Description

''WITHOUT VICTORY WE WILL BE WITHOUT HOMES'' - A robust 1943 announcement by the original developer, Victory Housing Corporation. As World War Two raged on, Charleston found itself in a housing shortage due to a sharp rise in employment at the naval yard and air base. Originally developed for the purposes of housing workers of the shipyards, Byrnes Downs offered affordable cottage style brick homes, complete with emerging conveniences such as electric hot water and city water & sewer to meet the growing demand of the wartime environment. V-Housing Corporation completed the development of a former cabbage patch into Byrnes Downs, just one month prior to the end of the war. Ultimately the homes were sold to returning soldiers and their families.~ Now, over 75 years later this Charleston classic is reborn. Beautifully restored with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The design team focused on maintaining the mid-century character, maximizing living spaces, and finishing with upscale modern conveniences. An expanded all-new kitchen features a beautiful waterfall edge quartz topped kitchen island, complete appliance package, custom tiled backsplash, pot-filler and much more. All new bathroom design features include custom tiled showers with LED lighting, dual function rainfall shower head and frameless shower screens. The downstairs master suite expansion offers dual vanities and beautiful shiplap walls. Heavy trim and cove crown molding are found throughout the living areas to compliment the original refinished hardwood flooring. A key design task was the creation of that extra space so many seek for a play area for little ones or perhaps a small home-office desk space. Combined with the creation of a dedicated laundry area, a flex space with custom built-in shelving is located just off the main hallway. This area serves the staircase to the second level. Two additional bedrooms and a full bath were uniquely created to maximize every possible space in this Byrnes Downs beauty. A perfectly private backyard offers plenty of room to enjoy the time outdoors. Within the fenced backyard is a patio area and attached storage shed. Speaking of the outdoors, 13 Ludwell is located a stone's throw away from the West Ashley Greenway, and 8 mile recreation trail project by the City of Charleston. This is a tremendous asset to those who crave fitness or simply love being outdoors. It offers connectivity to the West Ashley Bikeway and should continue to link with area parks and future recreation projects. You'll be within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Avondale, and a quick drive to and from Downtown Charleston, with only two stoplights in your travels. There is no HOA, live your life how you wish. You might also notice the lack of mailboxes on the streets. What's more American than greeting your mail carrier each day as they visit your letterbox by the front door? Author Donna F. Jacobs notes in her published work on the history of Byrnes Downs that the first residents would give friends and family a very specific description on how to find their neighborhood when planning a visit. "Do you know where the Coburg Cow is? If you pass the cow, you've gone too far." This of course referencing the famous Coburg Dairy adjacent to the neighborhood. The next chapter of this iconic community welcomes you to become part of the story.
