- Leize Gaillard


For natural beauty and privacy without sacrificing easy access to historic Charleston, look no further than this 4 bed/4.5 bath, 4.98 acre deepwater oasis, just 18.5 miles from the heart of downtown. This tranquil Johns Island property gives boaters, anglers, and nature lovers direct access to the New Cut of the Stono River, a beautiful section near where the Stono meets the Wadmalaw River and the Intracoastal Waterway. Overlooking a swath of largely undevelopable marshland and maritime forests, the picturesque, virtually unspoiled views from this property are a rare find in a location close enough to Charleston for a daily commute.From the winding, oak-canopied Chisolm Road, you'll turn through a gracious brick and wrought iron entry gate onto your private gravel driveway leading toyour westward facing waterfront home. Custom built in 1999 and situated just yards from the marsh edge, this two-story home was designed to take advantage of the surrounding natural beauty and stunning views. From most rooms in the home and from the spacious elevated deck, you're able to watch wildlife, witness the subtly beautiful seasonal color changes of the marsh, and take in spectacular sunsets. The elevated main floor features a great room with gas fireplace and vaulted ceiling, kitchen and eat-in breakfast area, laundry room, powder room, and a spacious master suite with additional fireplace and walk-in closet. The ground floor has three full bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, plus a large family/media room with a third fireplace and built-in bookcases. Every bedroom in the house has a private outdoor access—onto the elevated deck from the master bedroom and onto the covered ground floor loggia or yard from the downstairs bedrooms. The elevator (from garage up to main floor) and main floor master suite would allow for simple one-story living for empty nesters or retirees, with the option to expand into the secondary bedrooms when family or friends visit, and the ground floor with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms and a bonus room make this home equally ideal for a large family who needs the extra space full-time. Buyers wishing to make aesthetic updates to suit personal tastes will find the underlying structure sturdy and the existing floor plan adaptable and ready for personalization. From the home, it's just a few yards to the private deepwater dock. The dock walkway travels under the reaching branches of a stunning live oak, with built-in bench seating to allow you to sit under the canopy of this natural wonder. Lining the length of the walkway are rope handrails, a feature that enhances safety and usability if you wish to stroll out to the dock to enjoy a quiet night sky. The covered pier head features built-in seating on two sides and has electricity and water, including a large stainless steel sink for cleaning your catch of the day and a showerhead for rinsing off after a refreshing summer creek swim. Johns Island is a barrier island community just outside the city of Charleston. Home of Angel Oak, bordering Kiawah and Seabrook, and offering a growing number of restaurant and shopping options, Johns Island is a popular choice for area full time and seasonal residents seeking natural beauty and a rural setting with accessibility to downtown Charleston. This home is one of the ONLY 4 bed/4 bath deepwater homes with acreage listed under $2.5m and still within an easy drive to downtown Charleston. Don't miss this rare opportunity for your slice of tranquil and private deepwater Lowcountry living.

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.
