This South of Broad 1830 gem has it all: charm, history & location.The careful renovation & attention to detail, make this home ready to move in & enjoy all that Charleston has to offer especially as it is just feet to E Bay & High Battery. This is perfect as a full-time or 2nd home. The entrance hall is framed by the living rm & the dining rm.For entertaining, just open the doors to the back porch & your party will flow from the magnificent interior to the delightful back patio & courtyard. Off the handsome kitchen is butler's pantry/wet bar & a sunlit breakfast area which overlooks the courtyard w/ water feature. The 3 spacious & bright bedrms have private bathrms. Jonathan H Poston writes in The Buildings of Charleston: Captain Benjamin Smith, a shipbuilder, built 1 & 3 Atlantic as Pridentical dwellings following the Charleston single house plan with two rooms on either side of a central hall. Unlike the typical single house placement, these structures lie directly on the street and have no piazzas. Simple weatherboarding, deep plain entablatures and corner boards sheathe these simple five-bay dwellings capped with gable roofs, dormers, and end chimneys. Identical Neoclassical style doorways accent both buildings, which are fronted by modern staircases. Elizabeth O'Neill Verner, founder of the Charleston Etchers' Club and a leading exponent of the fledgling historic preservation movement, maintained a studio and residence at 3 Atlantic Street.
