This exquisite deep-water family retreat on Johns Island was designed by Samuel Furr Architects on a 2.5 acre estate homesite in 2010. This is the builder's personal residence. It is surrounded by twisted and gnarled live oak trees, and a tidal creek borders the back side of the estate. Drive through the brick columned entrance passing magnificent ancient live oaks and arrive at the classic Southern front porch. The sprawling 8332 square foot home provides 180-degree panoramic views across the marsh and over the Kiawah River. The main house has 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms and features a beautiful slate roof, hurricane impact windows, 12'' reclaimed heart pine floors, pecky cypress beams, knotty cedar plank ceilings and an epicurean's kitchen with Wolf appliances. Nearly every room captures the magical views of the river. The Master Retreat with sitting room/study is elegantly designed for comfort and has doors directly onto the back deck to your private sitting area facing the creek or for a dip in the pool or spa. The master bath is a dream - oversized jacuzzi tup and large spa shower with multiple heads. Even his and her vanities have been designed to give ample space to each. Upstairs you will love the true Great Room with vaulted ceilings, wet bar and North Carolina stone fireplace. There are four exquisitely designed bedrooms with their own bathrooms and several areas for children to sleep, play, watch a movie or exercise. The 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath detached guest cottage with an additional two car garage provides a second sanctuary for your guests. A spectacular large infinity-edge pool with a spa and children's pool (2 ft deep), makes your family's outdoor experience even more fun. Ending the day on your huge screened porch with stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen completes this incredible Low Country lifestyle. The home was designed with energy efficiency in mind: 21 wells were dug for the geo-thermal heating and cooling system and spray foam insulation is between all floors and in the attic. The cost to replicate this superb home would be significantly higher than the listing price and you will find this home to be one of the finest custom built in all of Charleston. A deep water dock awaits you to launch your kayak, go for a boat ride or simply pull up your crap trap with the evening's supper. Briar's Creek is a gated community of over 900 acres. Only 83 homesites were developed and only three are on deep water. There are miles of nature and walking trails around an Audubon Silver Signature Sanctuary and bird nesting habitat. The Golf Club at Briar's Creek, an exclusive private golf club offers memberships but it is not a requirement of ownership. The Club is owned and operated by The McNair Group, owned by Bob McNair (owner of the Houston Texans). The golf experience here is like no other - like having your own private golf course (video attached). The Rees Jones designed golf course has won numerous awards such as Best New Private Course in America, Top 100 Greatest Courses in the US, #11 Best Golf Communities in the US and more. The Club offers a high caliber hospitality program and residents may also choose to have only a Social Membership. Be sure to watch the attached 3D Interactive tour and videos and plan your visit to this one of a kind deep water estate.
