Renovated in 1990 by Robert Chesnut and featured in Southern Living , this understated waterfront home has sweeping views across the marshes of James Island Creek, and quick access to the Charleston Harbor from the deep water dock. Still owned by the family who built it in 1961, this Lawton Bluff home is just minutes away from historic downtown.Built into a high bluff, when seen from the front, this appears to be a single story. It has an unassuming charm, with native shrubbery, live oaks and crepe myrtles. A brick walkway leads the the front entrance, which is flanked by columns and copper lanterns.Approached from the rear, this home reveals its two-story grandeur, with plenty of glass for views of sunsets over James Island Creek, an upper sun deck and slate porch. From the porch, you are steps away over a tabby and brick walk, from the water, 16'x16' pier, 10'x20' floating dock, and 7,500 lb boat lift.

The outdoor living spaces are a natural extension of the home and epitomize the essence of life in the Lowcountry. A patio and covered porch is the perfect spot to relax, taking in the stunning marsh and creek views. The backyard is ideal for summer afternoons, grilling out with family and friends while the kids play on the tree swing.

The 4,255 square foot home pairs modern conveniences with sophisticated details and hardwood floors. Ample living and dining spaces, which open for circulation to the porches, backyard, and dock, make it a perfect home for entertaining.

A split-level residence, it winds around starting from the foyer, through a large living room with 12' ceilings and triple crown molding, and a gas fireplace finely detailed, including a marble surround; down to a formal dining room with 13' ceilings and crown molding, a crystal chandelier and sconces, and glass french doors opening out to a patio with views of the water; through to a modern kitchen and breakfast room with granite countertops, a large center island, custom cabinets, a full wet bar, and sliding glass doors that open to the porch and a wide view of the creek; finally to an adjoining den made cozy by a brick hearth and gas fireplace, more views of the water, and built-in bookshelves. From the den is a central staircase which takes you back to the foyer, and the bedrooms upstairs.

From a hallway off the foyer, is an expansive master suite with hardwood floors, and three sets of sliding glass doors with incredible views, opening to a private sun deck overlooking the creek. At one end of the bedroom are built-in bookshelves, and the entry door to a large cedar-lined walk-in storage closet. The master suite has plenty of additional storage with a linen closet and two large clothing closets. Marble floors are throughout the spacious master bathroom, which looks out underneath a grand live-oak to the creek. It has a soaking tub with water jets, a walk-in glass and marble shower, and dual vanities, including one with a makeup counter.

Across the hallway are two more bedrooms, each with hardwood floors and built-in closets. At the end of the hallway is a shared full bathroom with a separate entrance for the corner bedroom.

Back downstairs, you will find a bonus room off of the main den with a sliding glass door that opens to the tabby patio grilling area with a natural gas outlet. A painted concrete floor makes it a great man-cave or landing room for those days spent on the water. Lastly, tucked away under the front bedrooms, is a half bath, a spacious laundry room, and a utility room with a built-in workbench. The utility room has a second entry door from the carport.

Premier appliances include a Dacor stove, Frigidaire double ovens, and GE Monogram refrigerator and freezer.
