Agent Remarks

This is truly a one of a kind property, a large peninsula-shaped lot situated on top of a natural high bluff surrounded by nearly 500 feet of waterfront. With moss-draped centuries-old oak trees that run along the meandering Lake Francis property line, this lovely home sits on a peaceful 3/4 acre lot on THE bluff after which Lawton Bluff is named. Enjoy fishing, crabbing, and nature watching right off the bank in your backyard. The home is located on highly desirable James Island, just minutes from the beach and historic downtown Charleston. Because the home is built on a sloped bluff, one of the unique features is ground floor access through the front door to one-floor living with the master bedroom on the same level as the kitchen and living areas. There is a large recreation/play roo m on the basement/garage level on one side of the house. A brand new HVAC system was installed in June 2013.
