Waterfront brick home for sale in the Wespanee neighborhood of West Ashley. 18 Saint Augustine Drive combines the attractive mature landscaping and generous rooms sizes of a traditional home, with an updated kitchen and lots of storage. The house has been lovingly maintained and needs little updating. It’s hard to find this much space in such a great location. The home sits upon a ¾-acre lot with well-manicured lawn and moss-draped ancient oak trees, that backs up to the gorgeous marshes of Old Towne Creek.
Inside, a large entry foyer is flanked by a sunken formal living room to the right and a formal dining room to the left, with a concealed China storage cabinet built into the wall. Expansive picture windows line both rooms. To the back of the house is another spacious living room with wet bar, beamed ceiling, and brick gas fireplace.
The nicely-updated kitchen connects the living room to the formal dining room. Stainless steel appliances include a French door refrigerator, 5-burner gas stove, 2 wall ovens, and even an indoor grill. A stainless steel backsplash and range hood are stand-out décor choices. A large center island joins a coffee/wine bar. Seating is available at the breakfast bar or an eat-in area in a bay of windows overlooking the beautiful backyard.
The right wing of the home has 2 large bedrooms that share a vintage Jack and Jill bath. All bedrooms have walk-in closets, an unexpected bonus in a home this age. The master bedroom has hardwood floors and plenty of room for a king-sized bed. It’s bath has dual sinks, a walk-in closet, and separate commode and shower area with a jetted tub. The master suite overlooks the backyard. Sliding glass doors lead to a courtyard garden between the wings of the home, filled with an ancient live oak.
The private, waterfront backyard has a lush lawn and mature landscaping featuring Southern staples such as palmettos, azaleas, crepe myrtles, and hydrangeas. If you are lucky, you’ll see picturesque egrets amongst the marsh grass. A storage shed holds all your outdoor necessities.
Back inside the left wing of the home, behind the kitchen, is a room that would be perfect for crafts or a home office. A fourth bedroom has an en-suite bath and another walk-in closet. A vintage half bath off the foyer serves the living area. The laundry room has a second fridge and a utility sink. It leads to the converted garage bonus/game room with yet another half bath. With a wet bar and separate outside entrance, it makes the perfect man cave, kids’/teens’ playroom, or home gym. And don’t worry about missing garage space – the circular driveway provides plenty of off-street parking.
Wespanee is located in the heart of West Ashley, near the Northbridge, Avondale and Old Towne neighborhoods. Shopping and dining are close by. Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site is less than a mile away. This hidden gem of a neighborhood beckons you home.
