Classic Lowcountry home in premier Ponds location (Active)
This home was built when The Ponds was introduced to Summerville as a high end custom home community. You’ll notice attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout that sets it apart from the current crop of quickly built tract homes. Crown mouldings, 10′ high ceilings, fully trimmed windows, and high end materials are present throughout this meticulously maintained home.
A good floorplan is one of the most important features in a great house. You’ll notice the well thought out sense of scale that makes every room feel like it’s perfectly suited to its purpose and never leaves you feeling cramped. The design also offers a layout perfectly suited for both formal entertaining and everyday living. No part of this home feels like a waste of space or an afterthought.
You’re initially greeted by an oversized, full width porch, deep enough to accommodate multiple furniture groupings. The front entry leads into a large central foyer. Wide plank, solid hardwood flooring in a light natural finish runs throughout the main floor living areas and brightens up every room. You’re immediately welcomed into the main Family Room. With a cozy fireplace and dramatic vaulted ceiling, this just might wind up being your favorite place to hang out.
At the heart of this home, you’ll find the kitchen. Honey stained Maple Shaker cabinets, bull nosed granite counters, dual sinks, and a Professional grade gas range with oversized vent hood make this a true chef’s kitchen. It has a classic U shaped layout with plenty of space around a center island that is accentuated with a rub through paint finish and beautiful butcher block top. The kitchen is flanked on one side by a formal Dining Room, made elegant with a nicely detailed beadboard wainscoting and a more casual oversized eat in area that’s perfect for everyday use.A downstairs Master bedroom suite provides separation from the rest of the house. The large bedroom also gives you direct outdoor access to the back screen porch through the sliding door. The generously sized master closet is upfitted with custom shelving, and the bathroom has a garden tub, separate custom tiled shower, honey colored maple vanity with dual sink granite counter, and a private W/C.
Upstairs, you’ll find two large bedrooms, each with dual closets, on either side of an open loft area overlooking the family room. Dormer niches in each room add character and give a feeling of lots of extra space. The centrally located upstairs shared bath has a smart layout which allows more than one person to use it at a time. The bonus room over the garage is the perfect place when you need a little separation from the main house. It’s large enough for almost any setup you could imagine. It has both a closet and a full bath and could easily be designated as a fifth bedroom or amazing home office.
120 Bateaux is situated in one of the best sections of this subdivision. Surrounded by some of the best homes in the neighborhood, this lot sits on the edge of one of the large lakes that draw buyers to the Ponds. A short walk through the woods in your own back yard gives you direct access to this amazing resource. Out front, you’ll find a large park, providing open space and separation from your neighbors, not to mention a perfectly manicured place for you and your children to use. At the rear of the house, your screened in porch overlooks a fully fenced in back yard. Looking at nothing but wooded area, you’ll feel plenty of privacy. The sellers have confirmed that there is adequate space to install a custom pool within the existing setbacks in the backyard.
