Brick Church Farm is an ultra-private 18-arce equestrian estate nestled within the Francis Marion National Forest just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. Named after a nearby 17th century parish church, the property is surrounded on all sides by protected woodlands and abundant wildlife. This unique farm offers unmatched privacy, protection from future development, close proximity to Charleston, Mt. Pleasant and the beaches, and is a turnkey opportunity for it's future owner.The two main horse barns collectively offer 24 12ft x 12ft stalls with tack rooms, wash stall, and two additional 24ft x 20ft oversize stalls. Above the secondary barn is a two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment. The farm's main house is set privately away from the barns, situated under a beautiful oak canopy. A country-style 120ft wrap around screen porch offers beautiful views of the barns, pastures, and ponds (which are stocked with bass, bluegill, and shellcrackers). The home itself features vaulted timber frame cathedral ceilings accentuated by 5" red oak plank floors and custom cedar cabinetry. Featuring 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, and over 3,500 square feet of space, this one-of-a-kind residence is ready to make memories that will last a lifetime. Fields and pastures are separated by traditional black Kentucky style 3-plank oak fencing that creates easy and safe access to the multiple pastures and paddocks. The farm has multiple riding areas including a traditional turf riding area, hedge ring with multiple jumps and features, surrounded by the lake. It enjoys direct access to the public trails and roads of the national forest for a relaxed hack. Stalls are equipped with rubber mats, an automated watering system, timer-controlled fly spray system, and overhead breezeway for easy feeding. Construction and location were carefully considered in regard to ventilation and airflow, in order to stabilize barn temperature and maximize the afternoon sea breeze. A third barn with two additional 12x12 stalls sits adjacent to fenced pasture for an easy run-in. With close proximity to historic downtown Charleston, high caliber school systems, and beautiful beaches, the farm is extremely private, but also convenient to America's favorite city. The equestrian competition centers of Aiken, Camden, Tryon, Ocala, and Landrum are also just a short drive away, making this a central location for the modern horseman.
