This all-brick, maintenance-free home at 161 Harbour Watch Blvd is in the gated community of Harbour Watch on Lake Murray, and it comes with deeded boat slip, B-23, at the community marina. The property owners’ association fee is only $975/year with boat owners’ association fee being an additional $320/year. That’s the equivalent of about two months’ wet storage at any of the local marinas. The sellers of 161 Harbour Watch Blvd are willing to cover 2018 association fees with an acceptable offer. Additionally, the residents of Harbour Watch just purchased 16 acres of land that the developer had originally planned as Phase 5B, the final lots on which to be built. This purchase ensures that the residents maintain control of the association and that phase is maintained as green space. The sellers have paid a $289 special assessment. The association projects that this land acquisition will result in special assessments of approximately $260/year for the next 4-5 years. The association fees at Harbour Watch cover a multitude of amenities. Harbour Watch has grounds keepers that beautifully maintain all common areas including the fitness center, pool, restrooms, large clubhouse equipped with a caterer’s kitchen, the boat ramp, fishing pier, marina, tennis courts, putting and chipping green, playground, nature trails throughout the neighborhood. This is a golf cart community where pride of ownership is evident and southern hospitality abounds. Residents enjoy a variety of activities including bunco, canasta, gardening, stitching and book clubs, pot luck dinners, parades, aerobics, pilates, a monthly community night out, gentlemen’s breakfast and more. Within the first week or so of ownership, new homeowners are greeted by a “Welcome to Harbour Watch” committee member. Harbour Watch is truly a one-of-a-kind neighborhood that’s alive with new construction and new residents. Students attend Batesburg-Leesville Elementary, Middle and High Schools. 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. Harbour Watch marina is a short boat ride across from Timberlake Country Club, the only golf course located ON Lake Murray. It is open to public play. 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. 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. There are hardwood floors in the main living areas and crown molding throughout. The kitchen is light and bright with its white wood cabinets, new tile flooring, new granite counters and white subway tile backsplash, and new, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a 5 burner smooth surface range and convection oven with warming drawer and Samsung counter depth door in door refrigerator. Large windows in the breakfast room overlook the deck and back yard and allow for natural light to brighten the space. A new storm door with retractable glass leads to the large deck on the back of the house. The home has a highly desirable split floor plan. The large master suite with new, plush carpet has a walk-in closet, private bath with new granite vanity, two new sinks with new faucets, separate toilet room or water closet, garden tub, and 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 and new granite vanity, sink and faucet. 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. With minimal effort, the upstairs could be transformed into a large garage apartment or 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. 161 Harbour Watch Blvd has vinyl tilt-in windows. It has a 14 SEER 3 ton York HVAC and a 15 SEER 2.5 ton York HVAC installed in August, 2016. There are 6 intakes throughout the home which allow the homeowner to close all doors and maintain a consistent temperature throughout the house. The garage doors are insulated and the summer SCE&G utility bills average about $175/month. This lovely all-brick home has a manicured lawn and mature landscaping with 4 zone sprinkler system front and back and a French drain system complete with 8” pipe and river rock. This elaborate system, along with gutters with gutter guards routed to the drain system, keeps the lawn dry when so many others are soggy. Come to Harbour Watch, where you can experience lake living at its finest!

Client Testimonials

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. 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
