The definition of paradise: a place ideally suited to somebody, a place of perfect happiness. Usually hard to find, but we have it here in this 4th row from the ocean, 6 bedroom, and 6.5-bath, raised single home in trendy North Forest Beach.
A bubbling fountain welcomes you at the foot of the outside stairway, which leads up to a deck that starts at the front door and widens enough, as it wraps around to the side of the home, to encompass a swimming pool, an attached spa pool, both which can be heated for additional fees and a large sunning area with lounge chairs.
As you enter the foyer, the sun from the skylights will emphasize the beautiful tile flooring and the majestic height of the ceilings, but the tropics-inspired designer decorating will soon return your focus to the magnificent interior furnishings. The foyer opens to a unique octagon-shaped livingroom with a large window overlooking the pool, a stylish overstuffed seating group, and a built-in wall unit with bookshelves, TV/VCR/DVD, & CD system.
This room then flows to a spacious, state-of-the-art, and very open kitchen, which is defined by a large L-shaped dining/preparation counter with seven barstools. In addition, there are all stainless steel appliances, all granite countertops, a pantry closet, a center island, a bar cabinet, a desk, and a convenient powder room. Adjoining the kitchen is the formal dining room with a table that seats nine, two large windows with a tropical landscape view, and a slider door to the screened porch, which has an outdoor dining table for four and a door opening to the pool area.
A hallway off the kitchen leads to a laundry room and then on to bedroom #2 with a queen-size bed, an armoire with TV/VCR, a walk-in closet, and a private bath. The master bedroom, located at the end of a hallway off of the entry foyer, features a king-size bed, an armoire with TV/VCR/DVD, double closets, a bay window with a comfortable reading chair, and a spacious bath with double vanities, a spa tub, and a large walk-in shower. Across the hall is bedroom #3 with a queen-size bed, an armoire with TV/VCR, and a private bath with a classic pedestal sink.
An open sky lit stairway leads to the 2nd floor where 3 more bedrooms are reached from a balcony walkway. At the top of the stairway bedroom #4 is ideal for children or teenagers with its denim-covered twin beds, a loveseat and lounge chair situated for viewing the TV/VCR/DVD, a walk-in closet to hide the clutter, and a private bath. Bedroom #5 also has 2 twin beds, as well as a TV/VCR, and a private bath. Bedroom #6 is a 2nd master bedroom and features a king-size bed, an armoire with TV/VCR/DVD, a bay window, a walk-in closet, and a spacious bath with double vanities, a spa tub, and a large walk-in shower.
Now, if you gentlemen have stuck with our description thus far, we have saved the best for last. The raised style of the home allows for two garages at ground level, as well as an indoor, brick-lined, 3-HOLE MINIATURE GOLF COURSE! In addition, there is a double-wide driveway that will assure off-street parking for all of your guests.
Forest Beach stretches along the Atlantic Ocean between Shipyard and Sea Pines Plantations. Bike paths and neighborhod lanes on North and South Forest Beach eventually draw one to Coligny Plaza, the hub of the Forest Beach area. While competing with the natural beauty and lure of the beach, the plaza offers a variety of shopping, dining, and fun entertainment for the whole family.
