About 6539 Maybank Highway

Tucked away on Wadmalaw Island and situated on nearly 35 private, gated acres, this property has 2,500 ft of tidal creek frontage on its eastern and northern sides. Along the creek are grand live oak trees draped in Spanish Moss which come alive daily during the sunrise and sunset hours providing a magical waterfront setting. This outdoor paradise is a haven for whitetail deer, turkeys, bald eagles, blue herons, ducks, pileated woodpeckers, songbirds, waterfowl, and red fish providing numerous daily opportunities to marvel at nature. Hunting and fishing is also allowed as there is no HOA. Wadmalaw Island is the last undeveloped island in Charleston County, making this is an extremely rare opportunity to own a large estate and countryside escape. Currently only 7% of the property is developed (subdivision and further development options are available) and even then, the structures are harmonious with the surrounding landscape. There are four move-in ready waterfront luxury treehouse units used for monthly retreat rentals. With these units in place, the land already has existing infrastructure, which is a huge step in making raw land inhabitable. For more details on the structures, please see MLS 20030589. On-site septic system and well water (pumping 10 gallons of water per minute) are in excellent working order. The land was once a tomato farm which still has great soil and irrigation ditches making this a perfect opportunity for private or commercial farming. Berkeley Electric currently provides the electricity, however, there is ample space and sunlight to convert the main power source to solar, creating a completely off-grid and self-contained enclave. Private drive is gravel with shellsand and requires light maintenance on an annual basis. Two heavy-duty shipping containers (402 & 202 in length) provide on-site storage. Two underground propane tanks, in good working order, provide gas for heating, lamps, outdoor cooking areas, etc. The potential for subdividing this large parcel into 8 lots with 16 dwelling units (for additional homes, rentals, or lot sales) is VERY rare on Wadmalaw Island and makes this parcel even more valuable. If development of the property isn't what you're after, the land would make a great retreat center or family compound, the possibilities are endless. Highly praised as being one of the best places in the South to visit for a restful retreat to get away from it all, this haven of rest and reconnection is THE PERFECT PLACE to keep your family safe during COVID-19 and political unrest. Tranquil setting, no neighbors, no noise, no crime. This stress-free paradise provides the perfect place to decompress, host family & friends, enjoy mild winters, and quarantine in the great outdoors. While being here makes you feel a world away, the varied offers of Charleston's fine-dining scene, beaches, international airport, entertainment, and cultural landmarks are just a short 30-minutes away. Charleston has been named the #1 City in America by Travel & Leisure for the past seven years and is known for its rich history, unique architecture, beautiful beaches, fantastic food, and more. This is one of the most unique and award-winning properties in the state. This listing is already priced to sell and will not last long in this competitive market where home values are rapidly increasing due to the flood of traffic from urban areas to rural settings like this that are second to none. Don't miss the opportunity to own Charleston's premier countryside escape!
