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 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
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
