About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6 in beds only)

A fine home with a full size swimming pool that is located on a spectacular half mile avenue of live oak trees providing a peaceful cathedral effect. 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 at $350/night!

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. A true lowcountry experience. Walk, jog or bike the half mile to the Fine Arts Theater with four excellent 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. No reason to drive all over the place looking for Charleston beauty, it's in the front yard! The swimming pool (32' x 18') 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 with living spaces down and the sleeping spaces upstairs, 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.

This home is perfect for a couples getaway, ladies weekend or family vacation. A total of six (6) people would be the maximum, all expected to sleep in the beds and not separately on the sofas. This is a nice happy home, very comfortable in an unbelievable pleasant setting, very close to downtown - but quiet! It is a quiet neighborhood home in a lovely place and quiet is part of the ambience. Wedding participants , wedding families and any type of bachelorette rentals should look elsewhere. 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 Riverland Terrace, Charleston, SC, USA:
A truly unique southern low country setting with HUGE live oaks making a 1/2 mile long magnificent cathedral of antebellum beauty. Literally every renter texts me "wow! this is a special place". This is a primary residence I happily rent to those who want to be a off the hard beaten path at the beach, but who want to be closer to downtown 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! We do not accept ANY wedding related families or gatherings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting is unique, and many say it is a "nice 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.
