3 Magazine Street, Charleston, SC

2009 Carolopolis Award winner. This Charleston Single home with back Cottage is located on a quiet, historic alley between Logan and Archdale Streets. Designed by Randolph Martz, this home underwent a thorough restoration back in 2008. The process included the building being torn back to the studs and rebuilt with new foundation and seam metal roof. The first and second floors boasts light-filled rooms with heart pine flooring throughout, restoration glass in the 6x6 windows, 4 fireplaces (2 of which are gas-log), custom-built mahogany cabinets, window sashes and trim throughout, tasteful interior shutters recently added. The kitchen features a breakfast area, custom mahogany cabinets, and new stainless-steel appliances purchased in 2017. More...The second level has the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, one guest bedroom, and a guest bath which is accessible from the hall. Each bath has custom cabinets and Italian crackle tiles. Ample closets and fully floored attic for additional storage. The exterior porch columns and doors are all solid mahogany. Other additions from the 2008 restoration include wrought iron gates and fencing, copper gutters, Restoration Hardware in all bathrooms, NewPort Brass faucets, and two Carrier HVAC systems. Electrical and plumbing installed in 2008 during renovation. A 320 square foot cottage is located to the rear of the property and has separate water and electricity meters, and tankless gas water heater. Metal roof installed to the cottage in 2016. Plans for a 2-story, 2-bedroom guest house to replace the cottage were drawn by Randolph Martz are attached (see documents) and were previously approved by the BZA/City of Charleston for demo. The main house has 2 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, with the downstairs front room being used as a third bedroom. The cottage house out back has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom.
