Sea Island house description

This magnificent, five bedroom Italian renaissance residence is a work of art. European builder Luciano Vicente created a masterpiece of imported marble, limestone, 200 year-old doors, ironwork, tile and plaster, based on plans by Sea Island architect Ed Cheshire. Vicente and his nine-man team brought their artistic sensibilities to Sea Island using centuries-old techniques to replicate the craftsmanship of the great cathederals he restores for the Vatican. The great room's ceiling is based on a church in Sintra, Portugal is composed of two-hundred ornate, individually cast plaster squares set into a plaster grid embellished with rosettes with back-lit illumination. The domed foyer ceiling was inspired by the Japanese embassy in Lisbon.

In March 2011, Barron’s named Sea Island #1 on their list of “Best Places for a Second Home,” over destinations like The Hampton's, Lake Tahoe, Maui and Aspen. While its beauty and range of lifestyles and luxury, as well as its status as a “power alley” of influential residents, were noted, Sea Island was rated highest for its value. Outside magazine’s Adventure Advisor chose St. Simons Island as a “Best Fall Beach Escape” in November 2012, because our sandy beaches are largely employ in the off season while temperatures are sill in the 70s, and fishing, surfing, and road biking are all possible. National Geographic Traveller included the Georgia Sea Islands, as its “99 Top Rated Places” in 2010. Speaking of golf, this is the perfect base for attending the PGA’s McGladrey Classic golf tournament held at Sea Island's fabled Seaside golf course.

You are just a few blocks from the Sea Island beach. You are also close to many daytime activities including sightseeing on historic Jekyll Island and adjacent St. Simons Island.

Sleeping accommodations include a luxurious master suite with private patio, pool and marble bathroom. At the top the grand staircase above the marble foyer are two very large and very elegant private suites, one with a king bed and the other with two queens, The other two spacious bedrooms are located in the West Wing,one has a king bed and the other has two twin beds.
