Recently renovated with a two-car garage and Charleston harbor views, 78 East Bay is situated on the prominent corner of Vanderhorst Wharf and right behind the pleasant city park, Hazel Parker. Originally constructed on high ground in 1800 by Governor Arnoldus Vanderhorst, the location was once referred to as Vanderhorst Row. This extraordinary central townhome was designed in the Neoclassical style and boasts historic character including impressive brick work and marble detailing. Upon entering, you will be welcomed by the living room with ample seating perfect for family and guests. The home features beautiful hardwood floors throughout, impressive moldings, custom built-ins and soaring ceilings. With seamless flow, you will make your way to the grand dining room and then to a beautifully updated chef's kitchen that overlooks the backyard oasis.

Inside, make your way to the second floor where the master suite offers a gracious seating area, gas fireplace and a walk-in closet. The en-suite bath features a large walk-in shower and a dual vanity. Down the hall is the "river room" equipped with a wet bar, ice machine and floor-to ceiling-windows that allow you to take in views of the park and Cooper River. The third floor is made up of two generously sized guest rooms, each with their own bathroom, and a laundry room. The top floor is a flex space, perfect for an at home office, exercise room, game room or additional bedroom with a closet and bathroom. 78 East Bay exudes great historical significance paired with modern day conveniences---top-of-the-line appliances, abundant storage and a two-car garage.
