388 RALSTON CREEK STREET | Daniel Island Park
With enviable outdoor living spaces, a private deepwater dock, and an expertly designed interior, this custom-built home at 388 Ralston Creek Street in Daniel Island Park is a truly magnificent property with no detail left untouched.
Sitting on tree-lined Ralston Creek Street, one of Charleston’s most prestigious streets, its handmade Old Carolina brick exterior, copper roof and verdant landscaping create a classic and stately facade. The backyard was designed for entertaining with a saltwater infinity pool, pergola-covered hot tub, fire pit and covered porch. There is also a pool house pavilion, complete with a grill, fireplace, 50” flat screen TV, granite-topped bar with two Sub-Zero refrigerators and a poolside bathroom. The gorgeous, wide, meticulously landscaped lot was designed by landscape architect Robert Chestnut with beautiful gardens, open lawn areas, brick-lined pathways and lighting. A short private dock, with water and power, extends into Ralston Creek so you can easily explore the surrounding waterways.
Inside, the floor plan is light-filled and flowing, with elegant finishes at every turn. Custom Wenge wood floors and custom-milled trim, designed and milled by Herbert DeCosta, a renowned Charleston architect, are found throughout the home, along with marble and designer stone and tile. A floating staircase with Italian balusters defines the entry foyer and transitions into the living room which showcases expansive views of the creek. The chef’s kitchen has top-of-the-line finishes including custom cabinets, limestone counters, a copper farmhouse sink and high-end appliances including dual Sub Zero refrigerators and a Viking range with two ovens. There is a sizable dining space adjacent to the kitchen along with a sitting area that is anchored by a fireplace and built-in bookshelves, creating a great setup for everyday living or entertaining. There is also a separate dining room for more formal gatherings with a local artist’s mural of Charleston’s Lowcountry on the walls.
The master bedroom is also located on the first floor. It offers access to the backyard along with two walk-in closets, a private laundry room, a fireplace and an elegant en suite bath with marble counters, soaking tub, marble shower and custom vanity. On the second floor of the home are three additional bedroom suites–each with access to a bluestone and brick covered porch overlooking the creek. An handsome, wood-lined office is also on this floor along with a secondary laundry room. The third floor has been converted into a home gym and there is also a media room off of the kitchen. You’ll also enjoy two covered grills, an outdoor shower tastefully incorporated amongst the landscaping with views of the Wando River and a three car garage.
The Daniel Island Club offers members two private golf courses, an amazing pool, a health and tennis club, dining facilities and more. A deeded, non recallable golf membership can be purchased with the property. Daniel Island is a thriving community with lots to do throughout the year including the Volvo Car Open tennis tournament, professional club soccer team Charleston Battery, concerts and more.
