19 Hopetown Road is located in Mount Pleasant’s popular I’On neighborhood. The spacious home is located on a quiet street and sits next to the marsh, so you can enjoy Lowcountry living at its finest. The exterior of the home exudes curb appeal with a covered front porch, cheerful blue shutters and manicured landscaping beds. A wrap-around screened porch, with tall ceilings and ceiling fans, is located in the rear of the home with views of the marsh and lush backyard landscaping.
Inside, the home is bright and spacious, with nearly 4,000 square feet of living space. The kitchen and family room are combined into one large space which is great for entertaining or everyday living. Tall ceilings, reclaimed pine floors, detailed trim, a fireplace and wainscoting are some highlights of the family room, while the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with Calcutta gold marble counters, high-end stainless appliances, tile backsplash and a large center island. Multiple sets of mahogany French doors open from the family room and kitchen to the screened porch–providing great flow between outdoor and indoor living. There is also a formal living room, a formal dining room and a butler’s pantry on the first floor.
On the second floor of the home is the master bedroom suite–one of five bedrooms in the home. The inviting retreat has tongue and groove, vaulted ceilings and two window seats, along with an en suite bath that is elegantly appointed with a soaking tub, wainscoting, a tiled shower and two marble-topped vanities. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor, along with a contemporary bath with nice finishes. The fifth bedrooms is located downstairs. It is currently being used as an extra living space with a wall of built-in bookshelves and a full bath.
Another attractive feature of the property is the detached car two car garage with living suite above. The garage provides ample room for parking or storage, while the bedroom and full bath above (accessible through a private entrance) make a great mother-in-law or guest suite.

Shops, local restaurants and grocery stores are even closer, and there is a commercial district in the front of the neighborhood with a few shops and restaurants. The community has several parks, walking trails, a playground and boat ramp, while a clubhouse, pool and tennis facilities can accessed with membership to the I’On Club.
