About 5150 Chisolm Road
Black Pond is a magnificent Georgian-style estate on two waterfront lots totaling 14-acres with breathtaking views of the waterway and marshes. A brick privacy gate leads through acres of spectacular oak trees laden with Spanish moss to the house. To the left of the house is a 2.3 acre saltwater pond, known locally as Black Pond, the namesake for the property. The house and the adjacent lot overlook both the pond and New Cut creek, and the lot offers 10 acres of forested privacy and a potential future site for a second home, guest house or pavilion. The outstanding quality of construction and materials used throughout the home is evident. The dramatic 2-story entrance provides an immediate spectacular view of the water and marshes and includes a beautifully designed circular staircaseThe floors throughout are recently refinished antique heart-pine sourced from an old southern home. The generously proportioned formal dining room is on the left and the solid mahogany-paneled library to the right of the foyer; both are designed with entertaining in mind. From the foyer there are panoramic views of the infinity pool and spa and New Cut Creek and the Intracoastal Waterway beyond.
Black Pond's design provides for maximum living flexibility. There are two separate main bedroom suites, one on each floor of the home; each with a full gourmet kitchen and living rooms. The downstairs living room is adjacent to a large family room and sun room and the downstairs kitchen, with Sub-Zero and Viking appliances. The upstairs living room is casual, and designed to be a secondary space for family gatherings and entertaining. Features include a stone hearth fireplace, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, antique pine cabinetry and a complete kitchen with Sub-Zero, Gaggenau and other high-end appliances. The upstairs porch has a 4-mile view of marsh and the area waterways and offers some of the Charleston area's finest uninterrupted views. Protected conservation properties in the area insure that the views remain pristine and unobscured.
The solid mahogany library serves as a bar, home office and game-room. From the foyer, there are hidden 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. 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
Outdoor living includes immaculate landscaping, generous outdoor entertainment, and dining and gathering spaces set around the infinity pool and spa. Features include a built in refrigerator, sink and large gas grill and a striking stone fireplace. It is a short walk to the boardwalk and dock with deep-water access (8' at low tide) on New Cut creek. Black Pond is the last deep-water dock on New Cut creek, with relatively little boat traffic and perfect for water sports. The dock was originally built to be shared, with a 45' floating dock, but it is now exclusive to Black Pond. The property is a birder's paradise, and the saltwater pond offers fishing for Red Drum, Black Drum, Sea Trout, Flounder and numerous other saltwater species, while deer, turkey and other wildlife frequent the woods.
Chisolm Road is a quiet road on Johns Island, but just 16 miles from the Charleston peninsula, and minutes from the nearest dining and shopping on Maybank Highway.
Black Pond offers deep-water access and beautiful views with modern conveniences and classic Lowcountry charm.
