Have you ever walked Rainbow Row and wondered what those beautiful historic townhomes look like on the inside? One of these delightful homes, listed by Pam Harrington Exclusives, has finally come on the market: The James Cook House is more charming than we could have ever dreamed.
Rainbow Row is nestled in the Historic Charleston neighborhood, and is one of the most desirable properties on the Battery. The longest row of intact 18th-century Georgian row houses in the country, Rainbow Row is famous for the Caribbean-inspired colors for which they are painted. From a historic standpoint, this property is one-of-a-kind; perfectly preserved and maintained, the home dates back to a 1670 foundation on city planning maps, and still has the original 18th-century hand-hews rafters, brickwork, and heart pine flooring. From a location standpoint, it doesn’t get much better than this in Charleston. Views of the ocean (including Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter), cobblestone streets, a very short walk to the battery, and walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops allow you to enjoy all that the quintessential Southern city has to offer.
Today, this home consists of a dine-in, gourmet kitchen, a keeping room and powder room on the first level. Three sets of French doors open onto a elegant brick courtyard and walled garden. The second level boasts a spacious living and dining room with two fireplaces, and french door access to a balcony, complete with iron handrails overlooking the rear garden. The third level features the master suite entirely, complete with a luxury bathroom, a large walk-in custom closet, and laundry alcove. The very top level is outfitted with two guest bedrooms, both with their own private baths.
Located at 93 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29401, this home provides the rare opportunity to own a piece of history, dating back to 1779. Currently listed for $2,395,000 by Pam Harrington Exclusives, you can view this listing here.
