8 Intracoastal Court, Isle of Palms, SC 29451
Supplements: of and constructed by one of Charleston's most esteemed builders. His family lived in this 5,600+ square-foot five-bedroom, five-bathroom home as their full-time residence. The structure, lot, and landscape are designed to take full advantage of the view overlooking the Intracoastal and the evening sunset. Each of the three stories includes ample living space, and the top floor also includes a full bath, making it an ideal house to grow with families as needs mature. As impressive as the interior of the home is, the outdoor living is even more spectacular. The waterfront pool and spa, natural coral stone fire pit, full service grilling area, fully shaded outdoor kitchen, long bar, deep-water dock and covered pier head flow seamlessly to create an oasis nestled in the crown barrier island of the Lowcountry. Boaters will be relieved to have finally found the boatlift and fish cleaning space needed to make the long, perfect days on the water even more enjoyable. It's an easy transition from bed to coffee to fishing to enjoying a freshly grilled catch for supper. The dock is deepwater and the bounty of the ocean is at the back door. If there's ever a reason to come inside, this house has it. The century old antique reclaimed heart pine floors, hand-forged iron railings, natural coral floors imported from the Dominican Republic, solid mahogany doors, 17-foot ceilings with exposed heart pine beams, SubZero refrigerators, Viking cooktop, Bosch appliances, and expansive custom windows make the interior comfortably stylish and well-appointed for entertaining. This home was built to incorporate many of the advancements in eco-friendly design. Additional features include sliding doors that lead onto multi-tiered porches, spacious two-car garage, geothermal heating and cooling, solar-assisted hot water heating, a reverse osmosis water system, practical laundry room placement, separate mudroom, wet bar, outdoor televisions, and tasteful dÃ©cor touches like wainscoting and an earthy, balanced palette. The master floor is complete with a bedroom with a generous bathroom suite, dual walk-in closets, and is positioned for sunset views. Three en-suite guest bedrooms are also located on this level. The third floor offers a flexible entertainment area (or future guest suite), complete with a wet bar, pool table, expansive views, and yet another deck overlooking the deepwater dotted with boats of all shapes and sizes. This home manages to walk the thin line between sophistication and relaxation in a way that can only truly be appreciated in a place like the Isle of Palms.
