In this architectural delight, the builder seamlessly melded the best of British West Indies architecture with local seaside influences to create a spectacular home that is as unique as it is beautiful. This sumptuously designer-decorated fourth row ocean home reveals quality finishes that recall old-world charm throughout.
Live your dream in this premier custom home—a mere ninety-second stroll from the most beautiful beach on the island. When you walk back from the beach down the quiet lane, you will want to relax on the totally private deck and enjoy the heated pool and spa.
Enveloped in palms and lush island greenery unique to the low country, this comfortable 5-bedroom home offers easy living and an inspired lifestyle. You will discover relaxed luxury with high-end finishes and exceptional details in every room.
As you enter, you are welcomed by the nautically inspired, curved wood ceiling in the open foyer along with one-of-a-kind custom designed moldings, and rich hardwood floors that stretch throughout most of the home.
Coved and beamed ceilings and arches, European appeal, and attention to every architectural detail accentuate this home with a captivating sense of relaxed elegance.
Enjoy romantic evenings before the stone fireplace with media center. Here the beamed ceilings and open floor plan lead the eye to views of the deck and private pool area.
Guests easily move between the gourmet kitchen, family room and outdoor area. The thoughtful open floor plan fosters easy flow between the spacious great room, dining room and wine bar with mini-fridge and icemaker.
Just past the dining area with massive table for ten, guests can wander into the chef’s kitchen and enjoy the show. This beautiful kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel, double ovens, designer cabinets, with a custom French country finish. The generous breakfast bar and center island are topped with wide granite counters. The seashell drawer fronts will delight your eyes along with lighted display cabinets. The kitchen includes a new gas burner stove top, two ovens, dishwasher, lots of easy-pull drawers and pantry shelving, all showcased in this spectacular kitchen area that begs you to entertain.
The two master bedroom suites are on the main level, both designed with rich antique cabinet treatments. The main master bedroom is a remarkable oasis with an overhead, oversized mahogany fan inset into the recessed ceiling. This room boasts a luxury master bath that is one of island’s most striking, with dramatic island ceiling fan, overhead lighted display, large walk-in shower with gilded tiles, recessed laundry storage, a large jet tub, and walk-in closet. Ample storage is offered in the matching sinks with custom-fit antique storage beneath, and a wrought-iron gated linen closet.
Off the main master bedroom you will discover a one-of-a-kind railing and wide staircase, continuing the nautical theme and crowned with custom ironwork and a whimsical South Seas’ chandelier. At the top rests a secluded private office with Tommy Bahama treatments and windows on three sides—overlooking palm trees and pool.
A separate staircase off the living area leads to three additional upstairs bedrooms, each with private bath and antique custom vanities. Two of the bedrooms have double French doors to small porches overlooking the pool. All three have unique furnishings.
The materials on the exterior of the home are well chosen for the island look and for durability. The house is topped with an industrial-strength metal roof, making maintenance a breeze. The first level garage provides enough space to park four cars and ocean toys. Space has also been created for the shaft of a future three-level elevator.
The home is a timeless masterpiece—and just three houses away from sandy beaches with dolphins playing in the sparkling waters. It’s mere steps from miles of tree-lined bike paths and every imaginable resort amenity on the island, and this Forest Beach area is just a half-mile from Coligny shopping and restaurants.
