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

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
