Description

Located on the corner of Rutledge Avenue and Wentworth Street in the heart of Harleston Village, this iconic 1854 home exudes history and charm. Known as the Whilden-Hirsch house, the home's facade is defined by a mansard roof sheathed in fish-scale shingles, a large bay window, a wrought-iron gate and several beautiful stained glass windows. The three-story residence has been expertly maintained, preserving beautiful historic features such as original hardwood floors, intricate woodworking, stained glass windows, multiple original fireplaces (2 gas), built-in cabinets, restored original decorative hardware, period light fixtures, 13 foot ceilings, and more. Extensive renovations were completed to the home in 2014 and 2016, with the more recent addition of an elevator with hand-painted cabin. A grand entry foyer welcomes you into the home and transitions into a sunlit formal living room, formal dining room, large office, den and cozy kitchen. Butcher block counters, Viking range and ample cabinet storage define the kitchen which also includes space for a dining area. The primary bedroom suite is located on the second floor and features a spacious bedroom with a fireplace, a sitting room with built-in bookshelves, a walk-in closet with custom storage and two en suite baths, one with beautifully tiled floors and shower. You'll also find two additional bedrooms, a full bath and a laundry room on this floor. The third floor has four additional bedrooms along with two full baths. Outdoor living spaces abound including two piazzas and a beautiful and private backyard complete with a heated saltwater pool, blue stone patio, brick retaining wall, outdoor fireplace and pool house. There are also four off-street parking spaces and you are footsteps from Colonial Lake and walking distance to King Street shops, restaurants and more.
