This beach house has five bedrooms (four on the second floor, one on the third, loft on the fourth) with an elevator. The house is in immaculate condition, completed in November, 2003. There are hardwood floors throughout the house, beautiful kitchen cabinets and appliances with quartz countertops, wetbar with ice maker, two master bedrooms, 37 inch TV with Direct TV (five additional TVs as well), and a screened porch.
The kitchen, dining, great room and master bedroom are on the top floor and open up to a deck that has breathtaking views of the marshes and Harbor River. Two of the downstairs bedrooms open up to a screen porch with the same view. The screen porch has 2 outdoor daybeds for great afternoon naps!

Located in the private, gated community of Harbor Island, just 20 minutes from historic Beaufort SC. The home, at the end of a cul-de-sac, has a panoramic view in the rear of the marshes which are teeming with wildlife and the Harbor River.
To the front is a great view of the ocean. The rear deck is a great place to enjoy one of the most fantastic sunsets you will ever see. At the other end of the cul-de-sac is beach access to several miles of quiet, uncrowded beach on the Atlantic Ocean.
This smoke-free house has five bedrooms plus a loft and sleeps 13. There are two master bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a queen bed.

About the owner: This is the youngest of our four children. The other three are college age and beyond. We live in Columbia, SC. It takes 2 1/2 hours to get from our house in Columbia to our house in Harbor Island. Fortunately close enough for weekends away!
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island: We loved the combination of nature and family fun Harbor Island offers. The backside of our house is located on a beautiful salt marsh estuary teeming with wildlife. The other side is a beautiful un-crowded beach suited for walks, sunbathing, swimming, bocce ball, etc. The salty breezes and beautiful views give this place an intoxicating feeling that makes it tough to leave.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It starts with the spaciousness of the open floor plan and tall ceilings. There is plenty of room for the family to gather but also hideaways to enjoy quite time. The views offered on the decks are very special. The inverted floor plan (living area on the top floor) gave us even better views than we realized when we bought the lot. Sunset cocktails from the upstairs deck is a must do for us every afternoon. The two daybeds on the screen porch make for a good place to gather for conversation and enjoy the breeze.
