Description of 451 Bulls Island Road, Awendaw, SC 29429

Just 12 minutes from Mt. Pleasant's Roper Hospital North, Costco and Wando High School, and surrounded by the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, Francis Marion National Forest and privately protected land, imagine living on an incredible 37-acre East Cooper private estate, commanding spectacular long-range views of the intracoastal waterway, marshes and open waters of Sewee and Bulls Bay. A private and exclusive waterfront oasis with a luxury home, brackish water pond, saltwater fishing and kayak dock, barn, sheds, workshops, garden, woods, fields and many other outdoor amenities. An extraordinary opportunity in an extraordinary setting. There are simply too many highlights to itemize here, however we have a full description of this once-in-a-lifetime property in the documents section. ...Within the estate the home, pond and saltwater dock are oriented south to the Intracoastal waterway and marshes and waters of Sewee and Bulls Bay. With unbelievable views. That alone is a unique and special lifestyle. But what makes this estate so special and unique is not only the water/marsh orientation and lifestyle, but that use in combination with other land uses as well. The barn originally housed horses and cows but is now an enjoyable outdoor venue for gatherings. The barn annex once housed chickens, rabbits and goats but is now a woodworking shop. Next to the barn is an enclosed and irrigated vegetable garden. All surrounded by pastures, fields and woods. And beyond the barn are sheds used for tractor and equipment storage and maintenance. All contained within a gated, private entry. Prominent features of the estate include:" The Home. The approximate 4,067 square foot custom home constructed in 2002 includes 2 levels of heated and cooled living space above ground floor parking, with an option to improve the approximate 850 square foot 3rd level for additional use. Extensive custom woodwork, plantation shutters and heart pine floors are found throughout. A new metal roof was installed in late 2018. An elevator runs from the ground floor to the first and second floors of the home. o First Floor. The approximate 2090 square foot first floor of the home is designed for entertaining. The kitchen with a gas cooktop and electric appliances (to include a double oven, dishwasher, 2 refrigerators and a microwave oven) is designed to flow around a center island. Surrounding the kitchen is a large pantry, an oversized dining room and an entertainment/breakfast room space with additional table seating. The living room is large and able to host all types of gatherings, and next to the living room is a powder room. The first floor is also complimented by an interior sunroom and a specially designed 850 square foot covered back porch and a 375 square foot covered front porch. o Second Floor. The approximate 1977 square foot second floor of the home is designed to accommodate bedrooms, bathrooms and family rest areas located away from the first-floor entertainment area. It includes a master suite which has direct access to a large 700 square foot deck and 150 square foot covered porch. In the master suite, the large master bedroom has a 2-story gable ceiling, where the southern facing wall of 2 story windows overlooks the Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge. The balance of the master suite includes a separate sitting/dressing room, office with built in cabinetry, master bath with double separate vanities, oversized walk in closet with custom built in shelving, cedar walk in closet, private commode room, and separate large bathroom with oversized soaking tub and large walk in shower with built in seating. In addition to the master suite, two other bedrooms are located on the second floor. The rear second bedroom is a double room oriented to the south and is presently used as a home office. This office area or potential bedroom has built in bookshelves along with a walk-in closet with built in shelving. This double room makes for a wonderful home office but also will serve as a bedroom with plenty of space for bedroom furniture and a reading/dressing area. The front third bedroom is graciously sized with plenty of windows to let in natural light and has a walk-in closet. The second and third bedrooms share a full bath located between the two. In completion of the second-floor features is a full-sized laundry room with built in cabinets, closet, washer and dryer, and more.o Third Floor. The approximate 850 square foot unfinished 3rd floor now serves as attic storage, but with the roughed in plumbing could be converted to other useable heated and cooled space. o Garage and Underneath Use. The elevated home is constructed over a finished garage and storage space below. The approximate 1650 square foot garage space includes 3 car bays and a bay for a golf cart, each bay with its own garage door. In addition, the garage area has a finished half bath, and an enclosed room used for "exercise" and storage. The underneath covered space also includes about 1100 square feet presently unused. " The Flower Garden. Immediately surrounding the home is an approximate 1 acre fenced garden enclosure, all under timed irrigation, and planted over time with all types of annuals, perennials, flowering bushes and trees, fruit trees, grasses and other plant materials. " The Pond. Behind the home there is an approximate 1-acre brackish water pond, which serves both to capture and filter storm water and to host all types of native wildlife. Watching wildlife in and around the pond from the back porches of the home is a special treat. " The Dock and Pierhead. Beyond the pond and out towards the waterway is an approximate 750-foot walkway, at the end of which is a fixed pier head and floating dock. Spot tail bass fishing in the flats of the tidal marshes surrounding the walkway and pierhead, whether in a kayak or on the walkway and dock, is special. The floating dock is designed for kayak access and can accommodate a flat bottom boat. The fixed pier head is covered and is a great venue for outdoor meals and entertaining." The Barn. Once a 4-stall horse barn with a wash stall and tack room, the barn has been converted to a magical entertainment venue. With a kitchen and half bath, the "barn" is a prominent feature of the estate. " The Workshop. Once a space for chickens and small animals, as an annex to the barn, there is a workshop addition with wood floors. Perfect for any hobby. " The Vegetable Garden. At the barn site is a fenced irrigated garden area used to grow vegetables and grapes. " The Sheds. At the far end of the property are separate shed buildings to include a 2-bay tractor shed, a 6-bay equipment shed and other related storage buildings. These sheds are used for tractor and tractor implement storage and maintenance but can be used for many other purposes. " The Entry. At the entry to the property is a landscaped feature designed around a fence and private gate.
