Mount Pleasant, SC, USA
When you see this absolutely STUNNING golf front home with magnificent lake views, you will envision the Southern charm and architecture of days gone by. The massive porches begin your journey looking over the 1.8 ac homesite with its ancient grand oaks and landscaped design. With over 4400 sqft (not counting the over 1500 sqft of porches), this home and its setting must be seen to truly be appreciated. Upon entering the massive front doors, you find the welcoming feel of true Southern charm with its grand foyer and stairway. To the left, you will enter the large living room with its wood paneling, gleaming wood floors and huge fireplace (10 foot ceilings run throughout the downstairs). French doors will lead you out to the porches or you can venture to the informal family living areathat is virtually all windows to bring the not to be missed views of the lake and golf course right into your home. Continue into the kitchen from here and you will be greeted with a large kitchen (currently this area is home to a dining table that could easily seat 10) complete with a wonderful island. The key elements of the kitchen are: granite, wood cabinets, full sized Sub Zero freezer and refrigerator (the fronts of which match the cabinets), a gas cooktop, 2 Bosch dishwashers, 2 pantries, a compact fridge, a trash compactor, an ice maker, a wine chiller, and 2 sinks. Continuing your tour, you will find a well appointed formal dining room that could easily hold a table of 16 (there is also a custom banquet service for additional entertaining options. Much of the ceiling lighting in the home has been recessed. The upstairs is equally impressive with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths (2 of these rooms have built in window seats (with storage and custom cushions) and the windows all have plantation shutters. The master has a large jetted tub, a steam shower, double sink vanity and even a bidet! Additionally, there are 2 large walk in closets complete with organizers.Crown molding runs throughout much the home (including the upstairs) and the large laundry room is located upstairs for your convenience (this is a super large area that even has a folding table!). Down below the home you will find the 5 door garage (it will actually hold 7 cars). It is here that you will see just how well this home is built...massive pilings and steel girders are the foundation for this home. You will also notice that the ductwork has be encapsulated for climate efficiency (as has the attic). There is another room that is both heated/cooled which would make a perfect fitness room or playroom for the kids! If this wasn't enough, the home has a full home generator complete with a 1000 gallon propane tank! I personally can't imagine a better place to ride out a storm! This home has been lovingly maintained (and it shows) and it is a must see for the discerning buyer who is looking for an impressive home with views (of both the lake and the links) and acreage right in the middle of Mount Pleasant!
