Overlooking its very own beach is a family compound consisting of a main house, plus, a complete carriage house over the second double garage. This, all surrounded by lawns, palms, a maritime forest of ancient oaks with delightful wild creatures, a very private heated pool, and over 2500 sq/ ft. of decks with ocean and sound views. At the end of the street is a private day dock where one may while away a lazy afternoon, fish for dinner, launch a kayak, hop a SeaDoo, or tie up the boat for the day.

In the main house, a chef’s kitchen with granite counters, Italian accents, natural hickory cabinetry with a large, Bosch five burner gas cook top and Bosch electric, convection oven, Bosch dishwasher, Amana refrigerator and microwave, Blanco sinks and Grohe fixtures await the gourmand. Everyone will want to congregate in this room! We know!

The game room has another full size refrigerator/ice maker for overflow and beverages, along with its own wet bar and microwave for making snacks while watching one of the three Large Panasonic flat screen TVs on the property! Tournament ping-pong tables
Challenge someone to a rousing Foosball game on a tournament table, or, play pool on a beautiful Brunswick slate table!

Ping Pong added ! Two competition tables in the lower garages are proving very popular....

The attached cottage, sometimes referred to as “the carriage house” also has a complete fully equipped kitchen for all dining needs. It is also equipped with a 42in Panasonic plasma TV. The great room is enhanced by a gas fireplace (for shoulder and winter seasons.) Another 42in Panasonic flat screen TV and true surround theater sound. Sink into deep leather furnishings and enjoy a movie or sporting event.

The bedrooms are spacious, with two master suites, one with its own Jacuzzi and accessible shower en suite. Two family suites accommodate even the largest assemblies. Everyone has a proper bed – no sofa-beds in this house. Wrap around, covered porches in the Southern tradition are a feature of each and every bedroom. The carriage house has a delightful private porch with ceiling fan, nestled into the treetops to enjoy soft Southern Nights.
