There's great flexibility in this updated one-level home featuring 2 separate home office spaces and abundant outdoor living ---
The U-shaped floor plan has been designed with the bedrooms gathered in one wing of the home. If you have a preference for the Master Suite to be separated from the rest of the bedrooms, the 23' x 20' Bonus Room provides a perfect opportunity to create a private oasis or second Master Suite.
The Study (or Bedroom 4), located just off the Foyer, is accessible via double doors and boasts a wall of floor-to-ceiling adjustable shelves and a deep closet with custom closet fittings. If your preference is for this to be a dedicated bedroom with an adjacent Full Bath, the nearby Powder Room (one of two) could be expanded to include a shower or tub/shower.
A second Home Office/Studio is semi-detached from the home - accessible through the Garage or via an outside entrance - allowing visitors without interfering with your private life and personal spaces. This spacious office or studio boasts a cathedral ceiling with skylights, hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry and custom bookcase-wrapped walls.
If the Bonus Room isn't re-imagined into a second Master, you'll LOVE the incredible size, durability and storage in this room. At 23' x 20', it has ceramic tile flooring, stained board & batten wainscoting and crown molding, miles of custom cabinetry with roll-out shelves below and adjustable wall shelves above. A snack pantry and wet bar serve this room. Located far from the Family Room and Bedrooms, noisy fun will not disturb the rest of the household.
Just off a broad and welcoming Foyer is the home's main gathering area - the Family Room, with hardwood flooring and soaring cathedral-ceiling stone fireplace flanked by triple French doors accessing the Screen Porch and Deck. At over 30' long, this room can easily be home to several activity areas.
The Kitchen has been updated, adding granite countertops, tumbled tile backsplash and all-new stainless steel appliances, including slide-in smooth-top range with hood, a second built-in wall oven with microwave above, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator with water & ice in the door. There is a phenomenal abundance of cabinetry and loads of roll-out shelving for storage, a butcher clock-topped center island, and a convenient granite-topped Desk.
The Breakfast Nook is wrapped with floor-to-ceiling windows and triple French door to the fenced backyard.
The Master Suite opens directly to a huge Deck that overlooks the backyard and in-ground swimming pool. Double doors lead to a skylit Dressing Area featuring His & Hers walk-in closets with custom closet fittings. Her vanity is extra-long and separated from His vanity. An oversized walk-in shower - with another skylight above - serves the Master Bath.
Two more Guest Bedrooms, each with direct access to a Full Bath, are just down the hallway.
Outdoor living areas abound - a 29' x 6' covered Front Porch overlooks a walled entry courtyard, in back is a 17' x 12' Screen Porch with a stained beadboard cathedral ceiling, 26' x 12' Deck and a large Patio encircling a cool and refreshing in-ground Swimming Pool for our 90+ degree Carolina summer days.
The backyard of this .68-acre cul-de-sac homesite is cedar-fenced. Extensive natural areas minimize yard maintenance.
The exterior of the home is brick accented cedar siding and the roof is 8 years new. The attached 2-car Garage is a generous 26' x 23'.
