2785 Oak Manor Drive: EcoFriendly Home on the Wando River
Located in Dunes West, this eco-friendly custom built house at 2785 Oak Manor Drive is a luxurious home with a stunning marshfront location.

The elevated construction home was built in 2006 with special attention paid to make it EarthCraft certified. The EarthCraft certification is only given to those projects that are built for energy-, water- and resource-efficiency, durability, and superior indoor air quality – all key factors in achieving a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. The exterior was built using structural insulated panels (SIP) and HardiPlank siding so it as airtight as can be which cuts down on heating and cooling expenses. In addition to that, the owners also installed energy-efficient windows, an advanced heating and cooling system and additional insulation to further improve its efficiency. Appliances throughout the home are mostly EnergyStar which are specifically designed to help individuals save money and protect the climate through superior energy efficiency.
As if the all of the green features aren’t enough to get you in the door, 2785 Oak Manor Drive is simply stunning inside and has been designed with top-of the line finishes at every turn. As you enter, you will notice the gleaming Marmoleum flooring and the great natural light filtering in from abundant windows and doors. There is a small family room on this level along with two bedrooms and two baths. A screen porch runs the length of the home and is a great place to enjoy the water breezes with a good book. The second level, or main level, is home to the kitchen and living room and it is where you will find yourself spending much of your time. Neutral colors play up the bright natural light and the open floor plan is conducive for families and those who like to entertain. The living room has a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, surround sound and opens to the second-story porch overlooking the Wando. The gourmet kitchen blends seamlessly with the design and décor of the living room with abundant custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances and recycled glass counters. Other noticeable high-end features include hardwood flooring, tongue and groove walls, recessed lighting, and crown molding.
The master bedroom is the only bedroom located on the main level so you have space and privacy from others. The large master bedroom shares access to the spacious deck and you can take in views of the river from the room. The en suite master bath has a slate shower and Jacuzzi tub along with large closets and dual vanities. The top floor of the home has a bonus room with Travertine flooring. This large room is currently being used as on office but could be easily converted into an additional bedroom. It also has private access to a deck overlooking the Wando.
You also have the beauty of enjoying a two car garage with a workshop and an elevator to make getting from floor to floor easier. The lot itself has been landscaped with lush tropical vegetation including shrubs, ferns and Palmetto trees to create an outdoor oasis. A fire pit near the river is ideal for hosting friends on cool evenings and there is also an outdoor shower so you can rinse off after a day on the water. The Dunes West neighborhood itself is a great place to be given its convenient location near Isle of Palms and other areas of Mount Pleasant. Neighborhood amenities include premier golf courses, swimming pool, club house, Play Park, walking trails and more.
