Spacious waterfront estate with panoramic views overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and located just 13 miles from the Historic Charleston Peninsula and 19 miles from the luxury island resorts of Seabrook and Kiawah. Situated on a .9 acre lot, this home offers a private and serene lowcountry setting complete with a built-in pool and short private dock with pierhead and floating platform. Custom built by the current owner, no element in design or construction was overlooked. ICF with formed concrete and steel was used for the exterior wall construction for superior durability and strength with the added advantages of energy efficiency, lower insurance premiums and utility bills. Notable interior features include wide plank Brazilian Cherry floors, a 3-stop elevator with access to every loor, a 'silent floor' construction system and a floored walk-in storage area on the 3rd floor with approximately 600 sq ft and full size windows that could be converted to additional living spaces. The front entry foyer with soaring ceilings boats gleaming marble floors and an impressive stairway and balcony above. The formal dining room is to the left of the entry hallway and can easily accommodate 10 guests with additional space for a buffet and china cabinets. Continue through the foyer to be greeted by the amazing water views from the bright and spacious family room. With coffered ceilings, built-in cabinetry and bookshelves, a Rumsford fireplace and large glass french doors leading to the wide rear deck, this room is perfect for entertaining guests and family or simply relaxing. The main floor master bedroom features grand bay windows to maximize the water and marsh views, enough space for a seating area, and dual closets - hers with fully custom encased clothing areas within the dressing room. The adjoining en-suite master bath offers dual vanities, a stand-up shower and corner jacuzzi tub. The kitchen with abundant glazed maple cabinetry includes many custom features including pull-out shelves in all lower cabinets, an integrated spice drawer, lazy susan corner cabinet and a wet bar in the adjoining butler's pantry.

Another full bathroom and bedroom with dormer windows and dual closets, and an additional room currently used as a craft room complete the third floor. A large portion of the first floor of the home adjacent to the 3+ car garage is heated and cooled and much of this area is not included in the stated square footage.

Within this area you'll find a family room with a full bathroom and another Rumsford fireplace that opens out to the pool deck and views, several workshop areas offering a 'spray room' and 3 air compressor outlets from the main workshop compressor and another room with bay window rear views that could be used for numerous purposes or adjoined to the family room to create a guest suite.

Amenities include a community dock that allows overnight boat dockage, a pool and clubhouse, 2 tennis courts and a pickle ball court.
