Trek up on to the upper level, pop open the door, and you are immediately transported to Nantucket. But with its coastal style, the unit fits right in on Seabrook Island too. This gem’s living room features a wood ceiling, stunning gray wainscoting paneling and has access to the deck – making for a spectacular view, and the perfect spot to watch the sun go down!

Featured Property Friday: Charleston Charm on Seabrook Island

We all know the house – the buttery yellow house nestled on Seabrook Island Road with the oh so charming front window boxes and black shutters shutters. (Making 2975 Seabrook Island Road an easy fit both here on the Island and in downtown Charleston.) So when I was given the task of photographing this gem a few weeks back, I was thrilled to see that its interior spaces fit its exterior.

2975 SIR_front exterior 1_blog

2975 Seabrook Island Road‘s charm continues on up its ivy-covered front steps. Its glass-paneled front door opens to a great room – large enough for both a dining table and living space. With its trayed ceiling, crown moldings, fireplace and darling rear windows, it’s the architectural details in this home that make it stand out above the rest.

2975 SIR_living 1_blog

The great room opens to a screened porch and rear deck. And BONUS. This home overlooks a lagoon. Swoon!

To the left of the great room is the eat-in kitchen with white cabinetry and appliances and the laundry room. Its windows at the far end make for a perfect breakfast nook. The hardwood floors continue in here too, and the entire home was just freshly painted.

The master suite, with access to the deck, is to the right. Its bathroom features beautiful tiled floors, dual sinks, a walk-in shower and a walk-in closet. Two guest bedrooms and an additional bath complete the first floor. Upstairs is an additional surprise – a massive FROG, with a full bath to boot!

If charm is your goal this Fall when house hunting, you can’t do better than the yellow house.

Featured Property Friday: A Coffee Lover’s Oasis

Customization is the name of the game at 2633 Jenkins Point Road. In fact, it “houses” the first aluminum roof on Seabrook! With a wink of Lowcountry charm, this spacious, breathtaking home over in Jenkins Point Plantation is the one to beat.

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_back exterior

When we originally snapped photos of this marshfront oasis on Jenkins Point Road, it was the DETAILS that I fell in love with. The view may be the first thing you spot when you enter the grand foyer, but it’s the charming Lowcountry murals flanking the living room walls that add one-of-a-kind character. This is something that can’t be found in any other home on the Island!

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_living room

To the door to the right is the kitchen, and no expense was spared in this chef’s delight. More cabinet and countertop space than even Giada de Laurentiis would know what to do with! Add to that a center island, gas range, prep area, coffee machine, butler’s pantry, double ovens and multiple sinks, and you won’t want to spend holidays anyplace else.

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_kitchen

To the right of the kitchen is my favorite. room. in this house. A quaint little sunroom – perfect for a morning cup of coffee! (If you haven’t caught on, coffee is my beverage of choice. Especially today, it’s #NationalCoffeeDay!) Wildlife murals are also the star here, and feature just a few of the creatures you will find on our Island – a turtle, a heron, a bobcat and an alligator to name a few.

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_sun room

Additional first floor features include a formal dining room, a divine master suite and a laundry room that even the novice college freshman fending for him or herself would be thrilled to do their laundry in. Upstairs is ideal for guests with a loft-like family room and two ensuite guest bedrooms, each with their own private decks.

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_deck

While the interior spaces at 2633 Jenkins Point Road are spectacular, it’s the exterior spaces that make this one stand out above the rest. Stunning sunsets are the star of the show here, and with a deck like this why would you want to spend your time anyplace else?

2633 Jenkins Point Road_blog_rear porch

This outdoor kitchen includes a bar top area with grill and small refrigerator, perfect for happy hour! Speaking of happy hour, a hidden gem of this home is its 1,000 bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar.

At 2633 Jenkins Point Road, come for the stunning features and highlights, stay for a glass of wine and this view:

Featured Property Friday: A Can’t Miss Renovation

I have a confession to make: HGTV is my favorite channel on TV, and it’s not just because I work at a real estate office. Jillian Harris is my idol (always, always, “love it,”) watching House Hunters International always gives me the itch to travel, and I screeched with delight when Chip and Joanna recently announced they were launching a line at Target. So when SIRE Sales Executive Stuart Spisak gave me the renovation background of his new listing 3575 Seabrook Island Road, I instantly thought: “This should have been on a TV show.”

3575 SIR_front exterior 1

While the home underwent a total exterior renovation in the fall of 2008 (think: new roof, siding, trim, front deck, railing, landscaping and entry steps,) it was the details of the INTERIOR renovation in fall of 2011 that blew me away. The homeowners, along with Tom Martin & Son, took on a total gut and renovation of their home and made the most of their inverted floor plan design. They tore down walls, opened up the stairwell with new railings, laid new flooring, updated the kitchen and renovated the bathrooms – the list goes on and on. See at the end of this post for a full renovation timeline!

