Just twenty minutes outside of downtown Charleston, 2269 Rice Pond Road is located in the West Ashley section of the city in the Ashland Plantation neighborhood. Neighborhood amenities include a floating dock, a boat ramp to the Ashley River, a picnic area and sports courts, while area beaches are just 30 minutes away. The three bed, two and a half bath home sits on the marsh and has a pretty backyard with mature trees and marsh views that evoke the true feel of the Lowcountry.
A full front porch welcomes you into the home and the interior is light-filled and spacious. The main living space consists of the family room and kitchen with notable features including hardwood floors, a fireplace with built-in bookshelves, granite counters, tile backsplash and plenty of seating with a breakfast bar and well-sized dining area. To enjoy views of the marsh, head to the sunroom. With two walls of windows and a glass door opening to a small deck, it is one of the best places in the home to watch sunset over the backyard and marsh. A formal living room, which could also be used as a dining room or study, is located in the front of the home and provides an additional space to gather with friends and family.
The home’s three bedrooms are located on the second floor. Two well-sized guest rooms share access to a hallway full bath while the master suite has its own private bath along with a walk-in closet. Since the home is elevated, there is also ample room on the ground floor. A large garage provides plenty of room for parking or storage, and there are two outdoor living spaces–a screened porch and a covered patio–where you can enjoy the views. Additional highlights of the home include plantation shutters in the living room, crown molding throughout most of the first floor, recessed lighting, recently refinished hardwood floors and a new tankless hot water heater.
