Welcome to 2619 Bayonne St, a beachfront masterpiece on Sullivan's Island on a half acre lot with 180 degree views of the beach and ocean from both floors. This is a new custom Beau Clowney home, executed by Daly & Sawyer and designed by Marshall Morgan Erb, ASID. As you enter the gated driveway, you will see one of the most solidly built and gorgeous homes on the island - a mixture of masonry, shingle and wood, and a copper roof true to Sullivan's Island's character with Caribbean and modern influences. To the right you ascend the grand formal staircase to a louvered vestibule with hand painted tiles and a gas lamp (one of three). Enter the large mahogany door, and you will be in the foyer with views to the ocean.On the right is a 1,000 plus wine cellar that is temperature and humidity controlled, and a large coat closet that can accommodate additional storage. Moving into the house you will pass a luxurious powder room and formal staircase leading to the 2nd floor bedrooms, and beyond, a light filled lacquered library/den with floor to ceiling mahogany windows and doors, a fireplace, a private veranda in the front, and a deck to the left that leads to the staircase to the lower level yard, saline pool and jacuzzi, and 2,000 square feet of living space underneath the home, with 2 wood burning fireplaces and multiple seating areas! If you turn left after walking into the foyer, you will have sight lines through the pantry hall, kitchen, Butler's pantry to the opposite end of the house. A similar full floor view corridor exists on the left towards the beach side of the house off the library, through the kitchen, casual dining nook, to the bar and family room. The huge kitchen, with floor to ceiling windows and doors looking out over the ocean is the focal point of the home. It has room for a large formal dining table as well as club chairs and a coffee table in front of the massive window. The large island will have ample storage, a sink and bosch dishwasher, with seating at the counter. All the kitchen countertops will be made of Namibia White marble. The long counter facing the porch (which runs the full length of the front of the house), will have an additional sink and Bosch dishwasher, and a gorgeous stainless steel La Cornue range with brass accents and a custom vented hood. On one side of the kitchen are the 30 inch Miele Refrigerator and 30 inch freezer integrated with vertical shiplap paneling, and a stack of three Miele stoves, including a combined microwave/convection oven. On the opposite wall, there will be ample storage, also hidden behind vertical shiplap paneling. There is a large walk in pantry with additional refrigeration doors as you face the street to the left. To the right is a butler's pantry with glass cabinetry to show off your finer tableware and glassware. If you take a left from the kitchen facing the beach you will come to the upholstered breakfast nook/casual dining area, which has a large steel encased porthole connecting it to the butler's pantry, creating a striking architectural detail, as well a site lines from the front of the house to the ocean. Past the dining nook is a bar on both sides of the hall to the family room, with Calacutta marble tops, antique mirror backing, ample shelving, a refrigerator and ice maker. The main bar area has pocket doors that can be closed if desired. Walk into the spacious family room with an additional fireplace, floor to ceiling mahogany windows, a closed off office space (which the owner's were going to use for musical equipment and recording), and a wall of floor to ceiling mahogany glass doors that open completely to the large screened porch that wraps around the house for outdoor living and dining. The guest wing is off the front of the house on the left and has it's own entrance off the porch. It is also accessible through an additional powder room that leads to a bunk room with 4 private beds with staircase access. Each bed has it's own window, nook for necessities, sconce, and drapes for privacy. A bathroom with a shower separates the bunk room from the king sized guest bedroom. The staircase on this end of the home leads up to the bedroom floor. On the left, facing the ocean, there is a very private master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a large outdoor covered "living room." The master bath has a private toilet, 2 sinks, ample storage and is done in gorgeous mosaic marble tiles and slabs, with a wet room that includes a soaking tub, rain shower and wall shower. The huge walk in closet can be accessed from the bathroom or the master. Separating the master wing is a TV room or study with floor to ceiling glass windows on either side which provides a nice transition and buffer space to the three additional bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, extensive closet space, ensuite bathrooms and ocean views. One bedroom has a private deck. Additionally, there is a large laundry room and linen closet on this floor, with additional storage at the top of the stairwell landing. All the bathrooms in the house are either entirely marble, or a combination of marble and hand painted or hand glazed tiles. The light fixtures throughout the home are mostly from Circa lighting. The house has 2 garages with covered parking for 5 cars, with additional parking in the driveway. There is an elevator accessed by the left garage that goes to all floors. The incredible landscaping is designed by Sheila Wertimer, the under house floors and pool surround will be in coral stone with custom tile surrounding the top of the pool and Jacuzzi. There will be an automatic cover for the pool and Jacuzzi for safety and energy conservation purposes. Please note that the pool is integrated into the foundation of the house and partially under the house for sun protection and warm winter entry. The house has state of the art wiring for cable and A/V, and multiple zoned areas for heating and cooling. All of the windows and doors are hurricane grade. There is no other home like 2619 Bayonne on Sullivan's Island.
