Come home to 31 Middleton Gardens, where nature inspires from every view.

Designed and oriented to optimize the natural landscape of this particularly special piece of land, enjoy sweeping vistas through a rear elevation that is nearly all glass, inviting the unobstructed tidal marsh and river views so prized in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Fish, crab & kayak right from your private dock, or relax by the sparkling free-form pool, complete with spa and dedicated pool bath. And what better place to enjoy morning coffee than from the warm spa, preparing your muscles for the day as the sun rises over the marsh.

Designed by award-winning, beloved local architect John Pittman, under the watchful guidance of a Master Naturalist, 31 Middleton Gardens is a home for those dedicated to nature and the art of living. Bathed in a blanket of natural light throughout, this home is a place of peace and tranquility. The zen fountain -- a custom installation designed in the home's palm frond motif -- greets you such that your cares cannot cross the threshold. A generous back porch and lawn are perfect for the gardener, particularly one who loves to cook -- walk right through the several sliding glass doors into the amazing chef's kitchen. And don't forget to look up: The barrel ceiling becomes a blanket of stars at the flip of a switch.

Whimsy and a zest for life lives here. It is a home that is meant to be both admired and lived in. Gallery walls with a base height of 12 feet allow for abundant art display and collection. The gorgeous paneled conical ceilings so indicative of Pittman's presence offer a touch of warmth and an organic element, playing beautifully with the beautiful Walnut floors throughout. Five bedrooms adorn this property, one of which presently serves as an office/library, and another which serves as a flexible hobby and screening room.

We don't always mention the storage, but here, we simply cannot go without it. With one of the only "basements" in the Lowcountry, spanning the entire footprint of the home and largely climate-controlled, you will be in no need for more space.

Nestled into a quiet cul-de-sac in the world-class private community of Colleton River Club, enjoy the serenity of a peaceful peninsula location where time seems to stand still, while in truth being only minutes from all the Club's wonderful amenities. Here, it's all about enjoying the beauty and bounty of nature in the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Of course, no discussion of Colleton River Club is complete without paying due reverence to its exceptional golf. The quality and play of the two championship courses -- one designed by Jack Nicklaus, the other by Pete Dye -- is matched only by their breathtaking beauty. Rounding out the golf offerings are the Borland 9-hole par 3 course, an exceptional practice facility, and a fully outfitted pro shop that will suit any need.

And while the golf here is in a league of its own, Colleton offers so much more. Grab a match at any level at the Stan Smith Tennis Center, relax by the beautiful pool, enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and several wonderful dining options all within the gates. When it's time to wind down, hop on your golf cart and head to the community dock, set along the banks of the sparkling river for which the community is named. Once there, enjoy the stunning breezes and sunset over a cocktail with friends. And if you're feeling adventurous, a paddle or kayak excursion is just steps away.

No matter your fancy, Colleton River Club offers a best-in-class opportunity to enjoy it. As an exclusive private club, membership at Colleton conveys with ownership, providing a natural limitation on amenity pressure. With no short-term rentals allowed in the neighborhood, it is truly a residential paradise, where a collection of friends awaits your arrival.
