Spring has Sprung!

The grass is greener, the blooms are brighter and the temperatures are rising – Spring has officially sprung! I’ve rounded up my five favorite things about this sunny (and gorgeous!) season on Seabrook Island below. Happy #FirstDayofSpring, y’all!

 

The greens are greener.

Although our golf maintenance team, and Seabrook Island Club maintenance squad, do a fantastic job of keeping our Island beautiful and serene year-round, the warmer temperatures in March and the rain in April brighten and liven our greens! Here on Seabrook we have two award-winning golf courses, Crooked Oaks and Ocean Winds, each offering unique challenges and playing conditions. Visit here to learn more about Seabrook Island Golf!

 

In Bloom!

Azaleas, Magnolias and jasmine – oh my! Our favorite thing about Spring in the Lowcountry? The flowers! Although the pollen is irritating (pun intended), the azaleas are already in full force here on Seabrook Island – downtown Charleston, too! And the jasmine and magnolia trees will begin to bloom next month.

 

Longer Days.

Although Daylight Savings can be an absolute pain, it also signals LONGER days! Meaning, more daylight hours for golf, trail rides, tennis matches, oceanfront dining and hours by the pool. With cooler temperatures at night, Spring is also a perfect time of year for sunset beach walks and star gazing.

 

Open for the Season.

Our favorite spot on the Island, the Beach Club/Pelican’s Nest, opens for the season at the beginning of Spring! Oceanfront happy hour, lunch with ocean views and lounging by the pool? Sign us up! The pools at the Beach Club and the Seabrook Shoppe will open for the season this Friday, March 23rd, and the Pelican’s Nest and Cap’n Sams Grill will open next Friday, March 30th. Stop by the Shoppe from 2-4pm on the 23rd for champagne and snacks at their “Sip & Shop” event!

 

Easter in the Lowcountry!

Easter is one of our favorite things about Spring, and there are a few great events on Seabrook Island to celebrate. Stop by the Island House front lawn at 10am on Saturday March 31st for the popular Easter Egg Hunt and/or the Ocean Terrace at 6:30am on Easter Sunday for the Sunrise Service. + the Island House will be serving a special Easter brunch from 11am-3pm on Sunday. Our neighbors, Freshfields Village, are also hosting a few events Easter Weekend! Their Spring Festival is 11am-3pm on Saturday, March 31st, and their Easter Service is at 9:30am on Easter Sunday on the Village Green.

Happy Spring!

Featured Property Friday: The Perfect Beach House!

It’s not an exaggeration when I say that 2249 Catesby’s Bluff is the perfect. Beach. House. Bright soaring spaces, ocean breezes, a stunning renovation and plenty of living space make this an ideal beach home or full-time residence!

This home’s inverted floor plan allows light to flood the great room and kitchen on the second floor. But it’s the dramatic curved stairway, situated in 2-story foyer, that is the first stunning feature you first notice when you walk in the front door.

Up the stairs we go to an open living and dining room.

Features here include a vaulted ceiling, a full wall of windows, access to a screened porch and a rear deck and beautiful hardwood floors.

This space is also open to a beautifully renovated kitchen with bar-top seating, crisp white cabinetry, granite countertops, gorgeous backsplash and stainless steel appliances – including a wine fridge!

The master suite is just down the hall and has a large walk-in shower, dual vanities and a soaker tub.

Perfect for hosting out-of-town guests or entertaining, the majority of the first floor is an open family room. Also on this level are three additional bedrooms and three baths.

Best of all? This home, with a second row location, is located just a quick walk to North Beach!

Featured Property Friday: A Secluded Beach Getaway

In many ways, the Live Oak Villas are a near-perfect getaway on Seabrook. Close to the beach and the hustle and bustle of the Beach Club (in reality, it’s just a short bike ride!), but nestled amongst the Live Oaks and palms of the Lowcountry.

Near the secluded and gorgeous Camp St. Christopher, this community is tucked away from Seabrook Island Road on the golf course, offering both privacy and activity. Fun fact: there is even a walking path to nearby Privateer Creek Road! And 2777 Live Oak Villa is about as perfect as they come.

Beautifully updated and open, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is an end unit located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the 15th hole of Crooked Oaks Golf Course.

Featuring an open kitchen/dining/living room, it’s the updates here that make this unit stand out above the rest of the Live Oak Villas. Think: gorgeous Southern pine hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, new cabinetry and vanities and new showers. + it has beachy and coastal décor to boot!

