Are you seeking space to spread out and tranquil convenient living in Historic Charleston? Come visit 8 Gadsden Street. Nestled in Harleston Village, just one block to Colonial Lake and its family-friendly amenities, convenient to schools, medical services, the marina and restaurants, this home is a marvelous example of a well-preserved Side-Hall Charleston Single, replete with historic details, yet totally updated for modern living. Most importantly, it offers special features that are sought after in 2021 - expansive private outdoor space on over a quarter acre, a separate office and plenty of off-street parking (enough for 4 cars). Entering through the gracious first floor foyer, you'll find that both the dining room and living room are of grand scale and ceiling height, with heart pinefloors, original fireplaces and piazza access. Open the doors to catch the breezes off the Ashley River, and expand your entertaining space outdoors. The living room flows through to the updated kitchen (with working fireplace!) and wet bar, which lead through double french doors to the most special part of this property - the backyard. An urban oasis with an expansive lawn and mature trees, it is ample enough for a pool and pool house or garage. Enjoy the outdoors with the lovely two-level deck featuring a lounge and grill area, as well as one for dining under the stars. Just off the deck, via its own entrance, is the charming attached apartment (currently used as a home office - but in the past has garnered a rent of $1200 per month) featuring a bedroom, full kitchen and bath. Back inside the main home, up the grand staircase on the second floor you'll find the master suite which easily holds a king-sized bed and furniture, and has a walk-in closet, lovely en-suite bath and piazza access. Lazy summer days swinging in the hammock anyone? Additionally on this floor, there are two bedrooms, a full bath and laundry, and a bonus room currently set up as a "Friend's" or guest bedroom. This could easily be a home-school space, office, workout room, artists studio or dressing room, and it also has access to the piazza! The current owners re-coated the roof and painted the exterior siding at the end of 2020, so the home is turn-key and ready to go.
