In this week's Above Asking, we highlight a two-bedroom in a converted Mount Pleasant mansion and a five-bedroom in Kenwood that recently sold at hefty premiums.
$36,000 Premium For A Mansion Condo in Mount Pleasant
Part of a huge Victorian mansion in Mount Pleasant, this 1,100 square-foot two-bedroom recently sold for $36,000 above its original asking price. The main room includes space for a kitchen table and a full couch set-up, and has tall bay windows with a window seat. The kitchen connects to the living space via a seated breakfast bar and has a built-in bookshelf, white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite counters. A porch with two entry points is spacious enough for a fire pit, furniture and a grill. Upstairs, the attic was transformed into a living space that would make an ideal bedroom or office.
