From the moment you arrive at 82 Pitt Street, you are greeted by the lush gardens, designed by Glen Gardner, and the beautiful outdoor spaces connecting the Caribbean style pool house with the historic Charleston single home. Built from 1841-1843 by two of Charleston’s most prolific brick masons--the Sanders Brothers--this home with its historic cook house occupies an unusually large home site.
82 Pitt Street was completely renovated in 2012 by the current owner who purchased it because of the home’s extensive privacy, urban setting and proximity to the city’s main artery, King Street. Wide open French doors and large windows, accompanied by a plethora of piazzas, create a graceful connection to outdoor living. Historic Charleston Foundation holds exterior easement.
The main house is an elegant combination of rustic meets refined! The first floor features 10-foot ceilings and re-pointed brick fireplaces throughout the Parisian-esque formal living room, stately library and inviting dining room (painted Snap Dragon and Charleston Green).
The cook house was renovated from top to bottom and is the envy of any chef featuring: Wolfe stove, Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, reclaimed oak flooring, and an expansive custom designed 4 inch thick end grain butcher block counter top. This room is the heart of 82 Pitt Street and easily lends itself to entertaining smaller, intimate parties or larger festivities with its doors thrown open to the courtyard featuring bistro lighting and farm table. The over-scaled, brick, wood burning fireplace adds additional character to this already charming kitchen. A second stairwell leads to the cook house’s second floor media room--the perfect place to escape reality.
The master suite, located on the second floor, boasts an exceptionally large piazza overlooking the lush gardens and courtyard. The fireplace adds warmth to an intimate bedroom setting, and the master bath--which is light filled and airy--mirrors the original bead-board ceiling of the dining room below. This bathroom offers a soaking tub and steam shower for optimal relaxation. Off the master bath, is an ample sized walk in closet along with a stack washer and dryer for convenience.
No expense was spared during the renovation of 82 Pitt Street--the bathroom fixtures throughout the home as well as the pool house are Kallista or Waterworks. The second floor also offers a guest bedroom with a cozy fireplace, en suite bath, and adjoining office with a private piazza. The third floor consists of an additional bedroom and full bath with rooftop views.
Stroll over to sip a local rum punch made to perfection at this home’s Oliver Messel style pool house equipped with a Hoshizaki ice maker, Subzero refrigerator and custom teak cabinets. This open air pool house can be used for overflow guests, catering and bartending and even features a full bath, in case the main house is just a little too far... Pool parties are a must, with the generous sized pool featuring a cascading waterfall with depths of 8 feet. Rarely does such a unique opportunity come along!
