French Provincial meets Southern Charm! Soon to be featured in Charleston Home and Design Magazine, this remarkable custom-built home by Sheppard Construction is perfectly situated on an immaculate pond-front lot in Olde Park in Mt Pleasant. From the moment you lay your eyes on this property, you'll notice the impeccable appearance of the Robert Chesnut designed landscaping. Mature bushes and trees surround the brick-paved circular driveway and the striking exterior of this grand home. The mahogany front door and shutters, the custom windows and doors, the copper lanterns, the front terrace with blue stone tile, and the stucco (over brick) exterior all contribute to this elegant exterior. Enter the home to find tall 11 ft ceilings, custom crown molding, an arched entry, terrazzo tile flooring in the foyer, and gorgeous walnut floors beyond. To the left of the foyer, you will find the study/library with walnut-paneled walls, built-in shelving, and a fireplace. Just off this room, there is a convenient butler's pantry that leads to the open family room with generous natural light, reclaimed wood ceiling beams, built-in shelving flanking the fireplace with a cast-stone mantle, and three arched French doors leading out to the rear terrace. The chef's kitchen has custom walnut cabinetry, marble countertops, high-end appliances including a GE Monogram six burner range with two ovens and a Sub Zero refrigerator, a farmhouse copper sink, a huge statement island with a copper sink and a breakfast bar, a large walk-in pantry, and a wet bar with an ice maker, a wine refrigerator, and copper sink. The formal dining room has elaborate custom moldings and a fireplace. Both the library and the dining room have arched French doors to the front terrace. The main level has the first floor owner's suite with two sets of French doors leading out to the rear terrace, a fireplace, and an en-suite bath with travertine flooring, a huge travertine step-in shower with a built-in bench, a dual sink marble vanity, and two walk-in closets with custom shelving. The rear terrace includes blue stone tiles, a fountain, a fireplace, custom patina planters, and a lower patio with access to the fenced-in backyard. A laundry room and powder room can also be found on the main level. Upstairs, you'll find the second owner's suite with a fireplace and two separate en-suite baths connected by the massive, step-in shower. Each side includes a vanity and a custom walk-in closet (one side has two walk-in closets). Two additional bedrooms, both with en-suite baths, a bright office space with a Juliet balcony with a wrought iron rail, and an additional bedroom/flex space with an en-suite bath and finished and unfinished storage space complete the second level. This home also features copper gutters, landscape lighting, a synthetic slate roof (updated in 2017), a three-car garage and a large driveway, an encapsulated crawlspace, a whole-house generator, a vented attic, a closet safe, Yale door locks, and a security system. This home is conveniently located in the heart of Mt Pleasant and is under a half mile from the I'on Club, just 2 miles from East Cooper Medical Center, 2.7 miles from dining on Shem Creek, 4.6 miles from downtown Charleston, and 5.8 miles from Sullivan's Island.
