Chapel Street Luxury Retreat
Completely rehabilitated in 2014, this grand home on Chapel Street has been returned to its original glory. This house, with its red roof and brand new Breach Inlet blue paint, fronts Chapel Street Fountain Park, with its beautifully landscaped garden and majestic fountain. Benches and a manicured lawn provide a great picnic spot directly across the street from the house. The available apartment is a two level space, taking up the 2nd and 3rd floors and overlooking Fountain Park. The 2nd level front porch is private to this apartment and offers beautiful views of fountain and the neighborhood – you can hear the fountain water feature from the porch and from inside the house.
The Chapel Street front door entrance opens to the original, grand mahoghany staircase at the main foyer, and leads up to the completely rehabilitated kitchen and living area – a large, open space, with custom cabinetry, honed carrera marble countertops, and new stainless steel appliances. There are two original fireplaces (now reactivated) on this main floor, one in the open kitchen/living room, and another in the sitting room just off the kitchen. There is also a half bathroom off the kitchen.
Another original mahoghany staircase leads up to the 2 bedrooms and 2 private bathrooms on the 3rd level, as well as the washer/dryer utility room. The charming third floor is bright and white, with tongue and groove paneling on the gabled ceilings. These two bedrooms have privacy from the main living quarters on the second floor. However, there is also a sitting room off the kitchen (on the lower, main level), complete with original fireplace and pocket doors (all restored and reactivated) – this sitting room also transitions as a guest bedroom.
Chapel Street and the Mazyk-Wraggborough neighborhood are a true treasure downtown, offering relief from busy Charleston foot and car traffic, yet still a stone’s throw from all Charleston’s iconic attractions. The heart of King Street shopping and restaurants are only two blocks West. Some of Charleston’s best restaurants are right on the walk toward King Street. The Museum District is only 1 block west. East Bay Street is only 2 blocks East – providing incredibly easy and direct access to the Ravenel Bridge to cross to Mt. Pleasant and the Barrier island Beaches, avoiding downtown traffic!
The design reflects meticulous attention to detail and a comprehensive aesthetic- the palette is almost beachy, with very light sand tans, original wood floors, white walls with beadboard trim, and grey and silver accents in lighting design and tile design. A very neutral, beautiful palette. Original heart pine floors remain throughout the entire apartment and have been completely refinished. All fixtures and mechanicals are brand new.
