712 Ellis Oak Drive

Nestled on a 2 acre private marshfront lot in the gated community of Ellis Oaks, this custom-built home is just five minutes from downtown Charleston and epitomizes Lowcountry living with a light-filled floor plan, outdoor living spaces and fantastic water views from most rooms in the home. The property is set back from the street on a private point with expansive marsh views on three sides of the home. A wrap-around porch provides an ideal place to enjoy the bountiful live oaks, lush landscaping and sweeping views. Inside, the home is thoughtfully designed with the living spaces and master suite on the first floor, and a secondary master suite and guest bedrooms upstairs. Details include tall ceilings, abundant natural light, crown molding, wainscoting, hardwood floors, built-ins and and more. The living room, dining room and kitchen are combined into one open space which is great for everyday living or entertaining. French doors open to the screened porch, the perfect place to enjoy the sunrise or sunset. Just beyond the screened porch is a barbecue deck with a natural gas line, which provides a nice vantage point from which to see the marsh, the point, and the driveway. A fireplace anchors the living room, while the kitchen has nice finishes including granite counters, high-end stainless appliances, tile backsplash, a spacious walk-in pantry with custom shelving and second fridge, and a mudroom with an additional sink and dishwasher.

The downstairs master suite is a truly private retreat and features a well-sized sitting room with a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, uninterrupted views of the marsh and access to the screened porch. The master bedroom also accesses the back porch, along with an en suite bath with a tiled tub/shower. The remaining bedrooms are located upstairs, including the secondary master suite which features a large bedroom, a separate office, two walk-in closets and an en suite bath with a jetted tub, tiled shower and dual sink vanity. There are two additional guest rooms, each with their own en suite bath and walk-in closet, along with a laundry room and sitting room. Since the home is elevated, there is a three car garage, with ample room for storage, and a partially conditioned room. The backyard is large and truly private with grand oaks leading to the marsh. The neighborhood features a community dock to provide deepwater boat access and is perfectly positioned near the base of the connector so you can be downtown in just five minutes and on Folly Beach in fifteen.
