Amazing new price! Wonderful 5 BR, 5.5 BA decorator's own home! Situated on a larger corner lot, it affords more privacy than is usually found in one of our lifestyle communities like WaterSound Beach. In addition to the east and south sides being protected by the private streets, it is bordered on the north by a park, and on the west by a small sandy path. Upon entering from the back door or front door, one is greeted by soaring 12 ft. ceilings and shiplap walls. In addition, there are beautiful wide plank floors in the entire downstairs, as well as rustic beams in the living and dining areas. The gourmet kitchen boasts the finest Wolf appliances and a Bosch dishwasher. The countertops are gorgeous granite and the customcabinets only add to the ambience. The eating counter enhances the practicality of this awesome kitchen. Other amenities include a 6-burner gas cooktop complete with a pot filler.
One looks through a 14 ft. wide old brick arch in this open floor plan home to the dining area and large living area with a beautiful old brick fireplace and a reclaimed wood mantle. Two sets of French doors lead into a huge screened porch complete with a Viking gas grill built into a granite-topped prep center. A wall mounted TV provides a great place to watch football games and this room doubles the entertaining space.
The main floor has a large master bedroom with walk in closet, and ensuite bathroom with double lavatories and free standing walk in shower. Also on the first floor is a very large foyer leading to the stairs that are bathed in light from the clerestory windows. A large laundry room with sink, washer and dryer, and a beautiful powder room complete the first floor.
The second floor has a huge family room and another master bedroom. This master is beamed and has a private balcony, and a huge bathroom with new Jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, and double lavatories. There are 2 large walk in closets. The balcony overlooks a lovely wooded area and is an ideal spot for stargazing. Also on the second floor are two additional bedrooms each with their own walk in closets and bathrooms. There is a full stairwell leading up to a tower room on the third floor.
The double garage is outfitted with shelving and a bicycle storage system. Atop the large garage with storage galore, there is the carriage house apartment with a full stainless steel kitchen, and dining area. This could easily serve as a third master suite, as the bathroom is quite large with double lavatories and a big walk in shower, walk in closet, and there is another laundry room just off the bedroom.
Of the 3 water heaters, 2 are tankless Rinnai heaters. The irrigation well for the lush landscaping makes it relatively carefree. Two of the four HVAC units are newly installed. There is closet space large enough for an elevator just off the foyer and in the upstairs den. The gracious porches and decks are all ipe hardwood.
WaterSound Beach is an enchanting gated community with security personnel on duty. Although the extensive WaterSound Beach Gulf Front is easily within strolling distance, this is an area of WSB that welcomes golf carts, should you have a load of family and guests to take to the beach. In addition to the two fenced in pet areas at 10 Tidepool, the community dog park is just around the corner. Call to come see this beautiful home!
