AAA+ LOCATION, PARKING, GARDEN, ELEVATOR, GUEST COTTAGE, POOL and all gorgeous! This house is both elegant and incredibly livable. It was most recently the home of bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons. c. 1758. VALUABLE TO THE CITY. The drawing room is one of the few surviving 18th C. mahogany paneled rooms in America, and the only one in Charleston. The dining room and two front rooms upstairs are beautifully paneled in cypress, known for being impervious to insects and termites. The elegant primary rooms flow back first to a sun room, beside the kitchen, and then to a very large library/family room. Glass across the back of the house brings the garden indoors. A screened porch opens out to a lush, enchanting garden room. The flow through and (see MORE...)around the home is perfect for entertaining and it is all very private. Behind the garden to the left is a large guest cottage and to the right, behind a hedge, is yet another garden room, this one featuring a large pool. High walls at the back and left of the property and Mrs. Whaley's garden on the south side, separated by a tall, graceful white fence, define this secluded piece of heaven. Upstairs the home has a total of 4 bedrooms. Two bedrooms and a bath over the primary front rooms are currently arranged as a master suite. There are two additional bedrooms and a bath in the back of the upstairs portion of the house. There is an elevator in the middle and a perfect spot to add back stairs should you desire. The home is quite lovely and ready to move into. The light is notable because the house to the north sits back on its lot, allowing sunshine to pour into 60 Church. Four fireplaces: LR, DR and Dressing Room have gas logs. Master BR has a gas line in place. Rated in "This is Charleston" as VALUABLE TO THE CITY. The drawing room is one of the few surviving 18th C. mahogany paneled rooms in America, and the only one in Charleston. The dining room and two front rooms upstairs are beautifully paneled in cypress, known for being impervious to insects and termites.
