LUXURY DEEP WATER EQUESTRIAN ESTATE WITH 2 RESIDENCES
Johns Island, Charleston County, South Carolina
This exquisite property boasts 2 homes, the main residence being a 5,192 square foot 4 bedroom and 4.5 bath, and the guest home being a 2403 square foot 3 bed and 2.5 bath. On over 10 acres of true deep water, this property offers many unique opportunities. The owner is willing to entertain offers to subdivide.
Enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the rare remaining quintessential Southern Estates on the true deep water of the Bohicket River. 10.7 acres of slightly southwestern exposure offer sunsets and breezes that make it clear why the celebrated artist Jim Booth once chose to call this inspiringly beautiful Lowcountry paradise his home. Rows of ancient grand Live Oaks adorn the property, their limbs reaching out, dipping towards the land and rising back up as if they are mimicking the wingspans of the vast variety of wild birds that also call this land home. Bald Eagles, Herons, Egrets, Hawks, Roseate Spoonbills, migrating ducks and more frequent the natural resources this estate provides. The protected land just across the Bohicket River sustains the wildlife as well as your impeccable views and privacy. You can sit on the dock and listen to the Redfish tail through the marsh grasses, slapping the glassy topwater as they hunt their prey, or possibly be so lucky to greet one of the many dolphins that swim by, beckoning you will their smiles and the friendly encounters they are so known for in our local waters. And at a mere 6 minute ride to the Bohicket Marina and open water, dropping your boat off of the lift or untying from your floater is a quick trip at any tide.
The front half of the property is pasture for your equine friends with a 2 stall shed row barn, chicken coop, and tractor shed. Grand Oaks provide shade for your four legged friends who are safely enclosed in 3 board wooden fencing. There is ample high, dry land to add to your barn or put a ring in. This horse friendly amenity not only offers the very rare opportunity to keep horses on deep water, but also allows for agricultural status!
On the river side, you will enjoy a 2023 gunite infinity pool surrounded by a travertine deck. The pool is heated and cooled, has an attached spa, and has bar stools in the pool! The short 397 foot dock features a 10,000LB boat lift, electric and city water at the dock, new pilings and a new walkway. Pick your fancy for an afternoon cocktail as the sun sets across this quiet section of the Bohicket River.
While you could spend all of your time enjoying the newly built infinity pool, the deepwater dock and the equestrian amenities, gazing at the sunsets or watching the Spanish moss gently undulate in the wind, the modern conveniences of two exquisite homes beckon you indoors.
At a stunning 5,192 square feet, the main home offers a large and open floor plan with views of the pool overlooking the banks of the river. There is not a thought left behind as you enter through the grand oversized wooden front door. You are greeted by natural light and large window river views from your formal living and dining area, which has French doors opening to the pool and patio. The kitchen boasts a large center island featuring a Mont Blanc black marble countertop with a leather finish and appliances for a chef’s dream kitchen. These include a Dacor Oven, Dacor Microwave, Sub Zero Refrigerator, Asco Dishwasher, Induction Electric Viking Stove Top, and a GE Trash Compactor. The nook for your wet bar area includes a wine fridge, beer fridge, and an ice maker. The living area is open to the kitchen for entertaining and features walls of windows, a built in aquarium and an entertainment center. This room also opens through French doors to the patio.
An arched hallway leads you to the private master wing and office. The master suite offers river views, outside access, 2 enormous his and hers closets, a double vanity, walk in shower, and garden tub. Back down the hall, on the opposite wing, you will find 3 more bedrooms, each with an en suite full bath (one currently being used as a theater room). There is also an extra storage room currently used as a gun room, a large pantry, mudroom, and a full gym with a half bath over the 3 car garage. The home is also protected by upgrades such as a whole home generator, whole home camera system, and a grinder pump for the septic. Within the last 18 months the 3 AC units have been replaced and the 2 Rennai hot water systems are brand new.
The guest home is a beautiful brick ranch recently gutted, brought back to life, and being used as a rental. With soaring high ceilings, black Quartz countertops, a wood burning fireplace, front and back porches, and a large open living area, this 3 bedroom home is ideal for extra family, guests, or potential extra income.
Come find yourself immersed in privacy, and take a tranquil step back in time onto this Lowcountry estate while being only minutes away from the conveniences, golf, beaches, fine dining, and shopping of Kiawah Island and just 25 minutes from Downtown Charleston.
