Estate Sale in Hampton Park Terrace - 549 Huger Street was built in approximately 1929 as an Aladdin Catalog home by the family of Harold Jacobs (Harold's Cabin). This Dutch Colonial Revival home features a full front porch with double entries, 4 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom up. Interestingly, this home was oriented sideways on the lot when built with the front porch originally designed as a side porch. The home is well situated on the lot and and has large back yard. The home will require some updating and will be sold AS/IS by the estate with the highest and best being responded to no sooner than June 25th. The strong sense of time and architectural cohesion seen in Hampton Park Terrace is present in no other Charleston neighborhood. Noted as one of Charleston's first planned subdivisions, the popularity was unprecedented in Charleston with over 200 homes being built between 1913 and 1922. Today, it again is one of the most desirable areas to live with many great restaurants nearby including Harold's Cabins, Purlieu, Park Cafe, Renzo & others within walking distance. The Citadel is around the corner with it's adjacent football stadium and the Joe Riley Park, home of the Riverdogs baseball team, is right down around the corner. The neighborhood also boasts city tennis courts on Congress Street and a public pool/recreation center on Fishburne Street. Our most coveted assets, of course, are Allan & Hampton Parks. Hampton Park Terrace is on the National Register of Historic Places and 549 Huger Street is noted as a contributing structure to the neighborhood. No restrictions come with this designation but it does allow for some interesting conversation!
