth St. is located between Meeting St. and East Bay St. Just a few minutes walk is the intersection of Wentworth St. and East Bay St. and the Harris Teeter grocery store. A few minutes the opposite direction is the intersection of Wentworth St. and Meeting St. and just on the corner is Jestine's Kitchen, one block south is F.I.G. and 3 blocks from there is the Historic Charleston City Market. Continue across Meeting St. for one more block and the famous King St. shops present themselves ready for exploring and indulgence. If ever there was a desire to experience the real Downtown Charleston and all it has to offer, this is the opportunity.
