One of the best parts of living in Charleston is the abundance of waterways. Whether it is the Atlantic Ocean or one of the many local rivers or tidal creeks, you almost always have access to the water which makes swimming, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing some of the more popular outdoor activities in the area. Johns Island, located about twenty minutes outside of downtown Charleston, is a barrier island known for its relaxed pace of life, live oak trees and beautiful waterfront vistas. We have two WATERFRONT listings on Johns Island which may be perfect for those looking to live life on the water.
The first property, 2455 Gibbs Road, is a three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home. It sits on nearly two acres of land so you have lots of peace and privacy—plus great waterfront views. The property has been landscaped with over thirty palmetto trees to give you that coastal feel and there is a private dock complete with a floating dock and electronic boat lift. Views of the Kiawah River stretch on as far as the eye can see and provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy one of Charleston’s fabulous sunsets. The interior of the home has an open floor plan downstairs—combining the great room, dining area and kitchen into one cohesive space with an additional sun room offering great views of the waterfront. Subtle updates to the home include an updated bathroom, a new roof and a split-system HVAC unit for optimal energy efficiency.
The other property, 3004 Maritime Forest Drive, is located in Kiawah River Estates. This vacant parcel is 0.38 acres in size and is one of the best in the neighborhood given its prime position on Haulover Creek. Mature trees are found on the property—giving you plenty of room for a sizeable home plus a buffer from neighbors—and most of the homes on the street have private docks. Neighborhood amenities include a Kiawah Island Golf Resort golf course (Oak Point) plus a community crabbing dock, pool, clubhouse and tennis facilities.
The resort islands of Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island are located near both of these homes. The islands offer world-class golf and tennis facilities and Freshfields Village, located between the two islands, has popular local shops, restaurants and boutiques to explore. Kiawah Beachwalker Park, part of the Charleston County Park system, is located on the west end of Kiawah Island and offers ocean frontage and a river view along with the only public beach access of Kiawah Island.
