This home includes a full signature membership to the Clubs at St. James Plantation purchased for the buyer on behalf of the seller which is a $20,000 value (buyer to pay a $500 application fee). Privacy abounds in this masterfully built home with an incredible architectural design creating a home that has a synergetic relationship with nature. The unique positioning of the home on the land, located in the Reserve section of Saint James, gives you complete privacy from all 4 corners and an estate like feel with many of the minimum setback requirements being almost doubled. The core of the design takes full advantage of the openness around it. Soaring cathedral ceilings, numerous oversized low e windows provide passive cooling/heating, archway openings leading to brilliantly naturally lit rooms and a spectacular 2-tiered hardscape backyard reaching deep into unspoiled nature. Energy savings are impressive with a south facing Net Metering Solar Panel system, monitored by BEMC, that averages 5MWh per year, a thoughtful passive solar design. Includes tankless hot water heater that provides endless hot water and a high efficiency multi-zoned heating/cooling system. Both water and heating systems have been recently upgraded. A private Butler/Service Entry Hall features a direct route from Garage or Front Porch Service Door to a Pantry Area, Kitchen, Laundry and Dining Room. As you make your way down the private driveway you are greeted by a cheery Pennsylvania ledgestone entry leading into a warm foyer decorated with archways leading to 3 different areas. To the left you pass through a classy wet/wine bar and half bathroom to a study/media/game room and to the right is the formal dining room with a lit tray ceiling. The third archway opens to a grand vaulted great room with incredible natural light from floor to ceiling windows with a gas fireplace. The double glided French doors open to the 21.5 X 15.5 conditioned Carolina Room with a beadboard ceiling and tiled floor offering beautiful sunset views and bird watching over "Red Maple Bay" the marsh. The remarkably functional kitchen is adorned with a stylish tile backsplash and specialty granite countertops, and is adjacent to a well-lit informal dining area with a half vault ceiling and sizable pantry and desk area. Popular one-story living is made easy with the master retreat and a guest suite all on the bottom floor. The astonishing 17 X 16.5 ft. master bedroom showcases a sitting area, lit tray ceiling and uninterrupted nature views with a private exit door to the backyard. The bathroom has 2 separate vanities and a tasteful tiled shower surrounded with multiple body jets, best of all a French door leads to your own private spa! Laundry room is conveniently located in the master suite area but also accessible from a Butlers Hallway. The 2 guest bedrooms on the other side of the home are privately situated away from the master and share a full bathroom. Guest Suite maybe either 2 bedrooms or one bedroom and sitting area, with private access thru the Carolina Room or main house. Upstairs is a 15 X 15 ft. bonus room with its own full bathroom perfect for use as a flex room or additional guest quarters. Extra closet space throughout the home provides excellent storage and the over sized 2 car garage with additional closet space is wonderful. Updates/upgrades are too numerous to list so please make sure to look at the additional features page but to name a few; lighted niches, solid inch Camaru/Brazilian teak floors, Travertine Stone Flooring, Central Vacuum, Whole House Sound System, Cat 5 and Coax cabling, newly painted and a sealed dehumidified crawlspace.
