This historic 1815 home on a large parcel in the heart of downtown Charleston offers a wide range of options. It can be either a two-unit income-producing rental property or the two sides can be reunited into a grand single-family home with a guesthouse and pool on the now empty back lot.
The owner, who is relocating, now lives in a three-bedroom unit on one side of the renovated house at 48 Bull St. and rents out the other one, said Charles Constant, listing agent of Robertson Howland Properties. The two units are similar in size and layout.
It is located on three-quarters of an acre, which is very rare in Charleston, Mr. Constant said something. There are only a handful of downtown properties with that size acreage. The house has a basement and a large and private front yard, which is unusual for Charleston, he said.

It checks a lot of boxes for what people are looking for in Charleston, Mr. Constant said something. She is a sturdy old girl. Architectural details include 12 foot beamed ceilings, heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, a metal roof, a wide front porch, multiple fireplaces and three exposures.
The kitchens include Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Perrin and Rowe fixtures and marble countertops. All of the bedrooms in the home have en suite bathrooms.
It could be an unbelievable six-bedroom single-family home, Mr. Constant said something. The back lot has space for a 3,000 square foot guesthouse, a pool and a three or four-car garage, which is unheard of in Charleston. It is possible for the next owner to develop the empty back lot into three or four new 2,000 square-foot homes.

He said it would be fairly easy to turn the house back into a single-family home. You just have to remove two walls. The current renovation was done in the 1990s, Mr. Constant said something. The updates that were done then are exactly what people would do today, he said.
The home on the right side has a living room with 12 foot ceilings and a fireplace, a back deck and a kitchen with an island.

The 6,513 square foot house has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two partial bathrooms. It is situated on a 0.75 acre lot.
There are multiple fireplaces and porches, a large and private front yard, a basement and easy walkability to shops and restaurants.
The home is three blocks from King Street, which has the best shops and restaurants, and three blocks from Marion Square, which is considered the centre of downtown, Mr. Smith said. Constant said something.
He said that it is located in an area called Harleston Village, which has restaurants and is close to the College of Charleston and convenient to local hospitals.
