A HOUSE NAMED SERENITY On a very private lot abutting a conservation area, amid the privacy of mature gardens, 12 large Oaks and towering Palms sits Serenity. Offering casual elegance, meticulous design and expert craftsmanship anchored by beautiful waterfront. The home provides a luxurious environment in which to pursue an idyllic waterfront lifestyle. Many windows provide natural light and water views from every room, including the bathrooms. Watch the sunset from most rooms in the house and from the dock. The KITCHEN has views in all directions, an 11' island, 'chef' type access to appliances, pots and pans, dishes. A Wolf 6 burner dual fuel stove top with griddle and two ovens, a Sub-zero refrigerator/freezer, granite counters, and a walk-in pantry. An enjoyable place to cook and a gathering place for family and friends. TWO DINING AREAS, FAMILY ROOM and SITTING AREA are completely open to the kitchen and share the warmth of the over-sized fireplace. This open space connects to a screened porch, making for endless entertaining space and memory-filled times. From this main level, the entertaining extents to a huge patio, bocce ball and horseshoe courts. The patio pavers are set in sand, allowing for easy addition of a pool.On to the short 276' DOCK walk, COVERED PIER HEAD, FLOATING DOCK and BOAT LIFT. Take your boat and cruise to Charleston (10 miles), come home, shower on the covered dock, and dine while watching the water and the birds as they move through the sweet grass. As you salute the setting sun and the millions of color changes on the water, the dock lights will come on giving you a peaceful end to a great day. Return to Serenity and enjoy the hardwood floors, the 10' ceilings on the first floor, detailed woodwork, wide crown and base moldings. The very open public space shares the first floor with an Elevator, the 4th Bedroom, 4th full Bathroom, and Office. On the second floor, the Master retreat has windows on two walls, facing the river, and a large private porch; both with views up and down the river. There is a large frameless shower, soaking tub, and massive closet with built-ins for easy organization. Go to sleep watching the water ripples reflected from the dock lights. Wake up to the shimmer of the river in front and a full forest to your left. The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms are sun-lit suites with large frameless showers and walk-in closets. The home was built with an energy efficiency focus. There is Geo-Thermal HVAC, insulated hurricane rated windows and doors, enclosed attic, dehumidified garage, side vented fireplace, high efficiency hot water heater and closed cell form insulation. A new automated irrigation system lowers water consumption. All ceiling overhead lights are LED. For safety, there are grounded lightning rods. For some, the Garage is as important as the home. No one will be disappointed in this under-house garage. The 3-stop elevator is convenient for moving everything from the garage to the upper floors. The dehumidified 3-bay garage is large enough for a 4th tandem car or boat trailer. There are 5 enclosed storage areas, a shower and sink, and a dehumidified workshop with 220 v. The garage doors are also hurricane rated. In our harsh salt air environment, solid construction of the highest quality materials is of upmost importance.