An additional unique feature here is there is a professionally enclosed 10×19 sunroom.

Additional outdoor spaces include a screened porch and an outdoor grilling deck overlooking the golf course.

Two bedrooms, each with their own en suite bath, offer plenty of space for visiting guests or family members.

Short and sweet this week, but this unit is one of my favorites currently on the market!

Celebrating March Holidays!

Happy March everyone!

March has always seemed like a beginning to me. A fresh start to the new year, finally out of the winter doldrums and the promise of spring close by. There are lots of great holidays in March to celebrate: St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th, the first day of Spring on the 20th, Palm Sunday on the 25th, the start of Passover on the 31st and National Puppy Day on the 23rd. Yes, that is an actual day. Who doesn’t like puppies!

We had 31 new listings in February. This breaks the office record of 16 new listings that was set back in 2015! Kudos to Seabrook Island Real Estate’s hardworking agents – I have found them to be both knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to Seabrook Island. We have seen such an increase in traffic, that we will soon need an increase in inventory. When it comes to real estate, I never predict what may happen in the future. But, starting strong is a good indicator of how we might finish.

Recently, I took my dogs to the beach and met quite a few dog parents – what a wonderful place for our four-legged family members to hang out. So, in honor of National Puppy Day, I have included a few special “puppies” that need homes! For adoption information, contact the Charleston Animal Society at 843.329.1541.

Bella is 8 months old and very sweet!

Snapple is a very excited 5 month-old!

Cadet is a beautiful, 1 year-old bulldog mix who loves to play!

Happy Spring!

Featured Property Friday: Life on a Lagoon

When I was making a list of properties to feature on #FeaturedPropertyFriday, 2455 The Haul Over was at the very top! Situated on a cul-de-sac and overlooking a large lagoon with views of the 4th hole of Ocean Winds, + 3,900+ sq ft of living space, it’s a great family home. Although the interior spaces are stunning, this home’s view is what truly makes it unique.

Originally built in 2007 by Tom Berl of Surfside Construction, this stucco home was carefully designed with family in mind with great attention to detail. Unique features include 10 ft ceilings, custom-made cabinet hardware, crown moldings, 12” baseboards, large windows, wide plank Brazilian teak and Travertine flooring and the finest finishes. It was even featured in Charleston Home & Design Magazine in 2008!

The front garden path heads to the house with mahogany, double front doors that open to a welcoming foyer. The great room is straight ahead and has a vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, cast stone surround and built-in shelving and cabinets.

Double doors lead to the rear deck that overlooks the lagoon with an Egret nursery and views of the golf course.

The master suite and the Carolina Room off the kitchen also have access to the rear deck. A unique feature here is the screened in gazebo with a “summer kitchen” – grill, refrigerator and seating!

The great room is open to the stunning, gourmet kitchen. Professionally equipped, it is a chef’s dream featuring Sub-Zero, Miele and Wold appliances including a 6-burner gas cooktop and grill, a double oven, warming drawer and a built-in coffee system. It also incorporates custom-designed cabinets, a large center island with seating, granite countertops, stone backsplash and Franke stainless steel sinks. Across the way is a sizable walk-in pantry with floor-to-ceiling shelving.

The Carolina Room is just off the kitchen and has a vaulted cypress ceiling and Travertine flooring. Also on this side of the home are two guest bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath, a powder room, the laundry room + a spacious, private guest suite with a full bath.

Leading back to the foyer is a built-in bar area with glass shelving, granite countertops, cabinets for storage and a wine cooler. Steps from both the kitchen and the dining room, this is perfect for entertaining!

On the opposite side of the foyer are an office and the luxurious master suite. With a closet to die for, and breathtaking golf and lagoon views, this space is a must-see. The master bath has stone flooring, a large circular walk-in shower, a double vanity with Onyx sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and a custom linen closet.

Additional features of this home include: an elevator, central vacuum, an outdoor shower, under house storage, a water filtration system and a 2-car garage with epoxy flooring, storage cabinets and a work bench.

Perfect for entertaining, and for bird watching!, this home is a sight to be seen!

Featured Property Friday: The Charm of Eclectic Decor

After a brief hiatus in January, due to the holidays and the New Year, I am back with our first #FeaturedPropertyFriday post of 2018!

We’ve had some great properties listed this year thus far (we are at 26 new listings in February alone!) making the decision to pick a home for our first Featured Property DIFFICULT. I settled on 2941 Baywood Drive for three primary reasons: 1. Homeowner Bonnie’s sense of style is out of this world cool. Just wait until you see photos! 2. Its floor plan features an open concept that is so hot on the market right now, making it a great house to entertain in. And 3. It’s in a great location.

