About The Property
Waterfront Home on Wadmalaw Island
Three acres of highland with westerly views on Leadenwah Creek. 1695 Summer Marsh Lane is tucked away on a private gated road adjacent to other rural estates and farmland. Improvements include a custom two-story cottage with newly added screened-in porch, a 4-bay-door garage, pole barn, short dock with covered pier head and 9,000 lb. boat lift. Whether it be the birds chirping, deer grazing, or turkeys meandering along the marsh, this property boasts an abundance of wildlife in a classic Lowcountry setting.
The handsome 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom metal-roofed cottage is situated on a high bluff framed by moss-draped Southern live oaks. The screened-in porch offers year-round creekside views and dining, accommodated by ceiling fans and a wood-burning fireplace. Off the porch is a mud room that also doubles as an office. The house has hardwood floors, a full kitchen, and another wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Upstairs you will find an unfinished area of 800 sq. ft. that is ready to be transformed into a perfect owner's suite that could easily accommodate a large bedroom, full-bath, seating area and a possible office or media room.
There is a well house with two wells--one supplies drinking water to the house and one is for outdoor needs. In addition to the well house, there is a 24 x 36 garage/workshop with workbench, drive through garage doors on 2 bays and 220 power. There is also a large 20 x 48 pole barn for extra outdoor storage. This property is not part of an HOA nor does it require flood insurance. The parcel is zoned AG-15 and has approximately 400 feet of marsh frontage.
The rural convenience is unparalleled as you can be shopping or dining on Johns Island in 15 minutes and can quickly get to downtown Charleston in about 35 minutes. By boat you can access the Edisto River and are a short 30-minute boat ride to Bohicket Marina. Wadmalaw Island has resisted high density development, allowing serene privacy at this tucked away gem.
