Exquisite Beauty Inside and Out
Located at the western end of downtown Charleston on Broad Street, between Colonial Lake and the Ashley River, The Charles will reflect the historic city’s most distinguished architecture and craftsmanship. Such an exceptional property deserves an outstanding approach, and The Beach Company is working with the very best teams, including award-winning architects Antunovich Associates.
A design leader in historic preservation and adaptive reuse projects, Chicago-based Antunovich crafted The Charles space to combine innovative features and contemporary style with Charleston’s quintessential architecture. Each of the four-story luxury townhomes feature neoclassical exteriors characterized by strong horizontal and verticals and timeless forms.
“The Architecture of The Charles harkens back to an earlier time in Charleston where quality materials and the scale and proportion of Buildings were cherished,” says Joe Antunovich, Founder and President of Antunovich Associates.
“The Charles townhomes respect these old ideals and celebrate the pedestrian nature of the surrounding community with buildings that are carefully scaled and proportioned resulting in an architecture that is both elegant and timeless. The seamless integration of wrought iron fences and gates, distinctive light fixtures, bluestone stoops, ornate limestone and brick facades, classic chimney tops, slate roofing and bucolic landscaping all contribute to making The Charles townhomes blend harmoniously with the surrounding historic Charleston neighborhood.”
Tucked within 17th-century Mansard-styled slate shingle rooftops, 21st-century private rooftop terraces open to waterfront views of the Ashley River and Charleston Harbor. Natural limestone and brick facades, custom wrought-iron gates and fencing, bluestone stoops and copper accents throughout the exterior were meticulously designed to blend into Charleston’s architectural identity.
Inside, stone finishes including quartz and marble run throughout spa-inspired bathrooms and chef-caliber kitchens that are filled with Waterworks fixtures and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Each residence features an expansive open plan main floor, anchored by a build-in stone mantel fireplace. A second masonry gas fireplace on the 4th terrace level enhances entertaining and exquisite river views.
