About Bob & Debbie Lowrey

Architect/Interior Designer team specializing in re-purposing properties in great American destination cities.

Bob & Debbie Lowrey purchased this condo in 2005

Why Bob & Debbie Lowrey chose Charleston

The temperate month of April on King Street with hundreds of people shopping, sightseeing, milling around, taking in the sights of 18th century architecture, and the 'buzz' of the city, sold us on this historic location. We can peer through our window at passersby (unnoticed)...great for people watching!

What makes this condo unique

Centrally located directly overlooking King Street. This condo has unmatched metropolitan decor. Book this condo if you want to pamper yourself and 'get away from it all.'

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
If you want a place right in the heart of Charleston, you've found it here! Right on King Street within walking distance of a weeks worth of site seeing. Immaculately kept property in the perfect location. We parked our car on our arrival date, and we didn't get back in until we departed a week later. I would highly recommend this to anyone who asks. Absolutely perfect ;)! An added bonus is the Thai restaurant right below. Fantastic sushi ;)

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from visiting Charleston, and are still talking about how much we loved this beautiful pied-à-terre! We truly felt at home, yet pampered in so many ways. This location was central to shopping, attractions, and so many restaurants. We appreciate the owner's clear directives and suggestions to make our stay safe and enjoyable. It would be a pleasure to come back again!

Serene retreat in the midst of Charleston buzz

  • 5 of 5
Staying in this wonderful multi-level "pied a terre" made our Charleston visit extra special. To be in the heart of downtown, and at the same time removed from the hubbub in a private, luxurious setting was such fun. The apartment was welcoming (wine and chocolates!) immaculate and quiet. Lots of modern features like dimmable lights, remote control shades. The owner was most cordial and helpful. He offered us the use of bikes and was accommodating when our departure flight was delayed. It's hard to recommend particular activities in Charleston, since there's so much so see and do, but nearly everything is walking distance from this spot. There's a great Thai restaurant right downstairs (NO noise or smells) and a little wine/convenience store two doors away to buy milk for the coffee so kindly provided by the owner.

Loved our stay here! Location was fantastic and the apartment was beyond our expectations! Quiet, comfortable, centrally centered....perfect. Texted Bob a few times to let him know we had arrived and how much we appreciated his beautiful condo and the wine he left for us. We would recommend this without hesitation. :-)

Hands down: The best stay in Charleston.

Bob & Debbie,

The loft was incredible. When we walked in, our jaws dropped. We loved all the gadgets, and you have done a phenomenal job balancing the high tech luxuries and capturing the at-home cozy feeling.

We both took advantage of the steam shower, and after a long day of traveling, was exactly what the doctor ordered. We flipped through the book and both were in awe of what you accomplished with the loft.

The before and after pictures speak for the hard work you put in and attention to detail you have for this space- you did not miss a beat. We appreciated the instructions for the place; while the gadgets are fantastic, the instructions were even more beneficial.

Although we didn't meet in person, we could feel the warmth of your character through the amount of effort and thoughtfulness you put into making sure we had a wonderful stay.

Thank you again!

Amazing Condo overlooking King Street!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful week in Charleston in this beautiful condo! The condo had everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very helpful in providing information. The condo is beautifully decorated with lots of extras. The owners did an amazing job renovating the place with lots of beautiful architectural details. The location on King Street allows for easy walking to many restaurants and shopping. You can't go wrong with this condo!

King Street is historic Charleston's shopping destination. The condo is located on middle King Street (known as the Fashion District) between Calhoun & George Streets. Clothing boutiques and designer shoe stores begin only a few doors down. Williams-Sonoma's new Charleston location is 1/2 block north, and Pottery Barn is 1/2 block south of the condo entrance. The condo is 1-1/2 blocks from Marion Square (Farmer's Market).

---------

Besides the history, besides the shopping, there is always a 'buzz' of activity on King Street. Second Sunday (when only pedestrian traffic is allowed) restaurants place tables in the street, diners enjoy eating outside and people mill about--just a wonderful, festive atmosphere...and you can see it all from our condo.
