The Cassina Group

207 Stono

The home at 207 Stono Drive was the second highest property ever sold in Riverland Terrace on James Island at $4.75 million. Provided.

The Cassina Group represented the owners on the sale of 207 Stono Drive on James Island. The deepwater property on the banks of the Stono River in the Riverland Terrace neighborhood closed for $4.75 million on August 5 — a record-breaking sale for the year on James Island and the second highest property ever traded in Riverland Terrace. The transaction was handled by Realtors Heath Verner, Chip Eiserhardt and Robertson Allen.

The Post and Courier’s Saturday Real Estate supplement featured the home in the June 6 issue of “A look at luxury: Cainhoy, James Island and Johns Island.”

Sweeping sunset views, southerly afternoon breezes and instant deepwater access are some of the most notable features of the property, which also includes a 3,790-square-foot home, pool and substantial dock and boathouse.

The Cassina Group obtained a contract on the property 41 days after it was listed and “is a testament to the strength of the luxury market in Charleston,” Owen Taylor, managing broker and partner said.
