765 Glen Lake Court Two-story home alongside Mount Pleasant neighborhood canal boasts layout perks at moderate price

This two-story house on a pond at 765 Glen Lake Court in Mount Pleasant’s Glenlake subdivision off Whipple Road can be secured for less than $400,000.

In a market where seven figures isn’t uncommon, $397,000 for a four-bedroom house with sizable yard backing up to a pond sounds like a real value.

That’s a selling point for an 18-year-old, 2,203-square-foot residence with high ceilings in Glenlake subdivision, situated east of the Cooper.

“You’re getting a lot of home for the money,” says Margaret Hekker, who is owner and broker-in-charge of Lighthouse Realty Group and the property’s listing agent. The price of the two-story Mount Pleasant house works out to $180 per square foot. “There’s no wasted space,” she says.

While not the largest house around, the property is family friendly. It covers more than one-fifth acre and includes a fence in back, with a canal-like pond on the opposite side and a large-sized weeping willow on the bank. Hekker calls 765 Glen Lake Court “a very tranquil setting.”

Along with sporting sizable lawns, the house provides protection for kids and pets via the fence. Another backyard perk is a 12-by-12 foot workshop that Hekker says is “a good storage area as well.” A “cable-ready” two-car garage off the kitchen sports a side driveway.

Inside, the first floor touts a two-story foyer and sizable stairwell flanked by rooms. A standout feature is the eat-in kitchen with double pantry, stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, double stove with pizza tray and microwave. Other ground floor perks include a well-centered living room with big-screen television and wood burning fireplace; separate family room; and a formal dining room off the kitchen. There’s also a laundry near the kitchen on the back side of the house.

To spice thihngs up, the owner installed French doors and plantation shutters. Meanwhile, crown molding can be found in many rooms downstairs, and hardwood floors cover much of the first level.

All four bedrooms are upstairs. The master suite showcases a sizable bedroom with bright windows and a cozy bathroom sporting vanity sinks, shower and a soaking tub. There are two good-sized secondary bedrooms on the upper floor and a bonus area being used as a media center with ample headroom. The space also can be converted into a bedroom since it includes a closet. The house sports two full bathrooms upstairs and a powder room on the first level. Extra-high ceilings upstairs and down are another uncommon feature, Hekker says.

Another perk for 765 Glen Lake Court is its central location. “You are right in the heart of Mount Pleasant,” Hekker says. Interstate 526, Long Point Road and Belle Hall Shopping Center are all five minutes or less away.

Here’s how Hekker describes the house in her listing comments:

The central Mount Pleasant home in the “desirable” Glenlake subdivision, she notes.

According to Hekker, the residence is “ideally located” on a premium cul-de-sac lot with a large fenced-in backyard and a deck overlooking the pond.

The main floor, she says, “boasts lots of natural lighting and an open floor plan great for entertaining.” Standout features include the two-tier foyer, hardwood floors, formal dining room, an office-den with French doors and plantation shutters and a large family room sporting a ceiling fan and fireplace that opens to the eat-in kitchen, Hekker notes.

She touts the “bright” kitchen, which comes complete with stainless steel appliances including a new microwave and a large, one basin sink; generous counter space; a central island; and a formidable pantry. An “added bonus,” she says, is the 144-square-foot workshop with cable TV and air conditioning unit.

Residents are walking distance of the Mount Pleasant Tennis and Recreation department, a short drive to downtown Charleston and close to Interstate 526, she says.

Upstairs, “you’ll find a large master suite including a newly floor-tiled bath with dual sinks, separate shower and tub,” Hekker says. There’s more spacious bedrooms and a “newly floor-tiled hall bath.”

She dubs the address a “wonderful four-bedroom home with great curb appeal.”
