William Means Real Estate, one of the oldest real estate firms in the Charleston area and an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, will be representing home and lot sales in The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation on Johns Island. The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation is an exclusive neighborhood located on the original site of one of the oldest existing plantations in South Carolina. Fenwick Plantation has deep-rooted, centuries-old stories to tell of this picturesque Lowcountry setting.
“At The Preserve, new homes are nestled between the 1730 Fenwick Plantation manor house and Penny Creek,” said Drew Grossklaus, Sales Director and East Cooper Broker-in-Charge for William Means Real Estate. “The neighborhood design concept offers scenic views just minutes from everything Charleston has to offer including historic downtown, restaurants, beaches and the best hospitals in South Carolina.”
The vision of The Preserve is to be a community that protects and improves the Lowcountry while retaining the natural beauty of the neighborhood. New homes will complement and embrace the specific features and natural character of each homesite. The design concept is based upon integrating architecture with nature by being unobtrusive in form, texture, sheen, and color. A traffic light at the intersection of Maybank Highway and Fenwick Hall Allee has been wired and will be installed during the construction of the Northern Pitchfork Road, which is scheduled to start this year.
Chief Architect Marc Camens of Camens Architectural Group has been selected to oversee the design of the neighborhood’s custom homes. Established in 1982, their team includes some of the best residential architects in the industry that serve Charleston, Kiawah, the Coastal Carolinas, the Adirondacks and Vail, Colorado. With more than 20 years of experience in home construction, Equity Builders has been named as the preferred builder to work with new residents on each step of the construction process of their homes. Through their Quality Acceptance Program, project managers ensure everything runs smoothly during construction from choosing the homesite and floor plan to specific home feature selections at their Design Center.
The Preserve at Fenwick Plantation also offers:
Water Access. Marsh views and two community, deep water docks appeal to boaters and water-lovers. Residents also enjoy watching wildlife and sunsets, crabbing, fishing and kayaking on Penny Creek.
Amenities. In addition to deep water docks, The Preserve features a community gazebo, firepit, leisure trails, ponds and views of the marsh and Ravenel Bridge.
Green Space. The developers of this upscale neighborhood have intentionally left abundant green spaces throughout The Preserve that provide natural views and create privacy for residents.
History. Acquired by John Fenwick in 1721, Fenwick Hall (c. 1730) once encompassed over 4,500 acres, where rice and indigo were grown. The Fenwick Plantation was also the site of the famous horse farm, James Island Stud, which played a leading role in the introduction of English thoroughbred horses into the American South. The plantation was occupied by the British Army during the Revolutionary War, and the Union Army during the Civil War. During the Civil War, it was used as a hospital for both Union and Confederate soldiers and it is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
