Years ago I wrote a post about finding a beautiful Craftsman style home in Charleston as you will find many of these lovely places built throughout Hampton Park Terrace, Wagener Terrace and North Central in the 1910s-1940s, and it is quite a sought after style. Though certainly Charleston’s homes differ from those in other areas of the country, you will find some similar elements that evoke that traditional Craftsman Bungalow: wide front porches, tapered columns, exposed rafter tails, windows with multi-paned top sashes and single-paned bottom sashes, and attention to detail on the interior.
The home at 783 Rutledge Avenue in Wagener Terrace offers just that – historic Craftsman details with modern respectful renovations that complement the era. My favorite things about it are the front porch, the multiple sets of original french doors, the intact picture molding, the great built-ins in one of the upstairs bedrooms and the easy open flow to the rooms. At a generous 1980 square feet (spacious for the neighborhood!), it has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, multiple rooms for living and entertaining, a totally renovated kitchen and a lush, private back yard. And a bonus, it is only a few blocks from the lovely Hampton Park!
