SOLD! Natural Surroundings and Spacious Living in Mill Creek: 138 Planters Row

Beautiful wooded views surround this corner lot 4 bedroom home, and your wooded views will not change, because the surrounding area is a nature preserve and, therefore, protected.  4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with more than 1700 square feet of living space and beautiful outdoor areas to enjoy, in Mill Creek, this home is located right in the hub of Bluffton growth and, therefore, closest to the newest schools and shopping.


The beautiful open living/dining/kitchen area invites you in, with lovely wood floors and a literal wall of windows and French doors that maximize the beautiful views.  A brick fireplace becomes a striking counterpoint to those windows, creating a cozy center for a room that is made for living.

But the living area nearly doubles in size when you open the French doors and take advantage of the year-round room.  Glassed and finished, with nothing to block the views of the nature behind it, this room could be anything you wanted to be: an office, a casual living area, or a more formal dining room. The possibilities are endless, and the extra square footage is quite attractive for anyone who wants to entertain or simply have more room to live.

The kitchen area is quite large, with beautiful cabinet finishes, updated tile backsplash, and wood floors throughout. With the laundry conveniently located just off the kitchen and a beautiful eat-in nook, the space feels inviting and spacious without being overwhelming. 

 The eat-in nook is quite special, with a bay window and built-in benches that provide both seating and storage, and allows a dedicated dining area that feels separate and perfect for family meals and game nights.

The first floor master bedroom is large, as is the master bathroom, and having bedroom separation can be very desirable for those with children or family members living with them, or especially for those who entertain overnight guests frequently. The privacy allows the master to become a retreat, often what anyone needs at the end of a long day.

The other three bedrooms are quite roomy, and offer flexible space. One is currently being used as a media room/man cave, but could easily be transformed into an office space or hobby room. The others offer plenty of room--as you can see, the room with the angled walls can fit a full sized bed AND a twin bed with plenty of room to spare. 



 One of the unsung benefits of this beautiful home is the expansive outdoor area. The side entry garage and circular driveway are so helpful for guest parking or homeowner parking, as well as extra area for play.  The backyard and the side yard offer so much room to roam, for two or four legged kids, and provides an incredible amount of curb appeal.

Mill Creek offers incredible amenities to homeowners, including a lazy river resort-style pool, fitness center, and clubhouse, and is centrally located near the brand new River Ridge Academy and the soon-to-open May River High School.  Close to shopping and entertainment, Mill Creek is close to Savannah, Beaufort, and Bluffton.

You can't go wrong with this beautiful home. Call Kristy at (843) 298-3808 for more details or to set up a showing.

SOLD! Spacious and Flexible, Upgrades Galore: 50 White Oaks

Combine a stunningly large lot size, incredible square footage, and a difficult-to-beat golf course view in desirable Rose Hill and a price tag under $300,000 and you have a property that will NOT stay on the market long! 50 White Oaks provides just that, as well as a handful of impressive upgrades that makes this a dream home for the right buyer.

Canopied by mature trees and sitting right on the golf course, this property offers both privacy and plenty of room for entertaining family and friends, with a split bedroom floor plan that maximizes the square footage and a year-round porch and Savannah brick patio that expands your living space to embrace the beauty of the view.

With soaring vaulted ceilings, a beautiful exposed brick facade, and wooden beam detailing, along with wood floors throughout, the living area feels both spacious and cozy, with a beautiful fireplace and a wall of windows that beckons to the outdoors.

A formal dining room off of the living room provides multiple options, either for entertaining and formal meals or as a space for an office, playroom, or hobby room.  

The upgraded eat-in spacious galley-style kitchen offers plenty of storage, with pull-out shelving in the cabinets, and granite countertops. The eat-in nook faces a beautiful backyard, with windows to let in plenty of natural light.    

I love a home with a separate laundry room, especially one with plenty of room for storage. This laundry room has a utility sink, which makes it even more versatile for projects and routine maintenance.  

The master bedroom, spacious in its own right and with a beautiful skylight to bring in plenty of Lowcountry light, also opens to a year-round porch, complete with wooded floors and walls of windows. Even on the coolest South Carolina nights or in afternoon thunderstorms, this beautiful porch makes it possible to enjoy the golf course views all year. 

A split bedroom plan, like the one this home offers, provides plenty of room for guests or family members while maintaining privacy.  These bedrooms are especially spacious, with gorgeous views of the golf course and a shared bathroom that offers a split between the toilet and shower and sink.  That thoughtful configuration makes sharing a bathroom even easier for guests and family members.

While the beauty of the home stand on its own, the stunning views from the backyard cannot be matched.  A Savannah brick patio offers an incredible view of the golf course and a wonderful, expansive entertaining space.  Grill with friends, enjoy the breezes with a great book, or watch the activity on the golf course--whatever you choose to do, this beautifully landscaped backyard area will make it even better.

Don't let this stunning Rose Hill home pass you by! You can give Kristy a call at (843) 298-3808 or email her at for more information or to set up a showing.
