Considered Valuable to the City and on the National Register , The Presqu'ile House, C. 1802. Originally a fine Charleston residence, this historic home located on Upper East Bay Street currently used as an Office Space and is zoned Limited Business. If converted to a residence or mixed use property the home or condo could boast 3 or 4 bedrooms and has room to add at least 2 additional full bathrooms. The home consists of 2 wings: one built C. 1802 and a second built C. 1840. Historic details of the home include fine Adam style woodwork, arched windows, a 2-story piazza extending along 3 sides, and a flying staircase that has been described as ''one of the most beautiful in Charleston.'' The potential for this historic gem could include mixed use, residential and a myriad of commercial uses including exclusive office space, elegant venue/event space, or restaurant space. Verify use with zoning office. There are 2 meters on the building and ample parking. Historic Charleston Foundation Easement exists on the property.
