Sleepy oak-lined avenues, salty coastal breezes, statuesque historic homes, abundant fresh seafood, white picket fences, bicycles with baskets, screened porches, tire swings, and time that ticks by just a hair slower than the rest of the world. Those lucky enough to know McClellanville simply as "The Village" have learned of the quaint elegance of Lowcountry living. Set at the center of all of this is a home known as "The Village Retreat". Built in 2007, this luxurious 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home rests on Jeremy Creek just beyond its famous shrimp boat fleet. This home currently serves as a vacation retreat, but can also become your own luxury escape. The home is built on a beautiful lot shaded by several ancient live oaks draped in Spanish moss with a scenicmarsh view and over 100 feet of water frontage. The dock is shared with one neighbor and includes a covered pierhead and floater. This beautiful home is clad in Hardiplank lap siding with a metal roof and a full-width front porch. It is elevated above the flood code with ample parking underneath that could also be enclosed for additional storage. You enter the home into a stunning open living room with a gas fireplace which flows into the kitchen and continues into a breakfast nook with magnificent waterfront views. The first floor features 10' ceilings, tongue and groove walls and ceiling and gorgeous Australian cypress flooring throughout. Off of the living room is a formal dining room complete with wine cooler and wet bar. The kitchen has a large central island and features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops with adjacent pantry, laundry room and convenient half bath. The breakfast nook is large enough for a six-person table. Beyond the nook lies your outdoor oasis in the form of a 30'-long screened porch complete with gas grill, ceiling fan, and great Lowcountry breezes. The porch also has a private entrance onto the main-floor master bedroom which enjoys a cedar-lined walk-in closet and bathroom with standing shower, claw-foot tub beneath a beautiful chandelier, and double vanities. Upstairs you will find 3 additional bedrooms. One enjoys a full bath while the others share a Jack and Jill. This floor is rounded out with two nice sitting areas and a waterfront balcony offering expansive views of Jeremy Creek.
The quaint fishing village of McClellanville offers a bounty of activities with the Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge and Francis Marion National Forest at your doorstep. This home is a block from the scenic shrimp boat docks and two seafood markets, three blocks from the downtown shops and restaurants, and less than a mile to the boat landing, parks, and more! From the dock you may enjoy fishing, crabbing, watching shorebirds and dolphins feed and sunsets across the creek. Hop in your boat and enjoy a peaceful cruise down Jeremy Creek which flows into the Intracoastal Waterway before providing access to the tranquil beaches and world-class fishing grounds of the Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge. McClellanville is just an hour from Charleston and Myrtle Beach, but feels like it's worlds away from both, and is considered by those who have discovered its beauty to be the jewel of the Lowcountry. Home can continue to be managed as a vacation rental with uninterrupted rentals if the buyers wish.
