Property Description

This beautiful Charleston classic residence at 34 Rutledge was built in 1840 and constructed in the "double-house" style, which gets its name from a central entrance with two sets of rooms on each side per floor. Sunset views! Water views! High ceilings, generous driveway, large yard. The location is exceptional and boasts fine, original historic features. Built on a high raised basement (no flooding), with open piazzas on both first and second floors featuring beautifully-restored French doors with transoms, the house plan allows for maximum views of the Colonial Lake area, exceptional lighting, and wonderful spaces to enjoy evening breezes.Unlike most historic Charleston houses that have piazzas on only one side, this remarkable residence has piazzas on front and rear, adding to the relaxing experience of Charleston's temperate climate. Located off the street, with lovely iron gate, off-street parking and high wall, 34 Rutledge provides the ideal amount of privacy. Originally crafted with high-ceilings and ornate wainscoting, mantels, columns and staircases, the house has been remodeled with such outstanding features as custom storm doors and windows, leaded-glass cupboards, and a modern kitchen that wraps around the historic brick chimney. The double parlor and equally grand dining room make entertaining easy. The house includes a detached building with half bath and kitchen that adds to the endless possibilities. In addition, the copper standing seam roof with characteristic green patina is perfect for our weather. Of the physical attributes of 34 Rutledge, one noteworthy quality is its remarkable location. Not only one of Charleston's most historic areas, Harleston Village is one of the city's most private and pedestrian-friendly. Adjacent to the famed South of Broad district and a short walk from the heralded Battery and Four Corners of Law, this western section of the lower Charleston peninsula is known for its slow-paced serenity and sunsets!
