This exquisitely built custom home is a Lowcountry gem. Situated on the marshes of Hobcaw Creek on a high and pie-shaped lot, this home takes advantage of the views, breezes, southern exposure and privacy. The yard was designed and installed by renowned landscape designer Sheila Wertimer. The curved drive and Japanese maples frame the front entry of this handsome home. There is a separate 2 car garage/carriage house just steps away and conveniently located to the main house. Upon entering, you immediately feel at home and can see the quality and craftsmanship. The first floor has 12 foot ceilings with recovered beams from the upstate. Custom designed millwork includes shiplap siding on the walls and stairwell and cove molding. Custom kitchen cabinets made by Disher Cabinets.
There is a beautiful and subtle mural of the low country in the foyer to welcome you. The handsome study and cozy dining room flank the foyer. Beyond the foyer is a large room with the recovered beams from the upstate and a fireplace of old Charleston brick that anchors the room. Three mahogany french doors lead to the oversized porch, which is 40' X12', with high ceilings that are perfect for entertaining, relaxing and outdoor dining. The morning sun comes up on the back of the house and makes the porch a delightful spot to enjoy morning coffee and hot afternoon days. The kitchen is a cook's delight with high-end appliances including a restaurant grade hood over Wolfe 6 burner range, center island and marble countertops. There is a pantry and small office off of the kitchen. Enjoy first floor living with the master bedroom suite downstairs which also has outside access to the back porch. The master bath is appointed with a large walk-in shower (space if you would like to have tub) and oversized walk-in closet with washer and dryer.
A sunny staircase leads you to the 2nd floor with 10 foot ceilings where you will find a great family living space. There is an oversized flex space that may be used as a craft or exercise room, which incorporates laundry, a wall of cabinets for storage and a full size sink. Two ample sized bedrooms on the front of the house have a shared bath. There is an upstairs master bedroom option with walk-in closet, storage room and oversized bath.
A 5th bedroom with full bath is located in the detached carriage house which has a marsh view. There are expansive marsh views and southern exposure on the back of the home for plenty of natural light.
