About 14 Gadsden Street
Located in Historic Downtown Charleston within the sought after Neighborhood of Harleston Village, is this magnificent 3 Story Charleston Side Hall style home, circa 1850. This home has been tastefully updated while preserving the history behind this property. As you walk into the home your attention is instantly drawn to the grand scale and craftsmanship that is sought after in downtown Charleston homes. The flooring throughout is heart pine hardwood, complemented by antique mantels for all of the fireplaces, as well as the magnificent mahogany wainscot winding staircase. To the right is the formal living room, boasting plaster crown molding throughout all public room, the classic trim work all around the fireplace, windows, doors to the first floor ''piazza'' (porch) and the traditionparlor sliding doors, connecting the living room to the dining room; with an antique french chandelier. The dining room is also equipped with a fireplace, and a lovely vintage chandelier. Running parallel to both of these rooms is the central hallway, where you will see the grand mahogany staircase, and will lead you into the charmingly updated kitchen. The kitchen has lovely cabinets, stone countertop features, luxurious appliances, brick accent wall, and an enchanting breakfast nook that overlooks your garden.
Heading up the grand mahogany staircase you reach the second level. Guests often stop to appreciate the woodworking that went into making these lovely stairs, and the wainscotting to match upon their ascension to the second level. Towards the front of this level is the oversized owner's suite; featuring your own period appropriate fireplace/ mantle, full bathroom, access to your second story "piazza" and a private den/library/office. Throughout the second floor there are Downton Abbey inspired door plates on numerous doors. In addition there is a guest bedroom on this level, with their own full bathroom. Finally there is a laundry room to finish off the second floor.
The picturesque third floor has 2 large dormer style bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The scale of the home is truly felt in these bedrooms as the large windows provide a ton of natural light and opens these rooms up to feel larger than a traditional dormer style bedroom.
Both of the Piazzas overlook the large fenced in lot that is meticulously maintained. From the Confederate Jasmine Vines running through the fence wall for natural privacy, to the Row of Taylor Juniper Trees placed to create more privacy for years to come. There is also a storage shed that romantic vines have grown over. The 3 vehicle off-street driveway runs directly towards the storage shed, running parallel to the driveway is a delightful garden to the right, and tucked away in the corner is a fountain. So each day when you pull into your home you get the feeling that you just placed yourself in the center of your own botanical garden.
