This is a very special and rare opportunity to purchase a quintessential, private, gated, family compound with 17.44 acres on Simmons Creek on Johns Island. From the moment you drive through the gate, you are blown away from the beauty of the Live Oaks, the ponds, and the gorgeous fields. Following the drive, you end up at the main house and guest house that are both situated perfectly with unobstructed views of Simmons Creek. This is truly an idyllic and serene lowcountry property. While on the property, there isn't a single neighbor in sight. There are no homes across the creek. This is truly a private country retreat, yet very close to Maybank, Downtown Charleston, the Limehouse bridge to Hwy 17, and also the Limehouse boat landing. The property has a dock with floater, jet dock, power, and water. The dock has deep water at low tide. Behind the Main House is a 20'x40' gunnite pool with hot tub and spa surrounded by a custom concrete deck. While enjoying the pool and the view, you can grill out with your custom built-in grill with 2 separate burners and pot filler. In addition to all of the property's outdoor fun, there is a fire pit surrounded by adirondack chairs to take it all in. The large brick Main House has plenty of room with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The kitchen boasts all high-end Dacor appliances, including gas cooktop, built-in refrigerator, microwave, double wall oven, beverage/wine cooler, trash compactor, and dishwasher. The living room has all built-in cabinets and a site-built masonry wood-burning fireplace with a gas log lighter. The house is hard-wired with a whole house stand-by generator and one buried 1,000 gallon propane tank as well as a buried 100 gallon tank. There are two Rinnai tankless water heaters. There is a ton of storage in this home! The large Guest House on the property is 2,703 square feet and was custom built in 2012. It has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It has a very open floor plan, tall ceilings, formal dining room, and a separate den/office. The kitchen has a built-in SubZero refrigerator with cabinet front trim, drawer microwave, high-end Dacor gas cooktop, Dacor wall oven, dual one wine cooler, and dishwasher. The kitchen, breakfast area, and living room are all open to one another for entertaining. The living room has a raised hearth fireplace with gas logs. The master suite is very large with a huge walk-in closet with built-in shelving. The master bathroom has a garden tub, a large custom tile shower with bench, steam shower, and dual lavatories. The guest bedroom has a private bath and walk-in closet. There is a walk-in pantry, large laundry room with sink and trash compactor. The Guest House also has a whole-house stand-by generator with a 1,000 gallon buried propane tank. The screened porch, overlooking Simmons Creek, also has a built-in custom grill with hood. Also on the property is a large shed which has an amazing "man cave/trophy room." The trophy room has heart pine walls, flat screened TV, bar with beverage cooler/wine refrigerator. This is a seriously cool room!!! All three parcels included on this property have a single rock driveway with a private automatic gate. There are gorgeous, ancient Live Oaks and other specimens throughout the property. All parcels are zoned RR-3 which means that the 11.51 acre parcel could be subdivided with 1 unit per 3 acres. There is no HOA or visible neighbors on this property. Horses and other farm animals ARE permitted. A barn and pasture could be easily added to make this into a horse farm. All power to the property is all underground. Both homes are on Septic but have City Water. Both home have alarm systems. Again, this is a very rare and special opportunity in Charleston! This property is worth seeing!!!
