Opportunity to own a private 3-acre estate on Johns Island. 2258 Shad Drive is located just off the picturesque oak allée of River Road in the established Shoreline Farms neighborhood. On a professionally landscaped corner lot, it is one of only two homes on Shad Drive and the only house on that side of street. A deep front porch welcomes you in to the entry hall, which is flanked by a formal living room with a fireplace to the left and a den to the right, as well as a half bath.
To the back of the house is another living area with a built-in bookcase and double doors that open to the deck. A large formal dining room with a brick hearth and fireplace is the focal point of this level. The living spaces have beautiful wide antique heart pine floors and decorative moldings. The large kitchen has a walk-in pantry and a separate breakfast room. There is also a bedroom with en suite bath and walk-in closet on the first floor. A tiled sun room runs across the back of the house, with a deck to one side and a screened porch to the other. The sunroom, kitchen, and living room all overlook a saltwater pool with automatic cover and diving board.
Upstairs, the master suite includes a massive walk-in closet/dressing room. The master bath has dual sinks, a jetted tub and a large walk-in shower with 2 shower heads. There is a cedar closet in the hall. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath. Another bedroom off the hall makes an ideal office. All bedrooms and the hall have storage closets in the dormers. A large laundry/utility room completes the second floor.
Behind the house, off the circular driveway, you’ll find a detached 2-car garage with an additional 1181 sq.ft. of climate-controlled living space. A room currently used as a home gym is on the ground floor. It would also make a good hobby room or separate office. Above the garage are 2 large finished rooms and a 3/4 bath.
The 3 acres of private land have been planted by a master gardener with 68 varieties of camellias, azaleas and fruit trees including bananas, lemons and figs. Wild life and birds abound throughout the woods. Enjoy the scenery from the new oyster shell tabby fire pit and surrounding seating area. There is also a play fort for children and a storage shed in the yard. History and archaeology buffs will enjoy the opportunity to go treasure hunting on the property: the current owner has found a button, horseshoe and bullet shells. Shoreline Farms includes a neighborhood boat launch. 2258 Shad Drive provides a plantation-like setting on Johns Island with all the modern conveniences, yet still close to the beaches and historic downtown Charleston.
