Nestled in the heart of Charleston's French Quarter, this charming 1840's brick home located at one of the highest points in the City has been masterfully renovated in 2020, blending top-of-the-line finishes with historic charm to create a truly stunning home filled with character and warmth. Cobblestone streets, a brick facade and a wrought iron gate create an inviting entrance. Inside, you will see that no detail was spared in the to-the-studs renovation and extensive addition, designed and led by award winning EE Fava Architects. The interior of the home is brand new with all new systems and a modern addition on the first and second floors, defined by contemporary floor to ceiling windows and glass. Crown molding, designer wallpaper, multiple fireplaces, stylish light fixtures and moreadorn the living spaces which include a formal living room, spacious sitting room, updated kitchen and sun-soaked dining area. Custom cabinets, brass hardware and fixtures, high-end appliances, stone counters and a walnut-topped center island enhance the contemporary kitchen, which adjoins the dining space with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a new verdant brick walled garden designed by famed landscape architect, Glen Gardner. The second floor of the property is home to the primary bedroom suite. The private retreat includes a sunlit bedroom with a fireplace, a walk-in dressing room with custom shelving, a workout room or office with floor to ceiling windows, and an elegantly appointed en suite bathroom with marble counters, custom vanities, soaking tub, marble shower and a large window overlooking the some of Charleston's most iconic buildings. The uppermost floor of the home has two well-appointed guest suites, complete with fully renovated bathrooms with marble-topped vanities and tiled showers. Extending from the dining room is an outdoor courtyard, accessed by a custom folding glass wall system, which is made private by a 15 foot brick wall and provides a great place to relax with lush vegetation, a fountain and a built-in grill and seating. The location is also ideal. The home overlooks Washington Square Park and is within walking distance to galleries, shops, renowned restaurants and more. The home has a rich history and one of its most well-known owners is Miss Laura Bragg--who came to Charleston in 1927 as director of The Charleston Museum and later founded the Charleston Free Library. According to John H. Poston's Buildings of Charleston book, "Bragg was a central figure in the Charleston Renaissance, and her house was the salon for important southern literary figures of the era."
