262 Coming Street has been completely restored, transforming a classic Charleston single house into a home fit for modern convinces . The 1880 portion of the home was gutted to the exterior studs and has all new interiors. Now the original side entrance off the piazza opens to an open concept living room, kitchen and dining room. Exposed ceiling beams and original brick fireplaces, plus heart pine floors and ship lap walls lend an authentic sense of history. An arch over a breakfast bar delineates the contemporary kitchen.
Fashionable grey cabinetry, granite counter tops, a farmhouse sink and stainless steel appliances, including a 5-burner gas stove, provide all the conveniences.
The spacious dining room features a wall of glass doors that open fully to connect to the screened porch, bringing the outdoors in. A corner wood-burning fireplace makes this area as ideal for chilly fall evenings as for sunny spring days. The fenced-in brick patio has an attractive arch architectural element and extends your outdoor living space. A front room makes a perfect office, playroom or bedroom, with its own fireplace and en suite bath. A half bath and walk-in pantry finish the first floor.
Upstairs is a loft sitting room/media room with another fireplace. French doors lead to the master suite. A walk-in closet has built-in shelving and a stackable washer and dryer. A clever office nook with a built-in desk and library shelving leads to the master bath. White marble floors, a dual head shower with subway tile and a separate makeup vanity highlight this space. The front bedroom mirrors the one below, with a fireplace and en suite bath with a petite claw foot tub. Both the sitting room and master bedroom access the second-floor piazza and overlook a charming front garden and gated tandem off-street parking. The renovation includes many thoughtful details, such as Nest smart thermostats, an on-demand water heater and solar panels.
