Charles Edward Leverett House - 1301 Bay Street, - Situated on the high bluff, overlooking the Beaufort River, this early 1800's home was purchased in 1850 by Charles Edward Leverett, the last rector of Old Sheldon Church. Today, the home is fully restored and artfully blends classic lowcountry architecture and finishes with modern conveniences. First and second floor porches, designed to capture the sea breeze, wrap around the front of the home, offering expansive views across the waterway and of the downtown marina. A gracious center hall is flanked by formal dining and living rooms. Both rooms are light filled and feature original fireplaces and heart pine flooring. There is a powder room located off the center hall.
Privately positioned behind the two formal rooms are a kitchen and a family room. The kitchen offers Bosch and Kitchen Aid appliances including a gas cooktop in a center island, a french door refrigerator/freezer and a double oven with a convection/microwave. Dormant fireplaces grace both the kitchen and family room and both rooms enjoy porch and river views.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two full baths. One bath serves two of the bedrooms. A large primary suite includes a walk in closet, a sitting room or office and a generously sized bath with dual vanities, a tub and glass enclosed shower. The upstairs hall with a sitting area accesses the laundry and opens to the second floor waterfront porch.
A rarity in the lowcountry, the home offers a basement, accessed from inside the home and is ideal for storage.
Separate from the house a brick path leads through the garden to the carriage house. A large two car garage faces the side street and offers a separately metered and fully independent apartment above. The ground floor offers two large garage bays and a separate room that serves as a mud room with laundry facilities. On the back is a private entrance to the apartment that includes a full kitchen, a living room and a separate bedroom. A gravel drive, lined with old brick provides ample off street parking, while the guest apartment uses a separate parking area.
