Sold. The Belle of the Ball in Charleston, South Carolina. Circa 1904. $825,000

February 3, 2020

This house is known as the Belle of the Ball on Bennett Street. Built in 1904. It is located in Charleston, South Carolina. This house definitely has the Charleston price tag. It seems to be a bit high priced considering the work, even for Charleston. That staircase sure is beautiful though! I bet there are hardwood floors underneath all of the carpeting. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,183 square feet. $825,000

From the Zillow listing:


The Belle of the Ball on Bennett! This Queen Anne Victorian Inspired home has beautiful curb appeal and limitless potential with its intricate architectural details and large yard. With nearly 3200 sqft, there’s plenty of room to create your dream home within walking distance to the downtown area hospitals, restaurants and businesses. Cannon Park is directly across the street (the site of the Old Charleston Museum with its remaining column structures.) The corner lot offers privacy with only one close neighbor beside you. The rear yard extends beyond the fence for off-street parking and the potential for a garage. This is not a typical single home and allows for larger living spaces and more potential for reconfiguration of the interior. The intricate detailed woodwork on the stairwell is not to be missed and the 3 panel stained glass window at the turn of the stairwell is stunning. Make sure you look upwards to the elegant crown molding in the downstairs living areas.
