Welcome to the highly sought after 118 custom-built gated community on Johns Island known as Grimball Gates. No cookie-cut homes here, all were distinctly built which may be why it was voted as the #1 Best Neighborhood in Charleston! Situated on a beautiful, spacious lot, this custom-built Charleston Lowcountry Single has endless benefits to offer. From the moment you lay your eyes on this charming home, you'll immediately notice the lovely landscaping, the mature trees, and the Southern Style double front porches. Step inside to be welcomed by gleaming oak hardwood floors, extensive crown molding, large painted wood pillars and custom woodwork and LED recessed lighting throughout along with top of the line plantation shutters, allowing beautiful natural lights as well as the option forcomplete privacy. The living room boasts a centrally focused fireplace nestled between custom crafted built-ins on either side as well as glass French doors leading to the front porch. The oversized screened rear porch with sunshades plus brand new dual ceiling fans and brand new screen doors overlook the fully enclosed (and well lit!) private backyard. The sod has been upgraded to the durable and desirable Empire Zoysia and there are also two separate patio areas for your year-round outdoor enjoyment. Back inside, the freshly painted dining room, boasting chair rails, pillars and crown molding, flows into the large kitchen with abundant cherry cabinets, tons of countertop space, a convenient built-in desk, and a breakfast bar. A sunroom/eat-in area off the kitchen offers a bright spot to relax, and the two-story family room has a huge Palladian window. Head upstairs to find the massive owner's suite with a tray ceiling, French doors leading to the second floor balcony (also a prime spot for sunsets), two walk-in closets, and an en-suite with a jetted tub, an oversized fully tiled step-in shower, and dual vanities. Two additional generously-sized bedrooms can be found on the second level as well as Jack n' Jill bath. A convenient breezeway connects the oversized two-car detached garage (with epoxy floors and with plenty of storage in the pull-down attic) to the home, which is also pre-wired for a whole house generator and has a full function irrigation system with rain sensing features. Both HVAC units and air handlers were replaced in 2017 with highly efficient and ultra quiet condensers (so you can enjoy the screened porch in peace) and the Hot Water Heater was also replaced in 2018 along with a new refrigerator. Brand new (similar to existing) neutral patterned carpets and padding are being installed throughout the second level on March 30 (a sample swatch can be viewed at showing). Psssst... The real hidden secret to this superbly maintained community is the 1.63 mile Island Trail Loop with scenic marshes, river views, and bird watching which is owned by the community along with 90+ acre nature preserve. Each evening, neighbors trek to the beautiful community dock via Golf Cart to share stunning sunsets, laughs and beverages together at the shared boat dock with a seated gazebo on the Stono River, and it is located very close to the Limehouse Boat Landing. This property is centrally located to Kiawah Island, Beachwalker Beach, charming downtown Charleston, and Boeing/Charleston International Airport. Come see this move-in ready home today before it's gone!!
