With no detail overlooked, this home marries low maintenance & energy efficiency with custom quality. Gorgeous artisan-made cabinetry and woodwork, wood & specialty tile flooring, custom doors & railings, and skip-trail walls exemplify the quality and character you'll find in this home. Whether you're looking for a tranquil retreat, an outdoor sportsman's paradise, a B & B, or an event venue, this property will not disappoint Additional features include:

- Amazing yard features a 1-acre fishing pond, a grove of fruit trees (4 pear, 2 plum, 1 fig, and 1 crab apple), a koi pond, an herb garden, a greenhouse, a storage/utility shed, and more.

- The 1-acre pond is surrounded by beautiful purple irises and is fully stocked with bass for fishing, brim to feed the bass, and grass carp to keep the pond clean. It also features boxes for wood ducks and a rope bridge to an island with an adirondack bench made of cypress wood which CONVEYS and makes the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset.

- Koi pond features a waterfall, a biological garden, and a bog garden that naturally filter the water and keep it clean and clear for all of the beautiful Koi, which will convey with the property.

- Gourmet kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances, pull-out drawers in cabinets, a 42 cubic foot Sub Zero refrigerator (only a few years old), a whisper-quiet Samsung dishwasher, an extra wide Maytag convection oven, and more.

- Master suite on the main floor features views of the water, a gas fireplace, multiple closets (including a walk-in cedar closet), a huge master bathroom, and access to the back deck.

- Master bath features a large soaking tub, a gas fireplace, a huge frameless shower, tile flooring, and a large vanity area with double sinks.

- Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located upstairs in the main house, along with a full bathroom. All bedrooms have views of the water out the back. Bedroom 3 overlooks the 2-story family room and is enclosed by a custom artisan-made barn-style sliding door. It works perfectly as guest quarters or would make an ideal game room, upstairs sitting area, playroom, craft room, another office, etc. A curtain or screen could easily be added along the railing to offer additional privacy without permanently eliminating the lovely view.

- Spacious screened-in-porch features 16-ft. ceilings, board & batten wainscoting, custom railings, pull-down sun shades, outdoor speakers, a hammock system, and a granite-topped credenza which CONVEYS with the home.

- Back deck features an outdoor kitchen under a pergola with a built-in stainless steel gas grill, an extra burner, and a rotisserie rack; a stainless steel sink; a granite countertop; and Hardiplank shingle siding.

- 250-ft. DEEP WATER dock on Church Creek was recently reinforced with stainless steel screws and features a covered pier head with bench seating & a teak table, electricity, and a gangway to a floating dock -- perfect for boating, crabbing, shrimping, fishing, etc. Water depth is 7' at low tide, 12'-15' at high tide, and the channel is deep water from the dock out to the Intracoastal Waterway.

- View across Church Creek will remain unchanged as land is owned by a Conservancy.

- Waterfowl and lowcountry wildlife abound with great blue heron, green heron, wood ducks, and more.

- Tons of storage including 3 attics in the main house and extra storage spaces over closets.

- Highly energy efficient home with spray foam and blown-in insulation, geothermal HVACs, and Marathon water heaters.

- Whole-home reverse osmosis (R.O.) water system.

- Whole-home generator (just a little over a year old).

- Transferrable termite bond with Terminix.

- Diesel Ford tractor CONVEYS and mows the lawn in 1.5 hours.

- Detached 2-car garage features tons of storage, a wine cellar/cabinet that CONVEYS, and a special canning kitchen complete with tile counters and an electric stove.

- Huge FROG (finished room over garage) features maple flooring, built-in cabinets and shelving, a built-in desk, extra attic storage space, and is heated and cooled by a conventional HVAC. It is currently used as an office and workout area, but would make an excellent income unit, mother-in-law suite, man cave, or guest suite with the addition of a bathroom.

- Wood shop/workshop area off garage is heated and cooled by an HVAC and features built-in workbenches and a Jet Air Filtration System specially designed for woodworking. Seller will consider selling many of the power tools. If interested in a specific item, please ask.

- Detached pottery/art studio has water, electricity, and is heated and cooled. It would also make an excellent pool house, if one wanted to put in an in-ground pool (there is plenty of space between there and the shore).

- Sellers have a full set of plans (architectural and engineer drawings), construction estimates, and permits in hand to build a detached 900 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest cottage, which would bring the property to a total of 3,894 sq. ft., 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with the potential for a 6th bedroom if the FROG is converted into a bedroom (would not be difficult to add a full bath in the FROG either). The full set of cottage plans are available for purchase. The cottage would make a great addition to the property if used as a Bed & Breakfast, event venue, or even just to give your guests ultimate privacy. More details available upon request.

- There is no other property with this much to offer in the Charleston area. Don't let it slip away! Book your showing today!!
