This handsome Federal style building was constructed in the late 1700's and stands as one of the oldest structures constructed in Charleston's plan of single house-one room wide, two primary rooms to a floor and stairwell centered between the primary rooms. From the Historic Charleston Foundation, "89 Broad Street was probably erected after 1786 by Maj. Stephen Lee, a watchmaker and planter, on land inherited from his wife's father, Paul Smyser." The building was extensively renovated in 1999-2000 and is currently occupied by law offices; however, could be converted into a residence or live/work building.Wonderful fireplaces adorn each of the four rooms on the second and third floors. A full size attic is easily accessible for storage or to be converted into two other living spaces.This magnificent, historically significant structure provides a family desiring to reside in downtown Charleston with a town home style living, while still offering a place to run a retail business or office on the first floor. There is also an accessible basement. Restaurants, art galleries, hotels, grocery stores, and shopping along King Street, Meeting Street and East Bay Street are within walking distance. Many of the local beaches are just a short drive over the numerous bridges. Four garage parking spaces are currently utilized by the owner and are available for rent.
