About the Home
Beautiful custom waterfront home, nestled inside prestigious Southgate, exudes sophistication and timeless elegance. Built in 1993, this home has been meticulously maintained and has so much to offer. The home has a total living space of 4,395 square feet and there is a studio with an additional 427 square feet. The manicured lawn proudly displays beautiful flowering shrubs and trees such as azaleas, crepe myrtles, palms and dogwoods. The arbor, cascading with fragrant roses, overlooks the lake and is a beautiful addition to the yard.
Upon entering, you will notice the soaring ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and an understated elegance flowing throughout the home. The living room, adorned with an impressive dome ceiling and gas fireplace is the perfect spot for relaxing or entertaining family and friends. The kitchen comes equipped with a double oven, smooth surface cooktop, and boasts beautiful cabinetry and granite. For those who appreciate flexibility, there is a formal dining room which is currently used as a library and a butler's pantry with a wetbar. An ample "breakfast area" just off of the kitchen can be used for casual dining while you enjoy the breathtaking water views as multiple windows allow the natural sunlight to pour in. Right off of the breakfast area is the deck constructed of Brazilian hardwoods where you can take in those amazing Carolina sunsets. The primary suite is conveniently located on the main floor and has a lovely view of the lake with French doors that lead into the private bath where you will find a large shower and a jetted tub as well as a separate water closet. Another set of French doors open up to an expansive walk-in closet.
There are three spacious bedrooms upstairs. One of those bedrooms has its own private bathroom while the other two share a Jack and Jill bath. There is ample closet space in each bedroom and two attic entries for plenty of storage.
Downstairs is an entertainer's dream, complete with a great room and gas fireplace, sauna, bar area and pool table. This is the perfect place for parties or game nights! French doors lead out to a covered patio area where you can take in the breeze and unwind after a long day. There is even an in-law suite with a private bath that the current owners use as a sewing room. This is truly a one of a kind home.
This cozy, rustic studio is tucked away just outside the home and offers a perfect retreat with several useful options for the homeowner. Currently being used as a potting shed, this 427 square foot building is such a special feature with views of the lake and the flower gardens. With wood beams and an antique sink, the studio is as adorable as it is functional! Host painting parties, invite friends over for a Yoga session, garden with the kids or have a seat out on the covered porch and enjoy your favorite beverage. The possibilities are infinite. As an added bonus, the roof was replaced in June of 2023.
