Amazing Angel Oak & park (1500 year old living oak tree is close by (the oldest living thing east of the Rocky Mountains). Kiawah & Seabrook Islands & public ocean beaches only 12 minutes down the road; 3 minutes from the Intra-Coastal Waterway & river boating, fishing, crabbing, etc. Johns Island is a wooded barrier island covered with a maritime forest, with lots of creeks, streams, ponds & marshes. Abundant wildlife include all manner of marsh birds, duck, geese, peacock, hawks & ospreys, deer, wild hog & turkey, bobcat, etc. Many horse farms & stables (Johns Island is a "horsey" place). It is still heavily populated with vegetable & fruit farms which are a plentiful source of fresh fruits & vegetables. No road on the island is wider than 2 lanes, many of them beautifully covered with over-arching canopies of ancient oak trees strewn with hanging moss. The wide beach on Kiawah Island stretches uninterruptedly for 9 full miles, all freely accessible through the local county park (charge for parking only). Constructed to be green & energy efficient, 8"-thick wood logs have a high natural R-value in insulation, complimented by double glazed thermal windows, steel roof, gas stove & tankless instant hot water system (8 gal./min.). The result is the house is cool in summer, warm in winter, & heats water only as needed! It consumes less energy & costs less to operate than comparable houses in the area. It uses less than 1/2 the electricity as the neighbors & consumes less than 300 gal./yr. of LPG (150 gal. buried gas tank). The log house is heavy & solidly built w/ foundations on thick continuous footers, ensuring strength+solidity. It is fully strapped from foundation to roof, bracketed & bolted every 18 inches to solid stem-walls, & with a steel roof, it is built to withstand hurricane & earthquake. Added to all that is the ambiance of log-home living, bright with the light of large windows & French doors opening on the front deck. Woodsy atmosphere, yet only 23 mins. from downtown Charleston, 12 mins. from Kiawah beach, & 5 mins. from fishing & boating on the Stono River. Deer & wild turkey abound. Very modern kitchen, lots of granite counter space & solid wood cabinets (lit from above & below). Dual zone air conditioning/heating for separate control upstairs & down. Crane water filtration & softening system produces 1.5 gal./min. (expandable to 3 gal. or more), with water tank (1,010 gal. capacity) located in water shed. The filtered & softened well water is more delicious than bottled water, & is smooth & soothing to the skin in the bath & shower. The master bedroom suite w/ large walk-in closet is located on the first floor, north side, & it is naturally cooler in the warm weather. The master bath is bright with light from its bay-window alcove (with whirlpool tub built into a tile-lined deck), glass & brass shower. In its style, proportions, construction & location, the house appeals to our sense of elegance & modernity, while still satisfying a desire for the traditional ambiance of log homes without being overly rusticated or feeling lost in the woods.
