3024 Ion Ave: Charming Sullivans Island Beach Cottage
With great outdoor living spaces, a private lot and an open interior, 3024 Ion Ave is the perfect beach cottage. Combining casual elegance with upscale finishes, it is move-in ready and would make a great permanent residence or vacation home.
Sitting on a large 0.33 acre lot near the corner of Ion and Station 31, you are on the quieter, more residential end of Sullivans Island. Beach access at either Station 30 or 31 is right up the street so you can enjoy your days on the sandy shores of the Atlantic. Sullivans Island is an extremely bike friendly community and popular local restaurants along Middle Street (such as Poe’s, HomeTeam BBQ and Salt) are a short bike ride from the home. Breach Inlet, the body of water separating Sullivans Island from Isle of Palms, is also nearby and boasts great fishing and wind surfing. Mount Pleasant is adjacent to Sullivans Island and downtown Charleston is just 20 minutes away so there will never be a shortage of things to do!
Outdoor Living Spaces
One of the most appealing features of any beach home is its outdoor living spaces and at 3024 Ion Ave, there is no shortage! Upon pulling up to the elevated beach cottage, you will notice that the front yard has been well-landscaped with low maintenance tropical vegetation to give off a beachy and inviting vibe. The home is set back from the street so you have a large front yard as well as a garage for extra storage. Running the length of the home is a full front porch which has been screened in for optimal enjoyment. The porch looks out into the front yard and is a perfect place to enjoy the warm weather with a book, cup of coffee or family meal! The backyard is completely fenced in which is convenient for those with kids or pets. Another great entertaining spot is the oversized back deck. With access from both the master bedroom and living area, it is a popular spot to enjoy time with family and a built-in hot tub adds to its appeal.
Open Floor Plan with High-End Finishes
In addition to the prime location and outdoor living spaces, there is also much to love about 3024 Ion Ave‘s interior. An open floor plan is enhanced by great natural light and gleaming hardwood floors with easy access to both the front porch and back deck. Some of the highlights include:
- A spacious kitchen (open to the living areas) which has been updated with stainless steel appliances and butcher block counters
- A large living space which has been divided into a formal dining area and a family room
- A compact office with a built-in desk and bookshelves
Also on the main floor are two bedrooms–including the master suite. This well-sized bedroom has an en suite bathroom, a large closet and access to the back deck. The other bedroom functions as a guest room with access to the front porch and a shared full hall bathroom.
On the ground floor of the home, there is added living space. Three bedrooms extend from a central sitting room which is currently being used as a kid’s media area. A full bathroom is located just off of the media room and there is also ground-level access to the backyard.
