Located next to the Revered Grounds of the Historic Ocean Forest Hotel and on .84 acres of lush landscaped property only one block from the ocean. This Landmark home offers everything you dream about and then some. Let's start with the location - is there anything better than Poinsett or Porcher Avenues? From every floor of this wonderful Estate home you can see the ocean's glitter. The grounds are full of twisted, beautiful shaded Oaks with topography unseen on the flat coastal areas. This home sits high at over 35 feet about sea level and enough room for a Basement! Not a room easy to find so close to the ocean. The circular driveway is great for guests dropping in, while the main drive offers parking for a lot of cars and even a secluded RV space next to the detached two car garage. The entire property is surrounded by a concrete privacy fence. along with fenced areas for pets or play. Once you step onto the porch you'll begin to feel the strength of this home's construction. Solid in every way and built without cutting corners. Each floor offers a wrapping porch or balcony in a very peaceful, shaded setting. As you swing open the beautiful, custom front doors the appointments of the home will cause you to catch your breath. Marble flooring, bullnosed edging and columns and arches dominate your sightline. The Grand Staircase is the centerpiece of the foyer and offers elegance to the entrance. The Great Room is off to the left, followed by the Dining Room and then into the Kitchen and Rotunda Kitchenette area. The views along these rooms are of the grounds or through the trees to the ocean. The Laundry Room and Powder Room complete the first floor, along with garage access and tons of storage. Just to the right of the Foyer is the Elevator, so let's take that down to the Basement! The fully finished basement has beautiful lighting, a wine cellar, a snack kitchen and the feature of the floor..a massive Theater and gaming room. There is also direct access to the garage from here in addition to the "hidden staircase" that takes you up to the foyer. Back into the elevator to the Second floor we find a front Library flooded with Natural light from three sides, along with a flex room/4th bedroom. This room can be used in a variety of ways including exercise room, executive study, or the extra bedroom. Around the overlook to the left you'll see one of the guests rooms, then the Owner's suite and spa area. The second guest room is also located on the 2nd floor. The owner's suite is huge with sitting areas, private balconies and beautiful appointments throughout. The details are exceptional here and every room has been well planned out. Even as you enter the Owner's bath area the corner shower was planned to capture a feeling of being in the outdoors! Your visit here will take some time, as you will want to absorb every room and every balcony, plus spending time walking the grounds is a must. This is one of the memorable properties along the Grand Strand and one that provides the highest level of pride during ownership. If you are seeking the truly exceptional and don't want the everyday small lot house on the beach, you must come see this home right away.
