When eying rentals, tenants are presented with many options. There’s dwelling type – apartments, condos, townhomes, houses – price, size, and setting.

Most likely, renters take into account more than one if not all these factors, plus extra considerations such as looks, age of property and amenities when deciding on a residence to lease.

One such property in Dorchester County reflects the various options that renters can check out when searching for space to occupy on a nonpermanent basis.

The address is 215 Sandlewood Drive. Situated on the outskirts of Summerville, it is an individually-owned townhome that’s being leased out by the owner.

The two-story residence rises in a convenient place for traveling to and from town or even between a job in North Charleston or downtown. The comparatively moderate rent works out to $900 a month. And the property offers more than adequate space, containing three bedrooms, a full bath and powder room in 1,250 square feet.

Moreover, 215 Sandlewood Drive includes alluring features not found everywhere. “A nice breeze flows through when all the windows are open,” says Donna Miller, property holder who is also handling the rental.

Another perk: The property went through an overhaul in recent months and is “newly decorated,” she says. The townhome stands in Corey Gardens, a “quiet established” village located just off thoroughfare Central Avenue.

Miller pinpoints more highlights:

• Large family room with fireplace and sliding doors.

• Vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom.

• Kitchen with full complement of appliances.

• Separate dining room.

• Laundry room.

• Family swimming pool on site.

• Energy-efficient design.

The property is in a centralized setting, minutes from downtown Summerville and from the smaller community of Knightsville, she says.

Plus, for a family with young children, the townhome benefits from its proximity to Newington Elementary School in Dorchester school district 2, Miller says.

The townhome sits off Central Avenue. Heading north, take Interstate 26 past North Charleston to exit 199A, which is Main Street in Summerville. Make a left and follow Main Street into the town’s traditional business district. Take a right on Richardson Avenue, then veer left onto Central Avenue. Stay on Central for about three miles. Sandlewood Drive is on the left. Turn in, and ahead on the right flank of the townhome building is 215 Sandlewood Drive.
