ROOM TO BREATH! Built in 1873, the Prioleau-Miles House is packed with charm and opportunity to create a masterful estate on a uniquely large and coveted 1/2+/- acre lot. The property features a 6,434+/- sq ft main house, an 1,800+/- sq ft guest cottage, a detached garage and workshop, plenty of room for a pool and an unprecedented 9+ off-street parking spaces.Situated in the South of Broad neighborhood, the property is a block away from the Charleston Parks Conservancy containing Colonial Lake and Moultrie Playground - tennis, basketball, pickleball, a children's playground with impact-absorbent surfacing and beautiful strolling around the lake. Coupled with Charleston's beaches, architecture, world-class shopping, cuisine and cultural amenities ... ... this is the perfect homestead for a multi-generational investment. Ideal for entertaining, the first floor impresses with double formal living rooms, each with its own fireplace and custom mirrors original to the house. Authentic gasolier chandeliers (converted to electric) adorn the main spaces. Exquisite French doors open directly onto the generous first-floor piazza, perfect for al fresco dining. The heart-of-pine floors extend through the magnificent formal dining room with original curved glass floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace. Adjacent to the dining room is a butler's pantry and catering kitchen. At the rear of the first floor, is a large in-law/au pair/master bedroom with a marble bathroom and walk-in closet. This light-filled, first-floor bedroom has brand new wall-to-wall carpet and includes a private entrance to the gardens outside. The second floor has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry room and a stunning gourmet kitchen boasting quartz countertops and a gas Thermador® range, matching hood system, cabinet depth built-in refrigerator and a dining nook. Completing the second floor is a large family room with custom bookshelves, a gas fireplace, a gorgeous view of the gardens and easy access to the second-floor piazza. The third floor contains two bedrooms which share a full bathroom. South of the main house is the two-story guest house, recently reconfigured as two 800± sq ft rental apartments. Each apartment provides one bedroom, one bathroom and a den. The downstairs unit has a full kitchen while the upstairs unit has a kitchenette. The cottage could be easily returned to its original three-bedroom, two-bathroom floor plan. Also, in the south-west portion of the double lot is a one-car garage with an automatic door, doubling as a workshop and storage shed. Both the guest cottage and the garage could be demolished and replaced with new structures (with permits and conservation easement approval). The property is extensively landscaped with new (2017) permeable pavers, an underground storm-drainage system and lush plantings.
