Listing Price: $4,995,000This stunning five-bedroom, five-and-one-half bath custom home enjoys long, unimpeded sunrise views across the tidal marshlands and tributaries of Cauley’s Creek. Sited on nearly an acre of land teeming with native pines, palmettos, and oaks, this home features such traditional Lowcountry architectural details as handsome Old Savannah brick, oyster tabby stucco, abundant windows, and a standing seam metal roof. Its marshside location in the highly desirable Moreland neighborhood feels miles away, yet offers quick, easy access to the amenities of Moreland Village, including dining, pools, fitness, bowling, an outfitters, riverfront dock and boat launch, and more.
Gracious outdoor living is well suited for year-round enjoyment with a pair of screened porches located just off the primary living space. The primary porch features an A-frame design with vaulted ceilings that creates drama and height and durable OSB fireplace teak flooring. With ample space for dining and lounging, this porch also includes a wood-burning fireplace clad in Old Savannah brick and an outdoor kitchen with granite countertops, a stainless Alfresco grill, and Green Egg.
A pair of mahogany doors with sidelight panels and transoms open from the front porch into a shiplap-clad foyer that not only provides a warm welcome, but also a direct line of site across the great room to the marsh beyond.
The open-concept great room features a coffered ceiling, handsome wide-plank floors, and a fireplace flanked by custom built-ins for display and storage. A four-panel sliding glass door with transoms stretches from floor to ceiling and opens directly onto the sitting porch. In the adjacent kitchen and morning room, corner-to-corner windows flood space with natural light and marsh vistas while two pair of French doors open directly onto both screened porches for effortless entertaining.
The all-white kitchen is anchored by a stunning central island with turned legs, counter seating, and storage. A suite of upscale appliances includes a Wolf six-burner range and SubZero paneled refrigerator. Its custom Smithport Classic Cabinetry is topped by Taj Mahal quartzite countertops and features glass accent panels with backlighting for a bright, inviting space.
Brightened by a trio of windows overlooking the marsh, the primary suite is located on the main floor and features his and hers closets and a large bath with heated, marble flooring, dual vanities with dressing table, and a soaking tub. Three generous ensuite guest rooms are also located on the main floor with an additional ensuite on the top floor. Full of natural light, the top floor is home to to an office / study and a large media room that is currently used as a theater, but would make an ideal family room for younger family members.
The ground floor is designed for a car collector with space for 10 cars plus a golf cart. A large covered deck directly accessible from the garage and conditioned storage space lend endless possibilities for future use. Additional features include an elevator to all floors, a Cummins 20KW generator, two dehumidifiers in the garage, a whole-house security system, and speakers throughout.
