Overview

The grandeur of Downtown Charleston awaits at the Stephen Shrewsbury House in the coveted Ansonborough neighborhood. A solid-brick single house, 40 Laurens Street commands attention with two levels of iconic piazzas and a ground-level veranda courtyard. The circa 1809 home showcases exquisite Adamesque woodworking, including period mantels and mouldings, expertly curated by the original builder, who had 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 and Sub Zero refrigerator. A handsome fireplace, lovingly incorporated into the new kitchen design, infuses the space with character. A comfortable, informal dining area completes the space, with additional refrigeration drawers and bar stool seating.Accessible by the grand staircase and the three-stop elevator, the primary suite encompasses the entire second floor, featuring a library, primary bedroom, recently renovated bath, and walk-in closet. The fourth floor offers two spacious full-height guest rooms with a shared bath - also recently redone- and 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, within two blocks of the grocery store, close proximity to the beating heart of the city's fine dining and nightlife, cultural performance venues, and Marion Square - truly walkable to all of the best that Downtown Charleston has to offer. Live like a local in grand fashion at 40 Laurens; schedule your showing today.
