Andrea Rogers realizes the residential value of centrally-located 225 Seven Farms Drive on Daniel Island.
"I call this the corner of Main and Main," she quips.
Indeed, the four-tier midrise climbs in the midst of the Charleston-based village's commercial district in Berkeley County. And while primarily office space, the building at Seven Farms and River Landing drives touts eight penthouse condos and townhomes.
The building's top-level models each stand out in their own way, although they all showcase dramatic sights.
Penthouse #302 in particular carries uncommon or one-of-a-kind features. The 2,044-square-foot property showcases a private deck off the kitchen. It doesn't attach side-to-side to any other condo. "One of the cool things is there's not a common wall," says Rogers, a Realtor with AgentOwned Realty. And the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath unit has a second level.
"This is really a hot spot," says Rogers, listing agent at 225 Seven Farms Drive #302. The property's priced at $479,000.
Among the interior features: The townhome sports a combination dining room and living room with built in bookshelves, gas fireplace and space above for a big screen TV.
"I like the ceiling-to-floor windows," she says. In her listing write-up, she says they provide "amazing views overlooking a pond with fountains, marshlands and the sites of Daniel Island."
The townhome sits less than a mile from the Family Circle Cup Tennis Center. When windows are open, the owners can hear the music from concerts, she says.
"You have all the entertainment you want right here," Rogers says.
According to Rogers' listing, the townhome displays a "large open floor plan" with crown molding on the high ceilings.
"It's a very 'entertainable' house," she says.
Off the living room sits the gourmet kitchen, touting GE Profile stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, breakfast bar and custom cabinets, Rogers says in her listing. A private terrace connects to the kitchen, enabling the owner "to enjoy those far-reaching views over morning coffee or a glass of wine."
A flight of stairs intersect the living room and kitchen. All the bedrooms are on the second level.
The master suite, Rogers notes, "offers expansive views, a large bath with double granite vanities, a glass enclosed shower, ceramic tile flooring, a 6-foot soaking tub and walk-in closet."
Two guest bedrooms share a full bath, she says. They both sport unobstructed views. One of the bedrooms has been remade as an office.
Rogers says the penthouse is located so that owners can relax "with the Daniel Island lifestyle, walk or jog more than 12 miles of trails or stroll to area restaurants, shops, churches" and businesses.
Reserved parking for each penthouse sits behind 225 Seven Farms Drive. Residents can reach their properties by way of private elevator access. All of the condos and townhomes can make use of a sweeping rooftop terrace.
While Daniel Island offers its own amenities, downtown Charleston and area beaches stand just 15 to 20 minutes away.
The townhome, built in 2007, went on the market about a month ago. "I've had a mix of showings," Rogers says. Perusers include young and middle aged professionals as well as some retirees. "For second homes, it's a popular setting," she says.
"It really is downtown living on Daniel Island," Rogers says.
The townhome building sits at one of the island's main intersections. Heading north, take Interstate 26 to I-526 toward Mount Pleasant. Take the Daniel Island exit and continue to Seven Farms Drive. Turn left, and 225 Seven Farms Drive is ahead on the right. Or, cross the Ravenel Bridge to Mount Pleasant, stay to the left on U.S. Highway 17 and take I-526. Follow the interstate to the Daniel Island exit. Stay on Seven Farms Drive to 225 Seven Farms Drive.
