Families in search of a new home in the Lowcountry just missed out on this recently sold 4,388 sq ft property! Located in the May River Forest community, this residence overlooks the tranquil marshes of the May River and is surrounded by majestic oak trees that provide the perfect amount of privacy.
Let’s take a look at this hidden gem and all the features that made it simply too good to pass up for its new owners!
From Greenleaf Road, follow the winding gravel driveway into the edges of this forest to find this charming three-story abode.
A long set of brick stairs awaits you, leading to the covered front porch with ample space for patio furniture–perfect for sitting back and taking in the beautiful greenery!
Upon entering the home on the main floor, one of the first features you’ll notice is the heart pine flooring that contrasts with the pristine white paneled walls and staircase.
Up the stairs to the upper level, you’ll find the spacious master bedroom suite, complete with a sitting area that offers views of the May River.
The master bath attached to the suite features elegant marble countertops, complemented by the marble walk-in shower. The shower itself has transom windows installed above for additional lighting.
Also on the upper level are two additional bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. These rooms can be accessed by the upstairs hall, which overlooks the living room below.
The office, also on this floor, is spacious and features built-in desks and shelving, making this at-home workspace both organized and visually appealing.
The home features a large vaulted living room that is perfect for relaxing or entertaining guests. The focal point of the space is a fireplace with built-in bookshelves that provide additional storage and surfaces for decorating. The space above the fireplace is wired for sound, ideal for setting up an entertainment system. Additional transom windows can be found along the edges of the room to allow plenty of natural light to filter in.
On the other side of the living room is the open dining area, which offers access to stunning views both from inside and on the back porch.
Speaking of stunning views–one step through the French doors onto the back porch is all you need to see the marsh and May River below!
Spend a warm Lowcountry afternoon reclining under the porch fans or stay toasty by the fireplace during cooler months–truly an outdoor space that can be enjoyed year-round!
On the lower level, you’ll find an extension of the outdoor living space, with an easily accessible whole-house generator.
The space actually extends underneath the home, with ample room for storing firewood, watercraft, and more. You could even convert part of the space into an outdoor kitchen!
A set of stairs on the side of the home will lead you back up to the main level to access the dining room, living room, and kitchen.
The kitchen features an elegant island, gas range, high-quality stainless steel appliances, and a wine cooler. The perfect place to convene and entertain guests!
On the other side of the home, you’ll find its spacious three-car garage that opens up to the rest of the lower level.
The lower level features a laundry and mudroom combo, along with a walk-in safe room, cleverly tucked away yet easy to access.
A set of stairs allows you to access the main level from below with entry through the dining room, but there is also a built-in 3-level elevator available for handicap access, right next to the walk-in wine cooler!
There is also an additional exit/entry point from the lower level near the elevator, with a door almost identical to the main one above.
The new owners of this property will not only get to enjoy all of the fabulous features it offers, but the amenities of the community as well. Besides having access to the marsh behind the home, residents can also visit the May River Golf Club, or stop by the neighborhood’s fitness center, pool, or tennis courts. They can even take a scenic walk down one of the nearby trails!
