One Of Charleston’s Historic Rainbow Row Houses Is On The Market
Charleston’s Rainbow Row might be one of the most coveted real estate locales in the region. It’s moniker comes from the 13 sherbet-colored row homes that line the street, one of which is currently on the market. Step inside the Inglis Arch House at 91 and 91 ½ E Bay Street to find charm abounding and amenities galore. The restored circa 1780s home, listed by Debbie Fisher of Handsome Properties, can be yours for a cool $5,599,000. Let us know if you’ll be moving in—we’ll be over directly with a pecan pie and, yes, we’d love to come in for a glass of tea and a look around. Consider us your welcome to the neighborhood.
The Pink House
Don’t let the street view fool you—this pink row house is a meandering gem with stature and grace well beyond its initial, already-charming, curb appeal.
Enchanting Brick Walkway
Follow a charming brick path into the type of house real estate dreams are made of. Even the foliage plays to the allure creating a whimsical canopy.
The Pink Exterior
Peer out the windows at the back of the pink house for views of the gardens and pool beyond.
The Courtyard at Night
Plenty of warm light makes this the ideal space for entertaining even after the sun goes down. Vine covered brick walls, lush landscaping, and dreams of fizzy cocktails have us pining for an invite.
Large sliding doors, which lead to the courtyard, allow for almost an indoor-outdoor feel.
The crowning glory of the atrium is this stately chandelier. It’s large in stature but its delicate design keeps the light-filled space airy.
Kitchen With a View
Even though the kitchen is nestled in the interior of the house, a circular window that gazes out into another interior space adds interest.
The Carriage House Library
Meticulous architectural details make this one of the most charming rooms in the house. Exposed beams, four sets of French doors leading to the gardens, book-lined walls, and one of the home’s many fireplaces create a fairytale-like space.
The Gold Bedroom
Every Southern grande dame needs a gold bedroom, don’t you agree? This one is surrounded in floral wallpaper with draperies to match.
How To Make an Entrance: Charleston Edition
Charleston’s historic mansions are replete with character—this winding staircase is no exception.
A Not So Discreet Entry
Don’t let these stately walls fool you; they’re stocked with plenty of storage. There are three separate closets within the entry hall, so there’ll be no need to stick those winter coats in the attic come springtime. The foyer even has its very own powder room.
The Rooftop Deck
The views from the rooftop deck are mesmerizing whether it’s dawn or dusk. Don’t feel like taking the stairs? There’s an elevator that can bring you right up.
Green Bathroom Swimming in Character
Even the baths aren’t without historic details galore. Here, wide-plank wood flooring is coated in paint, stunning marble countertops and tile surround the plumping, while folding shutters let in plenty of light when privacy isn’t necessary.
The Carriage House Kitchen
Butcher block countertops, an amazing vent hood, state of the art appliances, glass-front inset cabinet doors, beamed ceilings, and charming lighting fixtures—this might be the kitchen of our dreams. Here, the carriage house kitchen plays second fiddle to its big brother in the main house.
