Watch the boats pass by and enjoy spectacular sunsets from this grand South of Broad home with unparalleled waterfront views! 18 Murray Boulevard's elevated front porch provides the perfect sanctuary for enjoying the best water views in town and breezes from the Charleston Harbor. This stately Georgian inspired four-square home offers a gracious entrance into a marble-tiled foyer and central hall. Beautiful arched openings on the left side of the foyer lead into the spacious living room, with large windows bringing in natural light and views of the Ashley River. The grand formal dining room is connected to the living room with arched openings on either side of the fireplace and garden facing windows. From the right side of the foyer there is a spacious and comfortable informal living area which flows seamlessly into a breakfast space and enormous chef's kitchen. This light-filled open arrangement offers a wonderfully connected space to enjoy cooking, gathering and relaxing. The 12-foot-deep front porch provides ample room to furnish it as an outdoor living space - it must be experienced first-hand to fully appreciate the serenity of the view and breeze!
From the second-floor landing, pass into the elegant primary suite which occupies half of the second floor. Wrapped with large windows, the primary bedroom provides elevated views across the water, and plenty of space for a fireplace and sitting area within the bedroom. The primary bath is equipped with a double vanity, jetted tub, tiled shower, fireplace and large walk-in closet. Two other sizable bedrooms occupy the second floor, each with its own ensuite bath and plenty of built-ins and closet space. The second-floor porch is also 12 feet deep, offering another large outdoor living area with sweeping views across the river and harbor.
The third floor provides a perch for a cozy guest room with an amazing view from its southern facing window, complete with ensuite bath and steam shower. The ground floor of this grand residence offers more than 2,000 square feet of air-conditioned flexible space, including a full kitchen and full bath. This highly useful space creates options for a separate apartment, gym, home theater or play space with vast amounts of storage.
The owners have lovingly nurtured beautiful plantings across the front of the property, and an elegant walled courtyard in the back with lush mature plantings, bluestone patio and koi pond with fountain.
With a rare two-car garage, 18 Murray Boulevard offers covered parking for two cars and a golf cart, as well as bikes and other toys or tools. There is a three-stop elevator providing easy access from the garage level to the main living area and primary bedroom floor. This home has been extremely well cared for and has received important updates over the years - in approximately 2005-2006 the entire house was fitted with custom mahogany hurricane resistant windows made by Oldcastle, eliminating the need for exterior storm panels. A new front door system and panels were installed in 2020. A generator provides sufficient power for the entire home in the event of a power outage. The City of Charleston completed the section of Low Battery wall facing the home in 2023, providing a beautiful new roadway and elevated walking path along the recently raised seawall. This is truly one of the finest homes along Charleston's famed Murray Boulevard, with the best porches for enjoying the sights of the Lowcountry waterfront!
