226 COUNTRY CLUB LN Charleston, SC 29412-1107856
JAMES ISLAND HOME FOR SALE
Take this opportunity to see this lovely James Island home for sale. A Palm Springs style architectural gem buried in the heart of Country Club One. One of the first residential designs from the mid-century design movement of Charleston in the late 1950's, architect Jimmy Liollio. 226 Country Club Lane is a masterpiece of his early work. As with so many designs of the mid-century era, the front exterior of this brick ranch is sleek and unassuming, however once you enter the front door, flanked by custom designed cubed entry pieces and a one of a kind square door knob, you realize that this is no ordinary home! The entire back of the home opens out with glass doors onto the beautifully landscaped grounds, pool and deck are. Every room on the pool side of the home is open to the enormous private yard. The entire property is surrounded by a tall mature privacy hedge and fence which encloses one of the largest pieces of property in Country Club One. There is a front and a back entrance to the property it is so large! It is just across the street from the golf course and one house down from the tennis courts. The other side of the home is open with glass doors as well and looks out at an exquisite walled garden. The living areas in the home have soaring vaulted ceilings with unusual angles in the beams, again hallmarks of the mid-century style of architecture. There is a family room, an enormous formal living room, and formal dining room, eat-in kitchen with bar area, laundry room, small office and full bath all of which are in the "living area" section of the house. Separated by the foyer area is the "bedroom area" section of the home which has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. This again was typical of the mid-century philosophy of thought; to divide the real living areas from the sleeping quarters. It is a great concept for entertaining! Built in bookcases, shelving, original tile, original parquet floors, and many custom original features can be found throughout the house. The home has only had three owners and the current residents (one of whom is a designer) have kept many of the original touches in the home due to their historic and design significance. The home is perfect for entertaining and for families. This is a must see, especially for those who love mid-century design. THIS JAMES ISLAND LOCATION HAS MUCH TO OFFER.
