Designed by notable North Carolina architect, Erle Stillwell, and built for the Maybank family of Charleston in 1931, 78 Murray is an outstanding example of a Colonial Revival style home, providing beautiful vistas of the historic Ashley River. This waterfront home has been owned by the Maybank family since its construction during the Great Depression and it has never been offered for sale. Set back off the ''Boulevard'' and quietly nestled behind two grand live oaks, the symmetrically designed facade is showcased by a pedimented entrance door, a blue stone terrace running the full length of the home, a handsome side gabled slate roof and two prominent end chimneys.The interior floor plan was one of the Erle' Stillwell's favorites, as noted by Buildings of History-The Architecture of Erle Stillwell (2006). Upon entering the home, there is a wide central hall that stretches the entire length of the home. It is flanked on the right by a sizable formal living room and sun room. To the left, is a library, formal dining room and kitchen. A gracious master bedroom with high ceilings and river views is located on the second floor, along with 2 separate guest rooms that share 1 bath. (One bedroom is currently being used as an office). There are 2 additional guest bedrooms with 2 en suite bathrooms on the 3rd floor. Other notable features include beautiful hardwood floors, wainscoting, interior paneling, moldings and a very handsome grand staircase. There is a private walled garden in the rear yard planted with some of Charleston's most desirable plants and trees, allowing for a true "Charleston" gardening experience. There is a wooden garden shed in the backyard that is currently used for storage and it could be easily converted into a 1 car garage. There is off street parking for multiple cars and there is room in the backyard for an in ground pool. If you are looking for a very unique waterfront home in downtown Charleston with history, a great location and outstanding river views-do not miss this opportunity!
