The grandeur of 90 East Bay, one of the rare surviving original wharf buildings of the 18th century in the city of Charleston, becomes evident while standing outside the grand entrance and turning the brass knob on the double French mahogany doors, encased in the original storefront trim, surround and beneath an intricately carved transom that fills the entry with light. 90 East Bay street sits as the literal cornerstone to the best that historic Charleston has to offer in the South of Broad Neighborhood. Lying one block from the harbor and within view of the harbor it is minutes away from the famous pineapple fountain at waterfront park. While the exterior restoration has remained true to the original building that lined Adgers Wharf in 1781, the interior has been painstakingly restored to preserve unique features of its past while bringing in the best of modern living. The foyer has built in double coat and storage closets and newly installed heart of pine floors. Walk through the entrance to the grand salon and you’ll be witness to the finest entertainment and event space in all of Charleston. A banquet hall/recreation room/entertainment room/concert hall/kitchen area suitable for entertaining 30-50 guests, that spans 22 ft by 37 ft in dimension with soaring 16-foot-high domed ceiling and surrounded by near floor to ceiling heavily paneled windows on 3 sides with magnificent floor to ceiling draperies softening, deepening, and warming this enriching space. Listen to the black grand piano in one corner. No dining or entertaining option is too much with a 4 ft x 13 ft granite banquet prep/kitchen counter. Pour yourself or your guests a cocktail and relax on the sofa and side chairs in the seating area. 90 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29401 Read a book in the reading area. Dine with your entire family or guests in the extraordinary dining table. The kitchen is also equipped with double Sub-Zero refrigerators, 4 freezer drawers, 2 additional refrigeration drawers for drinks or appetizers, double Miele ovens, Dacor center island range top, double dishwashers, a warming drawer or Dacor microwave drawer and paneled Siematic kitchen cabinetry. This is a unique, one-of-a-kind living/entertainment space not to be matched in Charleston in its grandeur or vistas. At the end of the evening, once your guests/family have retired to their own living quarters in separate areas of the house, you’ll walk back to the luxurious master suite. Enter the massive, paneled doors off the Grand Salon into the transitional room/entry hall that opens on one side into the master bath and on the other to the bedroom itself. Then retire to the luxurious bedroom with king size bed, soaring ceilings, cascading floor to ceiling draperies, rich fabrics, and personalized Siematic dressing cabinets. If you like, on awakening you can open your windows in bed and gaze out onto Rainbow Row. The master bath is highlighted by massive floor to ceiling tiled shower with marble and granite materials and Waterworks shower fixtures. 90 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29401 Next to the second-floor guest suite and adjacent to the Grand Salon is a whimsical powder room lined with fashionable Schumacher fern print wallpaper for the comfort of your guests. Also on the second floor, tucked privately away from the living areas and far removed from the Master suite, you’ll find yet another guest living quarters with bed, seating area, Siematic dressing closets and full en suite bath. The theme of high 15-foot ceilings, tall luxurious drapery lined windows fitting of a fine hotel also carry through the design of this oasis. As you return to the first floor and foyer, headed to the Recreation room, you again see the living history that has survived all the critical historical events this country has faced, and which Charleston was often at the center of, through our history. The recreation room includes a home theater area with large screen TV and sound for watching movies, binging your favorite TV series, or watching sports.
