Description

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a magnificent, 7432 SF, all-brick home on your own private island with over 1000 feet of waterfront, two dock permits, 200 ft causeway, and a detached 2 boat and 2 car garage/workshop. Conveniently located just off Hwy 391, but far enough away from traffic noise, this home faces north, which provides for breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Being on an island, there are lake views from every room. The causeway side of the home is Colonial in style, with its columns and curved brick staircase, which leads to a large covered porch with iron railings and balusters. Open the double doors to the entry hall where the wide wood tread stairs occupy the middle of the house. This design is classic: formal without being stiff and welcoming without being folksy. There is exquisite, custom millwork throughout this home: judge’s paneled wainscoting, wide crown moldings, 6” oak hardwoods, heart pine ceilings. The “man cave” space showcases wood floors re-purposed from an old family barn. Also, the wheel mechanism from the old well is used to accent the floor to ceiling stone fireplace, one of two fireplaces in the home, each with wood stove inserts. The right side of the home is the master suite with double octagonal box ceiling, huge cedar closet, large vanity with two sinks and dressing area, tiled shower, and whirlpool tub. The kitchen has an indoor gas grill, double oven plus warming drawer, 6 burner island gas cooktop, Ubatuba granite counters, and additional prep sink. The open floor plan includes kitchen, formal dining area, living room, keeping room with fireplace and built-ins as well as a piano room that is built in the style of a rotunda, with nine 6 ft arched windows. Past the “man cave” space and a few steps down from the main level is a huge sunroom with entertainment center and bookcases. Also on the main level, there is a guest bedroom and full bath with a claw foot slipper tub and pedestal sink. There are high ceilings, ceiling fans, and recessed lights throughout this home, and there are cathedral ceilings in the center of the home. Upstairs, there is a living room and two bedrooms, each with large, walk-in closets. These rooms share a bath, but each has a designated large vanity, private toilet and shower and shared tub. There is an oversized 3 car, side entry garage, which leads into a massive utility room, the perfect caterer’s prep area. The home is equipped with a central vacuum system. The grounds at 239 Hipp Island Rd are lovely with brick patios surrounding the home. There used to be a mobile home on the eastern side of the property. A concrete pad and power pole remain, making a perfect spot for an outdoor kitchen. This is a property that could easily host 100’s of people inside and outside. Lake Murray is an approximately 50,000 acre recreational lake with over 600 miles of shoreline. Not only is Lake Murray a skiing, boating and swimming paradise, it has some of the best fishing in the nation. Although it is home for a large number of species, Lake Murray and surrounding rivers are best known for four types of fish including striped bass, largemouth bass, bream and crappie. Lake Murray is also home to some of the most majestic wildlife in South Carolina, including the great blue heron and millions of migrating purple martins. Sale includes Saluda County TMS#192-00-00-011 & TMS#192-00-00-012. 239 Hipp Island Rd in Leesville, SC is located on Lake Murray, 30 miles from CAE (Columbia, SC), 65 miles from AGS (Augusta, GA), 90 miles from GSP (Greenville-Spartanburg, SC), and 112 miles from CLT (Charlotte, NC).

