Introducing Black Pond, a magnificent Georgian-style estate on 14-acres designed to maximize the breathtaking views of the waterway and marshes. Upon entry to the property from Chisolm Road, the privacy gate leads you through acres of spectacular oak trees laden with Spanish moss setting the scene for the entrance to the Georgian masterpiece. On one side of the property is a fully stocked saltwater pond, known as Black Pond, the namesake for the property. Designed by the owner with the help of Atelier Architects, and built by Jack Burton in 1999; Black Pond’s intended use was for multiple generations to live and enjoy life comfortably, together. The outstanding quality of construction and materials used throughout the home is evident.The dramatic 2-story entrance provides an immediate view of the water and marshes and includes a beautifully designed circular staircase. The floors throughout are recently refinished antique heart-pine sourced from an old southern home. The generously proportioned formal dining room is on your left and the solid mahogany library on your right; both designed with entertaining in mind. Walk straight through the foyer to panoramic views of your infinity pool and spa and New Cut Creek, which provides easy access to the Stono River.
Black Pond’s design provides for maximum living flexibility. There are two separate main bedroom suites on either side of the home; each with a full gourmet kitchen and living rooms to accommodate life under one roof. The upstairs living room is more casual, and designed to be a secondary space for family gatherings and entertaining. Features include a stone hearth fireplace, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, antiqued pine cabinetry and some of the Lowcountry’s finest views.
The solid mahogany library serves as a bar, home office and game-room. From the foyer leading in, there are wood panels that open up to the bar, perfect for nights when the bar is being used and guests can enjoy access from two areas.
Outdoor living includes immaculate landscaping, generous outdoor entertainment, dining and gathering spaces set around the infinity pool and spa. Features include a built in refrigerator, sink and gas grill and a striking stone fireplace. It is a short walk to the boardwalk and dock with easy deep-water access to the Stono River.
An elevator provides easy access to all three stories from the hidden four car garage/ basement level. The fully furnished basement is perfect for game or movie night; with a gorgeous custom built wine cellar and adds additional square footage.
Chisolm Road is a 10-mile loop on Johns Island. Black Pond is located in the Raven’s Bluff subdivision; just miles from Charleston peninsula. Black Pond is the last deep-water dock on the new cut creek, so there is very little boat traffic. The dock was originally built to be shared, but is exclusive to Black Pond.
All of the modern conveniences with timelessness and old Charleston charm; take a visit to the land of no worries before it’s too late.
