Welcome home to Oakville Road! This impressive single-story home sits on .85 of an acre and faces 700+ acres owned by the Nature Conservancy. For those with a love of history, this property originally served as a schoolhouse in the area. This stunning home infuses custom, high-end detail with the charm and original character of a 1940's cottage, which is evident as you pull up to the home and notice the natural patina of the metal roof, the freshly painted wood siding, cedar shutters and cedar shake siding accenting the front of the home. A large front porch, perfect for lowcountry summer evenings, welcomes you into the home.
Upon entering the home you will notice the gorgeous heart pine floors and beadboard, which are both original and continuous throughout the home. You simply don't find flooring like this in real estate these days and great attention to detail was taken in restoring them. The 9+ foot coffered ceilings are accented with beadboard (again, original to the home) and recessed lighting. You will notice the large, open concept living with large windows and exposed brick from one of the two original wood burning stoves that would have been used to keep the schoolhouse warm in years past. The gorgeous kitchen is open to the living and dining rooms and features a large island with room for seating, upgraded cabinetry, butcher block countertops, top of the line, stainless steel, Samsung appliances, a push button disposal and a commercial faucet. This is the perfect space for entertaining or enjoying a quiet evening at home.
You will find two of the home's bedrooms directly off the main living area and a hallway that leads to the powder room, an additional bedroom and the exquisite owner's suite.
The two bedrooms directly off the main living area nearly identical in size and each have remote control Hunter ceiling fans, large windows and large closets. These bedrooms share a Jack and Jill style bathroom that features a custom tiled shower and black and white penny tile flooring. A beautiful vanity is completed with quartz countertops and updated lighting.
Head through the hallway and you'll find a powder room that features marble tile, and updated vanity and lighting and a small hallway leading you to the home's third bedroom. This bedroom features a large closet and a private walk out to the backyard where you will find your new fire pit and large yard.
Come back into the hallway and you will enter the luxurious owner's suite which features its own en suite bathroom, complete with a mirrored double vanity with quartz countertops, custom tile, a clawfoot tub, an oversized shower and a massive, custom walk-in closet with separate space for a stackable washer and dryer. Above the clawfoot tub you will notice two beams that were restored from one of the oldest structures on Sullivan's Island. The master bedroom is sizable and features shiplap original to the home, built-in adjustable shelving, exposed brick, a 72' Fanimation ceiling fan and large windows that provide for lots of natural light.
This peaceful property has it all. Why purchase builder grade construction on a small lot when you can have upscale, custom finishes on almost an acre, and without paying HOA dues? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and an absolute must see.
