Beautiful 3 year meticulous renovation on this home by the owner. Starting on the outside, the owner added a 12'x40' concrete pad to park the boat. Use this for addition parking of cars or the RV. No worries as there is NO HOA!!! The entire lower exterior was repainted, new wood shutters and new gutters were added in 2016. Walking up the stairs through the front door, that was replaced in 2017, along with the door handle; you'll notice the entire interior that was repainted in 2016/ 2017. This includes all walls, all trim and all ceilings. The hardwoods flow throughout the entire 1st floor (except laundry room that had waterproof LVT installed in 2016 and existing ceramic tile in the powder room.) Speaking of the laundry room, the water heater is in there and was newly installed in 2016.The current living room was the dining room and the dining room was the living room. The owner switched the 2 rooms and removed the wall between the current dining room and den to allow for a true flow throughout the 1st floor. The crown molding that the owner had installed throughout the entire home, was installed in 2017. You'll also notice the chair rail molding in the Dining Room and Living Room, that was installed in 2017 as well. All windows throughout the home were trimmed out with 1x4's and 1x6's in 2017. The main wall in the Den was shiplapped in 2018. New ceiling fans were installed in the Den and Sunroom in 2017. The kitchen went through a major transformation. Hardwoods were added by the current owner in the kitchen and the sunroom, replacing the old vinyl flooring in these 2 areas. All hardwoods (except existing hardwoods in the dining room, foyer and Living Room) were sanded and polyurethaned to match the existing hardwoods in 2016. The existing hardwoods on the staircase and upstairs foyer were also sanded and poly added to match at the same time. Back to the kitchen, the kitchen island, with wine cooler that conveys, was added in 2016. All recessed lighting, island lighting and pendant over the kitchen sink was added in 2016. The formica countertops were replaced with granite in 2016. All cabinets, drawers and doors were sanded, cleaned and refinished in 2016. Gas range, with double gas oven and built in microwave was purchased and installed in 2016. The 220 electric plug is still behind the stove as the gas line had to be run to accommodate the gas range. All new window blinds, that convey, were installed in 2016. Walking into the sunroom, off the kitchen and den, you'll feel the vibe of the beautifully tree lined backyard. The lot is almost half a acre, you have plenty of room to "spread your wings!" One of the double windows in the sunroom was removed and the sliding glass door and 11x12 elevated deck were added in 2016. What a awesome deck it is to enjoy some grilling and chilling!!! Electrical receptacle and porch light was also installed when the deck was added. The overhanging trees give some incredible shade that is sure to please. Upstairs there are 3 guest rooms and a guest bath. All walls, trim and ceilings were painted in 2016. The master bedroom is HUGE!!! A California King, nightstands, multiple chest of drawers and additional pieces will fit! The ensuite is very nicely sized with 3 separate areas. The first is where the linen closet is with the sitting vanity, double vanity vessel bowl sinks and granite counter top are located. The double sinks, vanity light, sink water fixtures and granite were added in 2016. The master closet is gigantic and you'll love it!! The old closet was completely ripped out and redesigned by the owner. This includes 7 different clothing rack areas (one designated for dresses), laundry basket area and a floor to ceiling shoe rack. The garden tub/shower area includes the commode and has room for additional furnishings or sitting bench. The entire HVAC unit was replaced in Nov 2017 with a HEIL system and should still include 8 years of warranty on the parts and compressor from the manufacturer. The entire ridge vent was replaced in 2016. You are going to love the garage. The garage is the entire footprint of the house and is the location of the 2nd half bath. Storage galore and room for all the toys, workbenches, tools, cars, low profile boats, golf carts, etc etc etc..... There were several receptacles added and a water line added to the garage refrigerator in 2017. Ceiling fan and electric bar over the workbench added at the same time. There was also a additional water line added to give a spigot on the left side of the home in 2017. This gives a water spigot on the 2 sides and backside of the home. All new brush nickel interior door knobs and hinges added in 2019. This property is 2 miles from Folly Beach. The owner has been there by bicycle several times. Walk or bike to the Ft Lamar Heritage Preserve, which is considered by some as the 2nd most important Civil War site in SC. Walk to the end of Old Military Rd and view the Morris Island Lighthouse.
