Exclusive Private Estate in Wando Farms. Very few people will ever experience the prestigious lifestyle found on this 573 acre nature conservation easement, the peace and quiet, the gorgeous nature, the sense of well-being, yet, those living here also enjoy all the modern conveniences of Mt. Pleasant-Wando High School and Roper Hospital are five minutes away; Town Center, and the beaches are within 10 minutes, and the Ravenel Bridge is only 14 miles away. With one and a half miles of protected frontage on Highway 17 North, this is truly an oasis inside a fast growing town. A unique combination of elegance, privacy, and exclusivity can be found at Wando Farms; a development shared by only 14 fortunate owners, (no more ever), each enjoying their own private estates within the enclave.From horse-back riding (from the community's seven stall barn), bicycling, jogging or riding an ATV, birdwatching, hunting and skeet shooting, the farm's untouched hardwood and pine forests and wide open fields are abundant with wild birds (turkeys, bald eagles, ospreys, hawks and owls), and nesting turtles and deer. Towering ancient oak trees shade the long soft-sand roads and trails that crisscross the land. Entering this paradise through old-Carolina style hand-made brick columns and oversized carriage lights, through a gracious courtyard, electric gates open to a shaded pea gravel drive, a lovely Colonial style garden full of fruit trees, flowers, roses and herbs. The entire front yard has been fenced to keep pets nearby. Guests know they have arrived somewhere very special, a place where nature, tranquility, sunshine and the water melt tensions away. Built in 2000 the house has been recently enlarged and redesigned to approximately 4200 welcoming square feet. The new design captures the soul of casual and elegant Charleston Low Country Living-with sunlit rooms, porches everywhere and solid materials. Elegant, authentic spaces-both warm and cozy and big and bright. Three high ceiling master bedrooms are on the main floor, each with full baths and private porches to access the outside, and two loft bedrooms (which are now used as his and her home-offices) provide ample room for everyone. The sun room designed with black/white diagonal tiles and soft yellow walls calls out old Charleston style. The great room ceiling soars, with hand hewn beams and its wood-burning fireplace built of river stones from Montana. The floors are over a century old heart pine. While the 640 square foot French-country Kitchen, with its soaring ceiling, windows on both sides, access to both a front kitchen garden porch and the back yard, is centered with a 10 foot' quartzite island and state of the art cabinets and appliances. It is a cook's dream. The house is sited on one of the most beautiful estuaries anywhere, facing southwest, dramatic big-sky sunsets reflect on the River, framed by moss covered ancient live oak trees whose graceful branches stretch over the water and the dock; with its grill, table that seats eight and seating for even more, this is where everyone comes together for family fun. It is truly an extension of the home.
