Nestled on a private 7.04 acre lot, this stunning custom-build home at 1021 Hughes Road evokes the spirit of the Lowcountry with a wraparound front porch, manicured landscaping and sweeping views of the marsh. The striking facade is accented by brick detailing, a red metal roof and a wood and glass front door. The home was designed to make the most of the views and you will notice the high level of craftsmanship and finish. Hardwood floors, detailed crown molding, wainscoting, built-in bookshelves and architectural details such as tray ceilings and columns give the home a sense of understated grandeur.
Upon entering, you will be greeted by the two-story foyer which gives way to a formal dining room on one side and a study on the other. The main living spaces–the eat-in kitchen and great room–are located in the back of the home and overlook the marsh. Soaring two-story ceilings, built-in bookshelves and a fireplace define the great room with a wall of windows overlooking the backyard. Opening from the great room is the stunning eat-in kitchen. The space is currently being used as a secondary living space but could easily double as a casual dining room. Shiplap accents, dark wood cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances and a center island are some of the highlights of the kitchen.
The master bedroom is also located on the main floor. The sunny bedroom is accented by a tray ceiling and hardwood floors and has an en suite bathroom with a soaking tub, tiled shower, dual vanities and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms. Two bedrooms share access to a hallway full bath while the third bedroom has an en suite bath. On the ground floor of the home is an additional living space which includes a bar, a living room, a bedroom and a full bath.
Another attractive feature of the home is its abundance of outdoor living spaces. In addition to the wraparound front porch, there is also a large screened porch, equipped with ceiling fans and a vaulted ceiling, that overlooks the backyard and marsh. A newly added private pool is the perfect place to cool off during the warm summer months. A retractable cover allows for easy upkeep during the winter months while the large pool deck provides an ideal location to soak up the sun. Just beyond the manicured lawn is the marsh so you can enjoy Lowcountry views from anywhere in the backyard.
The Bulow Plantation neighborhood offers numerous amenities including a community dock and a neighborhood barn which can be used for parties and events. There are over 80 acres of common land to enjoy which feature trails and wildlife fields.
