To the north is the entrance to a Charleston County park, to the south a sizable neighborhood. In the middle, things are Peaceful.
To be precise, Peaceful Way, a winding gravel street near Long Point subdivision in Mount Pleasant. Located in what's known as Palmetto Patch Plantation, the lane offers just six home sites.
One of the properties, 1854 Peaceful Way, stands for sale. The five bedroom, 3,285 square foot house lists for $1,045,000.
"It kind of feels like country but (in) a neighborhood," Laurie Langford says. She and Matt DeAntonio, both Realtors with Carroll Realty, are listing agents.
"When they built the house, they made a concerted effort to preserve the landscape," he says.
The house commands privacy. With a more than 1.5 acre lot - almost half high ground - and wide tree canopy, you have neighbors "but you can't see them," DeAntonio says. There's also a private deep water dock with floater on Boone Hall Creek.
Yet the property is hardly isolated. "They (the owners) walk to the (Palmetto Islands County) park all the time," Langford says.
"I think it's a great family home; kids who like to explore, docks for swimming," DeAntonio says.
Interior features include three bathrooms, screened-in porch accessible from a bedroom, oak floors, fireplace, crown molding, wainscoting in the dining room, central vacuum, pull-down attic, built-in speakers downstairs and a three-car garage.
The adjacent Boone Hall Creek is tidal but stands six feet at low tide. It flows to Horlbeck Creek and then to the Wando River.
"You cannot find a better waterfront property at this value," Langford says in the agency's real estate listing.
The house represents a "quiet country setting with space and privacy" yet it's close to shopping and quality schools, she says.
Custom built in 2005 on an estate-sized lot, the residence overlooks the historic Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation and borders woodlands of the county park. There's been one owner.
According to Langford, individual attractions include:
- Built-in bookcases
- Custom cherry cabinets
- Gas fireplace
- Granite countertops
- Hardwood floors
- Surround sound
Langford also touts the home's "amazing views from nearly every window."
On the first floor, the dwelling sports a full bedroom, bath and office. The oversized kitchen showcases stainless steel appliances, a host of cabinets and an adjacent breakfast area "overlooking the water and marshes." Off the kitchen are a walk-in pantry and laundry room.
Accentuating the formal dining room's classic look are wainscoting and crown molding.
Four bedrooms mark the upstairs, including the master suite with balcony and a large bath with garden tub and shower, walk-in closet, and "million dollar" sights, she says.
Langford trumpets the surroundings at 1854 Peaceful Way. "Enjoy the privacy and serenity of a property that stretches across more than 250 feet of waterfront and the only neighbor in sight is off in the distance," she says.
Showcasing its outdoor perks, Langford notes how a buyer can catch redfish from the dock, roast oysters over the backyard fire pit, or "grill your fresh catch on the covered deck and then serve dinner on the screened porch."
Peaceful Way isn't part of Long Point, so there's no homeowners association dues. At the same time, the sellers are offering a one year "tennis membership" at nearby Snee Farm that includes use of 18 tennis courts, dining privileges, social activities and use of the top-notch swimming pool.
The country-like property close to town has stirred interest from prospective buyers. "We've had a lot of showings," DeAntonio says.
Adds Langford, "It's really a unique space."
The house stands near the entrance to Peaceful Way. Heading north, take U.S. Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant, turning left on Mathis Ferry Road. Stay on Mathis Ferry to Whipple Road and turn left. Make a right off Whipple onto Long Point Road. Enter the Long Point community at the traffic circle onto Needlerush Parkway. Continue to the back of the neighborhood. Turn right on Peaceful Way, a dirt road just before the county park. Ahead on the right is 1854 Peaceful Way.
