Agent Remarks

First time on the market since 1971! Elegant Ansonborough home built in 1847 by Charleston industrialist, William Lebby. Unique period cast iron fence and gate mark the entrance to the property and its long 3-car driveway. Painted brick exterior and slate roof maintain the home's original character. The foyer and gracious front room flow nicely into the large dining room with hallway and piazza connections. Well-preserved period details include beautiful floors, moldings, and mantles. Double piazzas are tucked privately behind the front room, with views overlooking the large walled garden containing one of Charleston's largest fig trees and numerous large camellias. The second level of the main house contains a large guest bedroom with en-suite bath at the front, and a generous master suite located in the privacy of the rear. The third floor dormer rooms include a guest bedroom and half bath, and an office equipped with an antique tavern table that conveys with the house. The original 2-story kitchen house (separately metered) is attached to the rear wall of the main house but not internally connected. Currently configured as a guesthouse with living room and kitchen down, and large bedroom suite above. The kitchen house retains its period feel with exposed brick walls and wood beams – numerous options for connecting the kitchen house to main house or continuing its use as a separate space. This property has been meticulously maintained and is perfectly poised for updates. A rare opportunity to move into the heart of Ansonborough with off-street parking and high/dry property!
