Chinquapin Point

8544 Pope Landing Road, Edisto Island

Built in 2007, this Edisto Island home is a raised two-story nestled among oaks beside a tidal creek and wrapped on three sides by marsh.  It is an interpretation of a “sea island” home with a standing-seam metal roof, gable brackets, wide plank siding, louvered storm shutters, exposed and scalloped rafter tails, and wrap-around porches.  Each room of the house offers a water or marsh view.  The house was designed by Cobb Architects of Mt. Pleasant and constructed by Patrick Henry Construction of Charleston.  It received a 2008 Prism Award from the Charleston Trident Home Builders Assoc. for the best home that year in its price range.
