The featured property this week is 150 Bee Street #611, located in the Bee Street Lofts at Lockwood Boulevard and Bee Street, just adjacent to the Medical University of South Carolina. This 108 unit mid-rise luxury condominium building overlooks the Ashley River and is the most desired address of residency among Charleston doctors, nurses, and medical students who spend a lot of time at MUSC, the VA Medical Center, and Roper Saint Francis Hospital. The close proximity to the hospitals makes is possible for some doctors to do their rounds and return to the comfort and stress-free zone of their own home.
The Bee Street Lofts provide luxury urban architecture, soaring ceilings, gourmet kitchens, luxurious bathrooms with whirlpool tubs and travertine floors, and shows off 11 distinct floor plans with 41 variations. Some of the lofts have a wine fridge, 20-foot ceilings (on the Penthouse floor), and designer stained concrete flooring. The gated parking garage belonging to Bee Street Lofts provides each condo with one designated parking space. There is no guest parking, however, that doesn’t really matter when you are working just a block away! A lot of people automatically dismiss Bee Street Lofts because of the lack of parking, but what they don’t realize is that is is a very green choice worth considering. With the best location for MUSC students and workers and reasonable pricing, Bee Street Lofts are sure to attract a creative, urban mind set.
150 Bee Street #611 is one of the more detailed and extravagant lofts that Bee Street Lofts has to offer. The view from Loft 611 overlooks the Ashley River and Brittlebank Park. The 6th floor is plenty high enough to be away from the bustle of city living, but just high enough to be eye-level with some of the best fireworks in Charleston. There are two designated parking spaces for 150 Bee Street #611, making this loft a rarity at the complex. The loft features 2 spacious bedrooms with huge walk-in closets, each with a bath and a half for guests. The fixtures and finishes in the bathrooms and kitchen are fit for royalty. Off of the gourmet kitchen is a separate dining room and the grand living area has a balcony with a breathtaking view. Listed at only $459,000, don’t let this piece of Charleston History slip away!

Marsh Winds condominium

- Marsh View condo on tidal creek
Spectacular views of marsh and tidal creek and only 500 feet from public boat landing. This unit comes with covered parking for two cars plus a boat underneath and an additional storage space! This is the best maintained unit I have seen in Marsh Winds, and it has all the bells and whistles including gleaming hardwood floors, ceramic tiled bathrooms, custom paint throughout and tile countertops, bar and backsplash in the kitchen. You get to enjoy the amazing views from almost every room in this end unit which is right outside the elevator as you arrive on the first floor. Two sets of atrium doors lead from the living room and the master bedroom onto the full length screened porch outside. Light and airy open floor plan just makes you want to sit and stare at the views. Absolutely pristine condition! Walk or ride your bike across the bridge to the restaurants and shopping on Center St., go fishing at the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean or just take your towel and bask in the sun on the beach.
