Constructed circa 1740, the Charles Cotesworth Pinckney House, one of the Othniel Beale Houses, has beautiful harbor views and sits on historic Rainbow Row. It is just steps to the Battery, Waterfront Park, shopping, and dining. This historic home, considered Valuable to City and believed to have withstood the fire of 1778, stands out with a curvilinear gable roof, egg and dart molded cornices, and original wide plank heart pine floors throughout. The first floor has a charming kitchen with a swing door opening to the sitting room. The sitting room offers many original features including, painted cypress paneling, bookshelves and built-in cabinets with hand wrought HL hinges, early delft tile surrounding the fireplace, and a large bay window overlooking the manicured garden. On the second floor, a drawing room overlooks East Bay Street, and a library with beautiful original cypress paneling and the same early delft tile around the fireplace overlooks the garden. The master suite with walk-in closet and private bath is on the third floor, and is greeted each morning by incredible sunrises overlooking the harbor. The top floor boasts even more amazing harbor and sunrise views, 2 guest bedrooms, and a shared full bath.
