Wonderful James Island home with Luxurious Upgrades, on one third of an acre, with only an 8 minute drive to Folly Beach and Downtown Charleston! You won't find a lot this big, for this price, with this location. This beautiful bungalow has fantastic curb appeal and is located in one of the most convenient neighborhoods on James Island, plus it is within walking distance to the Elementary School! When you approach the home you are greeted with a landscaped yard, solar pathway lights, and a SOUTHERN STYLE, FULL FRONT PORCH. The home was completely renovated in 2008 and the current owner has added numerous additional updates to make this an amazing house! Some of the many recent improvements include an enclosed 10 foot privacy fence around the huge backyard-perfect for children and dogs to play safely. The 12x12 deck was completely redone in 2016, and an additional 16X16 feet was added, along with railings, stairs, and painted to protect the deck. A beautiful pergola was constructed, with fragrant Jasmine weaved through the lattice to create shade. The landscaped backyard was upgraded with uplighting and various plants including agave, crepe myrtles, lemon tree, lime tree, and olive tree. Enjoy your very own fire pit in the backyard, plus for the gardeners there was a vegetable and strawberry garden added in 2020. Off the back of the house you can enjoy a large SCREENED IN PORCH with pull down privacy screens as well as weather-resistant curtains. Privacy bamboo was planted along the screen porch for an extra sense of seclusion. Upon entering this home you will notice the gleaming TOFFEE MAPLE SOLID-WOOD FLOORS, an abundance of light pouring into the home from its many windows, an enormous great room with 9' smooth ceilings, recessed lighting, a new ceiling fan, and plenty of space. The OPEN FLOOR PLAN flows from the great room to the full separate dining room and kitchen with all STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES. The kitchen has a Silestone breakfast bar overlooking the living room, along with an abundance of counter space with countertops made of Canyon Silestone. The cabinets in the kitchen are Ashland maple painted white to give that crisp modern look. There is a spacious laundry room with upgraded flooring, a dryer, and a 2018 Samsung ENERGY STAR Front-load washer. The large master suite has maple hardwood floors and 9' smooth ceilings. The walk-in-closet is enormous and was upgraded with a gorgeous chandelier.

The secondary bedrooms in this home are spacious, have ample closet space with upgraded shelving, and ceiling fans. The second full bath also has a tiled shower, custom vanity and GRANITE countertop.
