Built in 1903

Iconic southern charm abounds on Shem Creek in this historic (circa 1903) home. This remarkable estate presents the very best of historic Charleston living blended with modern upgrades and appointments, set in an unbeatable marsh front location. Positioned on nearly an acre of land and spanning over 3,610 square feet, the property features a total of four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms in the primary residence and an additional fully detached carriage house with a one bedroom apartment. Greeted by a white picket fence and lush front yard, your oversized front porch is the perfect location to sit on a rocking chair and watch the fishermen and neighbors come and go toward the docks. Upon entering the house you are flanked bya formal sitting room and office in the historic section of the
home. Continuing through the home past the guest bedroom and laundry is the significant recent expansion which accentuates the property, curated by local architect Linda Balzac. No expense was spared in creating this large addition which features a chef's kitchen with spacious island set amidst a great room that benefits from large vaulted ceilings with dramatic beams and shiplap displaying strategic craftsmanship and design. The great room overlooks Shem Creek with sweeping views through the impact rated windows and doors
installed throughout the home. Wake up to views of Shem Creek from the primary suite on the main level, with sliding doors to a private deck. Also located on the first floor is a guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Upstairs there are two more bedrooms with a shared bathroom as part of the renovated, but historic structure. The whole home benefits from lush landscape, marsh views with an abundance of light with easterly exposure in the front and westerly exposure in the back.

Outside, the spacious porch features dramatic marsh views and a
wood burning fireplace. A private courtyard is the serene hub connecting the house, porch, and garage. The oversized 2 car garage includes a one bedroom apartment above and marsh front artist's studio below. The lot is meticulously maintained and a certified wildlife habitat - perfect for a pool! Across the marsh you will see sunsets, birds, boats, and an endless assortment of wildlife! The property boasts 3 covered porches, a deck and courtyard, 6 off-street parking spots, wood-burning outdoor fireplace (gas inside), hard-wired surround sound, landscape lighting and much, much more.

The location is conveniently superb...5 miles to peninsular Charleston and 4 miles to Sullivan's Island. Staying local has so many walkable options: Stroll to Pitt Street bridge or Edwards Park. Lunch at the Post House Inn followed by a scoop of ice cream at Pitt St Pharmacy. Walk Shem Creek Park boardwalk for dolphin sightings and a cocktail at a Shem Creek restaurant. Enjoy the quaint Village Library. Play tennis, basketball, or tennis at the Royall courts. Purchase seafood
directly from the shrimp docks and vegetables from the farmers market to cook in the privacy and serenity of your home.

Shem Creek has always been a working creek and maintains that history today. Despite changing tides through the centuries, Shem Creek still provides a playground and a sense of place. It's the town's signature  a picture-perfect place that will always capture the heart and soul of Mt Pleasant.
