The Magwood-Moreland House, circa 1825, is a significant, historic residence on the southernmost portion of the Charleston Peninsula. This notable piece of history was named as ''A Building Considered Valuable to the City'' in 1941 by the Carolina Art Association. It was also classified as a Category 2 structure in 1974 by the city of Charleston, one of the most significant and historic categories held by residential homes. This property is quite unique in that the beauty is not only concentrated on the interior details but the exterior details as well. Two notable, very ornate and beautiful fanlights grace the street and main entrances of the home. The interior of the home has many period details including plaster moldings, wainscoting, door pediments, hardwood floors, and original fireplaces. The living room and dining room are grand and generous in size and flank the gracious main staircase. The kitchen and open family room are also located on the first floor and open out to a glorious pool overlooking the Ashley River. The second floor of the main home has a beautiful guest room, master bedroom with an ensuite office and master bathroom. Both rooms enjoy the piazza overlooking the formal garden and the Ashley River. The main house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full and 1 half bathrooms. The carriage house can operate independently from the main house with its own kitchen, living area, and 2 additional bedrooms and 1 full bath.
The gardens are impeccably designed with a formal style garden in the front and a pool with casual living located in the rear featuring glistening water views. The lot is very large and currently has parking for several cars; this space could be developed or integrated into additional gardens.
