Description

First floor condo in the historic 1840 former High School of Charleston, one of only 4 units in this iconic Ansonborough building. Enjoy the ideal pied-a-terre in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, SC, close to shopping, dining, parks, churches, and attractions. The stuccoed facade and grand 2-story portico with 6 massive Corinthian columns make 55 Society Street truly a stand-out amongst Charleston architecture. It served as the peninsula's high school until 1881 and was later converted to condominiums in 1984.Condo A is located in the back of the building, away from the street. Enter though a charming brick courtyard surrounded by a curved stucco privacy wall. This outdoor space includes an iron gate and garden area, plus outside storage. It's the perfect place to enjoythe morning sun, an afternoon meal, or entertain guests on a pleasant Lowcountry evening. Inside, the great room has soaring 14' ceilings, plenty of natural light, hardwood floors, a fireplace, and exposed brick and architectural elements. The 2 large bedrooms have new paint and carpeting, and both are flooded with natural light from oversized 10' windows. The primary bedroom has an en suite bath and transomed French doors that open to the patio. The secondary bedroom utilizes a full hall bath. The compact kitchen is ready for remodeling and modernizing (may we suggest opening up the wall to the great room with a breakfast bar?) and includes a pantry and full-sized laundry closet. A hidden bonus is a huge historic brick barrel-vaulted storage room that would make an ideal wine room for the oenophile. One off-street parking space is included in the back lot. The beautifully landscaped common areas make for pleasant views out the windows.
