Description:

The setting for this one-of-a-kind residence is perfect – Governor’s Plantation feels like a ride through the English countryside with gentle hills and stately trees, right down to the wooden bridge at the entrance. Set your GPS for #413 and you’ll know right away that you’ve arrived. Think castle with a modern flavor and you’ll get the picture. Built of Queen Brick, the detail of the construction is not to be missed. The mortar work alone is reminiscent of long gone craftsmanship.

Clerestory windows present front and center and the portico and front door will make you smile. Note the detail work at the four gables and front courtyard and remember we haven’t gotten inside yet.

Designed and built by people passionate about quality and originality, this is a house for individuals who demand out-of-the-proverbial box living. Polished concrete floors with handcrafted inserts greet you at the threshold. The flow of the public rooms is open but each space is distinct. The lob-lolly pine beams in the dining room have their own pedigree and were debarked by hand with antique tools. Plan to gather here often with family and friends for meals that last long into the night as stories are exchanged and new memories created. A wet bar tucked in the corner is under the south wing stairwell while the powder room is tucked under the north wing stairwell.

A brick wall in the great room is home to a custom fireplace flanked by cabinetry to store the media equipment and a logbox to feed the flame when the weather turns cool again. Overlooking the backyard and preserve, the Florida room is a sunny place with its own wood-burning fireplace and a grill set in honed unpolished granite. The kitchen wraps around to a craft room for kids of all ages with a built-in banquette under a row of windows and easy access to a generous laundry room and the garages.

En-suite master is downstairs – a large room with expansive windows and built-ins, there are two closets and a private screened porch off the bath. Upstairs in the south wing is a media room for the younger crowd, dedicated office and en-suite bedroom with built-in loft bunk. In the north wing there’s a game room with cabinetry, two open bedrooms and a third bedroom all sharing the corner bathroom. Each bedroom has its own loft bunk bed and all the rooms have vaulted ceilings.

A putting green and curved patio out back are looking for action. Make the changes you desire and make it your own.
