It is updated with top of the line stainless appliances, including Bosch and Five Star dual ranges. A welcoming master suite and two guest rooms are located on the first level. French doors off these bedrooms lead to the essential room of any beach house-a large relaxing porch! Did we mention.. the heated swimming pool?At the Melrose Cottage, enjoy ocean breezes and watch your worries wither away! This home is two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean- and a short walk to one of the best beach accesses on the island. After a day in the surf, the professionally designed and landscaped backyard invites you to take an afternoon swim in the large heated swimming pool. The entire yard (1/2 acre) is fenced- the front having a charming white picket fence- the back with a solid wood fence and dense trees and shrubbery for privacy. Step back into an era that cannot be duplicated. Own a piece of Sullivans Island history that is above the cutting edge. Remodeling efforts by architect, Christopher Rose brought living up to todays modern standards. The charm of The Melrose Cottage landed it on the pages of "A House in the South."
