Located on three private acres in Loris, South Carolina -- a favored locale for sprawling estates and primed for southern country iconicism -- this true southern charmer boasts a list of breathtaking features and upgrades as plentiful as the graveled driveway is long. Leading to the stone, brick, and iron gated entrance, established landscaping protect and shroud the residence within. As the gates open, the storied residence preens like a peacock as its palatial elevation presents itself to the unprepared and unsuspecting voyeur. A circular driveway gracefully surrenders you under the shaded reprieve of the multi-vehicle carport. Smooth, curved archways and classic pillars frame the farmer's porch and entrance, adding dimension and character to the already stunning, welcoming introduction to this home. Whether you feel drawn to explore the estate's grounds or encouraged to escape into the inner sanctuary, your decision will prove fruitful and wise. Brick, stone, and wood architectural details lie in wait as they prepare to riot your senses. Crossing the threshold into the grand foyer, gleaming hardwood floors, wide arched entryways, extensive crown molding, and cathedral ceilings open up and draw you in. The formal dining room and first common living area whet your palate with awe-inspiring details, from the tray and coffered ceilings with recessed lighting to the dual-sided gas fireplace and nearly-panoramic views of your grounds. The heart-of-the -home is sure to render you speechless! A cavernous gourmet chef's kitchen overlooks the three common living areas and proffers abundant, elegant, and want-for-nothing amenities, including professional-grade stainless steel appliances (think: Bosch induction cooktop, in-wall double ovens, a warming drawer, and commercial sized refrigerator and freezer), ample cabinetry, walk-in pantry storage, granite countertops, a work island, and functional, working breakfast bar with seating for several. The master bedroom creates a spa-like sanctuary, with a gas fireplace, private Carolina sitting room, and an ensuite master bath with elevated dual-sink vanities, jetted garden tub, a glass- and tile-encased steam shower, and a walk-in closet. Throughout this home, you'll find four gas fireplaces (including the outdoor one), a two-level media room with theater-style seating and surround sound, guest bedrooms with ensuite baths, three common living areas (including a sunken living room). You may find yourself surprised at how the outdoor grounds are even able to rival the interiors, with built-in area for grilling and entertaining, multiple covered terraces and balconies, outdoor shower, an electrified horse pen with a small barn, and spacious 3 car garage. Lake-front views are pristine and bountiful, whether your viewing from your home or the surrounding grounds. This home was built in 1988 and renovated in 2008. Explore virtually endless opportunities for this estate to accommodate your lifestyle, whether you need a lot of square footage or land that will allow you to have animals and privacy. Your new home is located less than 10 minutes from Seacoast Medical Center and approximately 30 minutes from the beach, entertainment, restaurants and more!
