The Property

PRICE UPON REQUEST. For those looking for something special, this unique Property offers the opportunity to own an “island within an island.” Part of this estate’s 17-acre parcel is comprised of a private island,* featuring a 600-ft. dock leading to a covered boathouse with lift.

Located within Martins Point Plantation, a 900-acre waterfront community on Wadmalaw Island, the Property offers nearly 300 degrees of open water views. The island fronts the Wadmalaw River and Intracoastal Waterway, with the Atlantic Ocean accessible via a brief boat cruise. (Interesting fact: The “dream home” that was painstakingly built by the young Noah – Ryan Gosling’s lead character in the popular film The Notebook – is an actual residence located within Martins Point).

Although the Property is ready for development of a magnificent waterfront estate, it currently offers a beautiful, post-and-beam barn, which includes an upper guesthouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths.

Additional details on this unique Property are located within the Document Portal (above).

* – The “island” parcel is connected to the remainder of the Property via land-bridge.

The Community

MARTINS POINT PLANTATION, SC. In 1699, the Lord Proprietors of the Carolina colony granted 200 acres of land to a gunsmith, who sold it to the son of the Royal Governor of Carolina to augment his 2,700-acre plantation; in 1866, 1,200 acres of that land was purchased by a Georgia farmer and Martins Point was born. The original Plantation was a self-sufficient property at the center of Wadmalaw Island with its own stores, schools and currency. Even the Post Office and the telephone systems for the island were located at the Plantation.

In 1989, five partners banded together to purchase 900 acres of this beautiful property and have developed it into a peaceful retreat for a few lucky landowners. The entire community is protected by conservation easements to preserve both the look of the island and its current state as a rich wildlife habitat: three islands and a 20-acre pond are set aside as wildlife sanctuaries. Common areas include a private boat ramp, and miles of trails and sand shell roads to stroll and watch the incredible sunsets.

Wadmalaw Island, the location of this prestigious community, is southwest of Johns Island and nearly encircled by it. Bordered by one river and two creeks, the island is accessible via one bridge to the mainland. However, there is an active business and residential community here, including the Charleston Tea Plantation (the last remaining tea farm in America and the supplier of the official tea of the White House since 1987).

Water activities are popular here, and in addition to recreational sailing and boating, serious seafarers can participate in the famous Rockville Regatta, now in its 126th year. Of course, all boats are welcome to view the race, and locals often refer to the Regatta as “the world’s largest floating cocktail party.”

The Location

CHARLESTON, SC. Founded by the King of England via charter in 1663, besieged by the pirate Blackbeard, attacked by Sir Henry Clinton in the Revolutionary War, burned by Union forces in the Civil War, and now lauded as “America’s Most Friendly City”: Charleston has a long and storied past. An intriguing and charming mix of cultures combine with graceful live oaks and a stunning waterfront to make up this major tourist destination. Far from being lost in the past, however, many of the city’s historic buildings house thousands of information technology jobs as a result of the population embracing the next period in its history.

Shopping and dining opportunities abound, with family-owned retailers and some of the country’s best  chefs flocking to the area to take advantage of the heirloom ingredients available. “Lowcountry’” is the phrase used to describe the land and cuisine around Charleston, but the culture, architecture, and natural beauty of the land recently elevated Charleston to the number one slot in Travel + Leisure’s Best Cities in the World.
