Description of 3837 Colonel Vanderhorst Circle, Mount Pleasant, SC 29466

Behind the gates of Dunes West, in prestigious Wagner Point, this grand southern plantation style home is nestled into an estate size lot of lush landscaping and sits on the banks of Toomer Creek. The exterior of the home is impressive, from the crushed tabby drive, to the standing seam metal roof, and it is evident that this home was built in a timeless fashion and designed with a classically elegant flare that will transcend trends and fads. An imposing front staircase welcomes guests onto the deep, rocking-chair ready front porch. Once inside, you'll find the lavish details are everywhere. Gorgeous millwork, including hardwood floors, multi-piece crown moulding, five inch baseboards, coffered ceilings, board-and-batten walls and eight foot solid core doors are found throughout. No detail was left unattended in this custom masterpiece. The welcoming foyer is flanked by a formal dining room to the left and a formal living room to the right. The dining room is generously sized to accommodate the largest of dining tables and features a stunning crystal chandelier. Just perfect for hosting holiday or celebratory dinners, you can envision family and friends gathered around the table as you propose a toast to the special occasion! To the right of the foyer, there is a formal living room for receiving guests and features a tucked away, private study complete with fireplace and finished in richly stained floor-to-ceiling board-and-batten walls. This room begs for you to strike up a fire and sip an after dinner bourbon on a cold evening. Beyond the foyer, a dramatic curved staircase will have you picturing everything from holiday garland strung along its wrought-iron balusters to stunning prom photos on its elegantly curved treads. This traditional home's floor plan gives way to an open and airy family room that boasts a two-story wall of windows, 18'+ ceilings and a brick surround fireplace with custom built-ins on both sides. The gorgeous floor-to-ceiling board-and-batten mantle competes with, but can't steal the focus from the breathtaking views of Toomer Creek. Ideal for entertaining, this home offers an easy flow into the casual dining area and the kitchen. A gourmet kitchen that will please the most discerning of home chefs, it is adorned with true professional grade appliances. A six burner dual fuel Wolf range with griddle and double oven sits below a custom cabinetry exhaust hood and pot filler faucet. Stainless steel appliances, including a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator as well as two sinks, and long expanses of granite countertops provide a sleek, modern edge while details such as tumbled tile backsplash and custom, staggered top cabinetry with glass doors provide an old-world elegant feel. There are conveniences for everyday living with a walk-in pantry and oversized laundry room just off of the kitchen. The mud room style laundry room offers a space for an extra refrigerator, a hidden washer and dryer area tucked out of sight behind custom cabinetry and a large utility sink. The long expanse of counter tops, along with the hidden appliances, makes it easy to utilize this area as a huge butlers pantry! In this home, entertaining will be a breeze! With just enough separation, the kitchen is of the caliber to accommodate caterers for large, elaborate parties yet still open enough to host informal gatherings. Friends can perch on a stool at the raised bar and sip wine while you effortlessly prepare the evening's treats! There is no shortage of space for parties as in addition to the formal dining spaces there is an L-shaped sun room along the back corner of the home. Embellished with shiplap walls, tongue-and-groove stained wood ceilings and ceramic tile, this beautiful area of the home offers sweeping marsh and water views while providing a casual place to dine and relax. A large screened-in porch provides an excellent location to sip your morning coffee while watching Egrets and Herons fish for the morning's breakfast in the water below. With tiled flooring, wood ceiling and bahama shutter, this outdoor living room will be your favorite place to relax and is accessible via the sun room, family room, and master retreat. When it is time to retire for the evening you'll gladly make your way to the private master retreat conveniently located on the main floor. As one would expect in a home of this stature, the master retreat is separated by a private hallway into its own wing and offers all of the expected luxuries and then some. The bedroom is situated on the back of the home to provide private access to the screened-in porch and take advantage of the spectacular water views. With so many windows and glass doors, the natural light is in abundance and highlights the impressive built-in wardrobes on either side of a beautiful granite surround fireplace. Imagine lounging in your private retreat, reading a book with the fire glowing gently in the background as you prepare for bed or waking each morning to the stunning water views! A luxury en-suite bath is located off of the private hall, providing a nice separation from the bedroom itself. The bath features a large, walk-in custom tiled shower, his-and-her double sink custom cabinet vanity with linen tower, private water closet and large jetted soaker tub below a bay window. A large walk-in closet completes the master retreat. Whether you opt to take the stairs or the three-stop elevator to the upper floors, you will continue to be impressed with the details in this home. On the second floor, off the open balcony style hallway, you will find four additional bedrooms. The secondary bedrooms are all generously sized and offer their own en-suite bathrooms. Each bathroom has its own style but all are finished in custom cabinetry, stone countertops and fixtures befitting a home of this distinction. One bedroom offers access to a private balcony and the awe-inspiring views of Toomer Creek. The third floor is a huge, open space with built-in storage benches and a large full bathroom. With so much space, it would be ideal as a secondary family room, playroom, teen retreat, game room, in home exercise studio, the ultimate man-cave or she-shed! The possibilities are endless and with this much room, it could serve multiple functions! There is a balcony located off the back of the room where bird watchers or nature enthusiasts would love to place a telescope and take in the area's wildlife! This home is an excellent example of the classic Lowcountry lifestyle ~ Elegant and refined, yet comfortable and welcoming with plenty of outdoor living space. In addition to the porches and balconies, this home offers a covered patio space with stone pavers, stained tongue-and-groove ceilings and graceful brick arches that frame stunning water views. Enjoy iced tea under the shade while watching the children and pets frolic on the professionally landscaped lawn (with room for a pool!) Better yet, stroll down to the rarely found deepwater dock with 16,000lb boat lift and floating dock. Wired for a generator and offering built-in deck seating, this dock affords you the ability to jump into your boat and be in the Wando within minutes so that fishing and other water sports are enjoyed at your convenience! In addition to the three car garage, there is a separate, conditioned workshop space, and a large storage area. Not included in the square footage is an unfinished, insurable, 1,500+ space that could be completed as a guest house or in-law suite. This home is truly a custom masterpiece and must be seen to be fully appreciated. Located in one of Mount Pleasant's premier gated communities, Dunes West offers an award winning golf course and club house, pools, tennis club, and neighborhood walking paths. Dunes West is conveniently located close to the beaches, shopping, dining, minutes from the new Roper St. Francis hospital and a short drive to the world class dining and shopping of historic downtown Charleston.