Welcome to 2941 Baywood Drive!

Step through the front door into a spacious living area, with hardwood floors, coffered ceiling, a gas log fireplace and custom, floor-to-ceiling built-ins. Light and airy, with a wall of windows and glass doors overlooking the outside rear deck, this space lends itself to gatherings of friends and family.

Featuring a great open-concept floor plan, this space is also open to the dining area. It offers plenty of space for a large table and signature light.

And kitchen.

The kitchen features granite countertops, fine cream cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a wine fridge, tile backsplash and a stone floor. The dining/kitchen area also leads to a screened porch with shades and a rear deck.

Also on the first floor is the spacious and luxurious master suite. Features here include custom-built closets, a glass door to the outside porch, his & her vanities, water closet, garden tub and a custom tile shower. A powder room and a laundry room complete the first floor.

Upstairs are two en suite guest bedrooms + a space currently being used as an office.

Additional details include: 12 ft doors, high ceilings, tall windows, a surround sound system, hardwood floors throughout the main living area and sea grass carpeting in the bedrooms, crown molding and recessed lighting, walk-in closets, a 2-car garage and exquisite landscaping with LED lighting.

BONUS: look at this pup that greets you in the front foyer!

Featured Property Friday: A Touch of Tuscany

Now that we have hit December, the countdown is officially on to Christmas (yay!) and the first day of winter (yikes!) Because of our slightly cooler temperatures as of late in the Lowcountry, I have found myself already dreaming of faraway lands of tropical or Mediterranean conditions. Insert this week’s #FeaturedPropertyFriday blog post: “A Touch of Tuscany.”

 3655 Cobia Court offers a touch of Italian flair, right here on Seabrook! If dark woods, rich stones and balconies with ocean views are your jam, you’ll feel perfectly content in this home’s beautifully decorated spaces.

3655 Cobia Court_front exterior_blog

Originally designed by renowned Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island architect Christopher Rose in 2012, every inch of this Tuscan-style home was impeccably planned and luxuriously appointed. It is dressed throughout in rich stone and hardwood flooring, handsome trims and moldings, arched doorways and some of the finest finishes. Stroll up the front spiral-esque stairway to an arched front door and doorway. The 2-story foyer is DRAMATIC and the curved staircase is a sight to be seen. It opens into the living room with a fireplace with carved stone mantel, which opens to a covered terrace, and leads into the dining room.

3655 Cobia Court_living 1_blog

Fostering an easy-flow throughout, step through the dining room to the stunning kitchen. Here Tuscany is best represented! Just check out the photo below, one of my favorite snapshots that Listings in Motion expertly captured that night.

3655 Cobia Court_kitchen 2_blog

Both beautiful and functional, the gourmet kitchen features Thermador appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, a center island with seating and storage, stone tile flooring, a 6-burner gas range, a custom refrigerator in a French armoire, a hand-painted ceiling mural over the island, a pantry and French doors that open to a covered patio for al fresco dining. (PHEW!)

3655 Cobia Court_kitchen 1_blog

The terraces are the stars of the show here and truly invoke the dreamy feeling of dining in Tuscany!

3655 Cobia Court_terrace_blog

Dressed in Caribbean Pine flooring and featuring a private balcony with breathtaking ocean views, the private master suite has two walk-in closets, a marble bath with a steam shower and a soaking tub.

3655 Cobia Court_master bedroom_blog

Additional spaces include: a sunroom/loggia off of the kitchen, a master sitting room, two en suite guest bedrooms with private balconies and a study with a wet bar.

3655 Cobia Court_study_blog

Why book a plane ticket to Italy when you can experience Tuscany right here on Seabrook Island instead?

Holidays on Seabrook Island!

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go…”

Festive decor, holiday happenings and warmer temperatures (comparatively to my friends and family in the Midwest) Charleston (and Seabrook Island!) is a great spot to celebrate the holidays. We have decked the halls already here on Seabrook and my December calendar is already chalk full of holiday events. Some may call me a Christmas fanatic, I am even listening to the Josh Groban Pandora station as I write this blog post, but I can’t help it! I love this time of year. So, without further adieu, I present to you my top 5 sights to see and can’t-miss events in December.

