Charleston house description

A fine home with a full size swimming pool that is located on a spectacular half mile avenue of oaks. While this location is a destination in itself, it also provides easy access to Historic downtown Charleston (5 minutes), Folly Beach (10 minutes), Kiawah beach (15 minutes), James Island County Park (5 minutes). Two night weekend specials available!

The home was recently filmed by an LA production crew for use in a cable TV show!
This quiet serene neighborhood is the hidden gem of Charleston as it loaded with huge oak trees with spainish moss and resurrection ferns, and it captures the sweet southeasterly breeze and sun sets off of the beautiful Stono River 1/2 block away. Walk, jog or bike the half mile to the Fine Arts Theater with three good restaurants, wine bar and club house.
The municipal golf course and driving range is also just around the corner, as are picnic tables and playground on the intercoastal waterway.

The ambiance of lounging in the spacious front yard under the majestic oaks with a good book or glass of wine is unsurpassed. Local artists come to paint or photograph the avenue, but the real experience is just to sit and enjoy it with a friend. The swimming pool and surrounding patio are so cool, calm and relaxing after a day of touring, it makes the Charleston summers a treat!

The house is traditional style, and has been recently renovated. There are three bedrooms upstairs with two queen beds and one full bed and two full baths. The master bedroom is especially spacious with a huge tile bathroom that has an open shower. Two of the bedrooms have large windows looking into the oak boughs covered with resurrection fern and birds galore, a perfect view when waking.

Downstairs there is the living room with a huge picture window looking out into the gorgeous front yard and oak trees, and an archway into the dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped, has a tile countertop, breakfast island, and has a gas range and double ovens. The den and a half bath are off of the kitchen and lead to the patio and pool. There are refinished hardwood floors throughout the home and it is furnished as a primary residence with quality furniture and furnishings.

The fourth bedroom is in the recently and professionally converted attached garage that looks out onto the front yard and live oak trees. There is twin bed and a full size futon.

This home is perfect for a couples getaway, ladies weekend or family vacation. Being there is a pool ALL renters must sign a waiver. NO DIVING.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2010

                              About the owner: I have lived in Charleston and the surrounding lowcountry for twenty years and have found the perfect spot, and am proud to provide to visitors to the beautiful LowCountry and Charleston area. I will gladly provide travel information and insights.

                              Why the Owner Chose Charleston:
                              This is a primary residence I vacate and happily rent to those who want to be a bit off the hard beaten path at the beach, and who value relaxation. All linens, towels, utensils, basic condiments, several bikes, etc. are available for your use - no more hauling your home in your car to vacation!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The setting is unique, and many say it is a 'nice little slice of life' . Looking out the front picture window into the huge live boughs as the spainish moss waves and the sunlight plays across the trunks, it is an active, dynamic view that is not often witnessed. Beautiful sunset views around the neighborhood as you walk under the oaks and enjoy the soft southeasterly breeze. After touring Charleston, then refreshing yourself in the swimming pool, you can walk or bike down the oak lane to the antique mall with fine arts theater and restaurants, or to the picnic tables and playground on the intercoastal waterway.
