What We Love

Charm and privacy defines this historic cottage hidden at the end of a beautiful brick driveway.

- Ann Daughtridge


This charming historic cottage is privately situated away from the street down a long brick driveway. Surrounded by a garden and beautiful ivy-covered brick walls, the home's open floor plan takes full advantage of living indoors and out with the addition of two sunny south facing piazzas. Inside, a cozy living room and dining room share a gas fireplace. The spacious kitchen features French doors that open to the garden and an al fresco dining space. Upstairs, the master suite is filled with natural light and has sliding glass doors that provide access to the upstairs piazza, as well as a small sliding wall which makes this space very open and airy. Additionally, the roof was hydro-sealed in 2020 and the downstairs has two mini-split cooling systems. Located South of Broad, 12 Council Street is just a short walk from the Battery, Colonial Lake and King Street shopping and restaurants.
