Agent Remarks

Beautifully maintained waterfront home with dock on 13.8 acre tidal saltwater lake in the historic Fort Lamar subdivision! From the moment you arrive, you will feel the peace and tranquility of this lakefront community with quiet streets and large lots. This elevated home is 100% move-in ready features one-story living with beautiful hardwood floors, open floor plan and stunning lake views throughout. The great room boasts a gas burning fireplace and access to the expansive screened in porch overlooking the lake and flows into the eat-in kitchen complete with tons of cabinet/counter space, large kitchen island/breakfast bar, new microwave & Bosch dishwasher and pull out pantry. The kitchen opens up to the bright sunroom with panoramic views of the lake on one end and the formal dining on the other making this the perfect space for entertaining! The master suite features tray ceilings, walk in closets, outdoor access to porch, cordless top-down/bottom-up shades (that will convey) and a huge en-suite bathroom complete with dual vanities, Whirlpool soaking tub, heat light and separate shower. There are 3 additional spacious bedrooms, a full bathroom, laundry room with built in cabinets and a powder room with pedestal sink. This home also includes solar panels (which significantly reduce power bills), an HVAC system that is less than 3 years old, a security system (not currently activated), an electric hot water heater and is handicap accessible with an existing stair chair system from the garage to the main living area. Underneath the house is enough room to comfortably park 4 cars and provides tons of additional space for storage and projects. The backyard truly is an outdoor oasis with large covered patio and a private dock that was rebuilt and extended just 2 years ago for direct access to the lake for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and fishing. Best of all, there has never been any flooding at this property! This community has some of the lowest HOA fees in the area at just $120/year which includes the use of an empty lot on the lake that can be used for private parties or social events and is conveniently located just 2 miles to Folly Beach and minutes to Downtown Charleston!
