Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Description

The Chancognie House at 5 Alexander Street sits in the heart of Ansonborough Charleston's most charming walk to everything neighborhood. Built ca.1813 this three-story home benefits from Tuscan columned piazzas on two levels with sunny southern exposures and wide plank heart pine floors throughout. A three-story frame kitchen house separately metered for utilities connects seamlessly to the main house kitchen through a French door ''hyphen''. This sensitively renovated and maintained property offers the best in flexibility with its 3-BR 2-BA main house (2500 SF) and 3-BR 1.5-BA cottage (1300 SF) created from the property's original kitchen house. Both homes open into a privately gated and brick-walled Charleston garden with brick walkways fountain pond generous seating and dining areas with separate private entrances to each of the residences. A sunny breakfast nook opens through French doors directly into the garden patio from the kitchen of the main house. Although currently used as two residences the design readily provides complete flexibility for use as a single 6-BR residence. Both houses retain their original floor-plan and the main house retains much of its historic finishes including cornices and mantels with simple dentil/reeded paneling high ceilings and a light-filled southern orientation with 9-over-9 windows. The kitchen house retains its unique original brick fireplace ovens and stairway. You will find ten fireplaces throughout the property. Nestled at a positive elevation just steps from Charleston's Gaillard arts venue the tree-lined half-block cul-de-sac just off Laurens Street offers the best of privacy and historic charm all within easy walking distances to many of Charleston's most desirable dining shopping and entertainment options. The Historic Charleston Foundation holds an exterior conservation easement.
