Just 15 minutes from bustling downtown Charleston, 3072 Bohicket Road – affectionately named Lone Chimney Farm – boasts southern charm and modern splendor. Situated in the countryside of Johns Island, this property is made for enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
With living areas spread across the farmhouse-style main home and the separate apartment, this is a dreamy family abode. Designed by American Vernacular and constructed by Tupper Builders in 2019, the attention to detail throughout is evident. The 3,710-sq-ft main house comprises three bedrooms and offers breathtaking views of Bohicket Creek.
Entering through the front door, the lofty 12-ft ceilings make the home feel extremely spacious and inviting. The footprint is open plan, with striking walnut flooring to tie all the spaces on this level together. To the left is the kitchen which has been finished with custom cabinetry and a standout navy blue La Cornue Range. Other features include a SubZero refrigerator and freezer and an 11-ft island with seating for six – the perfect place to host dinner parties.
There is a casual dining area within the kitchen with seating for up to eight. Or, for a more formal affair, a separate dining room can be found next to the kitchen. Behind, a butler’s pantry features a Wolf wall oven and a Thermador wine cooler, as well as plenty of prep space.
On the main floor, there are also two offices with custom cabinetry, with potential to turn one into an extra bedroom. A unique feature in the home is the dog room with wash tub, meaning your furry family members are well taken care of (while ensuring your home stays mud-free). Upstairs, oak flooring gives a luxurious feel and the three generous double bedrooms all have beautiful views.
As well as the main home, there is a garage that can accommodate up to eight cars. Above, a 1,200-sq-ft two-bedroom two-bathroom guest apartment provides an ideal space for visiting friends and family or for use as staff accommodation.
The star of the show, however, is the expansive outdoor space – 13 acres to be precise. There is a screened porch which boasts a fireplace, TV, Sonos sound system (also found throughout the home) and propane hookup for a grill.
A large fenced-in vegetable and flower garden allows future homeowners a reprieve from modern stresses, and a stone fire pit and seating area are perfect for retiring to in the evenings. But, for boating aficionados, the draw will undoubtedly be the boardwalk which leads to a floating dock with a covered pier head.
Throughout the property, there are several examples of repurposing historic materials. During construction, a chimney and bricks that were over 150 years old were discovered. Repurposing the bricks to fix the chimney, it was positioned in pride of place out front and earned the home its moniker. Another example is the vanity in the powder room, repurposed from a 100-year-old barn nearby.
