This beautiful custom-built brick and Hardiboard home is nestled on a quiet street in the desirable gated section of Dunes West. The lot backs up to a pond and a wooded area, for added privacy. This home was specifically drawn for the lot and there is no other home with the same or similar design. You'll notice great curb-appeal, with custom landscaping, including 4 Live oak trees and several Palmetto trees. The two-car garage, which is completely sealed and sprayfoamed, gives you plenty of space for parking and storage. You'll enjoy energy savings from the energy-efficient windows, spray foam insulation, tankless water heater, and natural gas appliances (including a stub out for a grill). The home is also hurricane-ready, with pre-cut plywood systems in place (with hangers) for the ground level windows, storm shutters for the upper level windows, and Lexan plate impact protection on all fixed windows ($10,000 investment). In addition, the home has extra hurricane/earthquake bolts installed from the foundation to the roof. The whole house is elevated above the flood zone and the lot is the highest lot on the street. The front porch welcomes you home. As you enter, you'll be greeted by solid Oak hardwood floors, crown molding and solid pine wood trim, solid doors, Moen oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, custom blinds, recessed lighting, and a spacious open floor plan, with an abundance of natural light and a great flow for entertaining and everyday living. The home is pre-wired for surround sound and for sound on the back porch, and is also equipped with smart wiring, including a closet dedicated to structured wiring. You can easily install an elevator, as an elevator shaft, power, and wiring are already in place. Enjoy cool evenings in front of the cozy gas fireplace, in the family room, where you'll also find a beautiful coffered ceiling. The eat-in kitchen is a cook's delight and boasts recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances (including a gas range and vented hood), custom granite countertops, a large island with a breakfast bar, and plenty of cabinet and counter space. Refrigerator to convey, with an acceptable offer and as part of the sales contract. The spacious main-floor master bedroom features a tray ceiling, a custom walk-in closet, and a nice en-suite, with ceramic tile flooring, a dual vanity with granite countertop, and a custom tile shower with a glass door. Three more bedrooms, with custom closets, and two full bathrooms, with custom tile showers (one is a walk-in tile shower, with a glass door, and the other is a tub/shower combo, with a subway tile surround), are located upstairs. The upstairs loft area would make an excellent game room or entertainment room. There is also a nook/cutout space for a desk, which is already wired for data. On the ground level (garage level), you'll find an in-law suite, which includes a living area, a bedroom, and a full bathroom. The space also has it's own separate HVAC unit. The space could also make a great guest suite, game room, children's playroom, or home office. Enjoy your morning coffee from the screened-in back porch, which offers a private view of the backyard, pond, and woods. The deck, with gas grill hookup, and the large fenced-in backyard will be perfect for grilling out, entertaining, or watching the kids play. You'll appreciate all of the amenities that Dunes West has to offer, including three community pools (including a water park), a clubhouse, tennis courts, a fitness center, a golf course designed by Arthur Hills, and walking trails. Dunes West Golf & River Club memberships are available. Conveniently located near shopping, dining, and area beaches.
