Siberian oak floors, peaked metal roof and exacting shiplap wood interior spotlight traditional perks in a 4,018-square-foot Daniel Island home for sale — but that's just a glimpse.
The three-year-old house at 466 Island Park Drive trends modern as well: a Lutron Electronics automatic lighting system, automated climate controls on each floor, smart home system that adjusts broadcast signals from room to room, wine cellar holding up to 900 bottles and 20-foot trussed ceiling. Panoramic views mark the ipe (Brazilian walnut) back porch and second floor decks off bedrooms.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage calls the five bedroom and four-and-a-half bathroom residence — priced at $1,775,000 — a Southern contemporary home. "Our feelings are, there's not a detail left undone," says Jim Grady, affiliated sales associate with Coldwell Banker and listing agent. There's "a little bit of everything."
The 466 Island Park Drive property, located in the plush Daniel Island Park neighborhood, boasts fine views, as it is located on the second hole of the Rees Jones-designed Ralston Creek Golf Course. A screened-in back porch, touting a big-screen TV and outdoor kitchen, leads to the landscaped backyard. The property sits next to a vacant lot and across the street from a park.
"They situated the house to have as much privacy as possible," he says.
Design credits include high-end architect Jerry Dewitt of Dewitt & Associates in Wando and Daniel Island-based custom builder Carson Homes. The main-floor master retreat, which Grady refers to as a "private oasis," claims an adjoined office/reading room and spa-like bathroom with extended walk-in shower, Victoria and Albert soaking tub and a separate walk-in closet with jewelry drawer and stackable Whirlpool washer and dryer. Striking cabinets from William Pritchard of Ravenel appear throughout the house.
The Old Carolina Brick Co. see-through fireplace with elevated hearth and vaulted living room ceiling is the "striking centerpiece of the first floor," according to Coldwell Banker. The combination kitchen and dining room — "a gourmet's dream," Grady says — includes a central island with textured quartz countertop, farm house sinks, Wolf six-burner gas range with double convection ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator, built in microwave, ice maker and wine fridge. There also a hand forged raw steel range hood, hanging shelves and hidden features such as inserts, roll-out shelves and storage, he says.
"Just off the kitchen and dining room is an exquisite wine room fit for a sommelier," Grady says.
French doors and sliding pocket doors open and close off rooms, double mahogany front doors mark the entrance and the three-car extra organized three-car garage boasts specialized vacuums, epoxy floor and Monkey Bar hanging storage system.
Just off the garage inside the house are a mudroom with custom cubbyholes; laundry room with granite counter-tops; and spacious walk-in pantry.
Located on the second floor are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a media room. All sleeping quarters are large enough for king size beds. One of the bedrooms includes a private bathroom showcasing marble floors.
Meanwhile, the house boasts a second tier in-law suite with separate entrance sporting a bedroom, bath, living room, kitchenette and porch overlooking the course. "It's like a 'Mini-Me' of the regular house," Grady quips, referring to the tiny Austin Powers movie character.
According to Grady, the owners lived in Colorado and have a second home in western North Carolina. As a result, the Island Park home "integrates the Lowcountry and the mountains," he says, citing a contemporary look and rustic features such as a chandelier cupped with antlers.
A wide-ranging layout makes the home attractive to a number of buyer groups including room for empty nesters with adult children and grand kids to stay on visits, families with younger children enjoying a house with four bedrooms and a fifth upstairs room converted to recreation space; and parents with a teen-ager for instance who can reside in the guest suite, which also can be rented out.
"I think it's versatile. You can do enough on each floor," Grady says. "Southern grace and modern touches integrate seamlessly," he says.
“Every detail of this home is impeccably designed and maximizes the space of each room. The screened porch with integrated sound system and a spectacular view of the golf course provides another great space to relax or entertain,” Grady says.
