- Leize Gaillard


Opportunity abounds on Murray Boulevard home, on the market for the first time ever.Murray Boulevard has been a premier Charleston address since the area was developed in the 1910s and beyond, admired for its stately homes, water views, and pleasant cross breezes. With the City currently investing millions of dollars in a major reconstruction of a new seawall and promenade (Phase 1 complete, Phase 2 nearing completion), Murray Boulevard stands to maintain its status as one of the most coveted addresses in historic downtown Charleston. This home has had only one owner in its 57-year history, having been lovingly designed and constructed in 1964 by a family with deep Charleston roots. At the time of construction, the owner's uncle was five years into serving a 16-year tenure as Mayor of the City of Charleston. The home is Colonial Revival meets American Foursquare, and the result is a pleasingly symmetric home that is highly livable in its current configuration yet also easily adaptable to floor plan changes to suit the needs and wants of the next owner. The main floor consists of a foyer/central hallway, flanked by a formal dining room and kitchen on one side and formal dining and den on the other. At the end of the hall to the rear of the home is a powder room servicing the downstairs. The second floor consists of four bedrooms and two baths (one en-suite and one shared hall bath), with the master bedroom, bathroom, and one secondary bedroom offering lovely views of the Ashley River. The upstairs floor plan could be reconfigured to allow for a larger master suite with en-suite bath, a second bedroom with en-suite bath, and a third bedroom with hall or en-suite bath for a total of three beds and three-and-a-half baths. Both stories have generous ceiling heights and hardwood floors throughout. The .19-acre lot is fully fenced. There is a driveway for off-street parking (could stack multiple cars), and this leads to a 598 sq. ft detached garage structure in the rear, which is part one-car garage/workshop and part pool house. Additionally, there is patio and back deck which overlook a 512 sq. ft. pool surrounded by garden beds. If you have your sights on a manageable renovation project with excellent equity potential in a superior historic Charleston location, look no further than 84 Murray Boulevard.
