Here’s your chance! Own a ~HISTORIC DEEP WATER PROPERTY~ located on the pristine North Santee River. This very well-maintained, MOVE-IN READY, WATERFRONT ESTATE with expansive river and marsh views is built on the site of the landing for the 1741 FERRY SYSTEM linking Charleston and Georgetown counties. Enjoy your own piece of paradise away from the hustle of bustle of the city, yet close enough to enjoy the city when the mood arises.
This TRUE DEEP WATER, expansive estate is situated on 6.75 acres, canopied by oaks and located at the end of a serene, paved Lowcountry drive. The entrance to the property is gated and opens up to the homestead surrounded by dozens of huge live oaks laden with Spanish moss. Over 620 feet of water frontage can be subdivided to accommodate another waterfront home, guest house, or family compound. Bring your boat, jet ski, kayaks, and other toys and take full advantage of your PRIVATE COVERED DOCK WITH FLOATER. The open layout of the home provides the ability to take in the views from almost every room. Nestled between Hopsewee and Oak Plantations, this retreat boasts wide-plank heart pine floors throughout, 10 foot smooth ceilings, a central vacuum system, custom milled cypress woodwork, and walls of windows making this a nature lover’s paradise.
This spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is the ideal layout for family, entertaining, and outdoor living. Enjoy a coveted Lowcountry lifestyle by sitting on the full front porch, the over-sized screened patio with gorgeous in-ground pool, large screened porch off the HUGE master suite, or the second story deck overlooking the river and expansive yard and gardens. In addition to the master suite’s screened veranda, the second downstairs bedroom has full front porch access and takes advantage of the gorgeous river views.
Although you feel like you have escaped the city, you are only about 35 miles from Mt Pleasant shopping and restaurants– including the new Roper St. Francis hospital in Mt Pleasant. Gorgeous beaches are only a few minutes away by land or by boat, and don’t forget how close you will be to beautiful and historic downtown Charleston. Able to accommodate a large boat, navigate the River from your dock to the intercoastal waterway in about 5 minutes, and the Atlantic Ocean in about 7.
World class golf is a short drive north to Myrtle Beach or south to one of the 5 Championship Golf Courses near Charleston. Reminiscent of GONE WITH THE WIND, this home sits just across the River from the Historic and picturesque Hampton Plantation.
