Charleston County, South Carolina
It is rare to find a 330-acre farm with deep water frontage in the Lowcountry of South Carolina!
Little Edisto Farm is located on Edisto Island in Charleston County, South Carolina. The property offers 2,100 feet of frontage on scenic Highway 174, 1,300 feet of deep-water frontage on North Creek (Intracoastal Waterway), and Johassee Road runs along the eastern boundary. The tract is minutes from Edisto Beach and about an hour from historic downtown Charleston. Therefore, the location offers an unobstructed, twenty-minute boat ride to Bohicket Marina to the north and Edisto Marina to the south.
The property is currently used for hunting and recreation purposes only, and the main attraction is duck hunting. Of the 90 acres of duck impoundments, 46 are planted and high fenced. The remaining 44 acres are a brackish-water impoundment that is managed for natural vegetation. Historically, these areas provide excellent hunting opportunities for species such as Teal, Widgeon, Black ducks, Mottled ducks, Mallards, etc. Two deep-water wells flood the impoundments and ponds.
Approximately 20 acres of open fields form deep-water frontage on North Creek. As a result, the location is perfect for one to four home sites, each with minimal marsh crossings to reach deep water. In addition, a scenic causeway from Highway 174 provides the option for a private entrance to this area.
The balance of the property consists of pine plantations and wildlife plots, plus a pine and live oak hammock along the marsh edge. Additional features include four freshwater ponds, a tidal creek fed saltwater lagoon, and a controlled canal that floods the natural impoundment.
Little Edisto Farm is protected by a conservation easement with Edisto Island Open Land Trust. The easement promotes “the continuation of historic and traditional uses of the protected property as a family residential, recreational hunting and fishing retreat.” The easement grants permission for division into four parcels. We are happy to provide the document for your review.
From constructing a waterfront home to enjoying the property solely for recreational use, the farm offers endless possibilities. No matter how you prefer to use the land, the property presents unparalleled views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the ACE Basin.
