Welcome to the charming cottage at 42 Anita Dr., perfectly situated in the Magnolia neighborhood in West Ashley. When you hear location location location, they are talking about homes like 42 Anita Dr. Before we talk about its ideal location along the West Ashley bikeway, close proximity to Avondale, parks and so much more let's talk about the remarkable home. You are certain to appreciate the charming curb appeal as you pull into the white pea gravel driveway which leads all the way to the backyard. There is also additional off-street parking to the left of the driveway flanked by decorative landscaping stone. Get ready to enjoy waving to your passing neighbors as you relax on the fully covered front porch already furnished with a porch swing. True to Charleston customs, the porchceiling is painted blue. As you go through the front door you are welcomed by beautiful custom glass that allows the light to cast upon the hardwood floors in the foyer which has ample room for hanging coats, backpacks or whatever you are ready to unload so you can relax in your alluring home. At the end of the foyer, if you take a left you will find two bedrooms with brand new carpet and tons of natural light separated by a linen closet. Here you will also have easy access to the full bath that was recently renovated in 2019. If you take a right out of the foyer you will be delighted by the large living space that can be used in a multitude of ways. The current owners used the space both as a study area, utilizing the built in shelving and cabinets as well as the living room. The large space can welcome many design ideas and is defined by the large light filled windows and gas fireplace with custom surround. To the right and towards the front of the home is the main bedroom with equally impressive windows and original hardwood floors. The large main living space flows seamlessly into both the dining area and the kitchen. The dining area accommodates a large built-in cabinet with glass doors. Just off the dining area is a half bath. As we make our way into the kitchen, you will immediately notice the new quartz countertops, solid wood cabinets with tempered glass doors and deep stainless sink that were added in 2021 and 2022. Off the kitchen is the utility and laundry room which houses the gas water heater. Complete duct system and thermostat replacement with metal supply trunk line with anti microbial flex branch runs and new return was added in 2020. You can step right out onto the recently stained large back deck perfect for outdoor entertaining right from the kitchen and take on the wonder of the expansive fully fenced in yard. The yard is populated by a plethora of perennials and a diverse variety of vegetation that any botanist or horticulturalist would be fascinated by. In the back right corner of the yard is a 12x16 storage shed. Here are some of of what you will find throughout the property: daffodils, avocados, roses, lantana, blueberries, tea olive trees, mini azaleas, monkey grass, red flower lily, cabbage palm, ferns, elephant ears, jasmine, honeysuckle, cast iron, fig tree, hydrangeas, forsythias, amaryllis, variegated spider plants, English ivy, knockout roses, purple cannas, yellow cannas, red cannas, magnolia tree, Japanese privet, asian lillies, asparagus, three large pecan trees cycled to produce nuts annually, snowdrops, narcissus, Mexican petunias just to name a few. Just on the other side of the rear property line is the West Ashley bikeway that provides miles of walking and biking trails. The Magnolia neighborhood was established early in the 1900's and the oldest home was built in 1925. Most of the neighborhood was built in the early 1950's. The Sycamore post office, The Schoolhouse, Magnolia Community Garden and Park, Backyard Park, and Ackerman Park are a few of the highlights. It's less than 2 miles from downtown Charleston, and you can go north up Old Towne Road to get on the Interstate without going downtown. The neighborhood has a healthy and environmentally-friendly vibe, with a Bikeway, nearby bicycle stores, Higgins Pier, and lots of parks. Most homes have large yards, leafy roads, lots of cute cottages on large lots. Easy access to outdoor activities, medical care, close to shopping and restaurants, with options for nightlife and entertainment along St. Andrews Boulevard and in Avondale along Savannah Highway, which is less than a mile away. It's very walkable and bikeable and there is much to do and see without going far. The parks are a big draw here- see the attached map of just the City of Charleston's parks, which does not include the Old Towne Creek County Park or the Charles Towne Landing State Park, which are both less than a mile away.
