Description

Welcome to 71 Pitt Street, the perfect Southern family home. From the moment you enter the house onto the gracious and wide piazza, you are immersed in Charleston charm. Known as the Desel House, this classic Charleston Single was built c. 1836 .This chic and stylish Carolopolis award-winning house was recently featured on the cover of The Wall Street Journal's Off-Duty section, Charleston Magazine, and Southern Living. The entry foyer features a Scandinavian-inspired stenciled floor, a center staircase with a mahogany curved handrail, rising three floors. The formal living room is bright and sunny, with wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings, and deep crown molding. The spacious dining room features a gas fireplace, a sophisticated built-in bar with glass shelvewhich is large enough to service grand dinner parties. The beautiful chef's kitchen is truly the heart of the home, a large, open, and airy space with beamed ceilings and custom lighting. Honed granite countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, custom cabinetry, and a fantastic new pantry with abundant storage and wine fridge make this a dream kitchen. An exposed metal beam, painted in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue, runs the length of the long space. There is a center island with barstool seating, as well as a cozy corner banquet nook along large windows for casual dining. The living room, dining room, and kitchen all have French doors that open onto the piazza and spill down to the large garden below. Seamlessly integrating interior and outdoor living spaces, the property flows beautifully for entertaining. Beyond the kitchen, pass through the hyphen to the attached carriage house. The grand family room with exposed beams and vaulted ceiling is the perfect blend of Caribbean flair and historic Charleston charm. This room includes built-in bookshelves, one that includes a large desk. Past the family room is a fabulous glass addition with huge windows, a large glass wall and balcony overlooking the garden, which can be a perfect home office, gym, additional den, or children's playroom. The hyphen contains a large new laundry room with abundant storage and built-in cabinetry. From the family room, you can access the ground floor of the carriage house, which contains a full studio apartment overlooking the garden with its own exterior entrance. This spacious studio apartment is separately metered and features a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, open living, dining, and bedroom areas, beadboard accent walls, and a full bathroom with shower. The carriage house can be accessed directly from the main house through a (locked) door and staircase for seamless integration of the space into the main house, or it has its own exterior entrance through the garden. There is a very strong rental history for the carriage house. The primary suite is located on the second floor of the main house and features a fireplace. The primary bathroom has a cool curved wall that cleverly houses the walk-in closet, and in the bathroom, there is a separate antique claw-foot soaking tub, dual vanities, built-in storage, walk-in copper shower and a modified version of an original Venetian (Palladian) window. There is another large, sunny guest bedroom suite on the second floor, with new full bathroom with Circa lighting, Galbraith & Paul wallpaper, and stylish new tiles added in 2021. The third-floor features two charming bedrooms with rooftop views, and a shared full bath with tub/shower combo, shiplap walls, and updated tile and vanity. The expansive lot is over 200 feet deep and .27 acre, an oasis in the middle of the city. The garden has been dramatically upgraded with extensive new landscaping, including brick and bluestone pathways, masonry patio area for al fresco dining, new 5-hole putting green, numerous trees and shrubs installed, and a large grass area in the rear with room for a pool or children's play area. All improvements were meticulously executed to retain the integrity of renowned landscape architect Sheila Wertimer's original garden design. Property is fully fenced for privacy and safety. The brick parking pad was enlarged to provide for off-street parking for 2 cars plus a golf cart. There is plenty of enclosed storage space under the house for bicycles, beach gear, and sports equipment. The property is conveniently located near Ashley Hall School, MUSC, King Street, Marion Square, and the College of Charleston. Other notable features include beautiful 1820's grand scale rooms, gleaming antique heart pine wood floors throughout, exposed beamed ceilings, large windows and doors providing tons of natural light, all of which have been lovingly maintained to make this charming and sophisticated home turnkey.
