Listed by Carolina One Real Estate and Mortgage. This stunning Harleston Village villa is the perfect home for entertaining, or just to call home. The property consists of a 3670 square foot main owner's quarters, with the remaining 2400 square feet currently utilized as 4 rental apartments. The main house has 4 huge bedrooms, and 3.5 baths. In addition to the 3670 square feet of heated and cooled space, the home boasts over 1800 square feet of piazzas that wrap around the front of the home, which add to the grand feeling of the home. Jeffersonian windows open to the piazzas to enhance their use and enjoyment in the wonderful tropical climate here in Charleston. The 1st floor opens up to a grand foyer with ornate 5 foot wainscoting, a multiple landing staircase, 12 foot ceilings, antique crystal chandelier, functioning fireplace, or inal hardwood floors with mahogany inlay, and massive functioning pocket doors. Many of the features follow through to the living room and dining room, which are bathed in a wonderful late afternoon sunlight. The rooms naturally flow together creating the perfect home for entertaining large parties with ease and grace. The private den or library, situated in the rear of the home, offers a quiet place to retreat to, and features a wet bar. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bath is quite large, with a fabulous claw footed bathtub. Much of the original charm of the home has been preserved, including functioning transom lights and original dual gas/ electric light fixtures. The bedrooms all feature working coal burning fireplaces, with a total of 7 throughout the house. Rare and unique in Charleston, this home has a basement that is not 'finished', but is an important and well used part of the home, adding to the understated size of the home. Don't forget to ask to see the attic another gem and opportunity with the property. It is a full 'walk-up' attic, with about 1800 square feet of space, tall ceilings, and hardwood pine floors. This space could be finished and utilized in any number of ways, while still allowing for ample space to be used as attic storage. The 4 apartments that are included with this property also present many opportunities. Two apartments are attached to the rear of the main house. Buyers can continue the use of these apartments as rental income, or choose to incorporate the apartments into additional living space for the main house, creating, perhaps, a redesigned and larger kitchen / den area with a back porch. Upstairs, the apartment space could be transformed into a wonderful master suite for the main house. The 3rd and 4th apartment are in a separate carriage house. There is ample parking in the rear for everybody. This Victorian villa really has it all for the discriminating buyer with the vision to imagine the possibilities.
