The Robert Murray House (c. 1802), a masonry home in the iconic Charleston Single House style, is available for the first time in two decades. The original three-story structure maintains its historic integrity, with intact details including wainscoting, crown molding, heart pine floors, balusters, and an upper piazza accessible via five sets of French doors. The historic portion of the house includes a formal living room, dining room, four bedrooms, and three bathrooms. An elevator services all three floors, and a semi-finished dormer room on the fourth floor offers space to add an additional bedroom, office, or living space. On the first floor, towards the rear of the property, a contemporary addition offers a spacious kitchen, with custom cabinetry, a large island, and stainless steel appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is a family room with polished stone floors, beamed/vaulted ceiling, a wood burning fireplace, and a separate back den with a full bath that can double as a guest room or mother-in-law suite. Three sets of striking glass/steel French doors overlook the lush garden, designed by famed Charleston landscape architect, Loutrel Briggs, in 1947. In addition to the stunning basket weave brickwork and attractive stone hardscaping, the garden features a beautiful array of camellias, azaleas, ferns, palmettos, and other mature plantings. At the rear of the deep .18 acre lot is a private and picturesque lawn area, offering ample room to add a pool. The long driveway with a street-front privacy gate allows for off-street parking for multiple cars. Located in historic Charleston's famed South of Broad neighborhood and just steps from White Point Gardens and the Battery, South Battery is arguably one of downtown's most coveted addresses. For a prestigiously located, iconic Charleston home that beautifully blends historic architecture, contemporary style, and a show-stopping garden, don't miss this home.
