Once your guests enter the north building, one of two 50-unit buildings, a sumptuous marble lobby (and most times a concierge) welcomes them. This condo is located to your right down a quiet hallway with only two other residences. This is a first floor (plaza level) condo, but is one level above the parking garage and terrace level condos. The E1 plan does not have a condo under it and it uniquely shares no walls with other condos. It is extra quiet since no elevator opens directly into the unit. This floor plan is larger than many three bedroom floor plans and all rooms are generously sized!
Entering the front door, you will notice that no expense or detail was spared in the recent renovation. Upgraded finishes include warm wide-plank wood floors in the living and dining areas, kitchen and keeping room, and both bedrooms. This pristine, immaculately maintained home can be traditionally decorated, but would also lend itself to more transitional or modern furnishings.
The living and dining areas are graciously sized. The spectacular dining area has plenty of room for a long table and large sideboard/hutch. The extensive three-piece crown moulding continues through-out the home and ceilings are 10'. Off the living room is one of two covered terraces. This corner of the building is perfectly oriented to catch the sunset, but not the direct afternoon glare.

Features include custom cabinetry, granite counters, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador wall oven, glass cook-top, built-in microwave, space for a separate wine refrigerator or ice-maker and a center island.

The keeping room off the kitchen would make a nice den/family room or office. The fireplace with gas logs is comfortably captivating. Several artists live in the building due to the fantastic natural light, so this could also be your studio. The sunny balcony off the keeping room is a great place for your herb garden. On nice days (most days here in paradise), throw open the doors for glorious cross ventilation and river breezes. There are high end ceiling fans in many rooms. Some of the glass doors have disappearing screens.
The unbelievable master bedroom also features an abundance of windows and access to the covered terrace, where you can catch a glimpse of the Charleston Harbor.

The master bath has plenty of storage, including a long vanity with two sinks, a private water closet, a deluxe soaking tub and separate tiled shower with glass enclosure. The flooring and counters are a warm marble currently trending.

Maybe you will use the guest bedroom as a full-time home office or studio since there are guest suites available just down the hall. The guest bedroom has access to a covered terrace with garden views. The sunrise views from the bedrooms and the keeping room may be your favorite! Enjoy a dramatic sunrise on one terrace overlooking lush landscaping and end your day with captivating sunset cocktails on the other!
