Want to live with dolphins at your doorstep and golden low-country marsh views for as far as you can gaze? At 2455 Gibbs Road, you can. This large, almost two-acre waterfront property is located along the serene Kiawah River on Johns Island. On the property grow many tall palmettos, pecan trees, and even blueberries bushes. Stretching from the lot into the tidal creek is a private dock that ends in a covered pier head. Spend time soaking up sun and taking in the breathtaking views while walking down the dock or spend your day on the water as the electric lift makes getting your boat into the water a breeze.
Nestled amid the lush green flora is a charming house with a detached one car garage and large workshop. Built in 1984, the house has been receiving updates since 2011, including a brand new roof and a more energy efficient two-zone HVAC unit. The house is full of warm wooden floors and neutrally colored tile. An open floor plan connects the separate rooms of the main floor. With built-in bookshelves and a wood-burning fireplace, the living room makes a great place to curl up and relax with a book after a long day on the water. A dining room connects to the kitchen, which includes custom oak cabinets and a Dacor convection gas range—perfect for baking muffins with those fresh blueberries and pecans picked right outside the doors of the house. An enclosed sunroom provides an alternate place to sit and relax.
The three bedrooms on the second level of the home are all inviting and have hardwood floors. The master suite includes an en suite bathroom and the bathroom shared by the remaining two bedrooms was recently updated with a vanity with a granite top and a tiled shower and tub.
Besides the beautiful waterfront features of the property, Johns Island is a great place to live, only 30 minutes from downtown Charleston and even closer to nearby island retreats. In the summer, get fresh produce from the Johns Island Farmers Market or go visit the historic Angel Oak Tree, Johns Island’s ancient, natural work of art.
