Hoopstick is a place like no other. Driving onto the island, you feel as if you're hundreds of miles away from everything, when in fact you're just twenty minutes from all Charleston has to offer.
Welcome to Hoopstick, a pristine 145-acre (55 high) private island retreat connected by a built causeway, just 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, Kiawah, and Charleston's Executive Airport. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, the property encompasses approximately 1.3 miles of water frontage and is ideal for an individual or family seeking an incomparable private estate in the Lowcountry. Spanning across the island are four large hay fields, which could be used to reestablish the property as a horse farm, to create dove fields for hunting enthusiasts, or simply to install a custom recreational area complete with a pool, tennis court, and more. Charleston's last accessible island of its kind provides a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a place that is truly special.Located amidst the property's abundance of live oaks is the perfect spot for the next owner to build his or her custom dream home with panoramic water views. Across the creek is Bugby Plantation, a 987-acre family-owned property protected under a conservation easement, ensuring beautiful open vistas for generations to come. Hoopstick's natural beauty is unmatched, due in part to its 169 historic trees, including live oak and pecan. Significant improvements have recently been made, including the addition of a gated entryway with the property's original wrought iron gate and "Charleston Grey" bricks, the removal of outdated structures, road repavement, a redecking of the deep water dock, extensive landscaping, and a complete reengineering of the causeway to elevate and widen the subgrade, install utility conduits, and meet today's modern safety requirements.

Should a family or group wish to develop a communal compound, zoning allows a maximum of 10 subdivided lots, each with approved dock permits. Included in this sale is an adjacent 11-acre marsh-front parcel off Bohicket Road, with approximately 6 acres of high ground. An owner could either preserve the land or develop it (in a similar fashion to the neighboring Bohicket Oaks community). The island is maintained by a caretaker, who lives onsite in an existing three-bedroom caretaker house that is being sold "as is." The future owner also has the potential to apply for a conservation easement and receive a tremendous tax incentive in exchange for protecting the natural beauty of the island in perpetuity. After you step foot on Hoopstick, you'll never forget it.
The island has approximately 1.3 miles of water frontage.
The entry was reconstructed using property's original wrought iron gate and "Charleston Grey" bricks.
Direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, and plentiful nearby fishing holes.
20 minutes to Downtown, and 10 minutes to Kiawah; true peace and quiet, with access to everything you want.
GreatSchools Ratings for South Carolina are based on the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Grade reading, writing, math, science and history/social science results and the End-of-Course reading, writing, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, biology, chemistry, earth science, world geography, Virginia and United States history, world history I and world history II results. Grade 8 history/social science results were not included due to incomplete reporting by the state. GreatSchools compared the test results for each grade and subject across all Virginia schools and divided them into 1 through 10 ratings (10 is the best). Please note, private schools are not required to release test results, so ratings are available only for public schools. GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs. Keep in mind that when comparing schools using GreatSchools Ratings it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
