A unique hidden gem in the middle of Mount Pleasant! Charming brick home on a rare 1.26 acre lot framed by the canopies of majestic grand oaks, offers the feel of remote country living in the heart of it all and with no HOA! The current residents are only the second owners who immediately fell in love with the home’s allure and rich history. Constructed of bricks from the demolition of 9 Water Street in Charleston, the property consists of three combined lots that back up to a Confederate bunker, with easy access to the walking paths of Fort Palmetto Park and its observation tower. Enjoy a sense of privacy & tranquility right in your backyard on the secluded brick patio surrounded by stunning greenery & wildlife. The home is flooded with natural light, with new hurricane-rated windows (2023), and hardwoods throughout most of the home. Along the rear of the home is the spacious family room with a wood-burning brick fireplace and outside access to the beautiful brick patio. The adjacent breakfast area, surrounded by windows, flows into the updated kitchen with newer appliances and a combined pantry/laundry room with additional rear entrance. Off the kitchen at the front of the home is a separate dining room with a window seat, which flows into the large living room with huge picture window. The two downstairs bedrooms with full bath are located on the opposite side of the home. Upstairs offers two additional bedrooms, full bath, storage room, and easy entry attic storage.

The home has been lovingly cared for throughout its ownership. The heating system is a geothermal heat pump which is economical to run, and recent improvements include new hardiplank siding (2022), new storm doors (2023), and new tankless water heater (2021).

This property provides endless opportunities. It is located in Charleston County, with no HOA restrictions. The neighborhood is rich in history. The earthworks behind the property are the remains of the 1861 fortifications built along a 2.5 mile Confederate defensive line, which ran from Boone Hall to Fort Palmetto to defend Mt Pleasant. Fort Palmetto Park is just steps away with meandering walking trails which end at an observation tower overlooking the marsh and water. The height of the tower replicates the height advantage that Confederate pickets had in watching the waterway for the enemy.

Three combined lots, a charming home, stately grand oaks, lush foliage, and rich history – all within minutes of shopping, dining, downtown Charleston (20 min), and local beaches (10 min). Truly a hidden oasis in the heart of Mt Pleasant!
