(8C) Alexander Wilson House at St. Philip Square Apartment

Downtown Charleston

Welcome to 8C at the Alexander Wilson House at St. Philip Square. Enjoy beautifully renovated properties in the heart of historic downtown Charleston and less than 1 block to King Street. DETAILS OF THIS PROPERTY: •4 bedrooms •2 queen bed, 2 King beds or singles with fee, 1 queen sofa sleeper •4 all new bathrooms with marble and glass. •One bathtub. All ensuite. •All new, fully stocked kitchen, quartz counter •Piazza with glass table for 8 •Historic, high ceilings, hardwood floors •Fully renovated, professionally designed •Great for groups @St Philip Square •One Parking spot for this quintessential Charleston single house, this apartment is located on the second floor of one of Charleston's special historic houses. You enter the house through street steps onto the first floor piazza and then up the steps to the second floor overlooking treetops and rooftops. Now enter the apartment from the second floor piazza into a large high ceilinged GREAT ROOM with beautiful hardwood floors, a large dining room table. The brand new KITCHEN with elegant cabinetry and quartz counter is tucked away to the rear of this light-filled "great room". The marble counter with barstools is an inviting gathering space where you can visit, watch the cook or enjoy a glass of wine. The kitchen has a complete supply of dishes and cookware. We have tried to add items that would make entertaining a joy. LIVING ROOM/4TH BEDROOM to the left are double folding doors leading into the grand living room with classic fireplace. The room is furnished with 4 velvet swivel chairs on brass legs and a top of the line, beautiful sofa sleeper with gel queen mattress. The handsome mahogany antique desk completes the space. In one corner, next to the fireplace, is a very clever and complete BATHROOM (2nd) with roomy marble shower with handsome glass door. Guests can use this room as a 4th bedroom with a very secure door. The great room where you enter and the well equipped kitchen complement the gracious living room along with the piazza to make a comfortable and attractive space for friends and family to mix and socialize in a typical Charleston setting. MASTER BEDROOM Off of the dining room to the right is a small but comfortable bedroom (BR 1) with queen bed, a pretty window and closet and an entrance to the BATHROOM (1) with a soaking tub/shower. This bathroom can also be entered from the entrance room so also serves as another guest/common bathroom. DORMER ROOMS Between the kitchen and the living room is a charming spiral staircase leading to two super charming DORMER ROOMS (2&3), each with their OWN BATH (2&3). These rooms have the oldest and prettiest floors of any of our properties The triple windows look over the rooftops and are a joy to experience. Each of these rooms has a King Bed with the idea that there is plenty of room for couples or singles that want the larger bed size to share. Of course the space is perfect for children but also a couple would be happy since each room has total privacy including closet space and desks. The space is under the dormers so a tall person will duck if getting in and out from the sides. The middle space in front of the window is full height. Let us know your preference so we can have it set up the way you want. We are really excited to be offering this latest addition to our ST PHILIP SQUARE COMPLEX. Each apartment has something special but this might be our favorite. It is elegant and provides an opportunity for our guests to receive their guests as a Charlestonian would. The three apartments in this building are all separate but connect through the piazzas and provide the perfect space to be together and separate.

Location

Nested within the vibrant Cannonborough neighborhood, St. Philip Square is a collection of 6 restored historic homes with a spacious shared courtyard that span an entire city square block of downtown Charleston.    Sitting neatly between Morris and Cannon Street, St. Philip Square is one short block from the hustle, bustle, wining and dining of Charleston’s famous King Street. Idyllically situated, we are less than half a mile to Calhoun Street and a stone’s throw from South of Broad. In short, location, location, location…   With our abodes originally dating back the early 1800s, St. Philip Square was carefully, intentionally and respectfully renovated by the end of 2020. Showing remarkable reverence for local history and devotion to the Lowcountry lifestyle, our accommodations have earned 5 coveted Carolopolis Awards from The Preservation Society and the esteemed Governor’s Award.   Acquired in the early 1990’s, St. Philip Square was grandfathered into offering permitted short-term vacation rentals by the City of Charleston. A rarity across downtown, this legacy allows our guests to experience the comfort of private luxury accommodations alongside the experience of true community immersion.     With an unprecedented walk score of 96, most guests leave their cars in our spacious, protected parking area and easily stroll down to the restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries and more mere steps away from their suite.    Marrying new with nostalgia, ours is a uniquely Charleston experience. Explore our homes and suites or reserve your stay online today.

Great setup for an adult family or group of adults. 4 bathrooms is key. We rented for CofC commencement. Highly recommend for similar group trips.

Great home to stay in, located on the second and third floors of a typical Charleston home. Plenty of bathrooms for all who stay. Also the most comfortable beds of any home I've rented. One thing to note: although the home sleeps 8, there is only one parking pass, but there is a hotel around the corner for easy protected parking.

This place was perfect for our girls weekend!! We loved the location—easy access to walk on King and convenient to hop on the freeway to the beaches. Lots of great restaurants/coffee/bars right around the corner. Would definitely recommend for a group of friends!!

Two coworkers and I rented this space for a weekend during a meeting downtown. Everything about the unit was terrific. Jamie was proactive in her communications with us. I'd rent here again.

Jamie is the perfect host! The house is very clean, nice and the location is wonderful, close to excellent restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay in Charleston!!

This property is even better than the photos and even better located than you could imagine and even better managed than one would think. Jamie manages everything beautifully and is not only super helpful and responsive, but also very kind and genuine (not to mention a very hard worker). We loved having the spacious living room to lounge in and the three bedrooms each with own bath made everything feel spacious and comfortable. The two bedrooms on the top floor of the building are amazingly quaint and I slept very well there. I would stay here again for sure and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Charleston who wants a nice home base and not the hotel experience. Thank you Jamie!

Jamie and the Bennett family sure so live up to the adage of “southern hospitality.” Jamie was so helpful in planning and was sweet enough to deliver us board games to play with during our stay and a wonderful assortment of treats for Thanksgiving. The house is beautifully decorated, super comfortable and has everything you need. We will definitely come back to stay!!!
