About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, + heated 4th bedroom/study

This home is not available for rent at this time for all of 2017. This is a fine home with a full size swimming pool that is located on a spectacular half mile avenue of antebellum huge live oak trees providing a unique peaceful cathedral shaded view. 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).

The home is so beautiful it 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, golf cart 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, playground and boat ramp 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. Artists come to paint or photograph the avenue in front of the house, 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' with brand new liner) and surrounding patio with pergola and shaded sitting area are so cool, calm and relaxing after a day of work or touring, it makes the Charleston summers a treat! Really, jog the neighborhood, bike with the kids and cool off in the pool ! The pool is currently being relined and concrete patio expanded, new photo will be up soon.

The house is traditional style at 2400 sq ft 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 tarrezo 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, double paned and double hung vinyl windows, freshly painted and for and improved for over ten years . If needed the furnishings can be included down to the flatware to be used as a fully furnished second home (with the exception of the living room rug, coffee table and several paintings).

There is also a 400 sq sf professionally converted study/bedroom with a potential plumbed bathroom for a "mother in law suite" looking out into the live oaks and also a laundry and work room, both with double french doors leading to the driveway. This is included in the 2400 square foot calculations.

This is a beautiful home, very comfortable in an unbelievably pleasant setting, very close to downtown - but quiet and no traffic - like a cul-de-sac ! The elementary school is Montessori, and the High School includes an International Bachelarotte Program.

NOTE : The land elevation is 23' high ! ! and no flood insurance is required !! AND it is the only neighborhood east of Highway 17 anywhere that the SC State WInd Pool Insurance is not required, this is a huge insurance savings and also a very safe place to live and invest in a home.

This is the most beautiful place in the LowCountry I have ever seen over 25 years, and the safest for long term home safety and investment. A Special place for a special family!

Please contact me at 843-860-2570 for serious inquires only. The asking price is $675,000 and brokers are not protected or needed, as this is a jewel !

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.
