18 Pitt Street, Charleston, SC

Classic Duplex, 3 BR's & 2 BA's per floor, parking for 4 cars +. Incredible Location. Two blocks walk to the center of the CofC campus and CofC Library. Very close to beautiful Colonial Lake Park and King Street. Upstairs is rented for $2700 through July. Downstairs is also rented for $2700 through July. Downstairs tenants are interested in renewing for a year. Sellers may leave one of the floors available at the end of the leases, so a buyer could have the choice to occupy, upgrade, or rent it to their tenant of choice. Units always rented, strong rental history, have rarely had a vacancy. Great opportunity to use the property to use one floor for personal use and generate income from the other floor.Great opportunity to use the property to use one floor for personal use, either live full time, or part time, and for family, friends, weekend getaways, etc. and generate income from the other floor, with your choice of tenants. Meticulously maintained and managed by the same owners for 24 years. Parking for 4+ cars on-site and street parking decals are available. Exterior in excellent condition, interior in good condition. Exterior improvements performed recently include window repair, siding repair, extensive caulking, primer/sealer & 2 coats of latex. Easy to maintain white exterior. One HVAC unit as well as the gas pack, boots and registers were replaced within the last 5/6 years. A Great Feature: This duplex has a highly desirable roofing system, a reverse clamshell shaped Metal roof that drains to one solid 6" copper pipe that flows to a below ground cistern. This is a much superior system to no gutters, or gutters draining water to the earth surrounding the home, yard and foundation. This premium standing seam metal roof was recently refinished and sealed. Another premium aspect: This area of Pitt Street is some of highest ground elevation on the peninsula, and this property has a base elevation is 13.0 feet, as determined by engineering and flood elevation consultants, therefore reducing flood insurance costs. An Elevation certificate was done in October 2018 and is available from your Realtor. The interior is in classic college rental condition, could be kept as is, or the kitchens and bathrooms could be upgraded, allowing a substantial increase in rent and cash flow, and immediately increasing the value of the property. The interior floor plans work well, with one BR at the front of the house and 2 others at the rear, and the common living area separating them. Tenants have always loved this arrangement. The laundry area for the first floor is at the rear of the home, could easily be moved inside, second floor laundry in suite. The first floor has spilt entrances, allowing the possibility of informally renting out the front, with 1 BR, Kitchen, Bathroom and Living area, and using the back suite with it's own entrance, 2 BR's, and a bathroom. There are numerous closets and extra storage areas on both floors. Both units have very large Piazzas (Porches), great for outdoor leisure time and space, with the second floor Piazza running 7 Columns in length from front to back. Both face the South, exposed to the refreshing afternoon Sea Breezes. Unique for downtown duplexes, is a large backyard space, with numerous spaces for parking, two separate storage sheds, and a treed area with palm trees and bamboo, would be a nice place for a small garden or outdoor table and chairs. Property is safely located within the CofC Protection and Security area, with nighttime patrol. Thank you for considering this premium Charleston Duplex that is in great condition, has a flexible floor plan, opportunity to upgrade the interior, tons of parking or backyard space, and is in a premium location in desirable Harleston Village.
