Deep Water/Mid-Island - Located at the mouth of the cul-de-sac at the end of Dunbarton Drive, 11 Deepwater is very private with no through traffic. As you drive in to this shaded beautifully landscaped property, the first thing you see is a fountain in the center of the spacious circular drive. There is a custom double metal gate that can be closed to secure access. Upon entering the house, your view is immediately drawn through the floor to ceiling windows to the breathtaking view of the marsh, Dunbar creek and beyond. Because the back of the house faces westward, owners are afforded stunning sunsets as the sun lowers over the horizon. The house has an extremely unique lay out. The main living area includes a great room with 20 foot ceilings, a fireplace, floor to ceiling windows and a spiral staircase leading to the second floor. There is a formal dining room, a breakfast room and a totally renovated kitchen complete with an island, quartz counter tops, gas range, double ovens and under mounted sink. The pantry is essentially the length of an entire hallway. The primary suite is on one side of the living space. It includes an office with built in book cases, the bedroom with a sitting area, a walk through closet with a whole wall of built in drawers and cabinets, a built in dressing vanity, and the primary bath with double vanity, walk in shower and garden tub. There is a private screened porch off the primary suite that overlooks the back yard, dock and water. Above the main living area is the second floor which consists of a bedroom with en-suite bath, a sitting area overlooking the great room, and another multi purpose room with built in book cases that could serve as a second office, artist studio, play room or other special purpose. On the opposite side of the living space from the primary suite is a wing that includes a den, two bedrooms; each with an en-suite bath, and a sleeping loft that is accessed by a "library" type ladder. This wing also includes the laundry room complete with a sink, counter tops, and multiple storage cabinets.

There is plenty of storage for all types of outdoor equipment and leisure toys. Last, and definitely not least, is the patio and immaculate back yard with it's multiple colorful flower beds that lead out to the dock. As you take a stroll down the dock walkway, you travel over the gorgeous marsh and deep water Dunbar Creek opens up before you. You will see all types of gorgeous marine foliage, birds and other wildlife. The walk will end on the main dock where you can park your boat no matter what the tide because there is always at least eight feet of water, even at low tide. It is an easy and enjoyable boat ride up Dunbar Creek to Frederica River, the Intercoastal Waterway, and St Simons Sound. You can travel by boat to dinner, to view the fireworks on holidays or to see Driftwood Beach from a totally different angle. Because Dunbar Creek is not a thoroughfare, there is not a lot of boat traffic to cause a wake at your dock or disrupt the peace. 11 Deepwater has so many unique features and has been lovingly cared for by it's current owners. In 2020, the stucco was detailed and painted, The doors and windows had new weatherproofing done. The entire crawl space was encapsulated. This combined with proper sump pumps, de-humidifiers and a full membrane lining allows residents to enjoy the marsh without being unnecessarily damaged by it. Being on the west side of the island, the house is more sheltered from the path of storms and afforded more protection from storm surge by miles and miles of marsh. You must see this amazing property to fully appreciate all it has to offer both inside and out.
