Lovingly maintained Charleston single house on a quaint historic alley, just 2 blocks from King Street and Broad Street in historic downtown Charleston. Magazine Street is a quiet one-way street with little through traffic, culminating in a view of St. John's Lutheran Church. Homes and gardens are well-kept, and neighbors are friendly. A cheery blue privacy door leads to the first-floor piazza and back to a flagstone patio. A gated driveway provides ample off-street parking. In the back yard, a charming garden is nicely landscaped with tea olives, a fig tree, and even a blooming banana tree. It provides plenty of space for peaceful outdoor living or even a pool. An irrigation system makes for easy maintenance. Inside, living and dining rooms flank a central staircase. The front ro has the original 19th century fireplace as a focal point. Behind is a newer eat-in kitchen with a door to the patio and yard. A stackable laundry closet and attractively remodeled half bath complete the first floor. A separate outdoor entrance leads to a large finished storage room with workshop. The main staircase splits to 2 bedrooms, connected by a nicely updated bath. The front bedroom retains a fireplace. Both access the second story piazza. Original heart pine floorboards upstairs join the parquet and hardwood floors downstairs. To the back of the home, and accessed by its own secondary staircase, is the master suite. It includes another attractively remodeled bath with accessible walk-in shower and a walk-in closet. The home is in great condition, with new heating and air systems on each floor, controlled by smart thermostats. The exterior, including an eye-catching red tin roof, was painted this year. The Harleston Village neighborhood is a highly desirable downtown Charleston location. From 11 Magazine Street, you can walk to schools, shops, restaurants, parks, museums, and several venues for music and the arts.
