Downtown Peninsular Charleston Location
The location of this property at 2 Larnes Street, just above Crosstown in the Westside area of peninsular Charleston, is the perfect place to live in historic downtown Charleston. With off-street parking and a location within three miles of all the best that downtown has to offer, this location eliminates the hassle of parking from the enjoyment of downtown attractions. Westside is becoming an increasingly desirable area, especially with young professionals, because it is only a 15-minute walk, or an even faster bike ride, from the popular bars and restaurants of Upper King Street.
Local favorites such as Moe’s Crosstown, D'Allesandro's Pizza, Five Loaves Café and Butcher & Bee are even closer, at less than a mile away. Even the market area, museums, battery, waterfront park, and many shops of lower King Street are merely a few miles from this house, and Hampton Park, the largest park on the peninsula at 60 acres, is also less than a mile away.
This unbeatable location of 2 Larnes Street also comes with a charming place to call home. This cottage, originally built in 1930, has a white exterior with a metal roof, brick chimney, and red accents. A side porch, one of the most iconic features of Charleston houses, with white railing and columns, is a lovely place to have a drink and read a book in the shade. The interior reflects the exterior with white walls, red accents in the kitchen, and an inviting double-sided brick fireplace that gives the home a sense of historic charm. The home has hardwood floors, plenty of natural light, and modern amenities with style—including a claw foot bathtub in the bathroom. A covered back porch, complete with a ceiling fan for hot summer days, is a great outdoor space for eating and entertainment. This is an uncommon opportunity to live in the coveted area of downtown Charleston at an affordable price.
