This almost two-acre property at 2455 Gibbs Road sits directly on the banks of the Kiawah River on Johns Island. A private wooden dock with an electric boat lift leads through serene golden marsh grasses to a covered pier head. Take your time soaking in the sun’s rays and watch for dolphins as your walk down the dock. Surrounding the home are tall palmetto and pecan trees and blueberry bushes to provide a shaded and private retreat while the open grassy areas would be ideal for a home garden.
Amid the shade of the tall trees is a charming two-story house with a detached garage and workshop. The house has been updated at various points in its 30-year history, most recently with a new roof in 2011 and a two-zone HVAC unit to improve energy efficiency. The main floor of the house is floored with hardwoods and tasteful tile. The kitchen includes custom cabinets, plenty of storage space, and a Dacor convection gas range, perfect for baking treats after days spent in the low-country sun. A cozy living room with built-in bookcases and a wood-burning fireplace is a great place to relax and a separate dining room offers a space for entertaining or family meals. Upstairs is the master suite and two other bathrooms. The master suite contains a private, connected bathroom, and the bathroom shared by the two other bedrooms was recently updated with a granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower and bath. All the bedrooms are open and comfortable with high ceilings and hardwood floors.
A waterfront location on Johns Island is a wonderful place to reside in the Charleston area. Enjoy Johns Island attraction such as the magnificent Angel Oak tree or fresh produce from Johns Island Farmers Market in the summer. For dinner, try the local Stono Market and Tomato Shed Café. The attractions of downtown Charleston are only 30 minutes away and surrounding resort islands, such as Seabrook and Kiawah, are even closer.
