Description from owner

Gorgeous newer home (completed and furnished in June 2009) located at 193 Governors Drive with over 2,700 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths, and 8’ x 29’ lighted private swimming pool located in the coveted Vanderhorst Plantation (behind the second gate.) Please know the pool can be heated.

The home is an architecturally accurate Charleston style home with French Quarter influences boasting a working gas lantern mounted above a hand made wrought iron railing, vestibule entry way, multiple French doors leading to a covered lanai, and multiple outdoor porches. The architectural design offers an elevated 9 foot perimeter wall to create a very private elevated courtyard-style sundeck and pool area.

This home sits on a wooded lot with a screened porch facing the natural wooded area to enjoy an early morning breakfast or evening dinner outdoors but still under a roof. This stunning home has two separate master suites and two living rooms (one on each level) to make a perfect vacation to suit multi-family needs.

There are 5 bedrooms in total. The two master suites have Queen-size beds, the 3rd bedroom also has a Queen-size bed and the 4th & 5th bedrooms have two single twin beds in each bedroom. There are also 2 full-size couches for overflow sleeping. It can sleep 12 very comfortably if the couches are used. There are 4 full baths and a powder room off the foyer area. The two showers in the two master suites have multiple shower heads for a spa-like experience and one has a fashionable iron claw bath-tub for relaxing bubble baths. We have two Rennai instant hot water heaters so there is always hot water which is a must have for families vacationing together. The house has 2 living rooms so you can send the kids upstairs to watch TV or a DVD movie while you watch something different downstairs. There is an outdoor table in the screened room that seats 6, a granite bar in the kitchen that sits 2 and a dining table inside that also sits 6. This does not even account for the patio set poolside that sits another 5. There is a commercial gas grill outside for your cook-outs. The kitchen is gourmet with a Subzero refrigerator and a Wolf gas range/oven.

Teresa (July 24, 2015)---

Everyone over at sweetgrass is the definition of southern charm.Our family can't wait to come back next year and stay in the same house 193 governors drive. Very convenient, rooms spacious. Beautiful silence.

Edward (March 31, 2015)---

AMAZING! Everyone there was incredible from the start and to the finish of my stay. Whether it was preparing the house for my arrival at the last minute, showing me the house, speaking to the owners and helping us have a dog in the house while we studied for the bar exam etc. Further, the members of the team were extremely considerate of my situation, i.e. studying for the South Carolina bar exam and respected our privacy/need for peace and quiet. At the same time they were on top of any issues which arose (almost none). When the gas ran out for the stove on a Saturday, they had someone come out within an hour to fix the issue. All I can say is that the house was beautiful and was perfect for my needs. Equally important was the fact that the team at Sweetgrass went above and beyond to take care of everything during my stay. I feel lucky that I found such a great management group and I would gladly do business with you again.
