The Carriage house is composed of a 2 bedroom, 2 full bath apartment on the first floor, and a second floor apartment of 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. Both apartments have full kitchens and large living areas. There is also a storage building of approximately 230 sf located between the main house and the back house. This is an amazing opportunity to purchase a grand property that has not been on the market for close to 60 years. It was purchased by the Diocese of Charleston around 1960 and has been used as office space since that time. The property has had some modifications including an elevator servicing the 3 main floors, (The Elevator is currently non-operational), an updated HVAC, fire and electrical systems. While some of the house retains the historic details, a good portion of the home that has been used as office space will require renovation. As you enter onto the front porch you will notice the coffered ceiling. Once inside you will be greeted by the grand staircase along with the foyer and ornate patterned Parquet floors with mahogany inlays that continue into the main room on the front of the house. This room also includes an impressive fireplace mantel, crown molding, and detailed chair railing throughout. The ceiling height on the first floor is approximately 10' 10". The rest of the first floor contains a more formal sitting room, which flows into a beautiful ballroom. The grand ballroom boasts a curved wall on one end with 3 sets of French doors leading to the patio overlooking the gardens. As you continue through the ballroom you will find an approximately 350 sf vault. The second floor has the same layout as the first, with a sitting room on the front of the house along with access out to the second floor porch. This floor contains several more rooms used as office space. As you head toward the back of the house you will come into a room that contains a spiral staircase that allows access up to a loft area featuring exposed brick walls. The third floor has less square footage than the first and second floors and features a large room on the front of the house with fireplace and two other large rooms toward the back of the house. There is also access to what is now a roof, but may be able to be utilized as a 3rd floor porch. The fourth floor contains two rooms with dormers and a half bath in between the rooms. Please see floor plans included in the listing.
