The Julius M. Visanska House offers one of the most amazing panoramic waterfront views of the Charleston Harbor, Fort Sumter, Castle Pinckney and Sullivan's Island that you will find in all of Downtown Charleston. This yellow brick mansion, or as the locals call "the gold house", was built by the notable Charleston architect Albert Simons. The "Double House" sits on .4 acres of beautiful grounds landscaped with native flowers, trees and shrubbery, the carriage house and a nice pool. Historians and well known carriage tours love to point out the home sits on the historic site of Fort Mechanic and has been recognized by the Library of Congress in the Historic American Buildings Survey and is considered one of only 10 "Estate" properties on the Peninsula. True piece of Charleston HistoLet me take you on a tour through 19 E. Battery. As you enter the home a grand center hall is the perfect place to welcome your guests. To the right is an impressive study with beautiful views of the harbor. Across the hall is a spacious formal living room with access to the piazza that runs the length of the house both also with spectacular harbor views. The living room leads into the large formal dining room and then a butler door into the kitchen. The spacious, eat-in kitchen / den overlooks the rear garden and pool. Built-ins add to the overall feeling of warmth making this a great room for relaxing and entertaining. The kitchen has been updated with custom cabinets and stone finishes. There is a butler's pantry and elevator adjacent to this space. The main level also boasts two powder rooms. Up the grand stairs you arrive in the 2nd level center hall. At the end of the hall is the orchid room which also provides magnificent views of the water and there are many fascinating stories on what this room may have been used for over the years. There are two large guest rooms each with their own bath and one with a fireplace. One of the guest rooms overlooks the harbor while the other one has a nice view of the guest house, pool and gardens. The exquisite Master Suite has direct access to the upstairs piazza, harbor views and another one of the fireplaces. There is a large custom walk-in closet and the master bathroom is two words, LAVISH and HUGE! The elevator is available on this level as well as another separate laundry area. The ground level was upgraded to offer two more bedrooms, two additional bathrooms and a work out area. Take a stroll around the grounds to see the 18 x 36 in-ground pool and additional guest quarters over the two car garage. The guest quarters / carriage house have been restored by the current owner providing a cozy living/dining area, bedroom, beautiful bathroom and kitchen. There are so many more unique details and special features that you will have to see to appreciate fully. The main house consists of approximately 6872 sq. feet and the guest house is 458 sq. feet. The main house was updated extensively by previous owners and is being offered fully furnished. This is indeed a one of a kind estate and a one of a kind property and waiting for just the right buyer that appreciates all that 19 E. Battery has to offer. AGENTS PLEASE NOTE THE TWO OF THE 6 BEDOOMS ARE ON THE basement-ground level and not finished to the quality of the other bedrooms on the property. Perfect for teenagers or mother in law.
