From the outside, the two-story house off Rifle Range Road has a cozy appearance. Various trees including a tall magnolia, shade the front yard.

It’s only once inside that the scope of the residence emerges. “The home was built in 1988 (with) four bedrooms, three baths,” says Dodge Hindman, broker with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate The Beach Co.

Other highlights? A vaulted living room ceiling with a pair of skylights and a balcony overlooking the downstairs.

The house, at 1394 West Point Drive, is being rented out. It can be leased now at $1,800 a month for a year’s term.

Hindman says the residence is a suitable choice for a family. The 1,600-square-foot home is in the West Point neighborhood off Rifle Range Road in Mount Pleasant. It was one of the earlier new subdivisions constructed north of what is now the Isle of Palms connector.

“Two bedrooms upstairs share a bath,” he says. Downstairs is the master suite. There’s also a screened-in porch in the back.

An open layout makes the house feel roomy. The entrance sports a carpeted bedroom and tiled bathroom with combination shower-tub on the left. There’s also a laundry with washer and dryer connections. To the right is the entrance to the one-car garage with driveway.

Down the hall is an archway to the elongated living room. Aided by natural lighting, the living quarters provide a central gathering area. On the right is a wood-floored space that could be a breakfast nook or dining room. It’s next to the kitchen, which touts a full complement of appliances and cabinets.

Off the opposite end of the living room is the master suite. A large bedroom with sizable set of windows dominates the suite, which also has a moderate-sized bathroom with sink, mirror and tub-shower.

Stairs near the front door lead to the second floor. At the top of the steps is the balcony. Bedrooms are on either wing with a rather large bath with tub-shower combo in the middle.

The extra-deep screen porch is off the rear of the house near a corner of the living room. It connects to the backyard. Fences are on either side of the lawn, with a thick row of trees forming a buffer with the yard next door.

“It’s been well rented,” Hindman says.

The house is close to the West Point entrance. Traveling north, get on U.S. Highway 17 and proceed through Mount Pleasant to the Isle of Palms connector. Turn right on the connector, and make a left at the traffic light on Rifle Range Road. From Rifle Range, take the first left into West Point. A few houses ahead on the left is 1394 West Point Drive.
