As you approach this lovely creek-side cottage on Wadmalaw Island, set on almost 5-acres of pristine Lowcountry land, it’s as if you have stepped back into a simpler time. Teeming with majestic Like Oaks, wildlife and overlooking the Leadenwah Creek, few properties in the Charleston area have the allure of 1695 Summer Marsh Lane. A dock with a covered pierhead and a 9,000 lb. boat lift with remote were added in 2021. Another recent addition is a large screened side porch with a wood burning fireplace that will clearly be a gathering spot for family and friends as views of the creek, Live Oaks and the sunset can all be seen from this comfortable and intimate setting. Even on the coldest winter days, a roaring fire warms this beautiful space nicely.Once inside, you’re greeted by a well-proportioned home, custom built in 2004 with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. A cozy wood-burning fireplace really sets off the living room. Take the staircase to the unfinished second floor and you’ll find a large 800 sq. ft. space 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 no HOA and no flood insurance is required. The property is zoned AG. In addition to the house, there is a 24 x 36 garage/workshop with workbench, drive through garage doors on 2 bays and 220 power.
While this picturesque and private setting is right out of a Nicholas Sparks novel, you can still be in downtown Charleston in under 35 minutes and nearby shopping and restaurants are just minutes away on Johns Island. Unlike so many other places in the Charleston area, Wadmalaw has resisted development and tightly-packed subdivisions, meaning that the natural wonders of Wadmalaw Island will be enjoyed for generations to come.
