Welcome home to 179 Riverland Drive, off scenic Wappoo Road in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Riverland Terrace on James Island. A canopy of Spanish moss-draped old oak trees gives way to a classic house with tons of curb appeal. The driveway is big enough for multiple cars or a boat. Walk through an iron gate and mature landscaping including Japanese plum trees to the main entrance. A wrap-around front porch with plenty of ceiling fans is the ideal place to lounge on traditional Southern rocking chairs.

Inside, the entry hall is flanked by an office/bedroom and a formal dining room. Beautiful hardwoods floor the entire residence. The dining room has a two-sided gas fireplace that also opens to the living room, where it is surrounded by built-in cabinets. The living room sports a bay window and enough space for an eat-in area. The adjoining kitchen also has seating around a large breakfast bar. Stainless steel Jenn-Aire appliances include a French drawer refrigerator and a 9-burner professional gas range. A screened porch off of the kitchen and living room has been converted into a year-round sun room with attractive wood plank flooring and ceiling. The first floor also has a walk-in pantry and full bathroom.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with another bay window. The spacious master bath has his and hers vanities and a striking soaking tub. The walk-in closet has built-in cabinets and shelves for optimal storage. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. All rooms feature crown molding. A large laundry room with utility sink and upper and lower cabinets is also on this level, convenient to the bedrooms.

The property has plenty of outdoor space. Off of the sun room is a porch big enough for a sitting or grilling area. An arched trellis takes you to a large, private grassy back yard. A tabby patio with brick outdoor fireplace is perfect for spending the evenings or entertaining. A hammock stand under the shade of an old oak tree is ideal for relaxing in the beautiful Charleston weather.

Riverland Terrace has a public deep water boat ramp that leads to the Intracoastal Waterway and a play park for children. It’s close to the Charleston Municipal Golf Course and walking trails. It’s also home to the Terrace Theater, James Island’s only movie house, and several shops and restaurants. This picturesque neighborhood is convenient to downtown Charleston, West Ashley and Folly Beach. 179 Riverland Drive presents a great opportunity to live in a newer house in one of Charleston’s classic neighborhoods, Riverland Terrace.
