House Description

''In the middle of the country 12 miles from downtown''Custom built single story home with over 2800 sq ft. on a .75 acre secluded lot in the middle of Johns Island; has the feel of old Southern country while being near everything you love about Charleston. When you turn down the road surrounded by moss-draped live oaks, you truly escape into the quiet country of old Johns Island. This home (built in 2017) has been thoughtfully designed to fit the needs of a wide range of families. This one story home is designed to enjoy the outdoors with multiple porches, an open floorplan, and natural lighting throughout. The main house consists of 3 BR/2 BA and a detached cottage that has a BR, Full Bath with Walk In Closet, a Kitchenette, and living area. The cottage could function as a MIL Suite Apartment for an older child, as a pool house (the electric has already been put in for a pool), or even as an income producing asset. Entering the 3/4 glass front door, you will immediately notice the open layout with LVP flooring, cedar beamed ceilings, and the separate spacious dining room. An 8 foot granite kitchen island below beautiful twin pendant lamps separates the living room from the kitchen while serving as a gathering space for family and friends. All of the appliances are stainless and the home has reverse osmosis water treatment in both the main house kitchen and in the cottage. Off of the kitchen is a spacious sunroom that connects to the screened porch and another open porch facing the butterfly garden. The master suite is located away from the other bedrooms and has private access to the back porch. The suite includes a beautiful full bath (tiled flooring throughout) with upgraded dual vanities, a spacious tiled walk-in shower, and deep soaking tub. A large walk-in closet is also located off of the bathroom. Located down the hall from the family room are 2 more bedrooms. Each bedroom comes with a full closet, high ceilings, carpet, and share a full hall bath. The home is designed for one to enjoy the outdoors as there are 3 porches (the porch connecting the cottage to the Main House is screened) and a sunroom to enjoy watching the butterflies and hummingbirds that frequent the property. 2 of the porches face a pavered court yard that is currently used as a butterfly garden. The back porches come equipped with fans and have enough room for rocking chairs and or a joggling board to enjoy the Lowcountry evenings. The screened porch connecting the cottage to the main house is the ideal size for family gatherings with a slab patio outside the porch for outdoor cooking/grilling. The cottage located at the rear of the home has been lovingly designed to have access to the main home while also allowing privacy. With 2 separate entrances, one can come to the cottage without having to enter any part of the main house (including the screened porch connecting the cottage to the main house). The natural light filled cottage has an open living room with 3 boxed accent windows, a kitchenette with reverse osmosis, a full bathroom, and a roomy sleeping area. The cottage has its own full size refrigerator, water heater, and HVAC unit. The grounds consist of mature live oaks that frame the home. One currently serves a the shade for a children's playground. With .75 acres, there is enough land to have a garden, a play area, and a pool.
