Quintessential Lowcountry living is epitomized in this magnificent three-story home in the Longborough neighborhood of downtown Charleston. With uninterrupted views of the Ashley River and the scenic tidal marsh, an elegantly appointed interior, and gorgeous outdoor living spaces, this stunning home has it all. Designed with entertaining in mind, the flowing floor plan offers a combination of sunlit interior rooms and expansive outdoor living spaces overlooking the marsh, including three porches and a large rooftop deck that provides breathtaking, unobstructed, 360-degree panoramic views of the Ashley River, Ravenel Bridge and downtown Charleston rooftops. The home's location places you in the center of downtown, within walking distance of the Ashley River, Hampton Park, and popularlocal restaurants.

A spacious and inviting covered front porch offers views of the marsh and provides a great place to welcome guests while enjoying a cool drink, a meal al fresco or a riverfront breeze. Upon entering the home, you'll notice the exquisite attention to detail with wainscoting, crown molding, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, surround sound and more throughout the home. The thoughtfully designed floor plan transitions seamlessly from the entryway into the living room, where you will notice custom features including built-in bookshelves, a fireplace, and wainscoting, which create a warm and cozy space to relax. The adjoining kitchen offers plenty of room for entertaining family and friends with a spacious center island with seating for 8 and luxurious appointments including granite counters, custom cabinets, stainless appliances and more. For more formal gatherings, head into the dining room where you will enjoy fine details including wainscoting, a tray ceiling and large windows.

Escape to the large primary bedroom suite, a truly private retreat with a waterfront porch (perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee) and a separate living space with a fireplace and built-in seating (ideal for curling up with a good book at the end of the day). Marble floors, a coffered ceiling, a soaking tub, tiled shower and a custom vanity enhance the en suite bath to create a spa-like atmosphere.

There are four additional bedroom suites throughout the home's three floors, perfect for guests with their own luxuriously appointed en suite bathroom and many with access to one of the home's outdoor living spaces. Movie enthusiasts will delight in the home theatre room on the uppermost floor--being sold furnished with 8 club chairs, blackout drapes and a professional projector system for your viewing pleasure. To make preparing movie snacks easier, the large room also offers a second full kitchen complete with granite counters, stainless appliances, tile backsplash and ample cabinets. A wide deck overlooking the water is also accessible from the space, and not to be missed is the large rooftop deck--a unique find in downtown Charleston and the perfect place to enjoy a sunset over the water with 360-degree views of the Ashley River, Ravenel Bridge and downtown rooftops.
