2455 Gibbs Road: Waterfront Beauty on Johns Island
If you’re looking for a peaceful, waterfront spot to call home, take a look at Dan Killian’s listing at 2455 Gibbs Road. Located on Johns Island, the home has all the appeal of a quiet getaway but it is still close to popular spots—including downtown Charleston (30 minutes) and the resort islands of Kiawah and Seabrook (20 minutes) which boast great golf and tennis facilities plus local restaurants and shops.
As you pull up to the home, you will feel yourself instantly relax as you take in the breathtaking waterfront vistas. The home sits on 1.9 acres so you have plenty of peace and privacy to enjoy your surroundings. The large yard abounds with mature vegetation including pecan trees, blueberry bushes and over 30 palmetto trees. To enjoy life on the water, just head down to your own private dock! The structure includes a floating dock and a covered boat house with an electric lift to make getting on the water extremely easy. Take in views of the Kiawah River and keep your eye out for native wildlife including egrets, blue heron and maybe even a dolphin or two!
In addition to the great scenery, there is also a wonderful home on the property. The current owners built the home in 1984 and have completed some subtle updates throughout the years including a new roof in 2011, a renovated bathroom and a two-zone HVAC unit for improved energy efficiency. The home’s downstairs has an incredibly open floor plan which includes:
- A cozy great room with built-in bookshelves and a wood-burning fireplace with a brick mantle
- A spacious dining area adjoining the great room and the kitchen
- A sizeable kitchen with custom oak cabinets, a pantry and a Dacor convection gas range (perfect for the baker in the family)
- A light-filled sun room with great views
The home’s three bedrooms are all located upstairs. Each of the bedrooms has hardwood flooring and tall ceilings and the master has an en suite bathroom. The hall bathroom, shared by the other two bedrooms, was recently renovated and includes a granite-topped vanity, updated fixtures and a tiled shower/tub. The home also has a detached 1 car garage with a large workshop.
