Exquisite Family Retreat In Briar’s Creek

An Exquisite Deep-water Family Retreat in Briar’s Creek Featured on the Cover of LHM Charleston & the Lowcountry Issue 3.6

Johns Island, SC – November 30, 2017 – This exquisite deep-water family retreat on Johns Island is located in the prestigious golf club at Briar’s Creek. The home was designed by Samuel Furr Architects on a 2.5 acre estate homesite. It is surrounded by twisted live oak trees, and a tidal creek borders the back side of the estate. Drive through the brick columned entrance, past the ancient live oaks and arrive at the classic Southern front porch. The sprawling 8,332 square foot home provides 180-degree panoramic views across the marsh and beautiful sunrises over the Kiawah River. You can boat or paddle from your dock to be with the abundant dolphin, fish for the “inshore slam”, or pull your crab trap up for the day’s fresh haul of blue crab and the occasional stone crab. The waterfront infinity edge pool, with an attached children’s pool, makes your family’s outdoor experience all the more fun. Ending the day on your huge screened porch with stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen and dining area completes this incredible Low Country lifestyle.

No detail was overlooked and this home has superb finishes to accompany a brilliant design. Entering the home, you will be wowed by so many features starting with the vaulted entryway with knotty cedar planked ceilings, river-recovered antique heart pine floors, custom fireplaces with stone surrounds from Cashiers, NC, a warm den with stunning Pecky Cypress ceiling and beams, and an open plan that leads to a large custom kitchen and dining area. The epicurean’s kitchen features the finest Wolf and Sub Zero Appliances, custom cabinetry, and granite covered counters that allow for a nice gathering place. Nearly every room has a beautiful waterfront view. The first floor Master Suite is a dream starting with your home office/study, beautiful bedroom accented with redwood beams in the vaulted ceiling and opens right onto the waterfront Ipe pool deck. The master bath is a breathtaking design with his and hers vanities plus makeup area, jacuzzi tub and a custom large tiled shower with multiple shower heads. A spacious master closet with built in drawers is perfect for his and her needs.

As you arrive on the second floor into a true Great Room – vaulted cedar planked ceilings, large stone fireplace, wet bar and of course those views, you will know this is where quality time with family will spent watching movies or sporting events. This upstairs family room is joined by five bedrooms, each with an attentive design such as a stunning cupola ceiling, beautiful tiled bathrooms, a workout area and a children’s play room. Take the back staircase down to the kitchen or the elevator travels all the way to the lower area near the garage. The home is covered by a beautiful Vermont slate roof that will stand the test of time.

And your guests can have their own space staying in the two bedroom detached guest cottage with living room, two and half bathrooms and a two car garage. The cottage has river views as well as of the tidal creek along the back edge of the property.

Under the home there are temperature controlled storage areas and game space that goes on and on, under the length of the home.

The home is set back from, but adjacent to the 9th tee box of the award-winning Golf Club at Briar’s Creek, Charleston’s most private and highly awarded golf club. Property owners may join the club as social members or golf members but it is not a requirement of living in the gated community.  Briar’s Creek is an Audubon International Silver Sanctuary designated community, the first such awarded community in the state when it was conceived. There are miles of nature trails that surround a 75 acre fresh water lake system and wind through a wildlife sanctuary where over 50 species of rare birds inhabit and nest. The 900 acre development is just 18 miles to downtown Charleston, 10 minutes to Freshfields Village, Beachwalker County Park and many fine dining and shopping options.

A deep water estate home, of this high quality, is nearly impossible to find.  The cost to rebuild this home today would nearly be double. Don’t miss the opportunity to create lasting memories and a connecting place for you and your family.
