If you’re looking for a timeless beach home brimming with charm, take a look at Jimmy Dye’s listing at 2002 Gull Drive. Sitting at the end of a quiet street on Sullivans Island, this marsh front home offers amazing views, great outdoor living spaces and a spacious interior. As you pull up to the home, you will notice the expertly landscaped front yard which is outfitted with low-maintenance tropical vegetation. The elevated construction home has a garage on the ground floor as well as plenty of covered storage for your beach equipment. Outdoor living spaces include:
- An inviting wrap-around front porch which looks out over the front yard. The porch is accessible from the kitchen and foyer and also has private entrances to two of the guest bedrooms.
- A large back porch overlooking the marsh. This oversized porch offers some of the best views of the Intracoastal Waterway. It is accessible from the living room and master bedroom and has a grand staircase descending into the backyard. The yard abuts the marsh so it is a prime place to relax and watch native wildlife such as egrets, osprey and other coastal birds.
- A sunning deck. This private deck is located off the upstairs sitting area and offers great views of the waterway. On a clear day, you can see the nearby Ben Sawyer Bridge as well as the Ravenel Bridge.
In addition to the great outdoor living spaces, there is also much to love indoors at 2002 Gull Drive. The original section of the home was built in 1945 but has been tastefully updated. Original features such as hardwood floors, lighting fixtures and wood-paneled walls still remain but new features such as stainless steel appliances, contemporary baths and an elegant master bedroom suite make it appealing for today’s buyer. The home has a total of five bedrooms: four are located in the main house and one is located in the guest house. The detached guest house, located at the front of the property, originally served as the island’s post office and boasts a large, open bedroom, an efficiency kitchen and an updated bath. Two of the home’s other bedrooms have private entrances off of the porch (which is convenient for guests) and each has an en suite bathroom. A fourth bedroom is located on the second floor of the main home and also has a private bath. The master suite is a true highlight of the home and located on the first floor of the main home. With floor to ceiling windows overlooking the marsh and access to the back porch, it boasts some of the best views in the home. His and her walk-in closets and an elegantly appointed bath with dual vanities, a multi-person shower and soaking tub are some of the other highlights.
In addition to the abundance of bedrooms, the home is also rich with common entertaining areas. An updated galley kitchen, a marsh-facing living room, a formal dining room, a warm study and an upstairs sitting room are some of the highlights!
