Description

Few properties have a story, an ethos that draws us in with an undeniable sense of connection. It is the feeling of arriving home, our true North. 4265 Wild Turkey Way is such a property. The vision for this exquisite estate began with the selection of a 4.09-acre parcel along the shores of Lake Sharon in the private Briar's Creek Golf Community on Johns Island. Situated on a cul-de-sac street, this exclusive homesite is a Lowcountry oasis offering 200 feet of unobstructed water views, tranquil gardens and privacy. The generously sized estate includes the opportunity to add a guest house or a dock on the lake. The owner partnered with renowned architect Wayne Windham to bring her vision to life.The result is a uniquely captivating home steeped in old world charm anchored by new world luxury. No details were spared in the design and build of the "Secret Garden Cottage". Burke Lee Construction transformed their vision into reality, incorporating meticulous detail combined with specifically sourced materials during every aspect of this custom home build. And now, 4265 Wild Turkey Way is available for purchase; ready to write a new chapter with new characters. As you drive into the property, you are greeted by grand live oak trees, native azaleas, crepe myrtles and palmetto trees. Your spirit lifts as you approach the gated arch stone entryway. The home is anchored by a 5/8" thick Vermont slate roof. The exterior showcases genuine stacked stone surrounding cement stucco. The whimsical elegance of this home captures your heart immediately as you approach the front entry door featuring a hand painted leaded glass door with an additional custom wood screen door for the days you wish to capture the jasmine scented Lowcountry breezes. 4265 Wild Turkey Way's outdoor living space epitomizes Lowcountry sophistication. The home's southern orientation offers the warmth of the winter sun and welcomed shade in the summer. The southerly exposure ensures full sun on the pool deck and warm sea breezes. Two outdoor porches frame each end of the lakefront residence. A covered loggia just off the living room is centered between the two porches. The grand porch with cathedral ceiling and blue stone flooring is perfect for year-round entertaining. It overlooks one of the tranquil English gardens beaming with color and fragrant blossoms that attract pollinators. Hummingbirds and butterflies dart about offering endless entertainment. In cooler months, cozy up around the wood burning fireplace with a stacked stone hearth and chimney. For warmer months, a motorized full screen on the lake side may be raised or lowered for comfort. The outdoor summer kitchen features custom Ipe cabinetry and a Lynx grill with two cooktop burners. It is thoughtfully hidden from view behind a historic barn door, handcrafted in Pennsylvania. The garden area just beyond the grand porch is the perfect area for a vegetable garden as it benefits from southern exposure in the winter and offers respite from the full summer sun. Cultivate local favorites such as okra, Johns Island tomatoes and summer squash. A second covered porch lies off the primary suite on the east end of the home. Jasmine bursts with sweet aromas from the arched trellises located near each porch, creating outside "rooms", each with its own unique qualities and features. Bluebird and wood duck houses strategically located through-out the estate create a peaceful sanctuary on the tranquil lake shoreline. Outdoor fun continues around the aggregate finished saltwater pool with parallel bench seating and custom lighting. The pool deck area features imported French blue stone. Stroll through the ground level enclosed gardens and soak up the tranquility of the antique European fountain, maybe your imagination will catch a glimpse of Mary Lennox darting through the perennials! 4265 Wild Turkey Way's interior captivates you from the moment you enter. Warm walnut flooring, arched entryways and burnished Venetian plaster walls accented by wide custom crown molding and deep baseboards conjure an old-world ethos. The great room draws your eyes in with a coffered ceiling of hand-hewn beams. It is perfectly sized for intimate evenings warmed by the brick gas fireplace surrounded by beautiful walnut built-in bookcases. In warmer months, this 3,819 square foot home remains perfectly comfortable from each of the 3 zones controlled by Honeywell thermostats.

Closed cell insulation along with Loewen high impact windows and glass doors offer maximum modern efficiency while retaining an old-world charm.
