Close to downtown, parks and thoroughfares, Wagener Terrace enjoys regard as a neighborly, outdoorsy community.

The subdivision, north of Hampton Park, provides perks for individuals, couples and families looking to lease. In many cases, they’re able to rent well-constructed, older homes with large yards and ample porches.

If that’s of interest, consider 175 San Souci St.

Aaron Silverman, property-manager-in-charge of Blue Water Property Management LLC, describes the two-story home as a “lovely renovated 1938 Wagener Terrace bungalow.” He’s renting the home for $2,250 a month.

Along with its venerable appeal, the property offers another attraction: It’s “situated on a large corner lot steps away from the Ashley River and Hester Park” — now Corrine Jones Park, he says.

The 1,600-square-foot residence shows off three bedrooms, one full bath and a half bath. Hardwood floors mark the living quarters.

The first floor takes in two bedrooms, living room with fireplace, a formal dining room and mudroom. The kitchen shows off a breakfast nook, and appliances include refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven and microwave.

Upstairs, the house contains a “large bedroom or rec room,” and a second room versatile enough to be turned into an office, library, game room or nursery, Silverman says.

The property manager also noted the rental dwelling’s proximity to colleges and open spaces.

“The home is only a short drive to the many downtown schools: Medical University of South Carolina, College of Charleston (undergraduate and graduate), The Citadel, Charleston School of Law and The Art Institute of Charleston,” he says.

Hampton Park, one of the city’s largest parks, stands a few blocks away to the south, Silverman says. The park’s 63.9 acres are “closed to traffic for a few hours several days a week to enable walkers, runners, bikers to exercise without worrying about traffic,” he says. A dog park has opened on Grove Street.

Silverman cites a slew of additional indoor extras. They include a covered front porch; hallway closet; attic storage; heating, ventilation and air conditioning system; ceiling fans; and washer and dryer.

Pets are permitted, with restrictions. A fenced-in yard marks another perk that highlights the property’s outdoor flavor.

“Since the home is a corner lot, there is ample street parking directly in front of and beside the home,” Silverman says.

The house sits toward the western tip of San Souci Street. Navigating from downtown, take Meeting Street north, crossing Calhoun Street. Continue up the peninsula past the Interstate 26-Ravenel Bridge on-ramps. About eight blocks past the Grove Street intersection, take a left on San Souci. Follow the street almost to its terminus. Ahead is 175 San Souci St.
