We just received this amazing review--"This gorgeous property welcomes you with open interiors and so much natural light". What more can we say? But we also came upon this photo of a son-in-law leaping off the gazebo. Which is it? Welcoming peace or terrorizing leaps? This wonderful house has it all!
This is a fabulous house in a spectacular one and one half acre garden setting in Rockville on Wadmalaw Island, SC. It is a well loved family home that we have owned since 1986. Our children have learned to water ski, sail, crab, fish, swim and kayak right off of the convenient and charming deep water dock.
Peace and tranquility are apt descriptors but we have sons and grandsons who push the limits. The leap off the gazebo seems to be an obligatory rite of passage and a challenge to the next in line.
The house was built in the 1970's. It is on three levels but the middle floor is the main living floor with two large wings on each side with bedroom/bath (queen bed)guest room, and (king bed) in Master, each wing with walk in closets and with balconies The kitchen and great room with fireplace occupy the central part of the house and open onto a fabulous screened porch overlooking the dock, oak trees and the creek. The floors are heart pine. The walls are also pine. There is a loft overlooking the great room with a full bath and three single beds.
The great room has a glass top table that seats 8, a farm table that seats 8, a long counter that seats 8. On the screened porch there is another glass top table that seats 6.
Our crab pots are bringing in lots of crabs. Sitting at the counter with a pile of crabs and lots of newspaper is one of our favorite things. We have crab pots and a large pot in which to cook them.
On the ground level is a large room overlooking the creek with 2 queen beds, loveseat sofa and 2 chairs and stone fireplace. (Our photos do not show that we added a queen bed here.) It opens onto a smaller bedroom with queen bed. Each room has its own access to the shared bath. It can be used as a suite, or two separate bedrooms.
The house is easily shared by several couples either with children or without. The bedrooms are widely separated and each has its own bath.
The dock is great for boating, swimming or fishing/crabbing , and boating. It is a tidal creek and, as everywhere in the area, the currents are strong at mid-tide. The hour before and after high tide is the best time for swimming when the tide is still and the water high.
We have three Kayaks available for your use. Additional kayaks and boats can be rented at the Bohicket Marina. They also offer sunset cruises and nature tours or you can enjoy your own boat. Check the website for Bohicket Boat.
This is an ideal spot for family reunions and big birthday celebrations. It is also perfect for church retreats or for small business groups to problem solve and bond.
