The home was built in 2000 so it has all of the high-end, contemporary features you are looking for in a home. The Saltgrass Pointe neighborhood is a small but friendly community and has a desirable location within the heart of Mount Pleasant—near the Old Village and just minutes from Sullivans Island.
Stunning Interior with Open Floor Plan
Upon entering the home, you will be greeted by an open foyer. Beadboard walls accentuate the space and rich, heart-pine floors run throughout the entire first floor. To the right is a sizable room which is currently being used as an office but could also double as a formal living room or seating area. Just beyond this is the formal dining room which adjoins the kitchen as well as the front piazza creating a light-filled space. The living room and kitchen are combined into one incredibly open room which is great for those with families or those who like to entertain. This central gathering space has a fireplace, recessed lighting, crown molding, and access to a large screen porch overlooking the backyard. The open kitchen has plenty of cabinets, a center island, and stainless steel appliances that are sure to impress. Also on this first floor is a finished room above the garage which could be used as a kid’s play area.
Three of the home’s four bedrooms are located on the second floor including the master suite. With multiple windows, the bright bedroom is incredibly spacious with neutral carpeting, a walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom with dual sinks, granite topped vanities and a large shower. The best feature though is its private access to the second story piazza. Overlooking the front yard and neighborhood streetscape, this large porch is the perfect spot to relax and unwind with a cup of coffee while reading the morning paper. A porch swing adds to the ambiance and dual ceilings fans make it enjoyable even in the warmer months. The two additional bedrooms on this floor are a decent size and share a Jack and Jill style full bath.
The topmost floor of the home houses the fourth bedroom. A converted attic, this spacious living area has a defined bedroom nook and adjoining full bath. There is also a seating area, built-ins and walk-in access to the unfinished attic space for additional storage. It makes a perfect spot for kid’s or teenagers to hang and could also double as a nice guest suite.
The exterior of 824 Marsh Grove Ave is equally impressive. The home sits on a corner lot surrounded by mature trees and recently refreshed landscaping. Dual piazzas on the first and second floors creating a classic Lowcountry façade and provide a great place to enjoy the temperate Charleston weather. The screen porch off of the living area is an added bonus and the perfect place to enjoy a meal in the fresh air without the hassle of bugs! The backyard is small but efficient and completely fenced in for your peace of mind. There is also a one-car garage and private driveway which can be used for parking or storing your outdoor equipment.
An added bonus of the home is its convenient location. The tree-lined, coastal neighborhood of the Old Village is well within biking distance and boasts many colorful shops and restaurants. Shem Creek, the old Pitt Street Bridge, Alhambra Hall and other Mount Pleasant points of interest are also well within reach and the beautiful beaches of Sullivans Island are just over two miles away.
