A Unique Quality of Live Awaits...
Just 45 Minues South of Charleston, SC 

This wooded waterfront property on Edisto Island features a custom-designed home, conceived by noted architect, Lesesne Monteith, and built to allow for the maximum enjoyment of the quintessential pleasures of the South Carolina Lowcountry. 

The deep waters of Russell Creek invite easy access to the North Edisto River, the ICW, and the Atlantic Ocean for large and small boats; but mostly the quiet of the creek is left to the residents who kayak, swim, fish, shrimp, and crab from their docks and the dolphins who enjoy sharing the sunset with them. Close to the Edisto Island National Scenic Byway, the property is 15 minutes from Edisto Beach and an easy 45 minute drive to Charleston’s medical, culinary, and cultural amenities. To approach the house drive through 3.65 acres of ancient live oaks with Spanish moss and groves of palmettos. The house design is a unique blend of island elegance with clean contemporary lines. 

On the creek side the house features a screened "live-in" porch running the entire length of the home, with a wall of 10 French doors opening the kitchen, dining area, living area, library, and master bedroom to the corresponding areas on the porch. 

Downstairs are the master bedroom and bath with Jacuzzi tub and shower, and a half bath for guests. Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms and two full baths with showers and tubs. Exceptional cross ventilation on both floors enables open-air living for much of the year. A bonus is the solar panel roof system, which provides significant green-energy savings in electricity year round and guilt-free summertime cooling. 

This Russell Creek neighborhood is bounded by protected forests, fields, and wetlands that create a permanent sanctuary for wildlife and birds and the promise of a peaceful sanctuary for people into the future. All of Edisto Island is a part of the 350,000 acre ACE Basin, a tidal-river basin preserve that will never be developed.
