  • MLS® 22027564 is located at 63 Society Street in Downtown Charleston, SC. This house offers 6 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and is 6640 square feet.

Located in the heart of downtown's Ansonborough neighborhood, this stunning home has been extensively renovated and offers a flowing floor plan, contemporary finishes, and inviting outdoor living spaces. The building was originally constructed in 1840 as a lecture room for the Second Prebyterian Church. It was then renovated as a Catholic Church in 1861 (St. Paul's Catholic Church) to serve German Catholics in the parish, before being purchased by the Palmetto Post of the American Legion in 1947 and extensively altered. The home is now configured into a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath primary residence on the first, second and third floors, and 3 bedroom/2 bath apartment on the ground floor. A rec room, sunroom, third kitchen, and full bath are also on the first floor and are part of the mainresidence. Upon entering the home, you will notice beautifully preserved details including hardwood floors, 20' ceilings, beautiful formally detailed beams that held the church's candlestick chandeliers (you can see the hooks where they were lowered and raised from the side), a fireplace, and arched windows alluding to the home's history as a church. The open floor plan includes a living room, dining room, and kitchen, which has been updated with top-of-the-line finishes including marble counters, custom cabinets, high-end stainless appliances, and a generous breakfast space. The primary bedroom suite is also located on this floor and includes a large bedroom, a light-filled sitting room, an expansive walk-in closet with custom shelving, and a luxuriously appointed en suite bathroom complete with custom vanities, marble floors, a soaking tub, and a marble shower. Lofted living spaces on the third floor overlook the home's main living areas, while part of the space has been configured into an office which was formerly the church balcony and old bell tower of the church. Access is via a custom made glass sided walkway which also has full open views of the second floor. There are two bedrooms on the third floor and each has an en suite bathroom with elegant finishes and walk-in closets. The first floor space offers one separate unit which would accommodate a rental or in-law suite. Privacy is insured with a separate side-garden walkway with a gated entrance. This space has a living area, full kitchen, dining area and two updated bathrooms with the same premium finishes as the main home. The home's outdoor living spaces are also not to be missed. A covered patio opens to the private backyard, which includes a large dining patio, rooftop deck, koi pond, fountain, and outdoor kitchen. The home has a gated entrance, off-street parking for several cars and a gated entrance off the driveway to the garden. The location is also ideal. You are just minutes shops, restaurants, parks, galleries, museums, and more, while still being in a very residential neighborhood.
