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

Sallie was so helpful in the process of selling my house. She was professional. She was available and answered 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
We met Sallie because we were riding around one Sunday afternoon looking at homes for sale and found one of her listings. When we called, she just happened to be right down the street so she came and showed us the house. From the moment we met Sallie, she was the most honest real estate agent we had ever dealt with. She was very patient with us in our home search. She knew we were looking for something very specific and showed us a good many homes before we were able to find the right one.. Sallie is very knowledgeable and was able to point out stuff, whether good or bad, to help us in our decision making. Sallie isn’t just our realtor, we consider her our friend. I would recommend Sallie to everyone! Darla and Rodney C. ~Feb. 2018
Barb LeRoux with the Sallie Chester Team was exceptional and I feel very blessed to have been matched up with her. She was very attentive and prompt. She became more than a realtor to me. Barb became a friend that I could rely on and I knew she wouldn’t steer me wrong. She is most definitely an asset to the Exit team and I loved working with her!! I would gladly refer anyone I know to either Sallie or Barb with Exit Real Estate Consultants. Sallie started me on my journey and Barb finished that journey and helped me to purchase my first home!! Thank you for all the help! Heather M. ~January 2018
We were very happy with Brandon Diffee. He is very pleasant and knowledgeable. His pictures of the property, for marketing purposes, were awesome. He kept us informed throughout the process. Overall our experience with Brandon was great and will recommend him to anyone looking for a REALTOR. Nancy S. ~Dec. 2017
Sallie was amazing. She had my best interest in mind at all times. She knew exactly what I was looking for and helped me find it. Not being from the area, her knowledge made me feel safe and I never worried. I recommend Sallie as a great real estate agent. Melinda L. ~December 2017
In the beginning we were considering not using a REALTOR but now we are so thankful that we chose to work with Sallie! She is 100% about doing what is best for her client and making sure they are taken care of. I can't imagine where we would be in our home buying process without her. In any of our future home buying endeavors, we will most certainly be using Sallie Chester. Dixie and Charlie C. ~November 2017
Barbara LeRoux helped me purchase my home and she also helped me sell it. Barbara had initially contacted me from their website. I was very impressed with her prompt reply. Not only was she quick to respond but we went looking at houses within the next two days. I needed to find a place fast and she met me after work at whatever time I had available. Barbara did an awesome job of helping find what I wanted and didn’t waste my time showing me houses I didn’t like. I was a first time homeowner, and she took time to thoroughly explain the process to me. Barbara made this process easy, exciting and stress free. I am so thankful and I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home. Barbara is an amazing Realtor and I have told all my friends and family about her. She really knocked it out of the ballpark and if I had to do it all over again, wouldn’t change a thing. Emily M. ~November 2017
It was a long process but Barbara was very patient and was willing to help from start to finish. She didn't hesitate to show me homes that met my needs and were in the area where I wanted to live. Also, she was always ready to assist me with any paperwork during the process. Thank you, Barbara, for all the help. Manuel B. ~October 2017
Brandon Diffee made my home buying experience so much less stressful than it could have been. Brandon worked tirelessly, often at night and on the weekends, to search for the 'right' house for me and my daughter. I am very happy at my new home and will recommend Brandon and The Sallie Chester Team to anyone looking to purchase a home. Amie B. ~October 2017
Sallie and Jennifer, Thank you so much for taking time Friday to shepherd us around Harbour Watch, showing us homes of interest and most importantly sharing your insights on the current housing situation. WE appreciate your professionalism and depth of knowledge! We made progress in finding a home designer to put our vision to paper. The weekend overall was productive and fun. Thanks again for your time and efforts on our behalf. Becky and Jeff F. ~October 2017
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
