IMAGINE A HOUSE UNITING everything you love about Coastal South Carolina in one unmatched location. Meticulously constructed just 15 years ago inside the exclusive gated (with a 24-hour guard) community called Inlet Harbour, direct oceanfront AND creekfront with boat access and a private deepwater dock. There is regularly a 55-footer on this dock. The boat does not convey.
This is one of only a handful such available oceanfront locations between Little River south to the Isle of Palms with private deepwater boat access. Within 15 minutes you can either be in the ocean heading toward the Gulf Stream or tying up to the Murrells Inlet Harbor Walk for cocktails and dinner.
In addition to the most ideal "lay of the land...and the water" and with underground utilities, this prestigious property boasts leaded glass over doors and transoms, tile flooring over the entire first living level, including foyer, family room, dining, kitchen, guest bedroom, full and half bath and office/study/or spare bedroom; and beaded-board ceilings in the family, dining and kitchen areas. Rising off the first level family room beautiful flooring are Plantation Shutters all over, pine tongue and groove walls leading up to 10-foot ceilings of beaded board and crown molding. Area rugs, recessed lighting and beautiful furnishings bring warmth to this first level.
Furnished? Yes, fully, and with all you see in these photos. A ground (enclosed garage with a new garage door, three showers and changing rooms) to top floor elevator (literally to the Master suite), will carry you to any level. The kitchen, with Corian counter tops and a six-burner Thermador gas range, ice-maker, hand-painted tiles, walk-in pantry and eat-in counter is enlarged by opening Anderson sliding doors onto the spacious oceanside screened-in porch covered up in ceiling fans, dining table, comfy top-of-the-line Lloyd Flanders wicker and a "Charleston Swing Bed, hand painted flooring and all leading to a boardwalk to the beach. Head upstairs along a beautiful wooden staircase with oriental runner, brass brackets and exquisite chandelier overhead. All hardwood flooring upstairs and tile in three full-baths.
The master bedroom has vaulted bead-board ceilings, ceiling fan and recessed lighting, king size bed and direct oceanfront views through many windows. You may never have to leave this bedroom to see the connection to gracious, salt-air outdoor living. The master bath? Pedestal tub/shower, two Kohler sinks and fixtures, Corian double vanity and again, oceanfront windows everywhere. Walk-in closet with built-in drawers and a large upstairs laundry with tile flooring, sink and rack to hang your damp clothes to dry.
And so what else? Locally famed home designer Fraser S. Wall. III and renowned builder, BEC Construction, Inc. have created a masterpiece to include a brick accented driveway, louvered garage and enormous storage areas with coded break-away walls, redwood railings and entrance-way to withstand the salty weather and all topped with an aluminum and architectural shingled roof.
What's not seen behind the walls? Stainless steel nails used to prevent rust and 2 x 6's instead of customary 2 x 4 boards. In Bar Harbor, Naples, Montank, Newport Beach or Southhampton, this oceanfront home, with its private deepwater mooring and access to the ocean by boat, would be worth millions more.
Now that you know a lot about this special kind of place, remember, the beach is all about the simple pleasures of life...the gathering of families, making memories or just doing nothing. Nothing at all. And the name of this property, appropriately called, "The Laughing Place".
