Coveted Charleston French Quarter Location

The thriving French Quarter and South of Broad neighborhoods in downtown Charleston are some of the oldest, most beautiful, and most desirable on the peninsula. This unique property is nestled on the corner of East Bay Street and Unity Alley at 143 East Bay Street, right amid the hustle and bustle of these two neighborhoods. The Battery and Waterfront Park are both a short walk away along cobblestone streets and past the church spires and grand, leaning porches so characteristic of picturesque Charleston. Renowned restaurants like McCrady’s and Cypresss are just steps away, as are many other popular, upscale galleries, restaurants, museums, and boutiques. This area is the crème de la crème of this iconic, Southern city: an unbeatable space to make a home, advance a career (or both) in historic Lowcountry style.

 

First floor at 143 East Bay StreetStunning Historical Home

The three-story home built in the 1780’s has been historically used for commercial and residential purposes. The commercial space, located on the first floor, has soaring two-story ceilings, track lighting, and oversized floor to ceiling windows that overlook East Bay Street to maximize the abundance of foot traffic in the area.  A wrought iron spiral staircase winds to a loft that overlooks the floor, adding an elegant touch of whimsy, and an additional usable space.  These features make it perfect for a retail space, gallery, or possibly even a restaurant.

 

The second and third floors of 143 East Bay Street serve as the residential section with luxurious finishes that include exposed brick wall, wide plank hardwood floors, and brick wood-burning fireplaces that leave echoes of the home’s historical origins. Large windows fill the space with soft sunlight but are high above eye level so that they do not compromise privacy. Rooms include a high-end commercial grade kitchen, a formal dining room, a media room, and a guest suite. This area could be converted to additional commercial space or the lower floor could be rented out for additional income. The many possibilities of this versatile Charleston gem are abundant!
