Beautiful 5 Acre High Bluff Waterfront Estate Property With Expansive Marsh & River VIews
This 5 acre secluded waterfront estate sits on a high bluff with expansive water views. The gorgeous shingle and glass home features an open and airy floorplan, with 14 ft. ceilings, massive rooms, featuring large windows, which allow the eyes to wander out to the natural beauty that surrounds the house. The home was previously featured in a magazine for it's architectural beauty and has now been renovated by the current owners, who design part time. Their previous design project, a NYC loft, is often used for celebrity birthday parties, movie premiere after-parties, numerous photo-shoots, and is the set for the upcoming John Varvatos campaign And the same attention to detail and forward-thinking design is evident throughout this gorgeous home. There are 6 wood burning fireplaces, including one in the master bath, master bedroom, and in the gourmet/commercial kitchen, reclaimed wood floors, crown-moulding and trim, American Clay walls, and designer antique furnishings are just a few of the distinguishing features that set this home apart from the others in this area. There is a basement, which is unusual for houses in the low country, which is currently used as a wine cellar, There is also a fireplace in the basement, creating a cozy environment for intimate gatherings. A winding staircase in the master bath leads to a 3rd floor open-aired tower, ideal for meditation, or just a private tree-top space to relax and enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean and clean forest air.
If you picture yourself sitting on a screened in porch, sipping your favorite beverage, and gazing across the expansive water views, while being cooled by the sea breeze, this is the house for you. The house boasts 2 screened porches, with floor to ceiling screens, allowing for unobstructed views. One of the screened porches is off of the master bedroom, while the other is an extension of the living room, allowing the porch to also have 14 ft. ceilings. The home enjoys the sought after south eastern exposure, ideal for enjoying the prevailing south eastern sea breeze.
The house is surrounded by palm trees, live oaks, and tropical landscaping, all effortlessly watered by a 6 zone irrigations system, from the property’s well. A private dock allows for breathtaking views of the sunrises and sunsets, and is the perfect place to get closer to the dolphins that sometimes visit to snack on the local shrimp. This 5 acre private paradise is bordered by Heritage Preserve, a sacred 20 acre protected forest, that was once home to the Native Americans that lived on Coosaw Island. Nature and wildlife are abundant in this pristine forest setting that the house is nestled into. You will find yourself peacefully drifting asleep to the sounds of the singing forest.
A brick path from the back door leads to a massive brick fire-pit, which can be enjoyed year round. The intuitively designed house also features a separate 2 car garage, that has a private apartment above it (currently used as a gym), which can be used as a mother-in-law quarters, guest house, caretaker’s apartment, or even rented out for extra income.
With only being a few miles from historic downtown Beaufort, this slice of paradise is stunningly unique and it’s calming effect truly cannot be avoided by anyone who visits.

"After trying to sell my property for 9 months I asked Deb & Russ for their help. They came in and advised me on what needed to be done to better present my home on the market and managed the work too. They had my property sold within a month for more than what I was was asking as a "for sale by owner". Fantastic job!"
Juliet Filbey - lady's Island
"Unbelievable in this market! Deb and Russ helped us buy our home a couple of years ago and when it came time for us to sell we called them. They came in with their crew, performed their magic and sold our home in 2 days!!!!"

"The best part of my 12 acre waterfront property I bought wasn't even on the market but Russ advised we put it in the offer too and made the deal happen. Great job!"
Rhett & Ruth Baldwin - Judge Island

Property Improvement Help And Advice For Buyers.
We can often help buyers with ideas and cost estimates on changes to a property.
There is never an obligation to use our construction services when buying real estate. We offer ideas and professional construction advice as part of our real estate services so you can have all the information you need when buying property. Some clients choose to do the work themselves or use their own contractors. Of course our construction division is available for remodeling, additions and general construction services.
"Finding the perfect real estate property can be a challenge. My perception of the "perfect" property is one that has 80% of the the features you want or need and 20% you can change or live with. In other words...there really is no 100% perfect property but sometimes with a few changes you can make it your own to better fit your needs
A lot of properties that are put on the market for sale show very well and highlight their best attributes. However many real estate listings do not show well and a little (or sometimes a lot of) imagination is needed to bring out their best.
I always try to identify a property's one to three best attributes and enhance them as much as possible when putting a property on the market. It may be a view, the curb appeal, trees, or a certain architectural element. This also holds true when helping clients find a property. Many times a property's key features or benefit's are hidden or diminished. That is where I often find "hiddden value" that may not be priced into the property." Russ Fielden
