Nestled within a canopy of grand live oaks, this picturesque .84-acre property overlooks Charleston Harbor in one of the most sought-after iconic waterfront locations in Charleston, offering panoramic views of the Harbor, the historic Charleston Peninsula, The Ravenel Bridge and Fort Sumter.
Built in 1968, this ''vintage'' home's design blends Mediterranean and Contemporary architecture and was inspired by the ambiance of a residence featured in the January 1962 publication of House & Garden magazine.
Supplements: The circular driveway and lush gardens afford privacy while welcoming you into the home through a charming entry courtyard, with towering bamboo, specimen plantings, stucco walls, iron work and a reflection pond. A decorative, wood-paneled door and sliding glass doors offer several access into the home from the courtyard.
The residence boasts exceptional views from nearly every room and offers a functional floor plan with generous size rooms, ideal for entertaining. Interior features include plaster walls, redwood beamed vaulted ceilings with tongue & groove planking, and terra cotta flooring. The first floor is comprised of a living-gathering room that features a wood burning fireplace with dual access to the screened porch, spacious dining room, an expansive galley kitchen that was fully renovated in 2019, and a family media room. The gallery hallway leads to the first floor Primary Bedroom ensuite with walk-in closet and a wall of sliding glass doors opening onto the terrace patio. A guest bedroom and full bath complete the first floor living area. The tucked-away staircase leads to the second floor living space where two guest bedrooms, with shared bath and balcony, enjoy the waterfront views and direct access to the terrace patio below. Maritime balcony rails were installed, and all the bathrooms were renovated in 2019. The roof was replaced in 2015 and a new water heater was installed in early 2023. Currently, the owners have a Dock Permit application in process for a 260ft dock, with the intent to transfer to a buyer. Charleston Harbor's normal tidal water fluctuations are 0'-7' throughout the day.
Just minutes to Historic Charleston and the Low Country beaches, this well-established community is golf-cart friendly and ideal for walking or biking, with dining and shopping options nearby. In addition, the home is within walking distance to the James Island Yacht Club, Demetre Park, Pickney Park, the SC DNR complex and an additional park planned for the 23-acre waterfront property in May Forest recently purchased by the State.
The property's premier location, private serene setting on nearly an acre, and stunning Harbor views, offers an exceptional opportunity to upgrade, make additions, entirely rebuild ...or simply enjoy the incredible sunsets!
