Description

The John Blake House, Circa 1800, is an L-shaped, two and a half story black cypress and heart pine frame structure that sits on a high masonry foundation on a double lot. This sturdy post revolutionary, Category 3 home is classified as ''Valuable'' in the book ''This is Charleston,'' and, according to John Poston in ''The Buildings of Charleston,'' survived the natural disasters of the 19th century that many surrounding buildings of the same period did not. Behind the wrought iron gates lies an old parterre, restored in the 1980s and separated from a manicured lawn by an archway. The first floor piazza overlooks the old parterre and is accessed from the main entry. The interior has an old world feel throughout, boasting many original historic details, including wide plank floors, old doors, dental molding, and antique marble-surround fireplaces with intricately detailed mantles. The traditional entry stair hall is flanked by a formal living room on the right and a formal dining room to the left. The dining room leads into a cozy yet spacious den and then the modern kitchen. Complete with La Cornue oven, the gourmet Kitchen seamlessly blends with the historic character of the home. The den also provides easy access to the rear parking pad and 2-car garage. A generous half bath completes the first floor. On the second level, an entire wing is devoted to the generous master suite, complete with a fireplace, dual walk-in closets and a private bath with two sinks. Two spacious guest suites, each with a private bath, are also found on the second level. The laundry room, located in the glass-enclosed second floor piazza, is easily accessed from the master suite, the hallway, or one of the guest suites. On the top level of the home, find the third guest suite, which includes a private bathroom and a separate sitting room or office. With tasteful modern updates that compliment the historic details, ample off-street parking, two beautiful secret gardens, and a desirable location at the corner of S Battery and Legare Street, near White Point Garden and the harbor, this historic home truly has it all. It has even been featured in several publications including Traditional Home, Southern Accents, Flower Magazine, the WSJ, International Marketing platforms for Urban Electric, and may have one of the most instagrammed kitchens in Charleston.
