Opportunity knocks at 1157 King Street. Located in historic downtown Charleston and just minutes from MUSC, the Citadel, and College of Charleston, this bungalow-style home is a licensed Airbnb-approved income producing property that is currently setup as two separate apartments. This home can easily be converted back to a single family home. Each unit has one generously sized bedroom and one bathroom. Unit one has a full-sized kitchen and unit two has a kitchenette that can easily accommodate full-sized appliances. Both units boast high ceilings well equipped with ceiling fans throughout. A partially floored, well-lit attic provides a ton of extra storage space.The exterior of 1157 King Street offers a newly paved driveway and accommodates parking for up to four cars.Additional outdoor storage includes a spacious 11'x18' workshop with 40amp service and the possibility to convert to a studio, garage or carriage house. All structural framing was replaced with pressure treated lumber. The roof and two sides were replaced with galvanized material while the remaining two sides were left for the rustic appearance. The roof was replaced in July 2020 and offers a transferable lifetime warranty. Unlike many houses on the peninsula, this house is NOT in a flood zone. Grounds: When the driveway was poured, a concrete pad was also added in anticipation of a garden shed for storage of lawnmower and other garden tools. The driveway was designed with a one-foot elevation drop from the workshop/carriage house to the sidewalk. This was to assure rainwater would run out to the street and not back up into the yard. During the driveway pour, the floor of the shed was also raised to prevent flooding during hurricanes and heavy downpours. Outside of the home, world class restaurants are within a short distance including Edmund's Oast, Leon's Oyster Shop, Home Team BBQ, Park Cafe and Moe's Crosstown Tavern. Also close by is Hampton Park, The Citadel and the proposed Low-Line walking trail.
