Situated on one of the largest and most private lots on Ralston Creek, 358 Ralston Creek Street is reminiscent of the grandeur and classical appeal of historic homes in downtown Charleston but also offers stunning marsh, creek and river views and a convenient location on Daniel Island. The home was designed by award winning architect John Poole and built in 2006 by award-winning builder, Phillip Smith. The 6,440 square feet residence is richly detailed with only high-end appointments and filled with intricate details and finishes by some of the best craftsmen and artisans available, including breathtaking custom moldings, numerous built-ins with custom carvings, and beautifully hand-painted touches. A circular drive and well-maintained landscaped front lawn welcome you to the home, which was inspired by traditional Georgian architecture. The stately exterior boasts dual staircases that lead to the front entry portico, which is supported by columns and designed to complement the architecture and create a striking entrance. The roof is slate over the main body of the house and copper over the various porches. Waterfront Living Nestled along the banks of Ralston Creek, this exquisite home offers unending creek, river and marsh views. Here brilliant sunrises, cerulean skies, and moonlit evenings along the water's edge are part of every day's agenda. The private deepwater IPE dock offers easy access to the creek, Wando River, and Charleston harbor beyond, and is equipped with electricity and water. The wrap-around IPE deck encompasses a grilling area, an outdoor living room that is wired for an outdoor TV and has a fireplace, and space for dining al fresco. The charming courtyard garden and landscape design was inspired by the classic Charleston gardens found throughout historic downtown and creates a serene, peaceful haven that blends effortlessly into the Lowcountry's breathtaking beauty.