1. Festival of Lights
Daily, 5:30 – 10pm, Monday – Friday; 5:30 – 11pm Saturday & Sunday; Now – January 1st, James Island County Park
Admission: 1-15 guests: $20 per vehicle, $15 per vehicle Monday-Thursday with donation to the Lowcountry Food Bank
Before You Go: www.holidayfestivaloflights.com

If you haven’t yet made your way to the Festival of Lights at the James Island County Park, you are missing.out. Dream up the most magnificent Christmas light display you could possibly dream, now triple that. I LOVE the Festival of Lights so much, that the past 2 years I have gone not once, but TWICE. I simply can’t get enough! The tour begins by car (or, for the lucky passengers a pick-up truck with an open bed) through dozens of light displays in a variety of themes, and thousands of bulbs. But, your night isn’t finished yet! Once you are parked, make your way to Santa’s Village for nightly performances, fire pits, a train ride, treats, souvenir shops and the man in the red suit himself. This is a CAN’T MISS event for kids and adults alike!

 2. Homegrown Holiday Bazaar
10am – 4pm, December 2nd, Johns Island County Park
Admission: Free
Before You Go: www.seaislandschamber.org/holiday-bazaar

The Homegrown Holiday Bazaar, sponsored by the Johns Island Farmers Market and the Sea Islands Chamber of Commerce, returns for its 4th year this weekend, this time at the Johns Island County Park. Over 100 vendors will be in attendance – it’s the perfect time and place to get your holiday shopping finished! (Because, if you are like me, you may or may not have spent far too much money on yourself over Black Friday weekend.) Come for the shopping, but stay for the live music from the V-Tones, holiday carriage and hay rides, an antique tractor show, horse meet & greets, Santa and food truck fare. + if you are in the mood to shop local this holiday season, be sure to stop by our neighbors Freshfields Village. And fun fact – although officially “closed” for the season, The Charleston Farmers Market  hosts its holiday market from 9am – 3pm on December 2nd & 3rd, 9th & 10th and 16th & 17th.

File Nov 29, 1 53 54 PM_preview

 3. City of Charleston Parade
3pm, December 3rd, Broad Street – King Street – Calhoun Street & Meeting Street
Before You Go: www.charleston-sc.gov/index.aspx?NID=1510

Last year I attended the City of Charleston Christmas parade with my favorite 2 year-old bestie in tow, and we had the best time! If boat parades aren’t your jam, head down to King Street for a festive and fun holiday spectacular this Sunday. Local organizations, companies and famous faces will stroll the streets of downtown blaring Christmas tunes. Before you go, be sure to click the link above for the parade route, a list of road closures and parking ramp suggestions. Fa la la la la!

 4. Bohicket Christmas Parade of Boats
6-9pm, December 9th, Bohicket Marina & Market
Admission: Free
Before You Go: www.bohicket.com/events

You may have heard of the downtown Charleston Holiday Parade of Boats, but we also have a boat parade right here on Seabrook! Does it get more Lowcountry than that? Returning only for its second year, the Bohicket Christmas Parade of Boats not only showcases stunning light displays, the Charleston Coastal Choir will also be on island singing Christmas carols, and there will be s’mores and hot chocolate by the fire. Plus, The Ice Cream Boat  is sponsoring an ugly Christmas sweater contest and the winner receives FREE ICE CREAM FOR A YEAR. That should be enticing enough, right?

 Bohicket Marina

5. Check out the Christmas Tree at the Lake House + Holiday Decor at the Club! 

Although the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Seabrook Island Lake House has come and gone, the festive atmosphere on Seabrook will continue throughout the month. As mentioned above, Seabrook Island’s halls have officially been decked, including a nearly 12 ft Christmas tree right here in the Seabrook Island Real Estate front lobby! From the life-size toy soldiers facing the golf course to several indoor Christmas trees throughout the Island, be sure to soak it all in this holiday season.

+ don’t forget to stop by Marion Square downtown to see a seriously cool Christmas tree!

Christmas in Charleston is too is magical, too spectacular – it would be nearly impossible to list all of the events and recommendations here. So, be sure to check out the Charleston CVB for its tips and tricks on how to spend Christmas in the Lowcountry. It offers everything from a holiday event schedule, to gift ideas, to restaurant recommendations for tasty holiday feasts. + be sure to read the CVB’s “12 Reasons Why There’s No Place Like Charleston for the Holidays,” and tune into its advent calendar in December! Beginning on the 1st, it will be sharing gifts, recipes and traditions daily to celebrate #ChristmasinCharleston. AND for all events, happenings and news here on Seabrook, be sure to follow and subscribe to Tidelines Blog.

