Property description

Experience breathtaking water and city views from every room of this sleek and chic condo in one of historic Charleston’s most iconic buildings, Fort Sumter House. Located in the prestigious and famed South of Broad neighborhood, directly on the Charleston Battery, 1 King is amongst the most sought-after addresses in downtown Charleston. This fifth floor, corner unit pied-a-terre offers unparalleled views spanning across Charleston’s skyline. Enjoy sweeping panoramas of the grand mansions along the Battery, past city rooftops and church steeples, over the treetop canopy of White Point Garden, through Charleston Harbor, across the Ashley River, all the way back to the Ravenel Bridge.

Condo 508 is one of the larger original single floor plans, with 2 bedrooms, a corner living room, and eat-in kitchen. The current owner has upgraded the home with Circa lighting fixtures, Bird hardware, and custom closets, plus imported Italian carpets in both bedrooms. The kitchen and living room have marble tile floors, while the foyer stuns with a textured wallcovering reminiscent of the old city’s cobblestone streets. The living room includes a new walk-out Juliet balcony overlooking the Ashley River. Gated, off-street parking is included.

Fort Sumter House began its existence as the Fort Sumter Hotel, which opened to guests in 1924. The 7-story building is located along the South Battery, directly adjacent to White Point Garden. At its inception, it was the tallest building, as well as the only luxury hotel on the Charleston Peninsula. Famous guests include John F. Kennedy, Tennessee Williams, and Irene Selznick. The Fort Sumter Hotel closed in 1973 and the building was converted to luxury condominiums.

Fort Sumter House has recently undergone an extensive and transformative $4.5 million renovation, solidifying itself as a premier location to call home in Charleston. Step into a more gracious era in the grand lobby. Hallways feature handsome black and white images of the Holy City’s most charming architecture. Amenities include a private, palmetto tree-lined pool along the Battery, passenger and freight elevators, on-site security, laundry facilities, and an exercise room. Everything you need and desire is waiting for you in this movie-in ready luxury condo for sale.
