Agent Remarks

Nestled in the heart of Old Summerville on one of the original streets of this Charleston suburb is a gorgeous brick home that captures the essence of Summerville's motto - "Where the past is still present." This historic Southern home, once known as ''Oak Haven,'' exudes a peace and tranquility under the ancient live oaks. The expansive grounds create a private retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city's Main Street. When you step onto the welcoming front porch, you want to sit for a while and enjoy a glass of sweet tea. The elegant front door, surrounded by a Palladian fan-style glass, speaks to a time in architectural history where function began to meet form in the graceful accents and details. Allow yourself to step back in time through this spacious foyer... ...where the historical charm of years past blends with the modern conveniences of the present. Formal dining and living rooms flank the grand entryway and were a part of the original floor plan when this home was built in the late 1800's. Large windows allow plenty of sunlight, and the gas fireplaces in each room create an inviting ambiance. Additions to the home were made in the mid-1900's and expanded the main level to include a large family room, modern kitchen, breakfast nook and four bedrooms. This renovation is seamless, continuing the warm heart of pine flooring throughout the home and replicating the details of the original architectural designs. The open kitchen and family room allow everyone to feel connected. Enjoy your morning coffee in the breakfast nook just off the kitchen -- open the doors onto the small balcony and feel the fresh morning breeze as you listen to the songbirds singing. Create an delicious meal in the spacious kitchen, complete with granite counter tops, upgraded GE and LG appliances, 5-burner gas stove and an island with extra prep space and seating. Escape to your master retreat and soak in the whirlpool tub or relax by the fireplace with a good book. The master suite also includes two large walk-in closets, dual vanity sinks and a glass-enclosed shower. On the other end of the main level, are three additional bedrooms each with its own full bath, and cozy built-in desks with bookshelves – perfect for doing homework or creating a craft or sewing room. On cooler evenings, throw open the triple French doors off the family room onto the covered veranda. Beyond the veranda, you'll find the true gem of this home - a heated saltwater pool and spa. The surrounding trees are beautifully lit and underwater lighting make it perfect for nighttime swim. Or host a pool party and serve your guests poolside as they lounge in the sunlight. The gazebo makes the perfect grilling station and offers a shady spot for your guests. The lawn behind the pool includes a small picnic area, a garden bed to grow your fresh vegetables, and a gated passageway to The Laurel Street Park (also known as The Saul Alexander Park) behind the property. This park includes playgrounds, picnic areas, and two tennis courts. The lower level of the home is a finished basement and provides access to the back yard, convenient for drying off after taking a dip in the pool. This level includes a flex space that could be used as a game room or media room, a bedroom with full bath, a kitchenette, and a room that could be used as an office or library. There is abundant room for storage and the unfinished garage would make a great workshop or could be utilized to park a smaller vehicle, bikes, and more. This beautiful home, just minutes away from Azalea Park and Summerville's Main Street shops, has much to offer and is waiting to become a part of your life story where you can create new memories for years to come.
