A rare opportunity to enjoy gracious southern living at its finest, this lake-front custom home in Smythe Park has been under the same ownership for a decade and is full of special details. When the home was built, large oaks and palms were installed, giving the property an established feel. Brick columns at the front entrance are topped with authentic gas lanterns, and custom designed gates usher guests into the manicured grounds. A brick-edged bluestone walkway leads to ivy-covered brick stairs and an over sized front porch, where gas lanterns flicker during the evening cocktail hour. Enjoy expansive lake and park views from the double front porches, dining room, family room, kitchen and master bedroom. The Control4 system offers complete home automation with lighting controls and more! Cooking and entertaining are a dream in the large gourmet kitchen complete with Wolf, SubZero and Bosch appliances along with extensive roll-out shelves in the cabinetry. The space stays organized with a dedicated walk-in closet for large appliances and a large, custom-designed pantry. The spacious dining room features paneled walls and three-piece "coastal" crown molding along with huge glass-paned pocket doors that are easily tucked away. The family room is bright and cheerful with its shiplap wall, abundant windows and tall doors that open to the screened porch. The generous screened porch overlooks a lush backyard retreat with mature plantings, a brick privacy wall, custom designed wrought iron gates, large bluestone patio and outdoor kitchen with a built-in 48" Viking grill. The property has speakers for both the screened porch and outdoor patio, so you can create the perfect ambiance for every occasion. Back inside, a large mudroom with floor-to-ceiling cabinets, shelves and cubbies provides an organized space to transition from a busy day at work and school. There is a paneled bedroom downstairs with an adjacent bath that's perfect for guests. A huge playroom/media room/bonus room is just a few steps from the kitchen and, since it has its own full bathroom, can also be used as a fifth bedroom. Upstairs is the spacious master suite, two very large bedrooms with en-suite baths and a large, bright laundry room with cabinets, closet and sink. The master suite and front bedroom have access to a full upstairs porch, perfect for savoring a cup of coffee while taking in the majestic sunrises across the lake. All the baths (and the laundry room) have either marble or granite countertops. The master bathroom is spacious and elegant with imported marble countertops. The large soaking tub and generous walk-in shower are also completely surrounded in marble giving the entire master bath a spa-like feel. The garage is spacious and easily fits two large SUVs along with plenty of shelves and cabinets. Also, there is an enclosed storage area in the garage that is perfect for seasonal items, bikes and other sporting equipment. The driveway is brick-edged oyster shell and is long enough for additional cars or a game of half-court basketball! The entire home has extensive trim work and all the closets are custom-designed for maximum storage and organization. Large and numerous windows allow the house to feel bright even on overcast days. Additionally, this home features a lighting system where indoor and outdoor lighting scenes can be controlled with the touch of a button. Perhaps the best feature of this home is the location. Smythe Park is a special gathering place reminiscent of Colonial Lake in Historic Charleston. It is common to see residents fishing, kayaking or paddle boarding on the lake while groups meet in the mornings for invigorating outdoor exercise classes. Children (and adults) are often found playing football, soccer (and even golf) on the great lawn while our smaller residents enjoy playing at "Pirate Park." With its built-in grills and marked history trail, Smythe Park is a favorite for evening cookouts and sunset strolls.
