44 South Battery
Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Description

This grand South Battery residence is composed of a 4 bedroom, 4 full and 2 half bath main house with water views from the top 2 floors, a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath kitchen house with grandfathered Bed & Breakfast license, and a partially finished heated and cooled ground floor. The apx. 1,358 sf ground floor, included in total square footage, would make a fabulous wine cellar, workout room or artists' studio, and includes a half bath.Constructed circa 1835 by sisters Anne and Catherine Johnston, this three-story plantation-style home with attached kitchen house was later purchased by General Benjamin Huger Rutledge after the Civil War. The Johnston House retains its original wood picket fence on masonry piers and carved lattice gates, a rare find in many Charleston neighborhoods.
The stunning renovation was beautifully designed by Glenn Keyes, with many original details of the home preserved. The home includes 10 fireplaces, all of which have been re-lined. Extraordinarily beautiful marble is abundantly distributed throughout the kitchens, bathrooms, and even the laundry room. The first floor of the main house is grand, boasting a formal dining room, formal living room, family room, and sunny chef's kitchen, all with high, 13 foot ceilings, original moldings, and exquisite ceiling medallions. The formal living room and dining room include walk through windows opening to the grand piazza at the front of the home. Ride the elevator or walk up either the front or rear staircase to the second floor to find the master suite with gas fireplace, his and hers closets, and grand bath. The master bath boasts a double vanity, clawfoot tub, oversized shower and fireplace with remote controlled gas coal logs. A guest bedroom with gas log fireplace and en-suite bath, laundry room, and a sunny piazza complete the second floor. The top floor hosts two more guest bedrooms, each with en-suite bath, and a piazza with stunning harbor views. A sun deck overlooking the backyard is accessed through the east bedroom.

The kitchen house, which can be used as a grand mother-in-law suite, reserved for overnight guests, or legally rented nightly with the active bed and breakfast license, was just as beautifully renovated as the main home. Original large cooking fireplaces, painted wood beam ceilings, a full Kitchen, 2-3 bedrooms, and 2 full baths make up this lovely welcoming and bright space.

The meticulous garden at the rear of the home was designed by Sheila Wertimer, whose original plans included a pool. No detail was overlooked and this amazing property has gone from historic to historically beautiful. Original heart pine flooring throughout the home, a three-tier piazza with water views, kitchen house with legal bed and breakfast license, and prime location just steps to White Point Garden make this gorgeous historic home a must see!