Happy Holidays, y’all!

Lowcountry Living on Seabrook Island: Spotlight on the Village at Seabrook

“The Village at Seabrook is a 42-acre Planned Unit Development, of 101 homesites, that combines the neighborly feel of Island communities from the past, with the amenities of a modern neighborhood.”

The Village at Seabrook worked its way into my heart, and is now one of my favorite Seabrook Island “neighborhoods!” With styles straight out of Charleston, with charming front porches and painted in pretty hues of light green and sea blue to name a few, this collection of homes give off a Lowcountry feel, right here on the coast.

Built in the 2000s, the Village is one of Seabrook’s newest communities. When it was originally constructed, builders were aiming to create a true Village atmosphere on Seabrook. Located near and and on the Seabrook Island Lake House Fitness & Wellness Center at Palmetto Lake, this well thought out community is comprised of 3-4 bedroom single-family homes offering several different floor plans ranging from 1,700-2,900 sq ft. Additional features include open floor plans, an abundance of windows, metal roofing and those quintessential Lowcountry front porches. (Pictured below: 3005 Seabrook Village Drive.)

The Village also has two community pools, two pool houses, an oyster shed and a picnic area, and is within walking distance to the Seabrook Island Racquet Club, Equestrian Center, Bohicket Marina and Freshfields Village. With a great location, spacious interiors and community amenities, these homes also make excellent rental properties and are a spectacular spot to call home.

Featured Property Friday: Serenity on Bohicket Creek

Every once in a while, our agents venture off island to list a property. So when agent Emery told me a few weeks back that she was listing a deepwater ESTATE (cue the happy dance) just a short drive down Bohicket Road on Johns Island, I was over-the-moon excited. Spoiler alert: 3212 Bohicket Road lived up to the hype.

3212 Bohicket Road_back exterior_blog

It was a JOY to sit and chat with the homeowner that day and learn the story of her home. She and her husband built back in 2000, and hand picked each and every exquisite detail. From the 10’ double front doors hand carved in Costa Rica to the gorgeous 5” Red Oak hardwood floors, every piece was thoughtfully chosen. I mean, have you ever seen prettier doorknobs?

3212 Bohicket Road_library 2_blog

The floor plan itself was built to take full advantage of the home’s view of Bohicket Creek. Straight through the front doors is a spectacular great room featuring a wall of large windows showcasing a one-of-a-kind view.

But first, to the right of the foyer is a quaint and cozy library. Featuring a gas-burning fireplace, built-ins, American Wormy Chestnut hardwood floors – which although sound gross, are seriously beautiful – it’s the perfect room for an at-home office.

I could gush about this room for several more paragraphs, but let’s get back to the great room. Effortlessly combining the living room, dining room and kitchen, this space is, simply put, massive. (We’re talking 41’ x 41’ big.) The living space features a fireplace, built-ins and wet bar.

And the kitchen? A chef’s dream. Features here include: custom Siematic cabinetry, a 4.5’ x 10’ center island covered with solid maple butcher block with salad sink, Subzero refrigerator, 2 Subzero refrigerator drawers, Scotsman wine chiller, Jenn-Air 6-burner microwave and Bosch dishwasher.

In the hallway directly behind the kitchen houses the perfect space for party prep: a large pantry and additional counter and cabinet space. This hallway also connects to the front family room.

On the opposite side of the first floor is the stunning master suite. Perfectly designed, this relaxing space has a fireplace, a large custom walk-in closet, and a marble bath with a garden tub, dual vanities and a walk-in shower.

Upstairs are two guest bedrooms with custom closets, an additional bath and a small family room. Let’s move on to the GROUNDS shall we?

3212 Bohicket Road is not only a uniquely beautiful home, it also sits on 5.5 acres of land. With access from the master suite and family room, and affording those views that we all yearn for, the rear deck is the perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee or evening happy hour.

A few steps down is a beautifully landscaped and lit 16’ x 50’ lap pool. To the left is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath guesthouse, perfect for rental income or out of town guests, a greenhouse and a 2-car garage.

3212 Bohicket Road_pool_blog

Although there are far too many features to list here, other notable details include: a 900-bottle wine cellar, 715’ dock with pier head, floating dock, electric boat lift and lights, and hurricane shutters.

This is the epitome of a deepwater Johns Island estate in the prestigious Orange Hill Plantation section of Bohicket Road. With sunsets like these, why would you want to spend your nights anywhere else?
