Newly renovated, Ground Floor easy access while still enjoying spectacular 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean. Professionally designed with a clean comfortable modern approach by Beaufort, SC designer Janis DiFiore, The goal of the design was to communicate the casual barefoot beach atmosphere the guest experiences when renting this villa. Gutting individual rooms to allow for an open plan and open communication, slip covering the furniture and covering the floor in woodgrain tile allow for ease while achieving the desired warm look. But the most harmonious vehicle of this expression was the use of butt jointed planks of wood for the walls and keeping the spectacular view of the ocean open from all rooms. Janis chose colors and finishes that are both bright and soothing to the eye as you walk from room to room. Generous high-end finishes, including custom Quartz counter tops in the kitchen, a fireplace surround of natural imported limestone made from seashell fossils, a dining chandelier handmade and imported from Italy, custom furniture and more! You will find a perfect fusion of modern and traditional décor as demonstrated in the dining room with a 3 panel antique whale drawing watching over you as you dine on modern comfortable white/stainless custom furniture. Soaring 10’ ceilings and rich crown moldings throughout complete the look. Result; the most often repeated comments made by visitors is the overwhelming feeling of “comfortable, soothing, modern and beachy”.
Main Living Area: With walls now removed, the space is impeccably designed for entertaining. The kitchen flows to the bar and dining area which in turns flows into the living room area. The planked walls are bathed in sea-foam green reminiscent of Positano and the Italian Mediterranean. The dining area provides comfortable seating for 6 in addition to the 3 stools at the breakfast bar. I love to entertain and have outfitted the kitchen with all that is needed. New Samsung Smart TV with 3D capabilities and sound bar await your enjoyment.
Master Suite: Enjoy a soft shade of sky blue walls to gently wake you in the morning and a feature wall with custom white planking and a white leather headboard for added comfort. There is a private door to the patio, and room darkening blinds in case you want to sleep in. Sunrises are spectacular over the ocean – and you can enjoy a view of the ocean without even getting out of bed! In case you need to work, there is a desk available with solid wifi. Also in the master is a Samsung flat screen TV mounted over the desk.
Master bath: with floor-to-ceiling custom tiling, grey custom field stone slab counters, custom cabinetry and a shower fit for a king including a tiled bench seat, rain shower, hand-held and 4 body jets. Added luxury of motion sensor lighting beneath natural onyx to softly glow upon entering the room in the middle of the night. 2 closets with luggage racks and plenty of hangers. Special bonus – you can enjoy a view of the ocean from inside the master shower!
Guest Suite: Has its own bathroom that is accessible directly from the guest bedroom or from the main living area. The bedroom has two twin beds and is decorated in warm tones featuring the turtles that reside on the Turtle Dunes property and has a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. The guest bedroom décor includes both modern and old with a very modern chair and antique boat oars on the wall. The guest bath has floor-to-ceiling tile in pretty beige tones with accents. There is custom cabinetry and quartz countertops at the sink. The tub area was redesigned for your comfort, to allow for starting your bath on one side that has easy access to the controls before stepping under the shower. There is also an easy access hand shower for convenience when bathing children.
Sofa Bed: A Queen bed is hidden beneath the living room sofa cushions. Linens provided. There is a room darkening shade on the living room sliding doors when this area is used for sleeping.
Laundry is equipped with new Full Size Samsung Washer & Dryer, a full size ironing board and quality iron. This is one of my favorite additions! To allow for more hot water when guests arrive from the beach for showers, I moved plumbing and found a creative location to add a new larger hot water heater.
Many extra touches are available for our guests to enjoy including board games and movie videos for all age groups, champagne glasses and special cooking/entertaining pieces. A blow dryer is provided in each bathroom. Plenty of towels and pillows for everyone. Internet and cable TV provided.
The patio is spacious and reasonably private on both sides with lounge style furniture and the best view of the ocean!
