There is no other property built to this standard on Folly! This masterfully built home was designed to be both hurricane resistant and environmentally conscious at its core. Situated to capture views of the gardens and surrounding Folly Beach landscape from every room, the house sits at an elevation of 21 ft. at mean sea level, on a lot that is one of the highest on the island. Built in 2008 by Roger Prevost, this house was built to exceed strict hurricane building codes. Construction details include Anderson 400 windows and doors with high impact glass, triple locking out-swing doors designed to keep elements out in the harshest condition, TJI floor system, and roof system is 5/8 plywood and shingled with a 45 year roof that is wind rated at 140 mph. Additionally, all exterior corners, sides, roof, porches and foundation are tied together with steel rods, boots and strapping that exceeds the international building code and FEMA regulations. Merging craftsmanship with many eco-conscious features, the heart of this home lies in the open living space and spacious, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen featuring 14' vaulted ceilings crafted with washed reclaimed wood and beams. Top of the line appliances including a Wolf gas stove with convection oven, Bosch dishwasher, Monogram refrigeration, and wet bar with ice maker and wine fridge. Custom Caesar-stone countertops, a large Fossil Stone island, and plentiful storage along with a cozy sitting area in the kitchen invites you to lounge with the French doors open or adjourn outside to the covered pavilion. The large master suite is on the main floor and includes a beautiful copper and nickel tub flanked by his and her vanities with Bronzino countertops. The large shower, featuring a Grohe Rain Shower with dual hand and fixed shower heads, tile and slate flooring, and a generous bench, make this shower truly divine. Across from the master is a study that's ideal for those that work from home or enjoy a quiet space to read and relax. This space can also work well as a second bedroom on the main floor. The interior of the house was painted with Benjamin Moore, No VOC paint, and flooring is recycled wood from a Springs Mill in the South Carolina upstate and finished with an oil-based No VOC color stain. On the second floor, there are two beautifully appointed guest rooms, one that includes a private ensuite bath, and the other with easy access to the hall bath. Additionally there is a second floor loft living area as well as a large all-purpose room with private access to the second level balcony space overlooking the pristine, zen-like back gardens, water feature and intimate seating areas. Spacious ground level garage includes bar area, outdoor shower and ample room for parking. This home has never been a vacation rental and is meticulously maintained from the luscious green grass to the serene and manicured backyard. The quiet peacefulness of this pristine Folly Beach home beckons you for a visit.
