In the South Carolina low country, situated between the Kiawah River, salt-water marshes, and winding creeks, is the extremely private estate at No. 1 Captain Maynards Island. The weathered-wood exterior hides a thoroughly modern interior, with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and hardwood floors. For enjoying all the surrounding nature, the residence has a huge screened porch (2,049 square feet), with its own vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, and rockers that look out onto trees draped in Spanish moss.
