8 Intracoastal Court is dramatically poised on the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway in Charleston. This one-of-a-kind Isle of Palms residence is a combination of fine craftsmanship and easy waterfront living that blends sophisticated elegance and enduring beauty – all while surrounded by a spectacular waterfront environment.
This home is luxurious, boasts majestic views, and is a boater’s dream. Built in 1999 by the one of Charleston’s most renowned builders as their family’s personal residence, this 4,960 square-foot, five bedroom, five bathroom home, is inspired by the architecture of the Lowcountry and the Caribbean islands. Located within walking distance to the area’s premier golf courses, this home was built for entertaining and taking advantage of the spectacular sunset views. The waterfront pool, firepit, and grilling area are all part of the exterior custom features.
The home features many sophisticated design elements. This well-appointed home has details such reclaimed heart pine flooring, hand forged iron railings, custom cabinetry, natural coral floors from the Dominican Republic, and mahogany doors.
The main level features an open and inviting living area with plenty of natural light, media room, private office, gourmet kitchen, and fabulous views.
The kitchen features 17-foot ceilings with exposed antique heart pine beams, SubZero refrigerators, a Viking cooktop, and Bosch appliances – and a great vantage point to watch the passing boats.
Expansive windows throughout the house, coupled with sliding doors that lead to the outdoor porches, provide the opportunity to bring the outdoor setting in, while the pool and dock amenities are also ideal for entertaining.
The master floor is complete with a bedroom with a generous bathroom suite, dual walk-in closets, and great sunset views. Three en-suite guest bedrooms are also located on this level.
The third floor offers a flexible entertainment area (or future guest suite), complete with a wet bar, pool table, outstanding views, and an outside deck.
Additional amenities include a mudroom, laundry room, generous two-car garage, geothermal heating/cooling, solar-assisted hot water heating, and a reverse osmosis water system.
This magical setting is conveniently located to Wild Dunes Resort and only 20 minutes from historic downtown Charleston. This exceptional property is a destination unto itself – for the boating enthusiast, the social entertainer, or the beach lover or all three.
