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.”

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!

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?)

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.”

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!

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.

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.
