Built in 1831, the Jonah M. Venning House is one of the oldest Greek Revival homes in Charleston. Situated on the highest ground in Historic Downtown, this Lowcountry plantation-style home offers street presence highlighted by its wide lot, double porches, forged ironwork and grand marble staircase leading to the porch. The entry hall is flanked by a gracious living room on one side and formal dining room on the other. Single planks of heart-pine flooring span from wall to wall with original high ceilings and plaster cornice moldings. A recent one-story rear addition with large modern kitchen and breakfast room are nestled in between the original kitchen house (now a guest house) and main house. The upper two bedroom levels include four large light filled rooms, each with four windows, a fireplace and en-suite bathrooms. The English basement with exposed heart pine beams, joists and brickwork provides guest / live-in quarters or office space. A new garden wall was added to give privacy to the kitchen house and define more of a Charleston courtyard. There .23 acre lot affords ample parking and room for expansion.

Two blocks from Marion Square Park, Saturday farmers market and near many restaurants, this grand home offers walk-to-town convenience while also in a calm residential neighborhood.
