Overview / Comments

78 Society is in the Accommodations Overlay. So, the new Short Term Rental Ordinance DOES NOT APPLY! A rare opportunity for short-term rentals, commercial uses, residential uses, or mixed-uses with off-street parking in this historic brick Ansonborough home.

78 Society is zoned General Business, lies in the Accommodations Overlay, is in the X-Flood Zone (no flood insurance), has 3-4 off-street parking spaces (two in the secured 76 Society garage next door) and a basement (not included in the building square footage). All of this in a beautiful brick home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, double piazzas, original fireplaces, and a secluded courtyard.

Currently the property is being used as a short term rental, plus 430+/- sf of the main floor being converted to a commercial use. With two meters and GB zoning, the buyer of this property will have the opportunity to use this property for live/work, multi-family, short-term rental, or a broad range of commercial uses.

Located half a block off King Street, 78 Society is walking distance to wonderful shopping, restaurants, the battery, and all historic Charleston has to offer.

As you'll see from the attached floor plan, it's possible to subdivide this property into two or more units allowing a combination of short-term rentals (VRBO and AirBnB), long-term rental, and/or your personal residence or business. Let's explore the possibilities.
