1239 Peregrine Drive: Waterfront James Island Townhome
One of the best parts of living on an island is the abundance of natural beauty and easy access to waterways. Charles McIntosh’s new listing at 1239 Peregrine Drive embodies these qualities and also has a contemporary, move-in ready interior that will appeal to many buyers. Located on James Island, a barrier island just outside of downtown Charleston, the home is near the heart of the historic city but situated in a quiet, residential community. Local restaurants and services are nearby as are the sandy shores of Folly Beach.
1239 Peregrine Drive is the end-unit townhome so it feels almost like a single-family home with only neighbors on one side. The elevated construction home has an open, light-filled floor plan with the common living spaces on the main level. A large living room has a fireplace and access to the screen porch while the adjacent kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances and a large dining nook. The home’s three bedrooms are located on the second floor including the master suite. This private retreat has a large bedroom, en suite bathroom with a jetted tub and separate shower and exclusive access to the second-story deck offering breathtaking marsh views. The other two bedrooms are also located on this floor and make great guest or kids’ rooms.
In addition to the prime location and inviting interior, one of the most attractive features is the abundance of outdoor living spaces. The screen porch off of the living room is a great spot to enjoy a meal al fresco while taking in views of the marsh and moss-draped oaks in the backyard. The master deck offers the same views and there is a covered grilling area/outdoor entreating space underneath the home. The home is the closest to the marsh and has easy access to the community dock. It extends from the backyard into the tidal creek and serves as a great spot to go fishing or enjoy the magnificent sunsets over the water.
