SOLD! Bright Open Floor Plan in Growing Area: 6 Running Oak Drive

Situated in the growing area of New Riverside, where Bluffton is exploding and new construction is thriving, this beautiful little home offers an incredible price per square foot for a standalone home with a two car garage.  With a beautiful wooded lot and plenty of grassy areas to play or garden or entertain, 6 Running Oak Drive offers curb appeal, an open floor plan, and upgrades that makes this home something truly special. 

As one of the anchor homes of the neighborhood, this property features a much larger lot than many of the new construction options, and is a uniquely spacious one-level option. You'll notice a charming front yard, along with a side and backyard area bordered by natural woodland, that provides lovely curb appeal. 

This home makes quite a first impression, as you walk into a large open floor plan living space, with upgraded tile throughout, soaring vaulted ceilings, and a beautiful wood-burning fireplace.  The room is bordered by four windows and sliding doors, most of which capitalize on a stunning and private wooded view. 

The large kitchen opens to the living area through a breakfast bar, which offers additional casual dining options, and features tall cabinets and ample counter space. A large pantry provides plenty of additional storage. 

All three spacious bedrooms of the home are located at the front of the home, off of a central hallway. This floor plan style is somewhat unique in this neighborhood--many of the one-level homes feature a split floor plan with the living area as the hub of the house. This floor plan separates the living areas from the bedrooms, which can keep the noise and bustle of daily life away from the retreat of the bedrooms.

The large master bedroom has two large windows, along with a master bath that features tall double sinks, a garden tub and separate shower, a large linen closet, and a walk-in master closet.  The glass block window in the master bath maintains privacy while allowing plenty of natural light into the bathroom. 

With very few properties available in this price range, and definitely not with these amenities, this home will not last! Make an appointment for a private tour before it's gone!

SOLD! Great Location and Flexible Floor Plan: 697 Farm Lake

Isn't technology amazing? I love that we can create a virtual tour of a property so that potential homeowners can have a clearer sense of how the property feels in person.  (Nothing beats a good old fashioned private tour, though! Some houses just sing to their future owners in a way that pictures and videos can never convey through a screen.)

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, located in the popular Bluffton neighborhood of The Farm, is centrally located and close to shopping, entertainment, parks, and schools.  This home sits on a large wooded lot and features a charming front porch and soaring vaulted ceilings throughout the living area and master bedroom.  When you walk into the bright living and dining area, you'll notice the beautiful high ceilings, hardwood floors, and impressive fireplace and mantle.  The kitchen, open to the living/dining area, offers plenty of room for an island and an attached laundry area for convenience.

The master bedroom is quite large, with a size made even more impressive by the vaulted ceiling.  The master bathroom offers two sinks for convenience and plenty of storage. The other two bedrooms are spacious and perfect for family or visiting guests. 

The lot offers a dream to an amateur gardener, with a shed in back to hold tools and plenty of beds that could hold native plants or seasonal beauty.  The Farm offers plenty of amenities, including a community pool and clubhouse and a playground. 

Give Kristy Gonzalez a call to set up a tour of this property. At this price point in this neighborhood, it will not be on the market long!

SOLD! Beautiful Upgrades and Incredible Charm: 20 Wentworth

The combination of beautiful upgrades, a flexible floor plan, amazing central location, and an absolutely stunning backyard makes this Bluffton home a must see.  Located in the community of Woodbridge, a quiet neighborhood off of Buckwalter Parkway, this home is close to shopping, entertainment, and a short drive to both 278 and 180, making it an easy drive to Beaufort, Savannah, or HHI.  The neighborhood offers amenities, including a community pool, clubhouse, and park, and the homes are zoned for the brand new River Ridge Academy.

You'll love the beautiful updates throughout this home, but the first floor is truly stunning. From beautiful wood floors to the comfortable open floor plan to the beautifully updated kitchen, it's hard to find a home in this price range with these kinds of upgrades.

With an open floor plan like this, living and entertaining become so much easier. Family members and friends can easily move from one area to the next, and the open flow also allows plenty of natural light throughout the space.

This comfortable flow extends both from the kitchen into the dining room, with an extra large entrance into the spacious and updated kitchen and to the stairway, but also from the dining area to the screened porch.  The spacious screened porch opens onto the stunning backyard, surrounded by a privacy fence and beautifully landscaped.  

If we had to declare a star of this lower level, it would certainly be the beautifully updated kitchen.  Finished with custom trim on the cabinets, stainless steel cabinets, lovely and warm wood floors, and granite countertops, this kitchen will certainly become the heart of this home. Ample counter space offers plenty of prep space for the cook in your life, and the counter also offers another casual dining area.  A pantry for storage and conveniently placed laundry makes the kitchen a beautiful hub for your daily life.

Another place where you will find the beautiful upgrades unusual for a home in this price range is in the master bedroom.  Beautiful views from the bright windows create a beautiful retreat, and the spa-like master bathroom solidifies that feeling. 

Beautiful granite countertops, upgraded fixtures, and plenty of storage make this both beautiful and functional for every day life, and the upgraded closet and tiled shower are hard to find in this price range. 

Upstairs, three beautifully sized bedrooms and an equally impressive upgraded bath await, along with a bonus/media room that is wired for surround sound. The split floor plan, with master on the ground floor and additional bedrooms upstairs, offers privacy for family or guests.

One of the true gems of this property is the backyard. Surrounded by a beautiful privacy fence, the space has been divided into entertaining and play areas without sacrificing beautiful landscaping.  The huge backyard has been divided into a paver patio, perfect for entertaining, a sandbox/play area that could easily be converted back to lawn or could remain a great area for two or four legged friends, a wide expanse of lawn area, and expansive beds around the perimeter of the fence that would be great for someone with a green thumb but are low maintenance as is.  The wooded view behind makes a lovely backdrop for this fantastic entertaining, living, and playing area. 

This home will not last! Contact Kristy Gonzalez to set up an appointment or join us for a realtor tour on Thursday, February 4th!
