529 W Rice Planters Lane: Custom Home in Mt. Pleasant with Marsh & Golf Course Views
If you’re looking for a custom built home with high-end finishes and abundant outdoor living spaces, 529 W Rice Planters Lane may just be the home for you. Sitting on a generous half acre lot abutting the marsh, the property has beautiful vistas of the water as well as the nearby Snee Farm golf course. Mature landscaping, moss draped live oaks and multiple palmetto trees lend the home a great sense of privacy while the light-filled interior has an open floor plan that is ideal for many buyers.
Open Interior with High-End Finishes
Upon entering the home, you will notice the level of quality and craftsmanship that has gone into building and maintaining this home. Warm hardwood floors stretch throughout the entire downstairs; abundant windows allow natural light to filter in; and high-end details such as railroad moldings, built-in units, tall ceilings, detailed trim work and recessed lighting exude a sense of understated elegance. Highlights of the main living spaces include:
- Great Room: The central gathering place of the main story, this large room has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the backyard and French door access to the back deck. Built-in units flank the gas fireplace while the soaring, two-story ceilings make the room seem incredibly large and open. Other highlights include detailed columns, surround sound and a coffered ceiling.
- Kitchen: Adjacent to the great room is the kitchen which creates a cohesive vibe. This extremely large space is flooded with light from the numerous windows and a glass door leading to the back deck. An informal dining area is large enough for a formal dining room table and there is also a built-in desk. The owners have completed several updates to the kitchen including granite counters, new cabinet doors and hardware and stainless steel appliances. A mud room/laundry room opens from the kitchen.
- Formal dining room: Overlooking the front porch, the formal dining room opens to both the kitchen and foyer. Railroad molding, a chair rail and plantation shutters enhance the space.
- Study: On the other side of the foyer is a cozy study. A built-in wall of bookshelves provides the perfect place to store collectibles or books and double-windows overlook the front porch!
The well-appointed master suite is a true selling point. Located on the main floor, the light-filled bedroom has access to the back deck as well as views of the golf course. A separate surround sound system has been installed so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while relaxing in this private retreat. The en suite bathroom has all the features you desire including his and her walk-in closets, dual vanities, a jetted soaking tub, separate shower and WC. The remaining three bedrooms are located on the second floor. The upstairs landing is incredibly open and overlooks both the great room and foyer to create a light and open feel. On one wing of the home, you will find the guest suite. A large bedroom overlooks the backyard and has neutral carpeting, crown molding and a ceiling fan. The en suite bathroom and walk-in closet make this an ideal suite for guests! The other wing of the home has been converted into a media room which is ideal for those with children. This large room also overlooks the backyard and has a built-in desk as well as a large office which is separated from the media room by delicate French doors. Two identical front-facing bedrooms with built-in shelving are also found on this floor and share access to a full bathroom in the hallway.
One of the best features about living in the Charleston area is the moderate weather. Warm temperatures are prevalent throughout much of the year and winters are short and mild by most accounts. When 529 W Rice Planters Lane was built, the architects took this into account—designing large outdoor living spaces to be enjoyed year-round. The first of these is the full front porch. Accessed by a wide set of stairs, this space defines the façade of the home and gives it a true Lowcountry feel. Receiving the morning sun, this is a great place to start your day off with a morning paper or cup of coffee. Stretching the entire width of the home is the expansive back deck. Broken into three sections, each offers views of the backyard, golf course and marsh. Two uncovered sections (accessible from the kitchen and master suite) are located on either end and a central section off of the great room is covered by a vaulted ceiling. Adjacent to the marsh and enveloped by surrounding variation, the owners have installed a blue stone patio which provides a perfect place to enjoy your picturesque surroundings. There is also a small covered patio beneath the deck.
In addition to all of the wonderful features found inside the home, there is also a large area underneath the elevated construction home which provides additional storage and living space not counted in the listed square footage. The space has been compartmentalized into different sections including: a two car garage, a work out area, a crafting space, and a gardening area. Another bonus is the fully finished studio. With tile flooring, a built-in unit and the ability to connect to the HVAC system, it is added living space that could be easily used as a man cave or media room. The owners have also diligently worked with the Town of Mount Pleasant to insure that this space meets all current building and flood regulations.
Rice Planters Pointe Neighborhood
Another benefit of 529 W Rice Planters Lane is its convenient location. Positioned in the Rice Planters Pointe neighborhood right off of Long Point Road, you have easy access to all areas of Mount Pleasant. Popular destinations such as Boone Hall Plantation and the 28-acre Charles Pinckney National Historic site (with walking trails and a visitor’s center) are right around the corner. If you like spending time at the beach, you will also find that the pristine beaches of Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island are just a short 10 to 15 minute drive. Historic downtown Charleston, with its cobblestone streets, historic churches and world-class shopping and dining, is also just a short 15 minute drive.
Another benefit is that you have the opportunity to become a member of the nearby Snee Farm community. A clubhouse, tennis courts, pool and golf course are some of the amenities offered and all provide you with a social outlet.
