This home at 547 Little Barley Lane in the Beresford Hall community, two miles from Daniel Island and ten miles from downtown Charleston, is a stunning combination of elegant and luxurious finishes and beautiful, natural, outdoor living spaces. The home is nestled in green pine and magnolia trees, and dual brick staircases, which curve around a central ivy covered fountain, lead up to the front door of the home.
Two-story wooden decks in the rear of the home, railed in white and set in place with white columns, provide access by stair to home’s backyard. This backyard living space has a Charleston-style garden with a brick walkway set against the lush landscape of the marsh. A private pool with a tiled deck is the ideal summer relaxation spot. The covered area of the first story deck would be a wonderful place for outdoor eating and entertaining, shaded from both sun and rain, with breath-taking views of Martin’s Creek, Beresford Creek and Wando River.
The interior of 547 Little Barley Lane is as elegant, light, and expansive as the land that surrounds it. The great room is the heart of the home and is accented by a two story coffered ceiling, light walls, Australian cypress flooring, subtle recessed lighting, a fireplace, and tall custom shelving. Facing the marsh is a rounded walled of two story windows that fill this large space with natural sunlight.
The kitchen, which flows seamlessly from this great room, has wooden floors, sleek stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and granite tops on the counters and island. Open to the kitchen is a cozy dining area with glass doors providing an abundance of sunlight and access to the back deck. The main living area of the home also includes a den and a more formal dining room.
Conveniently located on the main floor of the home, the master suite offers access to an outdoor deck, perfect for watching the warm colors of sunrises and sunsets in the Lowcountry. The bedroom itself has wooden floors and large windows framed in white that fill the space with soft, natural light. The en suite bathroom includes wooden floors that mirror the bedroom, dual vanities, a large clear glass shower, and a soaking tub. The space also has a large walk-in closet.
Two of the remaining four bedrooms on the second floor of the house have private sunning decks that overlook the creeks and marsh. One of these includes an en suite bath and a fireplace. These are versatile space that can be used for many functions, including as a media room as one of the rooms is currently being utilized. The remaining three bathrooms enjoy features such as granite countertops, a clear glass shower, and large mirrors. The home further includes an elevator shaft and a laundry room as well as a large unfinished area on the ground floor.
An approved dock permit accompanies the home, and the Beresford Hall community is a wonderful, active place to live. The community includes a deepwater dock and boat ramp, a community pool, a dog park, sports courts, designated green space, playgrounds, and a pavilion.
This home is ideal for anyone who seeks an elegant home with a lush, natural landscape in an inviting community in the Charleston area.
