Nestled on a 15 foot bluff along the banks of the Stono River, this elegant waterfront property offers true deepwater access and an ideal location just minutes from historic downtown Charleston. Spend your days relaxing in the landscaped backyard with mature trees, moss-draped live oaks, and maintenance-free turf. A heated, inground, low maintenance saltwater pool provides the perfect place to unwind with cool breezes and uninterrupted views of the nearby Stono River and Intracoastal Waterway. A stone dining patio with outdoor fireplace is perfect for entertaining and enjoying meals al fresco. After a long day, retreat to a free-standing pool house with a full bath. A short wooden staircase leads to the private dock complete with a covered pier head, floater, and boat lift. Delightin sweeping sunset views, glimpses of dolphins and seabirds and instant deepwater access with the Charleston Harbor and ocean only minutes away.
A brick circular driveway leads to the front of the property, where you will notice brick pathways, landscaped beds and a central fountain. The covered front porch with graceful white columns provides a quiet respite and welcomes you into the traditional style home. The first floor has multiple living spaces ideal for everyday living or entertaining including a formal living room, formal dining room, sitting room and river room. A wall of windows in the glass enclosed river room looks out over the landscaped backyard, evoking the Lowcountry lifestyle with expansive views of the river. There is one bedroom and one full bath located on the first floor, with the remaining three bedrooms and one full bath located on the second floor.
The home is in the historic Riverland Terrace neighborhood, a waterfront enclave defined by tree-lined streets, a community playground and easy access to the Stono River. It is within walking distance of the Terrace Plaza, which includes local restaurants, shops, and a movie theater. You are also only minutes to some of the Lowcountry's most exclusive attractions including historic downtown Charleston, area beaches, Saint John's Marina, Kiawah Island, and the Johns Island executive airport.
The home is situated on and overlooking the high bluff section of the Stono River, just where the river makes its major bend to the west. This opens a long and beautiful westerly view from the property, especially with sunsets. The fortunate location of this waterfront property provides both maximum access to the water ( via covered and open dock, electric boat lift, and large floating dock ) plus an especially beautiful vista.
