Harbour Watch on Lake Murray is a gated community where every non-waterfront homeowner has a deeded boat slip, and waterfront lots have private or shared docks. Harbour Watch has one full-time grounds keeper and one who is a part-time employee. Amenities include a fitness center, pool, restrooms, boat ramp, fishing pier, marina, tennis courts, putting and chipping green, picnic shelter, playground, golf cart paths and parking, nature trails, and large clubhouse equipped with a caterer’s kitchen. A variety of activities, including Bunco, Canasta, gardening, stitching and book clubs, pot luck dinners, parades, aerobics, Pilates, and more, are always happening at Harbour Watch. Within the first week or so of ownership, new homeowners are greeted by a “Welcome to Harbour Watch” committee member. Don’t be surprised when neighbors show up with a loaf of homemade bread or a plate of cookies. Harbour Watch is that sort of neighborhood where pride of ownership is evident and southern hospitality abounds. Lake Murray is an almost 50,000 acre recreational lake with approximately 600 miles of shoreline where fishermen (and women) fish year round for large-mouth bass, striped bass, crappie and catfish. Popular water sports include skiing, wake boarding, paddle boarding and hopping into a towable and being pulled along the top of the water. All of this is a way of life at Harbour Watch, just 15 miles west of Lexington, SC; 25 miles to the capital city of Columbia, SC; 40 miles to Aiken, SC; and 25 miles to the Newberry Opera House and fine dining in Newberry, SC. It’s less than 25 miles from Columbia Metropolitan Airport. Located in the midlands of South Carolina, one can enjoy beautiful Lake Murray and still be 2.5 hours from either the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina or the white sand beaches of South Carolina. Harbour Watch is in Lexington School District Three, with students attending Batesburg-Leesville Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Enter 161 Harbour Watch Blvd along the concrete paved walk. To the left of the foyer are French doors which lead into the formal dining room with chair rail. The family room is inviting with its warm colored walls, box ceiling and ventless gas log fireplace and recessed mantle. Off the family room is a large, freshly painted deck which overlooks the professionally landscaped yard. There are hardwood floors in the main living areas and crown molding throughout. The kitchen is light and bright with its white wood cabinets, brand new granite counters, new, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and tile floor. Large windows in the breakfast room overlook the deck and back yard, allowing for natural light. This lovely all-brick home has a highly desirable split floor plan. The large master suite with new, plush carpet has a walk-in closet, private bath with two sinks, water closet, garden tub, large shower with lifetime guaranteed bath fitter. The master suite is on the left side of the house. To the right of the living area are two large bedrooms which share a bath with new tile floor. This bath has a frosted transom window over the tub/shower to allow light into the bathroom. The entire upstairs consists of a living area, full bath with new tile floor, sleeping area, open spaces, alcoves and numerous closets. This would make a terrific teen or in-law suite. It is on a separate HVAC and has a door at the base of the stairs which makes it a completely stand-alone area, but it is also totally accessible to the main living area. The home has vinyl tilt-in windows. New 14 and 15 seer York HVAC units have 6 intakes throughout the home, allowing the homeowner to close all doors and maintain a consistent temperature. The garage doors are insulated and the summer utility bills average about $175/month. The manicured lawn has mature landscaping with 4 zone sprinkler system front and back and a French drain system complete with 8” pipe and river rock. The home also has gutters with gutter guards. The purchase of 161 Harbour Watch Blvd INCLUDES boat slip B21 at the community marina, which is a short walk from the house. Home Warranty included and HOA fees paid thru 2017. Come to Harbour Watch, where you can experience lake living at its finest!

Client Testimonials

We are so very thankful to our Lord and to Sallie for making the purchase of our home a reality. We really appreciated her diligence and fortitude at the closing! Since we were first time new home buyers, we were not prepared for the hassle that would ensue as we moved toward the closing. Problems with workmanship and conflicts with the builder caused us to reconsider whether we should proceed with the purchase. Sallie was always available for consulting and continued to reassure us that she would be with us every step of the way. At the first walk-through she was very insistent that the builder rectify several obvious issues. Then we realized that there were discrepancies in the final amount we would have to pay. Sallie stood up to the builder and basically demanded all that they had promised to cover. We would highly recommended Sallie should the opportunity present itself. Dee and Jim G. ~July 2017
Sallie really knows real estate. She was with us through listing our house to closing and during all the bumps in the road. She really cares for her clients and goes the extra mile for them.  Renee and Ray T. ~July 2017
Sallie Chester and her team are the ultimate professionals! Everything - from the advice she gave us before we listed our lake condo - to the quality photos she had taken - to the flyers created for prospective buyers - were all top quality! Sallie understood what we wanted and worked hard to get us the best price in a reasonable amount of time. Her knowledge and expertise helped us throughout the process. We highly recommend Sallie Chester and her team ! Colette and Jim F. ~July 2017
Sallie Chester was an exceptional REALTOR. With her assistance and knowledge of the area, I was able to find my dream home here in Lexington. Jeff G. ~May 2017
Sallie Chester has been a friend of our family for some time, taking care of our sales and purchases after the death of my father in law in 2012. So when it came time to sell my daughters' house when my she got married, Sallie was the only person we considered as our agent. She walked us through the process of staging the house and putting it on the market. We had multiple offers the first day, driving the price up, and we accepted a bid of $8000 over list price. Sallie also negotiated a fantastic deal on the purchase of their next home. We could not be more pleased! Tillman (Bud) C. ~May 2017
Sallie was wonderful to work with. She was very detailed and gave great advice of what I could do to help sell my property. Sallie was very prompt in answering any questions with regard to the selling process. Actually, my wife has already referred one of her friends to Sallie. In the future, I would certainly work with Sallie again and refer anyone I know needing real estate services. Turner F. ~May 2017
We purchased our Lake Murray home on May 11, 2017 and had the pleasure of working with Sallie. She is a true professional, very knowledgeable and great to work with. She made us feel comfortable from the first day and was there every step of the way. She went above and beyond for us and kept us updated on everything. We like to think somewhere along this ride we became friends! All we can say is that if you are looking for your dream home, you can't go wrong with Sallie on your side! Angie and Scott W. ~May 2017
Sallie was wonderful to work with and always made sure we were satisfied. She sold our old house in two days and was very patient with us as we searched for a new home. We couldn't find anything that we loved, so we decided to build instead and Sallie helped us negotiate a great deal with the builder. Sallie was even great with our newborn holding her while we signed papers during our closing. Anyone looking for a REALTOR that goes above and beyond for her clients shouldn't look any further than Sallie! Jennifer and Justin P. ~May 2017
Sallie was great during the whole process. With this being our first home purchase, I was really nervous about everything. She made life easy. We love the house and could've have picked a better one. Sallie Chester is an awesome REALTOR. Hailey and Joshua C. ~April 2017
I thought Sallie was very professional, super friendly, and very informative. I am very glad that we had Sallie as our realtor to purchase our property. Shane M. ~April 2017
Sallie was extremely professional and easy to work with during our land purchasing process. She proved to be a great communicator, which put us at ease and reduced our stress level. In our experience in buying/selling property, Sallie was among the best and we would definitely use her again in the future. Carrie M. ~April 2017
Thank you for everything you did for us and your unwavering professionalism. God bless. Lisa and John B. ~March 2017
