Welcome to 2301 South Bay Street. This 4.89-acre estate is situated on the banks of Winyah Bay (ICW) and is located within the city limits of Historic Georgetown, SC. Georgetown is roughly one hour south of Myrtle Beach and one hour north of Charleston, so commuting to or visiting either will be a breeze. This well-built home was constructed in 1950 and still stands strong at the entrance to South Bay Street. As the sentinel of and model to which all the other beautiful waterfront homes on this street aspire to compare. Immediate access to Winyah Bay and the Intra-Coastal Waterway means that you, your family and friends will not only enjoy breath taking views every day but also the opportunity to explore all of the rivers, creeks, inlets and pristine estuaries that make this area so unique. Fresh water fishing, salt water fishing, crabbing, shrimping, collecting your own oysters and clams, pleasure cruising, skiing and shell hunting are just a few of the activities these waters offer. Also, the Atlantic Ocean waits just beyond the Winyah Bay jetties. Simply put, it would take more than a lifetime to see all of the waterways that surround this property. The home offers roughly 4900 square feet under roof, 5 bedrooms with an owner's suite on the first floor, 4 full baths, an oversized formal living room with fireplace, a formal dining room adjacent to the large kitchen and dinette area, a first-floor laundry area with its own full bath, a 14' X 44' cypress paneled sunroom which overlooks the sweeping backyard, moss draped oak trees, marsh, dock and Winyah Bay. There is a study as well as a library in the upstairs central hall. Ample amounts of climate-controlled storage are available which include a walk into accessible attic space and 15 closets, 3 that are cypress lined. Hardwood flooring exist throughout the house with the exception of tile flooring in the kitchen, baths and laundry area. A spacious, terrazzo tile floored sunroom with a new flat roof, situated just off of the kitchen, offers a full wet bar and serves as another ideal space for entertaining. There is even more storage available above the side loading 2 car garage. A 500' fixed walkway and dock, with covered area is an amazing spot to entertain or launch your boat. From the dock, you will experience natural wonders daily mixed with views of recreational boats and shrimp boats traveling to and from Georgetown. The home has just received a new architectural roof complete with new gutters and down spouts. A transferrable warrantee is included. A new sewer line has been installed. In the kitchen, a new Jenn-Air solid surface stove was installed in 2015 and the dishwasher was replaced in 2017. Two new heat pumps that service the upstairs and downstairs were installed in 2016. All windows were replaced in 2010. The Georgetown County School District has granted an easement across their portion of marsh that would allow for the construction of another dock closer to the house in the event the property was subdivided and recorded. The owner has a dock permit in hand that would need to be renewed. The owner also has provided a new survey, elevation certificate and a document regarding the National Flood Insurance Program Property Loss History. This document explains that no losses have taken place or are on file with them. This has also been provided to show potential buyers that the annual cost of flood insurance was greatly reduced as a result. Square footage is approximate and not guaranteed. The buyer is responsible for verification.
