About 4799 Retriever Road

Located 18 miles south of historic Charleston, this private 27-acre deepwater estate on Wadmalaw Island is a hidden gem and provides Lowcountry waterfront living at its finest. Designed by Bill Huey and skillfully built by Daly & Sawyer in 2019, the main house is an approximately 4,562 square foot architectural masterpiece, showcasing how indoor spaces cleverly blend with amazing views and natural light while seamlessly transitioning to outdoor living.The two-and-a-half-story home offers five bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and two half bathrooms, with the master bedroom located on the first floor. The first-floor open plan with high ceilings allows ample room to entertain both family and guests. Notable indoor features include six-inch oak floors, coffered ceilings, custom millwork and built-in cabinetry, shiplap wall trim, two wood-burning fireplaces, a workout room, and plenty of extra storage. The chef-worthy kitchen boasts a Wolf six-burner gas cooktop and oven, sub-zero refrigerator, and stainless climate-controlled wine cooler. Dual islands allow for maximum prep space without sacrificing seating. A marble countertop island with farm sink and generous storage provides stylish function, while the second island can seat eight. Brick patios are located on the front and back of the home, and there is a beautiful, bluestone screen porch with seating, an outdoor grill, and a fireplace. Custom electric screens on the porch will operate with the push of a remote-control key fob. Just outside the main home is a deep saltwater pool surrounded by bluestone, a pool cabana, and a fireplace perfect for entertaining. A short deepwater dock with a 30ft floater and a 16,000 lb boat lift gives the owner easy access to Bohicket Creek, which leads directly to the Atlantic Ocean. There is around 10 feet+ of water at low tide on the outside floater, accommodating larger boats with deeper drafts. Dock upgrades include power, water, and lighting. Adjacent to the pool is the approximately 2,359 square foot three bedroom and three-and-a-half-bathroom guest house built in 2004, perfect for friends and family. It has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a downstairs master bedroom, with two bedrooms, and two bathrooms on the second floor. A custom bar with shelving sits just off the living room. There is a Reverse Osmosis water filtration system that services all dwellings and a Generac generator is installed next to the main home. A Sonos system coordinates audio/visuals inside, and the grounds include outdoor lighting and irrigation. The current owner has planted over 170 trees and bushes, which have enhanced the beauty of this amazing estate. Tree species include Red Oak, Live Oak, Magnolias, Loblolly Pine, and Holly. In addition, there are two stocked freshwater ponds on the property and a private, electric entrance gate. If you are looking for a luxurious and secluded deepwater estate, you do not want to miss seeing this! Showing by appointment only.
