Located on Johns Island, 2824 Ortega Drive is a like-new single family home in the neighborhood of Swygert’s Landing. The home was built in 2014 and has been meticulously maintained by the current owners. It sits on nearly a quarter of an acre with multiple palmetto trees and manicured landscaping in the front yard.
Inside, the home has an open floor plan with many upgraded finishes. Hand-scraped hardwood floors run throughout the first floor living space along with crown molding and recessed lighting. A formal dining room (with wainscoting) is located in the front of the home and transitions into the kitchen. High-end stainless steel appliances, including Thermador double wall ovens and a gas cooktop, are a chef’s dream while nice finishes such as soft-close cabinets, a tile backsplash and a breakfast bar enhance the space. Extending from the open kitchen is the great room which is anchored by a gas fireplace. This large space has great natural light from large windows and can be configured however you see fit. A sliding glass door opens to the screened porch and overlooks the large, fenced-in backyard.
One guest bedroom suite is located on the first floor while the other four bedrooms are located on the second floor. The master suite is not to be missed. The expansive bedrooms has private access to a second story porch with views of the front lawn–a perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. Other highlights of the master include a walk-in closet and an elegant en suite bath with a frameless glass shower, a separate soaking tub, tile flooring and a vanity with dual sinks. The other two guest bedrooms are well-sized and there is an additional room over the garage which could be used as a fifth bedroom of media room.
The neighborhood is located just twenty minutes from downtown Charleston and thirty minutes from the beach so you can easily enjoy all that the Charleston area has to offer. Johns Island also has a growing number of local restaurants and a weekly farmer’s market, while the neighborhood itself has a community pool.
