This conveniently located James Island home offers stunning views of the water with a private deepwater dock, pool, and expertly landscaped grounds. From your dock, you can see the Charleston harbor, downtown Charleston and the Ravenel Bridge, as well as picturesque marsh and creek scenes for as far as the eye can see. The property is truly stunning with Shelia Wertimer designed landscaping in the front and mature oak trees and flowering shrubs in the back, creating the perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. Brick pathways wind throughout the yard and there is an idyllic walled courtyard, a blue stone patio, fountain and saltwater pool. Built-in seating on the dock provides an additional space to enjoy the beautiful views. The home was built in 1962 and was extensively renovated and expanded in 2002/2003 under the direction of architect Bill Huey. Inside, you'll find an open and light-filled layout, designed to capitalize on the home's waterfront position. A long entry foyer is accented with marble floors and built-in shelves and leads to an office with glimpses of the water. A spacious media room also looks out over the creek and features a wall of custom-made bookshelves, a custom-made mahogany wet bar and French doors to the backyard. The main living space encompasses a living room, formal dining room, kitchen and keeping room. The spaces flow together nicely, making it a great set up for everyday living or entertaining. A gas fireplace with custom-made walnut mantle anchors the living room, while the formal dining room has another fireplace and ample built-in storage. Granite counters, high-end stainless appliances, a tray ceiling and a large island define the kitchen while the adjoining keeping room is a great gathering place with a fireplace, built-in bookshelves and access to the screened porch. There is also a mudroom with a laundry area, powder room and guest bedroom suite with a full bath on the first floor. The master bedroom suite is located upstairs. Vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet, a separate sitting area, and a private covered porch overlooking the water define the master bedroom. The light-filled en suite bath also has nice features including dual marble-topped vanities, a marble shower and large Jacuzzi tub. There are three additional bedrooms upstairs--one with an en suite bath and two that share a hallway bath. All guest bathrooms have cultured marble vanity tops and tiled tubs or showers. There is an abundance of storage including a linen closet, a hallway closet, display shelves in the hall with storage underneath and large bedroom closets on the second floor.
â€‹The location is perfect. You are just minutes from downtown Charleston and Folly Beach, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Local restaurants, shops and major services including medical facilities are also located nearby.
