Welcome to The Port Royale which is a beautifully designed home that reflects the look and feel of the Lowcountry. This open floor plan was designed and built with careful attention to every detail.
As you make your way up the brick staircase with wrought iron railing entrance you will land on a deep southern piazza with ceiling fans which will provide a great place to "porch sit" and relax while sipping a cool drink. Step through the magnificent mahogany double front doors and admire the wonderfully open two story foyer with shiplap siding on the walls from floor to vaulted ceiling. The wide open den/office, conveniently located off of the foyer, can be closed off for privacy by sliding the double barn doors . The open floor plan provides endless opportunities for entertaining with a wet bar and a wine storage room conveniently located between the dining and great rooms. The great room, with recessed beamed ceiling, has three sets of French doors that invite you onto a back porch which is complete with an outdoor fireplace and built-in grill area with Bermuda shutters for privacy.
A spacious kitchen and morning room with open trusses features an extra large center island with gorgeous granite countertops, bar seating area, upgraded appliances, upper glass storage cabinets, and so much more! Adjacent to the kitchen is a hallway leading to an oversized walk-in pantry, powder room and opening into the spacious arrival center which contains the washer/dryer, sink, desk, island, bench seating with cubbies below and plenty of other cabinets for storage. The bright back staircase leads down to the oversized 3 car garage with plenty of storage.
For added convenience, take the three stop elevator back up to the first floor close to your master bedroom suite which is truly an owner's paradise. When you enter, you first notice the coffered ceiling and painted beams. The two large walk-in closets in addition to the 3 mirrored wall is a great dressing area on your way to the master bath. The large master bath contains a unique and beautiful walk thru shower with separate shower heads and freestanding soaking tub which gives you a truly spa-like experience.
The curved wall staircase leads up to the second floor containing three secondary bedrooms complete with their own baths. The heart of the second floor certainly is the spacious bonus room, with a beamed vaulted ceiling and gorgeous views of a Grand Oak tree covered with Spanish moss and an expansive view of the marsh. This room offers endless possibilities and is complete with cabinetry and a wet bar. Tucked away there is a quaint loft area that is the perfect location for a small office or a place to cozy up with a good book.
Interior highlights include: 10' to 17' ceilings, 8' interior solid core doors, hand scraped Hickory Palomino flooring and tile in all baths. Exterior highlights include: covered front porch, metal roof, tabby accented driveway and professional landscaping.
