Nestled into a park-like setting in the prestigious Riverside at Carolina Park, this stunning custom home exudes southern charm and refined style. Double stacked piazzas, awash in the soft glow of traditional gas lanterns, beckon you to sit a spell, sip a glass of tea and enjoy the view of egrets and herons fishing in the pond directly across the street.

Gorgeous hardwood floors and custom specialty millwork abound including crisp crown moulding, tall baseboards, column framed cased openings and distinguishing ceiling treatments. A casual elegance is achieved in this home's design plan through the use of high end fixtures and finishes all while remaining true to the coastal cottage feel with elements such as clean lines, a crisp neutral color scheme and perfectly placed rustic accents. The living area is spacious and features a focal point gas log fireplace with stone surround and custom mantle. With more than enough room to accommodate a large group, invite everyone over to watch the big game or gather around a roaring fire for family game night. The living area is open and flows seamlessly into the kitchen. The most discerning home chef will delight in the ultra stylish, yet timeless finishes found in the true gourmet kitchen. White, recessed panel shaker style custom cabinetry contrasts beautifully with the rich tones of the hardwood floors.
