Overview:

A beautifully restored historic residence on Rainbow Row, the Inglis Arch House, circa 1787, is perfectly suited for every lifestyle. Enter through the iron gate at the front of the home down a lantern lit covered walkway to the main entrance, which opens to a large entry hall with powder room and three different storage closets. The gracious dine in kitchen to the right of the entry hall is open and spacious. With double ovens, a large Wolf gas range, and generous island, it is ideal whether you are cooking for one or twenty, eating by the fireplace at breakfast, or with a few guests for less formal occasions. The light filled Atrium living room just off the kitchen opens to a private courtyard in front of the carriage house and is perfect for hosting 8-15 guests or just relaxing in frontof the television by the fire. Head up the grand staircase to the red living room on the second floor for a more formal dining space, or even for pre or post dinner dancing, complete with a third roaring fireplace, wet bar, and three sets of French doors to bring in a cool breeze from the courtyard. A surprisingly quiet guest bedroom overlooking East Bay Street, full bathroom, laundry room, and gracious landing are also conveniently located on the second floor. The grand master suite, complete with walk in closets, his and her bathrooms, and sitting room/guest bedroom can be found on the top floor. A fourth fireplace, beamed ceilings, and arched doorways make this a quiet and relaxing owners retreat. The rooftop deck can be accessed via the elevator, which opens to every floor. When entertaining guests, whisk them up the elevator to the rooftop directly from the first floor entry hall for spectacular sunset views of the Cooper River, the Ravenel Bridge, and the Peninsula. Host larger events in the carriage house library, with soaring ceilings, exposed wood beams, a fifth fireplace, and French doors on three sides which provide easy access to the gardens. With a gourmet kitchen, sitting room, two fireplaces, private garden, spacious bedroom, powder room, full bath, and open study, the Carriage House is perfect for hosting family and other overnight guests. It is also separately metered, and can be accessed through the covered walkway from East Bay Street without ever entering the main home, making it a perfect rental property as well. French doors from the carriage house and a meandering private walkway from the main house open into a third garden with an elegant pool, a large green space, and commanding oak tree. Additionally, there is a small garage with room for a golf cart or possibly one very small car and one to two parking spaces (depending on the car size) on the street in front of the home for the owner's exclusive use. There is a Historic Charleston Preservation Easement on the facade and gardens, no flood insurance is required, and light fixtures on first floor of the main house do not convey.
