About 120 Oaks Plantation Rd.

Situated on one of the highest points of Historic Saint Helena and just over the bridge from Lady’s Island lies an unparalleled 76 acre estate for those seeking privacy, acreage and long views across the low country marsh. Upon approach, the stately French Country Style home reveals itself from Live oak lined driveway as it winds around the spring fed pond, instantly settling the mind and spirit. Remarkably from start to finish, this 10,000+ square feet of living space was completed within 18 months. Meandering through lush landscaping to the front entry way, it is evident that this estate was designed for entertaining and respite. The elegant entrance opens into long, wide and unobstructed hallways drawing delighted guests into bright and grand living spaces. The library and office are located just off the grand hallway providing more intimate space to indulge in reading, relaxing and entertaining smaller gatherings.

Each room has it’s own unique character providing endless ideas for all manner of entertaining. In the main house, there are 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 3 powder rooms with 17 thermostats zones serving the main house which can be controlled remotely.

The Sun Room and wet bar located in the west wing of the home, captures the expansive lawn views and marshes beyond and is most ideal for watching sunsets and the low country wildlife.

The East wing serves as the heart of the home where the kitchen, den, wine cellar and fitness facility are located. The kitchen’s attributes include high counter tops for ease with prep work, double Viking convection ovens, Viking Professional 4 burner stove with griddle, Kitchenaide Refrigerator, Scotsman Ice Machine, and two Swedish Asko Dishwashers. Off the kitchen between the dining room and kitchen is a Butler’s galley serving as either a catering kitchen or gardening space with ample storage for linens, china and crystal within the custom cabinetry.

Counterpart to the kitchen area are the pantry and laundry facilities with additional freezer and refrigerator space, wine cellar and fitness room. Also connecting directly to the kitchen is a cozy den complimented by one of 7 fireplaces.

Meticulous thought and craftsmanship went into the home as evidenced by the custom millwork, Plantation Shutters, pocket sliding screen doors, exterior hurricane shutters and sinker heart of pine flooring. A grand stair case in the central hallway is complimented by an Italian wrought iron railing which leads to the second level and it’s four en suite bedrooms. Each bedroom provides unique views to the outside and are zoned to allow guests to choose their ideal climate. A butler’s stairwell allows for discreet movement between the two stories and more direct access to the kitchen facilities below.

A three car garage, caretaker’s quarters with a full and half bath and utility area allows for system control around the clock. A generator is hard wired to the entire complex and capable of running the major systems for comfort during a power outage. Also in place are a Culligan filtration system and an industrial looping hot water system as additional notable features.

The grounds surrounding the home have been maintained as a natural Maritime Forest for years and could be crafted by the new owners for Timber, Equestrian opportunities or Farming. There are no conservation easements in place at this time providing an excellent incentive for the new owners to protect this special legacy estate in perpetuity while capturing tax benefits at the same time.
