344 Bermuda Towne Row

Elegant four-bedroom home in Hibben community offers plenty of space both inside and out.

Step inside 344 Bermuda Towne Row, and the look is elegant yet practical.

The 3,500-square-foot home in Mount Pleasant showcases four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and a functional kitchen with cherry cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, gas cooktop and an island with granite countertops. Ceilings are more than 10-feet high, walls feature crown molding and wainscoting and floors are hardwood expect for carpeting primarily in bedrooms. The house is wired for sound via an entertainment system and has a big screen TV above the gas fireplace with granite surround in the living room.

The home’s asking price is $850,000.

“It’s got most of the bells and whistles,” says Tim Fraylick, the owner and a local builder who constructed the house five years ago.

Yet for all the interior perks, the home’s calling card is the outside. The lot is the largest on the street, situated among trees and is next to a large pond with fountain. Second-floor dormer windows face the avenue. Residents can sit out on the wraparound porch, which also has a cooking area in back. Siding is low maintenance fiber cement. In back is a detached two-car garage.

Home shoppers have shown interest in the property, says Clay Cunningham, the listing agent with Carolina One Real Estate. He says it’s a good fit for a professional with a family since the house has four bedrooms. “Some Boeing executive, doctors (at the new hospitals east of the Cooper), it’s perfect,” Cunningham says.

Along with the tasteful, luxurious feel, the house has other interesting features inside. Insulation is high-end spray foam, from the attic to the foundation. That’s kept monthly power bills down to the low $200s, Fraylick says. Connecting the kitchen to the dining room with coffered ceiling at the front of the home is a butler’s pantry. The right front room is a parlor. The master suite has a large bedroom and fashionable bathroom with jetted tub, separate shower and tiled floors.

Dormer windows were designed to be wider on the interior, so the space can be used more efficiently. Working with Cobb Architects, the builder was able to broaden the bedrooms as a result. A buyer can make changes, too. The porch is covered by not screened; buyers could screen it in if they chose, Cunningham says. There’s also an oversized laundry room that Fraylick’s wife uses for her interior design projects. “It could be made into an office,” Cunningham says.

Meanwhile, the house has an unfinished attic, accessible by stairs, that could be modeled into a nearly 500-square-foot bonus room.

Fraylick says the location is handy, just a short distance from Interstate 526. While he built the house, it’s the property that he most promotes. “The thing it’s got going for it,” Fraylick says, “is the lot.”

The home is in the Belle Hall community, which has a host of amenities including a swimming pool. Take Mathis Ferry Road off U.S. Highway 17 North. Turn left onto Whipple Road. Follow Whipple to the end, and turn left onto Long Point Road. Follow Long Point for about a mile and turn right on Belle Hall Parkway. Continue to Hibbens Grant Boulevard, and turn left. Take the first right on Bermuda Towne Row. The first house on the right is 344 Bermuda Towne Row.
