Nicholson Street connects directly to the Savannah Highway Avondale area, and 26 Nicholson is in an ideal location adjacent to the popular West Ashley Greenway. The original 1944 ''cottage'' had two bedrooms, a hall bath, dining room and kitchen. Renovations by the current owner have created an additional bedroom with large, light filled adjoining full bath, an updated full hall bath, as well as an efficient galley kitchen with laundry area.The deep lot could make it suitable for a large rear addition similar to ones that have been recently built in the highly desirable, conveniently located neighborhood; or the bathrooms and kitchen could be upgraded for high-end long or short-term rentals. Pull down stairs in the hall provide access to a large attic storage space with natural light (Note: The house has been a rental property with a consistent leasing history since the current owner purchased it in 1999.) The detached cinder block storage/workshop space at the rear left corner of the lot has a garage door and is connected to the street by a concrete driveway with parking for three or more cars. The front of the home with classic dormer windows is shaded by trees and features a covered entry porch. The property is in the St. Andrews School District. In August 2018 Palmetto Environmental Solutions (PES) completed a complete encapsulation of the foundation of the house including cleaning all surfaces, wrapping all piers with poly, installing reinforced poly on foundation walls, installing 100% ground coverage on the crawlspace floor, sealing all foundation vents, installing a dehumidifier, and installing a new sump pump in the crawl space. The Palmetto Encapsulation Liner system is backed by a 25 year performance guarantee, includes annual inspections, and is transferable to new owners. Detailed information is available upon request. The home has hardwood floors throughout that have been recently refinished.
