328 Evian Way

The front of the 3,647-square-foot Mount Pleasant home, priced at $890,000, is alluring.

There are plenty of alluring images at the front of 328 Evian Way, such as a classy Lowcountry design with large front porch and a row of dormers.

But none can quite compare to the scene out back, particularly from the family room. Try a panoramic view of open marsh, the Wando River and beyond.

“It’s one of those secret things you don’t realize until you live here,” says Dan Pape, listing agent with Carolina One Real Estate.

The 3,647-square-foot home is in the Evian community, a gated enclave of less than 50 homes in the high-end Belle Hall Plantation neighborhood, in Mount Pleasant. It is priced at $890,000.

The two-story house, built in 2000, has five bedrooms, three full baths and a half-bath. “A family is going to buy this house,” Pape says, noting the number of bedrooms, spacious layout and reasonably large lot including sizable back yard.

While nine years old, the house has been upgraded over the years and is in “like new” condition inside and out, he says.

Built on a cul de sac, the home is accessed by a twin flight of stairs connected to a circular walkway within the landscaped front yard. The driveway is slightly past the house and curves up to the three-car garage. Stairs inside lead from the garage to a door to the front hallway.

Upscale features at 328 Evian Way are 9-foot smooth ceilings; hardwood floors; a flat-screen television over the family room fireplace; and granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and gas cooktop in the kitchen.

At the back of the house off the family room is an open deck, and there’s a screened-in porch tied to the breakfast area. Two sets of steps lead to the back yard. Solid sliding doors link the interior to the deck and porch.

The first level also has a formal dining room, a study on the left side of the house accessible through French doors and the master suite with a bedroom large enough for a sitting area and an elegant bathroom that includes an exterior-tiled jetted tub and separate shower.

Four more bedrooms, and two baths, are on the second floor. One of the bedrooms has its own bath, making it usable as a mother-in law suite, Pape says.

Along with the home’s attractions, the cozy Evian neighborhood and broader Belle Hall community are draws as well. Two swimming pools, clubhouse, tennis courts, sand volleyball pit and basketball court are notable amenities in Belle Hall Plantation, says Pape, who lives in the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Evian gains privacy from its gate, which has a key pad with special code for entry.

There are two homeowners associations. Dues amount to $1,075 a year.

Pape says the neighborhood attractions and the home’s features are strong marketing points. But he acknowledges that the topper is the view. “That’s what will sell it.”

To see 328 Evian Way, get on Long Point Road either off Interstate 526 or by way of U.S. Highway 17 North to Mathis Ferry Road and then Whipple Road. Follow Long Point west and turn right on Belle Hall Parkway. Continue on the parkway for about a mile and turn left at the gateway to Evian. Go straight to Evian Way. The house is at the back of the cul de sac.
