From the outside, The Anchorage is about as "Lowcountry" as it gets. The wide double porches, high brick foundation and flanking staircase are classic Charleston design elements. Tall, shuttered windows, shiplap siding, standing seam metal roof and narrow dormers add to the traditional Charleston appeal of this Classic home.
In typical Charleston fashion, one is greeted upon entering with a foyer and grand staircase leading to the second floor. A living room or study opens to the right and a formal dining room lies through a cased opening to the left of the foyer. Straight ahead, the back of the house offers a large open area for kitchen, breakfast and family room with a view to through a screened porch. This area is designed for family living and entertaining with today's lifestyles in mind. Off the kitchen another room serves as an office or fourth bedroom with connecting bath. A large laundry room is at the foot of the convenient back stair leading to the bedrooms above. Space is provided for an elevator serving the floor above.
The free-standing, three car garage is located so as to provide a screen to pool and terrace off the family room and has the added feature of a guest suite above with private, outside entrance.
