Welcome to “Windward” and halcyon days as you enjoy the year round exotic birds attracted by the abundant flowering gardens and fountains which surround the house. This Williamsburg style house boasts an enviable frontage which is offset by many beautiful old live oaks amid a sprawling landscape which is nestled in the back close to a lovely pond on the third tee-box at Sea Palms’ championship golf course. Brick walkways lead to two front porches which lend a touch of the hospitable past to this charming home. This traditional style home also features many historic building treasures such as being custom-built with care with old growth timbers from the unusually large off ground construction to the sturdy roof. The fireplace was built with old brick and boasts double flues, and a finely built chimney and hearth which is six feet in length, perfect for a yule log or simply to enjoy on chilly nights. The living area, kitchen and hall are constructed with rare long-leaf pine floors in mint condition. There are windows and doors across the entire expanse to afford the incredible views and open to the right side of the house to an newly constructed deck and a cozy screened-in porch for those peaceful evenings when cicadas and tree frogs serenade you and your loved ones. On the main floor there are 2 bdrms/2.5 Baths. The master suite has a wall safe in the dressing room and outdoor views adjoining the spacious sunroom creates a gracious and livable home. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs with a double sink full bath and a cedar lined closet and attic space access from closet. There are two more closets upstairs as well. The kitchen has a custom made butcher block table with bottom shelf, a large double door pantry, custom lighting, high grade cabinetry, quartz countertops and double ovens. The electric stovetop could easily be converted to natural gas. In the separate laundry room there are multiple cabinets on both sides of the room and includes a half bath with a window. It is entered from the garage or the front service alcove entrance. The dryer runs on natural gas as does the hot water heater on that end of the house. There is an electric hot water heater for the main floor full baths. The two air conditioning units are only a few years old as is the Generac generator. The garage is spacious with a relatively new garage door and has a work area and sink which is near the door which opens to a covered area for either a potting shed or work area which includes fenced privacy for garbage/recycling containers. Black mountain slate paths on each side of home allow for easy entrance to and from house. There is a brick patio just outside the kitchen area and a natural gas grill. Skylights in the large, tiled sunroom creates an indoor/outdoor feel opening to a side garden which is surrounded with azaleas and camellias. At its center is a rose garden with a “Rebecca at the Well’ running fountain. There are two concrete benches beneath the George Tabor azaleas. The garden is entirely fenced with two gates. This allows safety for pets and has a doghouse with porch that matches the main house. A star jasmine covered arbor graces the front gate flanked by yew hedges. Parking on the pebble driveway allows ingress/egress and this area is also bordered by camellias, azaleas with outdoor lighting and an impressive welcoming pineapple fountain. There are at least seven mature sago palms in this area along with laburnum, oleanders and ligustrum for year round beauty and scent. The entire area of lawns and gardens are watered by an irrigation system serviced by an artesian well.
