19 Wentworth Street Restoration (Before)

Elegant Ansonborough home built in 1847 by Charleston industrialist, William Lebby. Unique period cast iron fence and gate mark the entrance to the property. Painted brick exterior and slate roof maintain the home’s original character.

Well-preserved period details include beautiful floors, moldings, and mantles. Double piazzas are tucked privately behind the front room, with views overlooking the large walled garden containing one of Charleston’s largest fig trees and numerous large camellias.

The second level of the main house contains a large guest bedroom with en-suite bath at the front, and a generous master suite located in the privacy of the rear. The third floor dormer rooms include a guest bedroom and half bath, and an office equipped with an antique tavern table that conveys with the house.

The original 2-story kitchen house  is attached to the rear wall of the main house but not internally connected. Currently configured as a guesthouse with living room. The kitchen house retains its period feel with exposed brick walls and wood beams.
