This is the most incredible Senior Officer's Row home to come on the market in years, where history and elegant island living meet in perfect balance. This army corp of engineers built home has been meticulously maintained and beautifully updated, while keeping true to its history. The large property, which has been featured on the cover of Southern Living, is located in the Fort Moultrie Historic District, with its beautiful avenue of Live Oak trees, the absolute favorite island neighborhood. The home has both ocean and marsh views, a large gunite pool with spa, mature landscaping with irrigation, and plenty of parking. The home itself still has all of the original finishes and details, such as the wrap-around porches, soaring 12 foot interior ceilings finished with extraordinary pressed tin, ornate crown molding, beautiful original fireplace mantles surrounding 5 working (wood-burning) fireplaces, a gorgeous slate roof, and antique heart of pine hardwood floors throughout the home. While all of the beautiful original finishes remain intact, the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated to modern day standards. There is porch access through French doors from almost every room, allowing ocean breezes to flow throughout the house as was intended in the original design. The main level has a grand wrap around porch, entry foyer, separate dining room, living room, office, kitchen, half bath, and a guest suite with a full bathroom. The side porch is screened for comfortable entertaining and dining. The gourmet kitchen features granite counters, custom cabinetry, island with bar stool seating, a wood beamed ceiling, brick fireplace, and stainless steel appliances, including a professional grade Viking stove. The 2nd floor includes the spacious ensuite master bedroom, an additional two bedrooms with bathrooms, a playroom, laundry room, and access to another screened porch, perfect for porch sleeping. The 3rd floor has been beautifully finished as a large ensuite bedroom with a steam shower, footed tub, custom cabinets, desk alcove, and access to two decks with views of both the ocean and marsh, making it the perfect second master or a mother-in-law suite. There is a concrete-floored basement that provides a great deal of storage. The beach access path is just a few steps away, the perfect family atmosphere for beach combing, surfing, and turtle watching. The Sand Dunes Club is one street over for swimming and other activities, tennis courts and park are a street behind, and the Sullivan's Island boat ramp is just a few blocks away. The neighborhood itself is simply terrific. Long-term rental opportunities are available for the new owner, and the home has been used for commercial endeavors, most recently in season one of Netflix Original, OBX. This home is a true opportunity to own a piece of history in the quiet yet cheerfully active Sullivan's Island setting, with its playground the Atlantic Ocean, the salt marshes, and downtown Charleston, only a few minutes away. Whether your love is sailing, fishing, enjoying the arts, or fine dining, this is a must see island home.
