Location: Charleston, South Carolina
This gorgeous Colonial Revival home in downtown Charleston was actually built in 1931, but you’d never know it. Designed by prominent local architect Erle Stillwell for the Maybank family during the Great Depression, the Southern belle comes on the market for the first time ever, wonderfully preserved and tastefully updated.
The white-brick five-bedroom-five-bath is set off Murray Boulevard right by the Ashley River and features a slew of charming architectural details like a pedimented front entrance, side-gabled slate roof, and two end chimneys.
Inside, a wide central hall with grand staircase makes way for a formal parlor and sun room on the right, and a library, formal dining, and kitchen on the left. The spacious bedrooms (three that are ensuite) are located on the second and third floors.
Hardwood floors, high ceilings with molding, wainscoting, paneling, and fireplaces, along with other delights like a private garden and expansive waterfront views round out the property at 78 Murray Boulevard. It’s listed for $3,600,000. Have a look.
