2854 Maritime Forest Drive, Johns Island, SC
This unique custom home offers the low-country lifestyle with a design where craftsman meets mountain lodge both inside and out. From the framework of the front porch all the way through to the timbers and columns that frame the living area and the sun porch as well as the accents on the gables and garage doors, the design is thoughtful and purposeful. The interior follows suit with a walnut ceiling in the entryway, custom walnut built-ins, custom-finished walnut floors throughout, and a walnut island in the kitchen. This is complimented with shiplap and lighter cabinetry in various areas of the home as well to keep a perfect amount of coastal balance.The living room, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, embraces the woods behind the home with 6 glass doors along the entire back of the home that can be opened to the deck area to connect the outdoor space and the elevated pool to the indoor living space. There are 4 additional doors that open accordion-style leading out to the sun porch, which doubles as a screen porch or open air porch with retractable screens and retractable vinyl windows all controlled from a single remote control. Add to all of this remote-control, retractable blinds in the entire great room, and for the winter months the custom built-ins surround a gas fireplace (with remote) for more of the mountain home feel.
The beautiful, gourmet kitchen with stainless-steel Bosch Appliances, including a double oven and 6 burner gas cooktop, sits adjacent to a semi-formal dining area and a well-designed wet bar with custom cabinetry as well as granite and quartzite countertops, a wine fridge, and a small beverage fridge. These elements all share views and open space with the living room. There is an accordion-style kitchen window that opens to a walk-up bar on the screen porch as well.
Just off the kitchen you will find an expansive laundry room and pantry where the custom cabinetry and beautiful countertops continue. There is also a half bath across the way and a coat closet hidden with wooden barn doors.
The large, private primary bedroom is tucked away on the main floor. This suite is very spacious with an abundance of natural light and has a bath that will give you spa-feels. With porcelain tile throughout and granite shower walls, this bath has dual sinks, a built in makeup vanity, a large tub separate from the shower, and a separate water closet for the toilet. Last but not least, the walk in closet has custom cabinetry and shelving, a large island and two separate entrances.
As you travel upstairs you'll notice more of the craftsman style, high quality finishes with the walnut railings and wrought iron balusters, and the continuation of all the same styles on the second level. Upon reaching the top of the stairs you will find a loft-like space with both an office area with more custom cabinetry as well as a separate area that is currently outfitted with a day bed for extra sleeping space when you have visitors.
There is another ensuite-style bedroom adjacent to the loft space with its own private bathroom full of those same elements of style and quality with amazing tile work throughout and full glass enclosure on the shower.
Across on the other side of the home upstairs you will find another large bedroom with walnut floors, a walk-in closet, and an ensuite bath that shares a tub with an additional bath connected to the loft area.
On the ground level of the home you will find a conditioned garage with two dehumidifiers and an epoxy-coated floor that will hold up to 4 cars through three garage doors that can be controlled remotely from your phone. There is ample storage in addition to the space for cars as well.
The outdoor space, which was briefly mentioned as being very accessible and integrated into the home when all ten accordion-style doors are open, does not disappoint. With an elevated pool on the large deck overlooking a wooded area, private peacefulness is certainly the theme. If this outdoor living spanning the width of the home coupled with the three seasons porch with retractable screens and vinyl windows isn't enough, there is a fire pit just at the base of the back stairs from the deck. And what home near the river and beach would be complete unless it has an outdoor shower? This home does! This area is also easily accessible through the back door to the garage area. Again, low-country living at its finest.
