1190 Sea Eagle Watch

In the past decade and a half, Dexter and Renee Wilson watched their two kids grow up in the upscale, four-bedroom house they built on water in Seaside Estates.

The youngsters are grown and have landed places of their own to live. In the meantime, the Wilsons placed the 2,770-square-foot James Island house on the market for $629,900.

Their agent, Terry Seabrook of The Space Co., believes the well-maintained home would be an ideal spot for parents and children today, just as it was in 2000 when the couple moved in.

“They raised their family in this house. It’s a little big for a couple,” she says.

Marked with brilliant salmon-colored siding, the three-level house sports a manicured lawn and looks out on a small, pristine lake at the entrance to the fashionable neighborhood.

“It’s right on the pond,” Seabrook says. There are “beautiful views” from bedroom windows and a screened-in porch.

The secluded subdivision sports a community dock and boat landing on sprawling Clark Sound, which in turn provides access to Charleston Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.

In a recent tour, Dexter Wilson pointed out highlights that he and wife Renee incorporated in the house, constructed at the turn of the 21st century. Among them, the property showcases a formal living room as well as cozy family room on the pond side that opens to the enclosed porch and then to an open deck and stairs to the back yard.

Columns mark the entrance to the house, which is atop a set of front stairs leading to an extended deck.

The high-end kitchen sits toward the back of the house. Highlights include an open layout; plenty of cabinet space; pantry; built in stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave; and black-exterior oven.

Oak floors dominate the main floor, which also has tile in the half-bath and kitchen.

The ground level touts a three-car garage with two bays and a separate “man cave,” Wilson says, with den, half-bath and office. It’s reachable from stairs off the kitchen. The space could be used as a guest suite for a family member or people visiting, Seabrook says.

A door leads out to the pond side. The house sports a “wraparound” yard with well-groomed front lawn, larger-than-normal grassy areas on the sides and a moderate-sized back yard.

In her listing, Seabrook spotlights the charm and luxury of 1190 Sea Eagle Watch.

She cites the “beautiful pond lot,” noting how the property’s been well maintained and freshly painted inside and out.

The house sports standout hardwood and tile floors; the formal living and dining rooms; family room with bar and entertainment center; and the kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances. There’s also a laundry room and half bath on the main, second level. The screened porch and deck with sight of the pond also connect to the main floor.

Upstairs are the four spread-out bedrooms and two full baths, including a Jack and Jill linking two guest suites. The top level is carpeted except for hardwoods in the master bedroom. A large “en suite” bathroom counts a water closet, double vanities, jetted tub and oversized shower, Seabrook says in the listing.

The finished first floor — which showcases a den with French doors, office, half bath and pond view — isn’t included in the square footage, she says. The garage has ample space for storage.

The house stands near the entrance to Seaside Estates. Heading south, take the James Island connector to Folly Road. Turn left on Folly and continue for three miles to Grimball Road. Make a left and go about a mile. Steer left on Secessionville Road and then turn right on Seaside Plantation Road. Proceed a mile and the road merges with Sea Eagle Watch. Ahead on the left is 1190 Sea Eagle Watch.
