Originally built by George W. Williams as a cotton warehouse, the building where 5 Motley Lane is housed, was later used by Robertson, Taylor and Company to process cotton brought into Charleston from the plantations. The Property was purchased by the Weils family, who added the front section on Anson Street and operated a Mattress factory until the 1970's. The building was then rejuvenated in the early 1990's as three condos, with no formal regime.This contemporary three-story townhouse greets you with a black iron gate, brick entryway, and red door. The half bath is just off the foyer, which leads to the stairs and living/dining room. The living and dining room flanked by ornate columns, with a wet bar just past the stairs. The kitchen is just off the dining room to the right. Off the kitchen is the two-car garage, with a shower perfect for washing off pets or dirty feet.
Three bedrooms are located on the second level with one full bath and one bedroom has a loft. Behind a bookcase wall you will find one of the three bedrooms. One of the two hidden rooms in the home.
