This custom-built Low Country 'forever home' overlooking pond and marsh is just off the Wando River and overflowing with high end finishes in exclusive and gated Dunes West. These owners left no detail to chance, from the metal roof, elevator servicing all floors, 'topped' oversized gutters, easy-to-deploy hurricane shutters and 4 porches featuring low maintenance Trexx and Sealoflex surfaces it exudes southern charm complete with that Charleston feel. The 4 covered porches (plus 1 covered patio on the ground level) allow owners to rock the day away with river breezes that never disappoint. As you enter the home you're greeted with a beautiful wainscot foyer and staircase as well as rich, 5'' plank oak floors throughout the home. The foyer is flanked on one side by French doors to theoffice (or 5th bedroom) and the other side with the formal dining room. Pass through the foyer to see a tucked-away staircase to the drive-under garage and a 1/2 bath. Then enter the large family room and kitchen with natural light streaming in from oversized patio doors and large windows. The family room includes a built-in entertainment center that will host a 65" tv and storage galore, a gas, one-button, fireplace with custom mantel, and a Charleston Brick hearth. The kitchen features a family-style built-in banquette, farmhouse apron sink, Thermador Pro appliances to include separate refrigerator and freezer 'columns' and dishwasher which are all integrated into the cabinetry. The 36" gas cooktop and commercial vent are tucked into a build matching the fireplace mantel and feature glass shelving to display all your oils and spices. And don't forget the pot filler and matching built-in oven and microwave. The oversized marble-topped island with prep sink is brimming with storage and pull-outs for the rest of those pesky counter appliances! And all those many drawers are full-extension and doors are soft close! Around the corner to the walk-in pantry you'll find unique adjustable shelving clear to the ceiling and for the coffee connoisseur where there is plumbing for up to 2 built-in coffeemakers or under-counter ice maker. The family room has 2 space-saving pocket doors that lead to the elevator and a small hallway back to the office with a room (currently used for storage) that is already 'prepped with plumbing and electrical' for another 'full bath'. Go out onto the porch and discover the Trexx deck with granite counters and built-in stainless steel gas grill, complete with rotisserie. Back to the foyer and up the stairs, you'll find the elevator nook and then the master bedroom tucked away with an entry complete with coffee nook (plus water hookup) for your first morning cup, a huge walk-in closet and entrance to the back porch. The master bath with custom cabinetry and jacuzzi tub are all topped with honed marble and the shower is finished with beveled subway tile and marble accents. The 3 guest bedrooms each have ensuite baths with all honed granite vanities, custom cabinets and subway tiled bathing areas. The rear bedroom also has an access to the back porch. The front porch is accessed through a door off the main upper hall. The laundry room on the upper hallway is conveniently located near the bedrooms and has a pedestal for front load washer/dryer combo and honed granite countertop with sink, shelving for storage, as well as cabinet for 'whole house structured wiring' and a breaker panel. The home is built with all 8' doors and windows. Interior doors are solid core to buffer sound and exterior doors are fiberglass that will never rust. You name it, this home has it! The owners left nothing out when building this forever home!
**Of special note are the many space-saving pocket doors, hand showers and hidden nooks in all bathing areas, switches and receptacles throughout are equipped with dimmers, timers for bath vents, fan controls (no chains!) and plenty of USB plugs for todays charging needs. The house has speakers on both back porches (and master bath and kitchen) surround sound in the family room and the dining room and office are also 'wired' for the same system. All bedrooms and office/bedroom are wired for cable, ethernet and intercom system. House is wired for security (motion sensors and cameras) and is currently using a CPI panel that is easily controlled with a phone app. The master has insulation from the sounds below in the family room. The interior elevator doors have 'drop down' door sweeps to control any drafts that might come from the shaft. On the ground floor is a large, three car garage with separate bays, elevator access and plenty of storage space. And already in place is a panel to add a switch for a whole house generator. The yard has an irrigation system and the front and back rear porches having a 'zone' for watering potted plants. The current panel even has extra zones for additional watering needs. Topping it off are the removable polycarbonate panels in the garage to keep the pollen from settling on your cars!
