Perfection of Charleston, South Carolina

30 Queen Street

information below via Zillow

30 Queen Street is an extraordinary pre-Revolutionary home in the heart of the French Quarter. Built in 1770, this three-story masonry residence boasts a combination of important historic details and modern conveniences for today's living. The corner quoining, keystones above the windows, and surmounting hipped roof are in the Federal style, adding charming architectural interest. Seven fireplaces, tall ceilings, and hardwood floors flow throughout the home. Formal living and dining rooms are just off the entry hall, with an eat-in kitchen and very large family room tucked away at the back of the house. This family room boasts two fireplaces, exposed brick walls, and French doors out to the walled courtyard and garden. The second floor master suite offers a sitting area, fireplace, and a hall of closets leading to the marble bath with garden tub and separate shower. Two additional bedrooms on this floor - and two more on the third floor provide ample room for family and friends. This ideal location offers an easy walk to historic sights, Waterfront Park, art galleries and boutique shopping, and many of Charleston's top restaurants.

  1. Black and White is always the BEST! Thanks for sharing = )

  2. Charleston is one of my favorite cities but haven't been in a couple of years...lovely photos! Some citizens are on a rampage against the (smaller) cruise ships docking at the terminal. Perhaps they object to the hoi, that would include me as I love taking smaller cruises out of Charleston -lol-.

  3. Marsha, if I've somehow managed to comment twice...delete me once -lol-. I adore Charleston but haven't been for a couple of years. I use Charleston port to take small ship cruises to the western Caribbean. There are those Charleston citizens who are trying to get rid of the cruise ships and, apparently, the hoi polloi...meaning me -lol-. Perhaps they fail to realize the tax revenue brought to the city by ships, cruisers and staff.
    Those are lovely photos; I wonder at the rock portion of the brick driveway.

  4. The white with black shutters, planter boxes and red flowers are perfection!! I love everything about this!! Enjoy your Sunday doll. xoJennifer
