Located less than two miles from downtown Charleston, The Crescent is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in West Ashley. In addition to being very close to downtown, it is also located within walking distance of the South Windermere Center, which has local shops, restaurants, a spa, organic grocery store, public library and more. It is also close to several public boat landings so you can easily get out and explore the surrounding waterways.
Our featured listing at 9 Johnson Road is located in the heart of the neighborhood and backs up to the central lake. The home is set back from the road and exudes curb appeal. The interior has been artfully updated and features an inviting floor plan. A central foyer, with two-story ceilings, welcomes you into the home. A formal living room is located to the left and features a fireplace, built-in bookshelves and a large bay window, all painted a sleek shade of navy. Across the hall is the formal dining room which also has a large window and fireplace.
In the back of the home, the great room and eat-in kitchen are combined into one cohesive space which is great for everyday living or entertaining. Multiple sets of French glass doors open from the great room to the backyard–creating great cohesion between indoor and outdoor living. Built-in bookshelves, a coffered ceiling and fireplace are other features of note in the great room, while the adjoining kitchen is outfitted with a marble-topped center island, custom cabinets, high-end stainless appliances and stylish fixtures. There is also a large wet bar, complete with two wine fridges and storage, and a well-sized dining nook which can easily accommodate eight.
The home has five bedrooms, with the master suite located on the second floor. The large, light-filled bedroom features a fireplace, tall ceilings and access to a private, partially covered porch overlooking the water. The en suite bath is elegantly appointed with a soaking tub, shower, tile floors and counters. The second floor has three additional bedrooms and two full baths. There is also a guest bedroom suite on the first floor, which has views of the lake along with an en suite bath.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Another highlight of the home is its amazing outdoor living spaces. Opening from the great room is a large covered outdoor room, which features a fireplace, TV and great views of the lake. There is also a large infinity edge pool and an additional covered porch. Large live oak trees dot the backyard and the property adjoins the lake.
