This stunning marsh view home, thoughtfully designed by Charleston native Elizabeth Allen, AIA, with Allen Design, Inc., is situated along peaceful Miller's Creek on the ''back beach'' on Sullivan's Island. Its orientation takes advantage of the views across the marsh and the prevailing wind patterns of the island making it a truly comfortable place to live and relax. The heart of the home is the double screen porches which are fed from every major room in the home. The custom crafted mahogany porch doors have a size and proportion reminiscent of the charm found in old Sullivan's Island architecture. The interior of the home combines the best of casual island living in the family room, breakfast room and open gourmet kitchen with the classical elegance desired in a formal living and dining room. The spacious master suite has views in three directions with an amazing built-in MTI jetted tub and fully tiled marble shower. The kitchen is well-appointed with Wolf appliances including a 48" gas range-top, double convection ovens, warming drawer, microwave, Sub-Zero 48" refrigerator, an under-counter wine cooler and a large Boos butcher block center island. A large home office on the first floor can also be used as a playroom, or as a home-schooling room. A second office on the upper floor makes this home perfect for working remotely. Spectacular Sullivan's Island's sunsets are yours to enjoy from the third floor Observatory deck. The adjacent Observatory includes a wet bar and mini frig. The expansive roof-top deck with unobstructed 360° views is just a few steps above the Observatory and is the perfect vantage point for the annual SI 4th of July fireworks show. The well-planned layout of this home makes it perfect for a family, is a wonderful home for entertaining, and is situated on the most peaceful and serene part of the island. Centrally located at Station 18 ½, direct beach access is a short walk or golf cart ride straight down Station 18 ½ to the lighthouse; the highly acclaimed SIES is just two stations away; and downtown SI with its many dining options is within an easy walk. And only a half block away is "The Dump" where you can launch your kayak or paddle board into Miller's Creek. This home is a must see!
