Description

Just blocks from Hampton Park in the desirable Westside neighborhood of downtown Charleston is 549 Rutledge Avenue, a circa 1910s Victorian cottage that is chock full of original architectural features. The three-bedroom, one bathroom house has a shaded front yard with a brick and wrought iron fence to access generous off-street parking. Traditional pressed brick entry steps lead to a wide wrap around porch with a ''haint blue'' beadboard ceiling and turned Victorian porch columns and balustrades. There is a high raised basement with elegant claustra brick side walls, large windows, and nine-foot-high ceilings, all quintessential historic Charleston architectural features. The Arts and Crafts original paneled front door and leaded glass front windows with diamond panes that werewere all the rage in the late Victorian era. The parlors have pressed brick fireplaces with Queen Anne Victorian mirrored mantelpieces, and lace "gingerbread" ornaments the passageway between the parlors. 549 Rutledge has original wide Victorian baseboard and window casing, and unique parquet oak floors. An arched passage leads from the parlors to the kitchen, which features a vintage 1950s ceramic sink and original base cabinets, as well as custom built-in cabinetry with a marble top bar and glass paned upper cabinets. The bathroom retains vintage 1940s wall and floor tile and an updated nineteenth century style grey marble topped vanity. There are original panel doors and knobs throughout the house. A screened in back porch with traditional wooden Tuscan columns leads into the private backyard. Boasting a double parlor cottage plan that is perfect for entertaining, as well as a high lot that is large, quiet, and shaded, 549 Rutledge is the perfect home for anyone seeking a traditional Charleston residence with quaint Victorian character in the heart of the historic city.
