Today’s estate is the most recently constructed home on the market in Rose Hill Plantation, a private, gated golf & equestrian community in Bluffton, South Carolina.

At the end of a long, winding driveway, illuminated by gas lanterns and hugged by live oaks dripping with Spanish moss, the private estate rest on almost three acres in the heart of the Lowcountry.

Built in 2006, the move-in ready home has expansive rooms flooded with natural light, dramatic high ceilings in every area and heart pine floors throughout. The 5,200 square foot home features four bedrooms, an office and large bonus room. This double height ‘central’ formal living room is the first room you walk into upon entering the home and is visually connected to the private screened lanai and pool area. A whitewashed brick gas fireplace anchors the room.

The formal dining room features triple radius windows which overlook the live oaks and paddocks which bring a softness to the area.The family room features a rough-edged pine ceiling crafted from this exact property by the original owner, whose grandfather once owned the land.

The spacious Chef’s kitchen, connecting the formal areas to the casual, features all Viking appliances, a large center island, custom cabinetry, and was recently painted. Designed for entertaining, the owners added a lanai with a heated pool, spa, fireplace and outdoor kitchen/bar with leathered granite counters.

A grand entryway welcomes you into the master suite which offers loads of natural light and private access through French doors to the lanai. An expansive master bath has separate closet, vanities, a jetted tub, walk-in shower, and private water. The second floor features a loft area, perfect for relaxing with a book, access to the balcony overlooking polo fields, three guest suites and a large bonus room.

The property also has a two-stall barn with a tack room and storage which is surrounded by shaded paddocks. Over 17 miles of riding trails can be accessed through the backyard and the 65 acre Rose Hill Equestrian Center is found across the street.

This home is listed for $1.295 million with Weichert Coastal Properties and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
