Located within a private, riverside community of only 10 properties, 91 Headwaters Road is the ultimate Lowcountry escape with more May River and marsh frontage than any other property within Palmetto Bluff. This extraordinary 15.52-acre property includes a main house, guest house, and carriage house. Sweeping river and marsh views, a private lake along the property’s western edge, two-story dock, and a gated causeway entry make this one-of-a-kind residence feel like a private island, yet world class amenities are just a short drive away.

Three structures -- a 4,600 square-foot main residence, 2,600 square-foot guest house, and 1,400 square-foot carriage house -- are set across 2.5 acres, creating the “settlement area.” Each was thoughtfully designed to minimize scale and maximize privacy, natural light, breezes, and marsh views with the May River beyond. Old World touches such as exposed reclaimed beams blend seamlessly with classic Lowcountry elements such as oyster tabby, Savannah brick, and wide sitting porches.

Beyond thoughtful design, every aspect of planning and construction pays respect to the natural environment and habitat that surrounds the property. Superior construction and top-of-the-line materials were chosen for durability and sustainability. For example, the exterior walls are clad in organic tabby that blend quietly into the landscape. Other notable features throughout the property include geothermal heating and cooling systems, commercial grade metal roofing, and thoughtful landscaping.

A welcoming hand-made wrought iron gate anchors the gated, private drive. The three tabby-exterior residences complement the surrounding live oaks, palm trees, and mature landscaping. A private dock located at the end of the driveway on a large freshwater lake exclusively reserved for the owners of 91 Headwaters provides access to one of the most picturesque bodies of freshwater within Palmetto Bluff. Additionally, boating, kayaking, and fishing on Lake Haynes is exclusively reserved for Headwaters owners, as is access to the Lake House and Bunkie Guest Houses.

The main residence is located on the southeast portion of the property and is comprised of three bedrooms, four-and-a-half-bathrooms and an office/media room that could easily be converted to a fourth bedroom. Owners can access the home through an attached three-car garage with additional conditioned golf-cart space, screened-in porch, or through an impressive European-inspired courtyard. The stunning courtyard is an outdoor oasis . Flanked by citrus trees with a central fountain and lush landscaping, the courtyard offers numerous places to sit, relax, and enjoy the peaceful setting. Exquisite detailing on the interior of this home is evident in the beautiful entry, antique heart pine floors, vaulted living room ceilings with exposed, reclaimed wood beams, a custom bar made from antique wood from England, and custom walnut built-ins throughout. All of the primary living spaces offer river and marsh views and direct access to outdoor living areas.

A spacious gourmet kitchen is designed for entertaining with a large granite island, lounge area with fireplace, adjoining dining room, LaCornue French stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and butler’s pantry. A pair of primary suites each have ensuite gas fireplaces and bathrooms with walk-in showers, claw-foot tubs, and dual vanities. The downstairs master suite features a steam shower and sunroom that looks out across a tree-lined bluff, while the upstairs master suite offers a large screened-in porch, laundry room, and balcony doors off the bathroom that overlook the courtyard below. The entire home is handicap accessible with a centrally located elevator.

The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath guest house is situated on the northeastern portion of the property. The open plan features a large living room and kitchen, gas fireplace, and access to a screened-in back porch with May River views. The downstairs master bedroom provides a comfortable retreat for guests with a spacious bathroom including a walk-in shower, claw-foot tub, dual vanities, and granite countertops. Two ensuite guest rooms, one with a private balcony, are on the second level. Fine detailing such as antique heart pine floors, granite kitchen countertops, vaulted ceilings with reclaimed pine beams can be found throughout the guest house. A detached post and beam carport and garage allow for covered parking, a workshop, and storage for kayaks and canoes.

The quaint carriage house rests on the western portion of the property with a kitchen, living room, one bedroom, and one-and-a-half bathrooms above a sizable two-car garage. The garage is currently used as a conditioned fitness center. The carriage house is ideal for an office or art studio.

A private enclave of ten family compounds overlooking the beautiful May River, the gated Headwaters community is the ultimate location for privacy and seclusion. With more than 600 acres of scenic marshfront and maritime forest, these estate-sized homesites offer spectacular views and endless opportunities for creative home design. Boating, kayaking, and fishing on Lake Haynes as well access to the Lake House and Bunkie Guest Houses is exclusively reserved for Headwaters owners.
