One-of-a-kind historic home situated on one of the the last large, high lots in the Old Village. This .41 acre property is located perfectly on Bennett Street in close proximity to everything that this charming and sought-after neighborhood has to offer. Walk to Shem Creek for fresh seafood, golf cart to one of the many restaurants along Coleman corridor, or ride your bike to Alhambra Hall, the Pitt Street Bridge, and the beach on Sullivans Island.
With no flood insurance required and OVHD-approved preliminary house plans in place, this property offers the perfect opportunity to build the custom home of your dreams, while maintaining the existing cottage as guest house, office, or rental. Plenty of room for a pool, off-street parking; and as an added bonus there is an existing easement off the back of the lot which gives you access from both Bennett St. and Live Oak Dr.
The beautifully-restored cottage boasts high-end finishes while maintaining the original charm; this includes original heart pine floors, high ceilings, wood paneled walls, and rustic original hardware. The modern naturally-bright kitchen features Thermador and Bosh appliances and a soaring beamed ceiling with a windowed surround and office nook overlooking the expansive back yard. New roof, insulation, HVAC, wiring, plumbing and a tankless water-heater make this home very efficient as well. It's literally the best of the old world and the new.