Client Testimonials

Moving from out of state can be stressful! Barbara LeRoux did everything she could to make our experience as stress free as possible from beginning to end. She was great about helping with anything we needed prior to our move that we couldn't do ourselves because of our location. We would highly recommend Barb to anyone who wants the best possible real estate experience! Melanie and Bill P. ~May 2018
Barbara LeRoux and Sallie Chester were absolutely the best to work with. We really could not have asked for better customer service. They were honest and really helped with our questions and never left us without an answer. Our expectations were exceeded! Lisa and Ryan M. ~May 2018
We had been looking for a house for a while when we ran across Brandon Diff ee. He was hosting an open house in Gilbert, SC and we are so grateful that we met him that day. When Brandon says he wants to help people, he truly means it. We also worked with Sallie Chester. Both Sallie and Brandon were top notch! When we’re ready to buy or sell again, we will be calling The Sallie Chester Team! Jennifer and Johnny L., Reta T. ~May 2018
As a first time home buyer not from this area, I needed a real estate agent that I could trust and rely on. Thankfully I was referred to Barbara LeRoux at EXIT Real Estate Consultants. Barbara, Sallie Chester and their team provided phenomenal service representing me throughout the process. They are very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and very professional. Barbara truly listened to what I wanted and was looking for, then went to work to match me with the perfect home. I was not just another customer but treated like family. I would recommend Barbara and Sallie to anyone because they are exceptional REALTORS, whose main focus is serving their clients. When the time comes, I plan to use the Sallie Chester Team to both sell my current home and find my next one. Thank you for a job very well done! Chris D. ~April 2018
Brandon Diffee was very attentive and easy to reach when I had questions. He made a very stressful process seem like a piece of cake. I'd recommend anyone in the Lexington area to use Brandon to buy or sell their home. Mandy H. ~April 2018
We became clients of Sallie Chester in 2010. She helped us find our first home in Lexington. Even though the home was brand new, Sallie made sure that everything was perfect. She was ready to negotiate on our behalf but they agreed to everything we wanted. Many people we talked to couldn't believe the deal we received. She also sold the house we were living in, after just 6 weeks on the market! Now we are ready to build our dream home and Sallie helped us negotiate a phenomenal price on 20 acres of land in Lexington. We have recommended Sallie and her team to numerous family members. She helped our daughter and her husband buy their first home and they also got a great deal. As well, she helped my in-laws buy their home after moving back to the Midlands from the Upstate. Sallie and her team have handled six properties for us and our family in the last eight years. We have all been very pleased. Sallie has always made us feel valued and has worked very hard for us. As soon as our home is built, we will be ready to work with Sallie Chester again to sell our current home. We can't imagine working with anyone else! Lynette and Tom S. ~March 2018
We can't say enough good things about Sallie Chester and Brandon Diffee. We weren't sure if the Carolinas were going to be a good fit for us, so we starting looking into resources and that's how we came to connect with Sallie. When we reached out to her, we'd already done about 8 months of research on areas we were interested in. We planned a short visit from Maryland for just a couple of days to see homes we were interested in. Sallie assigned Brandon to us and he planned our first day to see all 7 of the houses we wanted to see. We ended up finding one that we liked. Brandon had gotten word that this particular house just received 2 offers and the sellers were planning to make their decision by 7:30 that evening. So, we asked to go back to the office and write a contract. The sellers took our offer, and we were all set to close in 2 weeks. Brandon and Sallie made this process so easy for us. From start to finish they were by our side every step of the way. I couldn't have been blessed with a better real estate team. And since we have numerous friends looking to relocate to SC over the next several years, we'll be referring them to Sallie and Brandon as well. Thank you both so much, for everything! Pam and Tim M. ~March 2018
We have worked with Sallie Chester several times in the past and she has always been hardworking and made sure our every need was met. She has held our hands through each sell and purchase we have made with her. We would highly recommend Sallie to anyone looking for a REALTOR who is trustworthy and willing to work tirelessly to meet your needs. Rachel and Will W. ~March 2018
We had great service from two REALTORS. Sallie realized, after working with us through several visits, that our needs would best be met working with Barbara LeRoux. Sallie graciously turned us over to Barb. We had several weeks working with Barb, until she found the perfect house for us. Her patience and understanding of our needs and desires is so appreciated. Barb truly cared and we were taken care of professionally and thoroughly during the entire process.🤗 We are so looking forward to our relocation to South Carolina. Cathy and Walt G. ~March 2018
We thank Sallie so much for helping us find a place on Lake Murray! Debbie and Bob L. ~March 2018
Sallie is a wonderful person all around. She is professional and personally cares about her job. Sallie works tirelessly for her clients and I am privileged to have her as my friend. Ursula and Tom L. ~February 2018
Sallie was so helpful in the process of selling my house. She was professional and available to answer my questions at any time. She truly cares about her clients!! Sallie worked tirelessly to make sure everything was done and done right. I am so appreciative of her diligence and knowledge. I will highly recommend her to anyone I know who needs to sell or buy a house!! Louise C. ~February 2018
