For some people owning an older house can be a bit of a challenge, you don't want to live in a museum but too often in their urge to update people strip the quirks right out of an older home. This home in Charleston, South Carolina is a beautifully updated Federal-style residence built by Dr. John Poyas, circa 1798. Charm? Oh yes, it has plaster details on the ceiling, amazing fireplaces and elegant columns. The owners have freshened it up with a playful use of color. The home has a formal dining room, an office and five bedrooms including a master bedroom with a walk-in closet. The kitchen is a bit odd, there seems to be a fireplace tucked behind a counter and the placement of the range seems to be strange but overall the home is beautiful. It also has a three-story carriage house. It is listed at $5.3 million. After the jump, beautiful shots of the robin's egg blue painted porches.
