Welcome to this truly unique, Georgian-inspired custom residence on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), just outside of the Charleston Harbor and a short walking distance to the historic Country Club of Charleston. You will not find a "Charleston address" home anywhere else in the area that boasts this dock space and convenience to all the entertainment venues, retail shops, and dining establishments in downtown Charleston. Social gatherings and fishing adventures are limitless from the home's outdoor oasis. Bordered by majestic live oaks, the backyard features an infinity saltwater pool surrounded by a travertine deck imported from Turkey, a natural gas heated jacuzzi, a gazebo with a full radius ceiling, two Lynx outdoor grills, a stainless steel refrigerator, full outdoor bathroom, and an audio/video system with television. The rear of the home also features a spacious covered deck formed in concrete and stucco and a completely fenced backyard. An elevated upper deck formed of concrete and travertine serves guest bedrooms and an upper family room, providing more amazing waterfront views for family and guests. Built in 2013, this fabulous home sits splendidly on a high bluff overlooking the ICW and lies above the FEMA flood plain in an "X" elevation zone; hence, flood insurance is not required on the residence. The dock configuration includes a 75' floater, large covered pier head, a 400+ foot walkway, water supply line, and a 12,000 lb. boat lift, which presently houses a 33' outboard boat. The dock is situated on the deepwater side of the Wappoo Cut entering the Charleston Harbor. Water level at dead low tide is 10' deep, ensuring navigable water any time. The exterior construction of this home is equally impressive, featuring Savannah grey red brick, copper gutters with an extensive underground drainage system, a black slate roof imported from Spain, and limestone lentils above windows. As an added bonus, all exterior fascia and soffits are made of no-maintenance AZEK. Entering this 8,000 square foot home through the custom mahogany front door, you're in the midst of the grand 25' high foyer with custom chandelier and large, 3' x 3' marble tiles. From nearly every room of this amazing home, you're treated to either panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway or the Country Club of Charleston's lush golf course. Ceiling height on the first floor is 11' and crown molding is found throughout this fine home. The interior details of this spectacular Charleston home feature extraordinary black walnut floors throughout (except bathrooms), custom black walnut interior doors, and custom handrails also crafted in black walnut. On the main level, off the foyer is a spacious formal dining room with custom dental crown molding and another beautiful chandelier. The large formal living room boasts custom coffered ceilings, a large fireplace and panoramic views of the ICW. A welcoming breakfast/casual dining room lies between the formal living room and kitchen, again showcasing the wonderful waterfront views. The spacious chef's kitchen is complete with twin side-by-side Sub Zero refrigerator/freezers, Blue Star 6-burner range plus griddle, custom cabinetry, custom range hood, drawer-style microwave, Bosch dishwasher, and a large breakfast bar with seating for five. Open to the kitchen is a special sitting room which features a groin ceiling often seen in European churches, which makes for a great conversation piece while entertaining guests and family. Also, between the kitchen and dining room is a custom wet bar/butler's pantry with a Sub Zero wine cooler, Sub Zero ice machine, and a Bosch wine glass dishwasher. The first floor hallway also leads to a half bath, the custom executive office detailed in quarter sawn white oak trimmed in black walnut and one of the most amazing custom black walnut ceilings ever created. Finally on the main level is the spacious master suite with more panoramic views of the ICW and the golf course. The large master bedroom features a barrel ceiling framed by black walnut. Continuing through the master suite you will find a laundry room, a hidden wall safe, and a spectacular master bath featuring a dome ceiling, heated floor, spacious glass-enclosed shower, dual vanities, water closet with bidet, and over-sized Jacuzzi tub. An extra large walk-in closet/dressing room, complete with special luxury features and more space than many bedrooms, is located just off the master bath. Upstairs are four additional bedrooms...all spacious and all with large ensuite baths. Also on the second level is another large family/entertainment room with built-ins and impressive views of the ICW. Two guest bedrooms, along with the family/media room, have direct access the the large upper level deck which is lined with travertine flooring. The home's black walnut-lined custom elevator services every story of this magnificent home, including the attic (finished in drywall), which is great for storing holiday decorations, furniture, household goods or clothing. From an operational perspective, the home is technologically advanced, with a state-of-the-art "smart home" system and a four zone geo-thermal HVAC system. Four separate air handlers include dehumidification units. The three-door, five-car garage has a finished floor and features a half bath, plenty of storage space, a large air conditioned office, an air conditioned exercise room, room for a motorized golf car...and extra space to spare! Come tour this special residence as it is a special family home or a perfect second residence near Downtown Charleston.
