A ranch style house in Hickory Farms stands out for its 4,392-square-foot size, outside attractions including guest house and saltwater pool, 2.01 acre home site and interior finery such as Travertine floors and vanity sinks in the master bedroom. But it's an overriding flexibility that distinguishes 3106 Winners Circle west of the Ashley.
According to Susan LeHoullier, the property "could be for families, professionals who like to entertain, or maybe with a college student who lives over the garage, lot of options."
LeHoullier, Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and fellow Coldwell Banker agent Barbara Shaw in the Centre Pointe office, list the 21-year-old residence for $849,900. She based the price on a recent appraisal; The five-bedroom, three-bathroom and two half-bath property went up for sale in mid August. "It's just a comfortable home, beautifully decorated," she says. "Plus the amount of light is just phenomenal, she says.
Notably, 3106 Winners Circle flows from a broad front porch and red entrance door through to a sitting room bordered by decorative columns, a casual family area with wide screen television and gas fireplace with stone surround below the vaulted ceiling and then outdoors to the back patio, pool and lawn. High-end tile floors and crown molding highlight much of the interior.
Off the foyer are a formal dining room and the spacious kitchen, which looks out over the pool and boasts stainless steel appliances and cherry cabinets.
Five bedrooms occupy wings on either side of the living and family rooms. The master suite stands out, sporting a tray ceiling and European-style built in sinks and drawers within the bedroom. The adjacent bathroom sports a block glass shower and ceramic tile. There's access to the back deck: "You can walk out in the morning for coffee and have your privacy," she says. Two guest bedrooms are being used as a study-library and an office.
On the north side of the house, stairs lead to a finished room above the oversized garage that's been transformed into a fitness center.
A small building off the pool contains the 500-square-foot guest house, which includes covered porch with flat-screen TV, laundry space, kitchenette and a two-bay garage on the first level and oak stairs leading to a second-floor bedroom with bath. She says the guest house would make "a perfect apartment for an in-law, teenager or caregiver -- or the ultimate man-cave."
The pool also leads to a door to the oversized laundry room and in a unusual fixture, a urinal in the half-bath across the hall. A two-car garage attached to the north end of the house is large enough for a shop and workbench area.
As part of her listing information, LeHoullier calls the house off Bees Ferry Road "Southern living at its finest. The curb appeal is something you must see to fully experience," she says, citing the entry deck with rocking chairs. The residence sits four miles from Interstate 526 and Roper St. Francis Hospital. Natural light flows through the "open, airy layout," and showy ceiling fans keep temperatures down.
The Hickory Farms neighborhood, she says, is a "hidden West Ashley gem that offers large acreage and the opportunity to keep horses right in the heart of Charleston. Envision coming home to a sprawling yard adorned with palm trees, grand oaks and horses grazing in your neighbors' yard," LeHoullier says.
