57 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC

The General Thomas Pinckney house dates to 1783 and is not only ''Valuable to the City'' but also classified as a Category 3 property in the Architectural Inventory by the City of Charleston. These classifications were determined by the Carolina Art Assoc., early preservationist in Charleston in 1944, and the City in 1974. The marble entrance and paneled walls showcase the elegance of this home and the floor plan works beautifully for entertaining and modern living. A handsome library with benchmade walnut panel work opens up to the patio and garden. The formal dining and living rooms on the first floor are adjacent and make entertaining a breeze. The generous master suite with fireplace on the second floor has a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the garden.There is an additional open library off the master, which leads to the drawing room. The drawing room, with a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the Ashley River and the Yacht Club, is pure Charleston. A full guest bathroom is located off the drawing room. The bright and generous 3rd floor hosts 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a magnificent beamed ceiling with expansive views of the Ashley out to Fort Sumter and Mount Pleasant. This gracious and meticulously renovated masonry home on the East Battery hides the most magnificent, very deep lot, set out of public viewing behind the property. The garden has been transformed into lush garden rooms with expansive grassy areas and a charming dining arbor.
