If you’re looking for peaceful living outside of Charleston’s hustle and bustle, this charming Lowcountry home at 1624 Lonnie Taylor Lane might be the perfect fit. Located on Wadmalaw Island, one of Charleston’s barrier islands, the house provides a peaceful respite from more developed areas of Charleston. Mature trees, winding tidal creeks and beautiful vistas are some of the striking features of the island. The Charleston Tea Plantation, the only working tea plantation in America, is located on Wadmalaw as is the Firefly Distillery, which serves up local spirits with a Southern twist. While it seems worlds away in terms of lifestyle, you are still just over 30 minutes from downtown Charleston so you can easily enjoy all the world-class city has to offer. If you don’t feel like venturing into the city, neighboring Johns Island has lots to offer including grocery stores, a weekly farmers market, a public library and a growing number of local restaurants.
The home itself sits on 1.34 acres so you can enjoy the peaceful sights and sounds of the island. A manicured front yard exudes curb appeal and the backyard is a true retreat with mature trees, a privacy fence and an in-ground, saltwater pool for those warm summer months. The home was built in 2008 so it has all of the contemporary features you are looking for including bamboo floors downstairs, an open floor plan, detailed trim work and modern kitchen and baths. Upon entering the home, you will be greeted by the entry foyer which looks back into the living room and kitchen. This large space is great for entertaining with the living room, casual dining area and kitchen all flowing into one another. Highlights include granite counters and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, a fireplace in the living room and an abundance of windows and doors opening the screened porch and backyard.
Two of the home’s bedrooms are located on the first floor including the master suite. A spacious bedroom is accented by a tray ceiling and hardwood floors and the en suite bathroom is a showpiece with a jetted tub, a tiled frameless glass shower and his and her granite topped vanities. The bedroom also has access to the porch. The home’s other two well-sized bedrooms are located upstairs along with a finished room above the garage.
