Excellent in-town location with easy access to nearby boat landing & fishing dock, neighborhood park & playground, dog park and walking distance to historic downtown. Our home was originally built on the Marine base at Parris Island as a barrack. It was moved to Pigeon Point Road in the 1950's. We purchased the wooded lot next door to our own home in 2001 and moved the home on it & began major renovations. The community is a quiet, residential community bordered on two sides by the intra-coastal waterway. It is friendly and perfect for walking, biking & fishing. The original design of the home is commonly referred to as a 'shotgun house' -- long and narrow. Upon it's arrival to our lot, we began renovation adding two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. It's evolution continued as we could manage with our second phase renovation occurring in 2008 to accommodate our aging parents. More space and comfort was created by adding two bays - one with windows creating a light-filled dinning space overlooking flower garden & bird feeder; the other houses a cozy gas fireplace in living area. A walk-in shower was added to one of the bathrooms. Extension was added to the rear of the home allowing us to add two walk-in closets and expand the screened porch for outside (bug proof) seating adjacent the outdoor grill. A coat closet was added in the hallway between the kitchen and dining room and doubles for extra storage. The home is now a full functioning house with roomy cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans, heart-pine flooring throughout -- complete with claw-foot bathtub off the master bedroom. Each room is painted a yummy color compatible with the lowcountry surroundings and colorful backdrop for our installation of Eric's oversize lowcountry photographs throughout the home - ever reminding guests of the extraordinary wildlife and natural beauty that surrounds them.
