Agent Remarks

Only minutes from town and the beach, but the location feels like you are in the country! Wonderful private custom home on 1.34 acres (.75 ac high) overlooking 3.4 acres of protected open space in the front and tidal marsh in the rear. Community dock on a tidal creek. This home was built to be low-maintenance, elevated and energy efficient, and was built to hurricane standards. The roof is rated for 130 MPH winds. Home features Hardiplank exterior concrete siding, 2x6 framing, hurricane shutters, additional shields for bay windows, and sliding doors in the large four-car garage. Anderson low-e & reflective coating windows, and Aztec Board exterior trim. The exterior porch decking is Masur & Duba (Brazilian hardwood) insect resistant and there is a transfer switch to be used with a gasoline powered generator. A hydraulic elevator services all floors. The main floor with 9.6'ceilings includes a formal dining room (13x12), great room (15.5x20.5) with a master exterior lighting control and a fireplace built with bricks found on site and unvented remote control gas logs. Carpeted master suite with sitting area (13x19) features a huge walk in closet, master bath with dual vanities, Jacuzzi tub & walk-in shower. Also on the first floor are an office/den (11x12), powder room, and an open kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the marsh (21x23). Australian Cypress flooring throughout. A Rinnai tankless, gas-powered hot water system supplies the main floor. The kitchen has solid maple cabinets (2" deeper than normal), a 5-burner Thermador gas cook top (lowered 2" to be more ergonomically friendly). Above the cook top is a hidden pull-out vent hood (800 CFM). Kitchen features two sinks, an extra-large wall oven, built-in microwave, trash compactor, and septic safe garbage disposal system. Countertops are granite with decorative backsplash. Also, a built-in desk/office & glass enclosed display cabinet. Off the kitchen is a large laundry room, a utility sink, a door to the deck, and storage. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and two full baths. Bedroom 1 (13x12) has an en-suite bath with Jacuzzi tub. Bedroom 2 (13x12) has alcove seats and a built-in desk. Bedroom 3 (12x16) can be a bedroom or den, is wired for surround sound with built-in speakers and subwoofer in the walls, and has sliding doors that open to a large deck with a Solumbra awning, overlooking the marsh. The second floor has its own gas-powered hot water system. There is a sitting area with another full bath (with shower). Porches and brick patios on front & rear of home. Screened porch located off the great room with view of the marsh. A formal garden with fountain frames the entrance to the home. The back porch gives a great vista of the marsh, with its ever-changing scenery with the tides and a variety of birds. Additional features include: Terminix Sentricon protection system, well and pump specifically for the 15-zone irrigation system, Central Vac, and security system. You can also launch kayaks or paddle boards from the back yard during high tide. The HOA includes a dock with a 40' floater, and a 3.4-acre historic site designated by the Historic Charleston Foundation as part of the encampment for the Battle of Secessionville. This land can never be developed, and the homeowners are the conservators of this property. Only five lots with fine homes comprise Secessionville Point. Plenty of space to enjoy nature, but only 10 minutes to Folly Beach and 15 minutes to Downtown Charleston. Harris Teeter and Publix only 5 minutes away.
