The crossroads hamlet of Bonneau lies nine miles northeast of Moncks Corner and a few miles east of Lake Moultrie.
Yet “Main Street” doubles as U.S. Highway 52, and Interstates 26 and 526 are a not unreasonable half-hour drive.
For someone looking for a rural lease but within shouting distance of greater Charleston, a possibility would be 1467 Main St. in Bonneau.
The 1,700-square-foot ranch house, built of brick and painted white, is for lease for $950 a month. Rental terms are for a year, says Marlena Franklin, the home owner and a broker with Coldwell Banker Commercial real estate.
“Probably the key thing about it, we totally renovated: air conditioning, carpet, bathrooms, kitchen — completely new,” she says.
Another perk is the sizable half-acre lot, which includes “a big fenced-in back yard,” she says. The property has an open “pole” barn where a tenant could park a sport-utility vehicle. There’s also a storage shed that’s hooked up to electric power. The shed includes a utility area for people handy with tools, Franklin notes.
Interior highlights of the house are three bedrooms, two full baths, a good-sized living room, separate dining area and a big kitchen. The redesigned kitchen includes all new cabinets and refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. A large laundry room with washer and dryer connections is another feature.
The home is across Main Street from the town recreational center and Bonneau Town Hall.
“I guess it would be good for a family, (being) close to ballfields,” Franklin says. The property would also suit a retired couple, or someone with a disability since the residence is one story and there’s just two low steps to the front door. “It’s a nice house,” she says.
The rental is in downtown Bonneau. Heading north, take I-26 to exit 209A, which is Highway 52. Follow Highway 52 into Goose Creek and on to Moncks Corner. Continue on the town bypass and cross the Tail Race Canal on highways 52-17A. Go less than a mile and turn left, staying on Highway 52. Continue for about seven miles to Bonneau. Pass East Church St. On the left before Black Oak Drive — the road to Bonneau Beach on Lake Moultrie — is 1467 Main St.
