Enjoy panoramic waterfront views of the Wadmalaw Sound from this 6 bedroom/3 full and 2 half bath home in Martins Point Plantation. The estate is a nature lover’s dream come true, with 12.66 acres (only .818 acres of which is marsh) of wildlife retreat on a tidal creek. Experience breathtaking sunsets, marsh and water views, pastures, wildlife, a private dock for crabbing and fishing, mature trees, and an in-ground heated pool. And all this is just 20 miles from downtown Charleston.
The open light-filled floor plan takes advantage of the spectacular waterfront views from every room. The home features hardwood floors and beachy wall colors throughout. The living room sports a wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the marshes. It flows into the dining area. A breakfast bar connects to the impressively-remodeled kitchen.
The kitchen incorporates sought-after high-end elements including a farmhouse sink, reverse osmosis system, self-closing drawers and cabinets, a Thermador Professional gas stove, oversized French drawer refrigerator, and under cabinet and floor lighting and outlets. Off of the kitchen is a massive laundry room with cabinets and a sink, room for an extra fridge, and plenty of storage. The home also has the latest in smart technology with new smart lighting, doorbell, and thermostats.
The living room is flanked by 2 screened porches, one of which is accessible from the dining room, the other from the primary suite. The primary bedroom is downstairs at the other end of the house. It includes a new bathroom with dual vanities, his and her walk-in closets, and a striking free-standing tub, plus separate shower with new tile.
Outside, a new deck has space for an outdoor kitchen. It descends to a tranquil pool surrounded by a flagstone patio. In the back yard, grand moss-draped oaks frame the marsh views. The large grassy side yard is perfect for outdoor entertaining. A half bath under the house allows your guests access without entering the residence, while an outdoor shower lets you rinse off from the pool or a nature walk. A picturesque dock perfect for kayaking, canoeing, or launching a small boat is just to the right. Enjoy an evening fire while watching egrets fly past the horizon on the way to truly awe-inspiring colorful sunsets.
Upstairs, 3 bedrooms that run across the back of the property sport incredible water views and access 2 decks. Two more bedrooms are to the front of the house; one has a built-in desk and can be used as an office. Underneath the house is a 2-bay garage and a secured enclosed storage area. There is plenty of parking space in the driveway to store your boat, trailer, or camper – there’s even an RV hookup. The 12+ acres of land include 2 pasture areas ideal for the horse lover to ride though or even erect a barn and stables to create an equestrian estate. Hike until your heart’s content along nature trails that wind through your own private marshes, pine, and oak forests.
MARTINS POINT PLANTATION
Martins Point Plantation is a 900-acre informal country community consisting of 24 large deep water and marsh front homesites (18 of which have been built on) overlooking the Wadmalaw River and the Intracoastal Waterway. The master-planned community was established by 5 partners interested in creating a quiet family retreat near historic Charleston. Martins Point’s focus is its waterfront, with more than 3 miles of shoreline along the marshes of Wadmalaw Sound. It has also been a working farm for over 100 years, with 1000 acres of farmland and woodlands.
The neighborhood currently provides a 35-acre wildlife refuge and lake supporting an abundance of birds and woodland fauna and flora. Two 5-acre islands are also approachable by boat or canoe for family picnics and exploration. A community boat landing is deep water at all times. It provides access to the Intracoastal and all of the Southeast seaboard’s waterways. There are also walking trails and a saltwater pond for fishing, shrimping, or crabbing. A conservation easement with the Lowcountry Open Land Trust ensures that the island will always retain its Lowcountry character.
Wadmalaw Island is rural community located 12 miles from Charleston, along the Wadmalaw River and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is bound by Bohicket Creek, Church Creek, and the North Edisto River. The Atlantic Ocean is 9 miles downstream. With a land area of 42 square miles, it is twice the size of Manhattan, yet home to fewer than 3000 residents. The island remains mainly agricultural, with small farms that provide the produce for local Charleston restaurants. It is also home to the Charleston Tea Garden, the only working tea farm in America, and Deep Water Vineyard, the only winery in the state. Conservation easements and restrictive zoning guarantee that Wadmalaw will remain a nature lover’s paradise in the middle of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