3575 SIR_kitchen 1

Now? The star of the home is the 17×43 foot great room. With vaulted ceilings, a fireplace and three sets of beautiful windows, + its close proximity to the kitchen, this room is an entertainer’s DREAM! Outdoor spaces include a back patio with a peek of the golf course, a grilling deck off the kitchen and a large front sundeck. (Did I also mention that I’ve always wanted to be a party planner?)

3575 SIR_great room 1

Additional features include a screened porch with spectacular ceiling detail, a sneakily hidden laundry closet, an 11×27 foot family room that could be converted into a 5th bedroom, a 3-stop elevator and copious amounts of storage. To top it all off, 3575 Seabrook Island Road is just a short walk to North Beach and a quick bike ride to the Seabrook Island Club amenities.

Featured Property Friday: A Renovated Residence with a Contemporary Flair

Three words that come to mind once stepping foot inside 3143 Seabrook Island Road: serene, peaceful and contemporary. Wait, what? Homes with a contemporary flair aren’t easy to come by on Seabrook Island; one is more apt to find a cozy beach cottage or a single-level family home with a coastal flair. But this, dare I say, idyllic home tucked on Seabrook Island Road could certainly fit in just as easily on Seabrook as it would on a lake in the Midwest.

3143 SIR 1_front exterior

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Beach Club and the constant activity of the Lake House, 3143 is set on a high dune and against an ever-changing backdrop of the tidal marsh. From deer and bobcats to herons and bald eagles, Seabrook is home to some of the most unique and stunning wildlife in the Lowcountry. (#SeabrookIslandWildlife exists on social media for a reason.) The views out the kitchen, living room and screened porch are perfect for both a morning cup of coffee or an evening dinner party. Plus the porch’s grand square footage and proximity to the kitchen screams “ENTERTAIN HERE.”

3143 SIR 3_screened porch

In addition to its supreme location, 3143 was also recently renovated, top to bottom, by Tom Martin & Sons. A complete overhaul! If it were up to me, I would spend all day, every day on the screened porch. But if the #porchlife isn’t always for you, the kitchen is a chef’s dream with new tile floors, new stainless steel appliances including a gas cooktop, double ovens, plenty of counter space and a charming breakfast nook. Bon appétit!

3143 SIR 6_kitchen

It also leads into the home’s most impressive space: the great room. With it’s vaulted ceilings with cypress trim, rich hardwoods and brick fireplace with floor-to-ceiling wood details, this spacious living/dining space hints at a cozy North Woods charm.

3143 SIR 2_great room

And don’t even get me started on the master suite. That walk-in shower alone is to die for. While the 2 additional guest rooms and spacious laundry room are practical, the upstairs loft space (perfect for an at-home office!) is a surprise, and the extra spacious storage is a bonus. Additional improvements include:

1. New tile floors in entrance, laundry room, bathrooms and the side room off the kitchen + new hardwood floors in master bedroom. All hardwood floors throughout were professionally sanded and stained.

2. Professionally installed foam insulation in all attics; all walls and ceiling professionally prepped and painted.

3. New roof on house and garage and outside chimney repair.

4. New HVAC and 250 gallon propane tank (installed underground in front of garage with lines installed to house.)

5. All new wooden decking, wooden trim and wooden railing on decks.

6. New sidewalk with metal hand railing, landscaping lights and concrete steps.

7. Fully remodeled kitchen, all bathrooms, laundry room and closets in the bedrooms.

8. New appliances include dishwasher, sink, oven, gas stove, washer/dryer and refrigerator.

9. New interior doors, cabinets, ceiling lights and ceiling fans and window blinds throughout.

Congratulations Atrium Villas!

Spoiler alert: I have always loved the Atrium Villas. Just mere steps to the Island House + outstanding views of both the ocean and the golf course make this 44-unit community a can’t miss for renters and prospective buyers. Last year, the Atrium homeowners spearheaded a total overhaul of the Atriums’ exterior. (Think: new stucco walls, railings, windows, elevator and doors.) Our office was lucky enough to take a grand tour, plus peek in a few spectacular units (thank you Carl, Tom and Bill!), two weeks ago at our weekly Sales Meeting. And we were BLOWN away by the improvements!

DSC_0135_atrium view 3_twitter size

In addition to our tour and hearing the new list of improvements first-hand, which are listed below, I returned to the Atriums the following week to take photos and fell in love all over again. (Because, did I mention? Those. views.) Carl and Bill were gracious enough to let me snap photos of both their ocean and golf views and the spectacular, updated interiors of their villas. I spent the majority of the morning wandering around with a camera in hand. Plus it didn’t hurt that the sun decided to stay out and give me a stunning blue sky backdrop – in January no less!
