You have just discovered one of the most outstanding beachfront properties in Charleston history! This incredible 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath property shines with iconic views that complement the luxury of this truly one of a kind property located at 2 Concord Street. The only single family residence downtown with a private dock reaching 240 feet made of fixed concrete with 100 foot floater, and a boat lift with 20,000 lb capacity. Completely renovated in 2010, the original structure was once a degaussing station for the Navy. No detail was overlooked in the dramatic transformation to this remarkable estate which consists of a main house, guest house, and existing dock! The main residence sits gracefully atop concrete pilings uniquely positioned above the water to optimize the unsurpassed views of Charleston Harbor, Fort Sumter, The Yorktown, Ravenel Bridge, and the Historic Charleston Peninsula. Magnificent craftsmanship, detailing, and the finest appointments are to be found throughout this trophy property. Upon entering the first level you are greeted by a stunning formal entryway as well as a grand staircase. A gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, living room, powder room, climate controlled wine room, and library comprise the first floor. The library provides a peaceful retreat with a gas log fireplace, built-in shelving, and hand detailed cypress paneling. The second and third levels showcase antique pine floors with the bathroom floors being reclaimed tile. The second story is where the master suite is located as well as two additional bedrooms with en-suite baths and a fourth bedroom that is currently used as a fitness room. Each room is oriented to capture breathtaking waterfront views. Completing the 4,689 square foot main house is the third level where the sitting room and bar area are found. Ideal for entertaining, the sitting room features a programmable window shade system that captures panoramic 360 degree views with the touch of a button. From the third story terrace, enjoy watching sailboats, recreational watercrafts, and wildlife as they pass through the Harbor during the day and the majestic glows of the city lights reflecting off the water at night. The three car garage spans 1,100 square feet. The guest residence above the garage is a spacious 1,234 square feet featuring antique chestnut floors throughout. Two bedrooms with en-suite baths, a gourmet kitchen, laundry facility, and private terrace are also located within.
