1666 Back Creek Road, Charleston

Serene marsh front living nestled among a canopy of Grand Oaks, located on James Island, midway between downtown Charleston & Folly Beach. You won't need to go on vacation once you live in this home, you'll be on permanent relaxation mode. Spend your evenings enjoying a glass of wine on your back porch, watch the sun setting through the leaves of the trees or enjoy a fire overlooking the marsh on the chilly nights. This is a 4 bed, 3.5 bathroom elevated house sitting on a large 0.7 acre lot on the marsh in the Villages of Secessionville. Owned by an executive chef, the kitchen is professional grade and with a floor plan designed to entertain, you'll create as many memories in this home as the current owners, who are very sad to leave but are downsizing since becoming emptyThe kitchen opens to the spacious living room and the master bedroom is located off the living room. The first level is completed with office, laundry room and a massive screened in porch. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with two full bathrooms. The complete floor plan is available in the documents. The drive under garage has an abundance of parking and you can use some of the space for a workshop. The owners love that they can pull their boat around the back of the house and store it under the porch. You'll like the fact that there are no HOA costs and a very low flood insurance premium due the elevation of the house. Here are some words from the sellers about their home. Why did you buy this house ? We loved the lot, it's on the marsh, it's so big, we loved the Grand Oaks, the privacy & security of the cul-de-sac, so we bought the lot and built our dream home. Why did you buy in this area ? It's such a quiet area, we call it "hidden oasis of tranquility in a historic preserve ". You have to know it's here to find it and oh the views ! Where else can you get these views ? We both work downtown and it's only fifteen minutes to downtown Charleston and even less Folly Beach. What are your favorite things about your house ? The back porch, it's huge !! 500 square foot. We spend so much of our time on the back porch, we eat our meals out there, spend our family time there and every time we entertain, it's the hub of the party. We also love our kitchen (since I'm a chef) and those Grand Oaks are priceless. I can drive and store our 21' boat directly under the protection of our back porch( Protected) and we loved being on a cul-de-sac when we were raising our kids. What will you miss when you move ? All of it! Is it a social neighborhood ? It's very private no one bothers you, yet everyone greets and salutes & chats on the street. The neighbors are great people and there is an annual oyster roast too. What's your favorite place in the area for coffee/breakfast/lunch/dinner ? We got to Folly beach for everything !! Within ten minutes, we're at the Edge of America with its laid back beach life. We really like Black Magic, Edison, Smokey Oak, Aji Asian Bistro and Baguette Magic How is the traffic for your commute ? We both work downtown and since the Camp Road has been rerouted, it is heaven !!! It's 15 mins to downtown and the same for the home commute - guaranteed. Anything else you'd like to say ? Buy it you'll love it !
