Introducing the Stephen Shrewsbury House in downtown Charleston's coveted Ansonborough neighborhood. A solid-brick single house, 40 Laurens Street commands attention with two levels of iconic piazzas and a veranda courtyard at ground level. The circa 1808 home showcases exquisite Adamesque woodworking, including period mantels and mouldings, expertly curated by the original builder who happened to possess a background in carpentry. With 4.5 living levels and over 6,000 square feet, this residence offers ample room to entertain guests for legendary house parties. The courtyard, separate from the generous gated off-street parking area, provides an idyllic walled sanctuary with minimal maintenance for the perfect lock and leave lifestyle.Extensively renovated in 2021, the luxury kitchen wows with high-end finishes and appliances like the Wolf six-burner range. A handsome fireplace, lovingly incorporated into the new kitchen design, infuses the space with character. Accessible by the grand staircase and the three-stop elevator, the primary suite encompasses the home's third floor featuring a library, primary bedroom, ensuite bathroom, and walk-in closet. The fourth floor offers two spacious full height guest rooms with a shared bath, with a third bedroom on the upper dormer level. The Garden Level, also accessible by the elevator, provides a spacious guest or nanny suite with a dedicated living space. The location of this stunning and well-preserved property is unbeatable, less than a quarter-mile to the grocery store, with close proximity to the city market, Upper King Street, and all of the best that Downtown Charleston has to offer. Live like a local in grand fashion at 40 Laurens.
