Private Homes house description

Our 3 bedroom + private study, 3.5 bath home is surrounded on two sides by a lagoon on beautiful Seabrook Island. Amenities include a 5 person hot tub, ping pong table, canoe and kayak. Key features include a huge gourmet kitchen, great room with vaulted ceiling, 2 screened porches, deck with BGE BarBQ grill, 55' flat screen HDTV, complementary access to all the facilities of the Seabrook Island Club and access to two of the most pristine, uncrowded beaches on the East Coast.

Seabrook is a private gated community dedicated to maintaining the natural beauty of its live oak and pine canopies, quiet lagoons, tidal marshes and creeks, and pristine dunes and beaches. Yet it is also a premier resort offering two championship golf courses, world class tennis center, equestrian center and private club with dining, fitness and pool facility. A popular activity with the locals is cycling which is both scenic and safe on Seabrook Island.


Vacation theme:: Our favorite activities are biking along the quiet, well maintained streets circling and crossing the island and either walking or biking along the pristine beaches to watch the dolphins play off shore.

If you are looking for a quiet, but active vacation with your family or friends, this is the rental home for you. The home is new (finished the fall of 2006) and its design was inspired by the noted Southern Living architect, William Poole. With over 3200 square feet of living space plus an additional 1000 square feet of verandas, screened porches and decks, there is ample room for a large family or two smaller families or a number of friends vacationing together.

Description of house:: The spacious great room with its stone fireplace, 55' flat screen HDTV with premium Comcast cable TV/DVR service plus BlueRay DVD. The hickory shelving opens to the loft above and the open deck overlooking the lagoon where the Big Green Egg is located. On each side of the deck is a large screened porch. The east porch provides an outdoor dining option and the west porch houses the hot tub.Below this porch is the outdoor shower. Off the great room is the kitchen/dining area.

The kitchen is stunning - granite countertops, hickory cabinetry, DCS 5 burner gas cooktop, convection oven, convection microwave, over size refrigerator with front ice and filtered water dispensers, wine cooler, large double sink, etc. The peninsula and island with its prep sink provide extra work and seating space. The first floor master suite has bedroom with a king bed, a bath with heated floors, double vanity and large shower with dual heads, and walk-in closet. In addition there is a small ancillary bedroom and large connected laundry room.

Upstairs, the east bedroom has a queen bed, huge walk-in closet and private two head shower bath. The west bedroom has five single beds. The private study has a queen size pullout bed with both memory foam and air mattresses.

Amenities and equipment available:: Our rental guests have access to all the amenities of the private Seabrook Island Club which includes two championship golf courses (one designed by Robert Trent Jones), 15 Har-Tru tennis courts, equestrian center, fitness center, Beach Club, pools and dining facilities via a complementary amenity card. There is also access to the nearby newly renovated crabbing dock, trails, quiet streets and pristine beaches. Our rental guests also have access to the spectacular new lake side community center with its heated indoor/outdoor pool and extensive fitness facility.

We provide our rental guests with a kayak and a canoe which can be paddled in the adjacent lagoon. Sail and power boats and kayaks can be rented at the nearby Bohicket Marina. A full size ping pong table, paddles and balls are available to our guests in the lower level. Bikes can be rented at reasonable cost and delivered to your door. Golf packages saving you 20% are available upon request. An exercycle is also available.
We provide a beach cart to carry you gear over the ramps crossing the dunes. A wide variety of beach toys including boogie boards, crab nets, beach umbrellas and chairs are also available to our guests.

                          Our favorite activity is bicycling. The streets are both safe and scenic and there new bikes paths to Freshfields Village and Kiowa Island. Our favorite Kiowa Island destination is Beachwalker Park. The beach there is total pristine but it is a county park with facilities. Sand on both Kiowa and Seabrook beaches is often hard enough to bicycle. If you go to the right, you can bike or walk almost all the way back to Seabrook - it is just across the mouth of the combined Kiowa River and Cap'n Sam's Creek. Rental bikes are available at nominal cost: about $35 per bike per week with free delivery and pickup.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Our Seabrook Island home was custom designed and built in 2006 to accommodate our extended family shown above, yet it is comfortable for just one couple. Very flexible sleeping arrangements in five private rooms and 9 beds for up to 12 people are available. Living, cooking and dining facilities are commensurate. The kitchen was custom designed by the owner who is passionate about cooking and attended a week's boot camp at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA).

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          My wife and I first visited Seabrook Thanksgiving, 1982, with three other couples on a holiday getaway from the onset of winter in Delaware. What a wonderful vacation! We all played tennis, golf, road horses, walked the beaches and dined in the Island House while enjoying the perfect weather. Of course, we all immediately fell in love with the island and revisited it a number of times. Almost twenty years after our first visit and after looking at resorts all along the Southeast Coast, we bought a lot on Seabrook Island Road in 2001 and built our Seabrook Island home in 2006. Today three of the four original couples who first vacationed there in 1982, own a home in Seabrook or nearby Kiowa.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We enjoy taking our morning coffee on the east screened porch with the morning sun and views of the wooded landscape and adjacent lagoon. We are often entertained by the numerous birds and squirrels in the trees and occasional deer running through the yard. One of my hobbies is cooking which I enjoy in the kitchen I designed. The key feature is the 5 burner DCS cooktop. I also enjoy grilling on the Big Green Egg on the deck. I extended the roof overhang to 4 feet to protect the grilling area from rain. My wife enjoys baking in the convection oven. We have a new combination microwave convection oven. I admit that I have not yet used the convection feature, but it will surely be useful when preparing holiday dinners for large crowds.
