This prime front beach home, a marriage of Lowcountry elegance and British Colonial tradition, is one of the most beautiful luxury homes in the Charleston area. Located on Sullivan's Island, an enclave of barefoot sophistication 10 miles from downtown, the home was custom designed by acclaimed architect Beau Clowney and constructed by master builders Daly & Sawyer. With the help of interior designer Jenny Keenan, the owners have created a space where elegant design mixes with happy embellishments and where comfort reigns. Spaces are flexible to be comfortable for family time and expansive for grand entertaining and guests. The residence is spacious, yet intimate, with ocean views from nearly every room. Features include gourmet kitchen, wine refrigerator and beverage stations and a vast butler's pantry; a corner master bedroom with dual master baths and dressing areas; an upstairs family media and game room; a children's wing with bunk room, study area and bedroom; three additional bedrooms with private baths; downstairs guest lounge and home-gym; a private office pavilion with copper fittings, cedar shake roof; antique pecky cypress walls recovered from an estate in Palm Beach; a formal dining gallery framed by hand-painted Degournay wallpaper; nearly 2,000 square feet of covered porches, decks and patios, including a louvered gazebo with panoramic ocean views; indoor and outdoor fireplaces; a family sized laundry room and elevator. Behind-the-scenes highlights include copious closets, state-of-the-art lighting and AV with surround sound and outdoor speakers, security and intercom, high-impact windows, a hypo-allergenic HVAC system, attic storage and double garages with room for a golf cart or small boat. Outside, beautiful landscape and an inviting saltwater pool provide the perfect setting for al fresco dining and parties. Noted Charleston landscape designer, Shelia Wertimer, surrounded the residence in lush greens, including Meyer lemon trees, magnolias, palms and olive trees, and rimmed the perimeter with island grasses, orange and kumquat trees, hydrangea, camellia and confederate jasmine. Since its debut in January of 2016, this villa-style home has won the hearts of locals and visitors alike. It is a multi-category winner of Design In Great Spaces Award (DIGS Charleston), an architecture and design competition, and has been featured in several publications including Coastal Living magazine. This stunning beachfront home is situated along Sullivan's Island's "Gold Coast," where protected beachfront is widest and lapping ocean waves continue to add coastal sands.*Listing provided courtesy of the MLS.
