Waterfront

Karen Abrams of Keller Williams Charleston has listed 2186 Wappoo Hall Road, Charleston, South Carolina for $2.6 million.

Named the most romantic city in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure magazine, Charleston’s waterfront charms are hard to shake. At least that’s what David Szlam told T&L back in 2015.

“If you come to Charleston and experience it like us locals do, it will forever take place in your soul,” said Szlam. “Dining at Bowens Island Restaurant is especially romantic, watching the sun set over tidal creeks while enjoying some fresh steamed oysters—the list goes on and on.” Hang tight, we are googling flights to Charleston as we speak.

“My husband and I are the owners and sellers, and the ones who rehabbed this house. We have been restoring and selling homes in East Dallas for 17 years … long before ‘flipping’ became vogue,” says Jeanna. “Since, we have lived all over East Dallas, our passion is to buy and remodel classic 1950 – 60s homes to preserve the character and maintain property values through renovation and revitalization. We do top-quality renovations to attract good, responsible homeowners to the neighborhood. We are experienced contractors that do top-quality work, we go over and above on design and finish-out, we are respectful to neighbors and the people we hire, and we are committed to continue helping East Dallas to thrive!”

Tamra Torres of the Shelly Seltzer Group at Ebby Halliday is listing the property for $425,000, making it the perfect Friday Four Hundred! In fact, Torres has successfully sold over 20 properties for the McIntyres and soon will add this Old Lake Highlands beauty to her list!

And we are among the first to highlight SOBO 58’s offerings in our latest Splurge vs. Steal. (more…)
