Johns Island, a large barrier island separated from James Island and West Ashley by the Stono River, is one of Charleston’s quickly developing areas. Its location is convenient–just fifteen minutes from downtown Charleston, twenty minutes from the beaches and close to the resort islands of Kiawah and Seabrook. The island still has a lot of rural areas but you will find a number of local shops and restaurants, including community favorites like Wild Olive, Fat Hen and The Royal Tern.
4281 Wild Turkey Way
If you’re looking to build a waterfront home, Johns Island may be the perfect setting. Our first featured listing is located in Briar’s Creek, a gated golf course community that has only 85 homes on 900 acres of land. 4281 Wild Turkey Way is a 4.55 acre lot that leads to the community’s private lake. Mature trees, including live oaks, dot the property and the water views are expansive creating the perfect setting to build your dream home. The neighborhood has been thoughtfully designed and aligned with its natural setting, offering nature trails, an Audubon Signature Sanctuary, 65 acre freshwater stocked lake and a deep water community dock. There is also a renowned golf course and clubhouse, which can be joined for an additional fee. The location is also ideal–just a quick 10-15 minutes drive from Beachwalker Park and Freshfields Village. For more information on this lot, please contact listing agent Garrett Rust.
Our second listing is located at 5080 Chisolm Road. The property is twenty-five minutes from downtown Charleston, creating a perfectly peaceful setting while still being close to all that the city has to offer. The 2.81 acre lot abuts the New Cut section of the Stono River, offering easy access to the river and its surrounding waterways. There is 1.4 acres of high land, so you have plenty of room to build a sizable home (and pool or guest house) while still preserving much of the lot’s natural setting. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets while enjoying the local wildlife including coastal birds, dolphins and more. The owners have also obtained a dock permit.
