Rare opportunity to own an exquisite piece of Charleston history! Perched on high ground along one of Charleston's most beloved and private streets, 9 Orange Street (One of the ''Simons Tenements'') was constructed in grand pre-revolutionary Georgian style c1770. Named as ''Valuable to the City'', this stately home sits on a double-width lot with a beautifully private gated drive and side piazza offering a lushly landscaped entrance to this South of Broad estate. You will be immediately struck by the Lowcountry Eden that surrounds this historic property... beautiful trees and shrubs surround a walled croquet lawn and the private rear lawn. A covered outdoor sitting area and a bluestone dining patio invite you to enjoy the best of Charleston outdoor living. From the side porch, enter (cont.into the spacious foyer with the formal living and dining rooms to either side. These primary downstairs rooms are adorned with historic period mantles and trim details that give this wonderfully updated home an old soul. Natural light abounds with southern exposure down the length of the house, which is a striking feature of the kitchen and its connected sitting room. Luxurious marble countertops, beamed ceiling, La Cornue range, Sub Zero refrigerator and other high end details welcome you into this custom chef's kitchen, which flows seamlessly into the vaulted sitting room. The kitchen sitting room is a stunning architectural space, with two stories of windows and elegant French doors connecting this comfortable room to the garden. A wall of custom cabinetry provides space for a TV and books, and ample storage.

The second floor landing connects the primary suite to the chic upper drawing room, with both rooms characterized by historic trim details that make this house so special. The drawing room is a perfect private owners' retreat with potential as a library or office. The spacious primary bedroom has tall French doors which bring floor-to-ceiling light and connection to the upper porch, with a fireplace and mantel detail anchoring the other side of the room. The renovated primary bath has a walk-in closet with ample custom cabinetry, marble surfaces, Waterworks fixtures, dressing table, double vanity, freestanding tub and marble tiled shower, and there is a door to the private rear section of the porch for an inviting outdoor retreat connected to the suite.

Two luxurious guest suites occupy the third floor, with one full bath located off the landing and the other ensuite. These rooms are large and comfortable with charming beamed ceilings and ample closet space with built-in drawers. The fourth floor offers an additional bedroom with a half bath on the landing, and a bonus room that could be used as an office or storage space. This house also has a rare usable and dry basement that is currently configured partly as a laundry area and partly as a wine storage room (not counted in square footage).

9 Orange Street offers an unparalleled opportunity to have all of the historic charm and patina that Charleston can offer, while also providing an enormous amount of private outdoor space and off street parking. Homes on this hidden street rarely come to the market so do not miss a chance to see it!
