FLOOD FREE EDISTO RIVERFRONT ESTATE (Active)
High on a bluff overlooking the Edisto River, 412 Givhans Ferry Road sits on one of the only flood zone free direct riverbank areas in all of the Lowcountry. 23 acres of rural paradise with almost 450′ of river frontage, a multilevel riverside dockhouse, large ponds, forest, potential pastures, multiple large utility sheds/workshops, a 60Kw diesel generator, a secondary manufactured home and a beautiful main residence with a separate mother in law suite make this a truly unique offering. The main house is framed up with all steel construction and is designed to handle any of the crazy weather that the Lowcountry can throw at it. Inside, you’ll find a luxuriously appointed home that is designed with liveability in mind.
A large downstairs owner’s suite sits privately at one end of the home. The octagonal bedroom features a cozy fireplace, tray ceilings, and direct outdoor access to the rear patio and pool area. There are two large walk-in closets. 14′ high ceilings allow for a double tier of storage and the custom built-ins make for an elegant feel. An oversized, walk-in fireproof safe has plenty of room for any valuables that might need extra protection. The master bathroom is clad in a beautiful polished marble on the floors and walls and features a large jetted tub, custom oversized corner shower, a furniture style double bowl vanity and a private W/C. The main living area is designed on a truly impressive scale. The great room has ceilings nearly 20′ high and a massive two story fireplace as a focal point. Oversized windows and doors let in lots of natural light. A large gourmet kitchen with overheight custom stained cabinets and granite counters has a full stainless appliance suite with a professional grade gas range and exhaust hood. It flows into a large eat-in area nestled in a dramatic two story bay window niche. The formal dining room sits off to the side of the main entry foyer and is large enough for family gatherings. On the other side of the foyer, a beautiful home office with 14′ high ceilings and elegant wainscot detailing offers a private place to work from home. One of the remaining bedrooms is on the first floor and has access to a full bath in the back hall. The remaining bedroom sits upstairs and has its own ensuite, marble clad bathroom and walk-in closet. There is a loft overlooking the Great Room and is large enough for a variety of uses. This property has a completely separate Mother-in-law suite attached directly to the main house. A separate entrance off of the pool area ensures complete independence. This adorable suite features a main living area with an open floor plan. The L shaped kitchen has a small eat-in and overlooks the living room. A large bedroom has a laundry closet and ensuite bathroom.
This property is all about outdoor living. The back of the home has outdoor access from nearly every room allowing for easy access to the beautifully terraced backyard. An inground pool serves as the centerpoint and has plenty of patio space for large parties and multiple seating groups. A multilevel pavilion overlooks the Edisto River. This is one of the longest ‘blackwater’ rivers in the world and has water so clean that it was once used as a source of freshwater for the city of Charleston. The upper deck consists of a screened porch with a cast iron heater for those chilly winter nights and an open deck cantilevered high over the water. Two flights of stairs lead you down to the floating dock that it tethered into the bluff to handle any level of current.
There is so much more to this property that you need to come see for yourself. Multiple large steel buildings serve as utility sheds, workshops, toy garages, barns, you name it. A separate manufactured home sits on the opposite side of the main pond and offers the perfect opportunity for multiple family members. Properties like this one rarely come on the market.
