This one-of-a-kind luxury home is laid out on a point lot, along the St. Marys River, with panoramic views of the river and marsh on three sides. This four story classic home, designed by renowned architect John Cotner, takes full advantage of its natural setting.
It's owned by a high-tech venture capitalist who loves sports cars and racing. When he and his family left the hectic big city lifestyle and built this Low Country Charleston retreat, he made sure to include a special room for his passion, an M-5, V-10, 503 horsepower BMW. The home gets its distinct feel from a unique blend of old history and tradition and new flair. The first thing you'll notice is the welcoming front door. It's an antique wood-paneled door which originally was the entrance door to an old hotel. Once inside, you'll immediately notice the warm, cozy feeling flowing through the open space. The mix of woods throughout the home - from the wide-plank, knotty Australian cypress wood floors to the hand- distressed heart pine doors - create a rustic ambiance of a home made to live in. The line between indoor and outdoor porches is almost unobstructed. No matter where you are, you'll always aware of the vast, open landscape surrounding the residence.
This home was built for entertaining and socializing with friends and family, and the kitchen is the command center of the entire house. The modern kitchen is both practical and beautiful. The distinctively colored stained glass pantry door is another reclaimed treasure that adds to the design. The kitchen is the hub in the center of the home, yet its connected across the living room to the library and social graces of the veranda. On the other side of the kitchen, is the semi-formal, but sizable dining room. It creates a perfect backdrop for a black tie dinner party. The large screened porch can also easily be accessed from the kitchen.
