This South of Broad 1830 gem has it all: charm, history, and location. The careful renovation and attention to detail, make this home ready to move in and enjoy all that living in Charleston has to offer, especially as it is located just moments from East Bay and the High Battery. This is perfect as a full-time or second home. The entrance hall is framed by the living room and the dining room. For entertaining, just open the doors to the back porch and your party will flow from the magnificent interior to the delightful back patio and courtyard. Off the handsome kitchen are the butler's pantry, wet bar and the sunlit breakfast area that overlooks the courtyard with a water feature. The three spacious and bright bedrooms each have a private bathroom. Jonathan H. Poston writes in hisThe Buildings of Charleston: Captain Benjamin Smith, a shipbuilder, built 1 and 3 Atlantic as identical 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.
