About 1322 Rutledge Avenue

Conveniently located on the edge of Wagener Terrace, East Central, and Nomo on the desirable and rapidly growing upper peninsula of Charleston, 1322 Rutledge Avenue is a historic house perfectly suited to several adaptive use options. Zoned General Business the lot sq footage is 4356 which could potentially include an additional building with ingress/egress fronting Montford Avenue. Setback requirements are also different for general business zoned parcels which allows more room to expand the current building footprint. Built in the early 1940s, 1322 Rutledge is a charming bungalow with historic character inside and out. It features a manicured front yard, welcoming Craftsman style front porch and traditional three-over-one historic windows. The interior has warm honey toned oak floors, original doors replete with crystal knob hardware, and historic windows that flood natural light into every room. The front door leads to the core of the house, originally comprising the living room, dining room, and kitchen, the open plan of which provides so many potential uses such as a shop space, lobby, coworking office area, or living room. The kitchen area features sliding glass doors to the back yard that bring light into the main core of the house. The kitchen has been recently redone with new appliances, granite counter tops, crisp white cabinetry, and tiled floors. Salvage barn doors at the arched original partition between the living and dining area allow the front room to transform into more private space for meetings. The recently updated full bathroom has contemporary fixtures and vanity, custom tilework, and a glazed walk-in shower. The two large bedrooms also feature original oak floors and trim. The primary bedroom has a large walk-in closet with a washer and dryer. Both bedrooms are ideal for private offices, and the closet/laundry room is large enough to function as a third office space. There is ample parking accessed by a wide apron onto Rutledge, with a two-car paved parking pad and a gravel lined side walkway that can double as a drive for additional vehicles. The 100-foot-deep lot provides a fully fenced rear yard with a deck and large lawn. It's close to the highway and easily accessible to downtown Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and West Ashley/James Island, and just a few blocks' walk to Santi's, Rutledge Cab Co., and other popular coffee shops, breweries, and restaurants. There are art studios and small businesses nearby, but 1322 Rutledge is also in the midst of a residential area, so there are ample foot and vehicular traffic opportunities for a business. It's also just a short bike ride to the Citadel and MUSC campuses and close to upper King Street and other popular tourist areas.
