This exquisite custom-built home overlooking Blounts Creek is truly a “one of a kind” home. It is situated on a large, waterfront peninsula that provides sweeping views of Blounts Creek. The extraordinary elevation of this 3.2 acre homesite is a rarity in this part of North Carolina . The home is situated well above the flood hazard area so therefore flood insurance is not a necessity. Waterfront homes in coastal North Carolina that do not require flood insurance are exceptionally hard to find. The wooded slopes roll gently to the shoreline of Blounts Creek and with over 500 feet of shoreline this property provides nearly complete privacy.
Upon entering this fine home you are met in the foyer with a towering 25 foot tall ceiling that is adorned with an antique, 18th century lead crystal chandelier that is simply breathtaking and is equipped with an “Aladdin Light Lift” system. A spiral staircase to the left invites you to the second floor. Hand-crafted oak treads and banisters complete the stunning effect of this majestic entrance. There is another 18th century lead crystal chandelier in the formal dining room that is a “must see”.
A Bose Surround Sound System is installed in the house with separate speakers available in each major room of the home as well as on the back deck. A Monitored Alarm System is also included. Both were installed by Smart Homes of Greenville.
The home has a master suite located on the first floor which includes magnificent features such as a wood-burning fireplace (gas logs installed), and French doors that open onto a large deck that overlooks the water. The master bathroom is vast. With a walk-in tiled shower, his and hers walk-in closets, and heated floors throughout, this is the type of comfort and luxury one would expect in a custom home of this quality. The antique, 18th century French white marble fireplace mantle in the master bedroom was acquired from a specialty dealer in New Orleans. To say this mantle is beautiful would be understatement.
There are two other fireplaces in the home. The 18th century French mantle over the fireplace in the main living room is a rare black marble piece acquired from another antique dealer in New Orleans and a custom built stone fireplace is in the family room.
The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor and complimented with a private full bath of their own. In total, there are four full baths, and two half-baths in the home.
The kitchen is completely stunning to behold, and designed for the homeowner that thoroughly enjoys their kitchen space. The layout is very spacious, and created to be both efficient and functional. Features any chef will appreciate include a double convection over, separate warming oven, smooth top electric cook top with convenient water supply, built-in side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, a disposal in both sinks, trash compactor, and a large walk-in pantry closet. The granite counter tops naturally compliment the custom-built cherry wood cabinetry found throughout the kitchen. The convenience features designed into these cabinets are too numerous to name. The floors are of easy to maintain solid tile.
For the unexpected power failures the home is fully equipped with a whole-house generator which is powered by the Generac Protector 36KW Standby Generator. This backup generator powers essential appliances and modern technologies during power outages, allowing homeowners and their families to continue living life comfortably and without interruption. This backup generator runs a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Protector Series home generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM, which can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
A finished bonus room over the garage provides an additional 645 square feet of recreational space that can be used as a home gym, billiard room, or many other possibilities. There is included in this area a small kitchenette with sink, ice maker, and microwave oven.
The home is heated and cooled with four separate split systems. The upstairs bedrooms are on a separate electric heat pump, as is the bonus room. The master suite is on its own HVAC which is propane powered. The balance of the downstairs living area is heated and cooled with the fourth system which is also propane. There are gas logs in all three fireplaces, although the fireplace in the master bedroom may burn wood if so desired.
An attached three car garage provides ample space for storage and a variety of hobby needs. The garage also includes a full bathroom!
As a bonus, there are two additional rooms on the second floor that are presently unfinished that could be finished at a future time. With a combined total of nearly 700 square feet, these are rooms that may be utilized as additional bedrooms, home gym/workout space, in-home theater, craft room, or numerous other possibilities. One room is 11.8 x 25 and the other measures 13.7 x 26.7. Currently these rooms provide invaluable storage space.
