Consider this stately, newer, custom–built, marsh-front home located on private Gull Point Road in the South Beach neighborhood of Sea Pines Plantation.
Situated on an oversized homesite with broad and long views over the tidal marsh and out to South Beach Village, this elevated home boasts quality construction throughout – from its Savannah Brick front entry to its soaring ceilings to its detailed custom woodwork – no appointment was overlooked in the construction and fine-finishes of this beautiful home.
A brick-lined concrete driveway accesses the property at the front right of the large homesite, which is appointed with mature, manicured landscaping and quintessential palm and live oak trees. The drive provides access to a side-entry 3-car garage, while creating guest parking space as well. A brick and concrete walkway stems off the driveway and winds through the front yard, leading to the Savannah Brick front entry steps, which are flanked by wrought iron railings that ascend to the covered front entry porch.
Twin 8′ leaded-glass and wood entry doors greet you as they open into the home’s open, light/bright foyer. The formal living room is located straight ahead of the foyer entry as it enjoys a wall of glass from floor to ceiling to draw-in the spectacular marsh views at the back of the property. The living room features a tall-height coffered ceiling, custom molding, twin sets of built-in bookcases and cabinets, and a tile–surround gas fireplace with custom wood mantle. Twin sliding glass doors open out to the home’s spacious back deck, featuring ample room for sitting and outdoor dining as well as a convenient set of stairs leading down to the private pool deck.
In the spirit of casual, Island-living, the home features a popular kitchen/family/breakfast room space, located just off the formal living room. This generous and open space enjoys a continuation of hardwood flooring, soaring smooth–finish ceiling with twin paddle fans, recessed lighting, and a wall of windows for dramatic marsh views. The kitchen features a full complement of appliances including a GE Monogram fridge/freezer, GE Profile smooth-finish stovetop with GE Profile downdraft vent, GE double wall oven, GE Profile dishwasher, GE Profile microwave, and a Marvel stainless steel wine fridge.
Just off the breakfast room is the home’s screen porch, complete with brick–finished flooring, panel ceiling with twin skylights, overhead ceiling fan, and a screen door access to stairs leading down to the home’s pool deck. The home’s private pool is a kidney shape design with a charming waterfall feature, integrated steps and benches, and generous cool-decking on either end, ideal for sunbathing and casual dining. The marsh beyond provides convenient kayaking fun, right from the rear yard of the house.
The master suite is located on the opposite end of the first floor from the kitchen/family room, and enjoys high-end carpeting, an architectural box-tray ceiling with multi-piece crown molding, floor-to-ceiling windows with custom draperies, and a private access to the back deck. The oversized master bathroom is finished with 12″ tumbled-edge ceramic tile flooring, custom cabinetry with dual vanity sinks, built-in wall mirror, large custom-tile walk-in shower, separate Jacuzzi tub, and a private water closet. The master suite is completed with a large walk-in closet, built-in shelving and cabinetry, and a lockable second owners’ closet.
The first floor also plays host to a handsome den/office with a fireplace and custom stained-wood trim-work, 2 powder rooms, a coat closet, a pantry closet, 2 storage closets, a dedicated laundry room with built-in ironing board/full-size laundry machines/utility sink, and convenient direct access to the three car garage below.
The home’s second master/in-law suite is privately located on a split second level, complete with its own sitting room, large walk-in closets, spacious bedroom with high-end carpeting, custom molding, and multiple windows.
The suite is completed with a lavish bath with 12″ tumbled-edge ceramic tile flooring, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, cultured marble double vanity with fixed pane mirrors, and an overhead skylight for natural lighting.
A beautiful set of hardwood-finished stairs leads to the second floor, appointed with turned–spindle handrail, wainscoting, sconce lighting, and an overhead skylight. The second floor greets you with a light and bright, carpet-finished hallway, providing access to three bedrooms on this upper level. The first guest suite is oversized, enjoying three windows, cathedral ceiling with overhead fan, private closet, and private access to the large bathroom. The bath features ceramic tile flooring, cultured marble double vanity, large fixed pane mirrors, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and overhead skylight.
