With uninterrupted views of the Ashley River and the scenic tidal marsh, an elegantly appointed interior, and gorgeous outdoor living spaces, this stunning home has it all. Designed with entertaining in mind, the flowing floor plan offers a combination of sunlit interior rooms and expansive outdoor living spaces overlooking the marsh, including three porches and a large rooftop deck that provides breathtaking, unobstructed, 360-degree panoramic views of the Ashley River, Ravenel Bridge and downtown Charleston rooftops. The home's location places you in the center of downtown, within walking distance of the Ashley River, Hampton Park, and popularlocal restaurants.A spacious and inviting covered front porch offers views of the marsh and provides a great place to welcome guests while enjoying a cool drink, a meal al fresco or a riverfront breeze. Upon entering the home, you'll notice the exquisite attention to detail with wainscoting, crown molding, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, surround sound and more throughout the home. The thoughtfully designed floor plan transitions seamlessly from the entryway into the living room, where you will notice custom features including built-in bookshelves, a fireplace, and wainscoting, which create a warm and cozy space to relax. The adjoining kitchen offers plenty of room for entertaining family and friends with a spacious center island with seating for 8 and luxurious appointments including granite counters, custom cabinets, stainless appliances and more.

Marble floors, a coffered ceiling, a soaking tub, tiled shower and a custom vanity enhance the en suite bath to create a spa-like atmosphere. There are four additional bedroom suites throughout the home's three floors, perfect for guests with their own luxuriously appointed en suite bathroom and many with access to one of the home's outdoor living spaces.
