Imagine a time when gaslit grandeur defined the manor homes of the South. A time of grace and sophistication, when true craftsmanship filled every corner of a home with visual flair and homey comfort. When a home was a kingdom unto itself, a legacy to be passed on. It was a time of Southern grace and casual elegance, and it lives on at 5 Laurel Spring, a six-bedroom 7,472-square-foot masterpiece.
The dramatic entrance to this home, with its towering columns, lush gardens, and stunning brickwork, may evoke the manor homes of the Northeast. But once inside, the effect is one of pure Southern hospitality. This is a home with a foot planted in each, ushering forth the most sophisticated elements of unparalleled old-world craftsmanship and Southern living and combining them with breathtaking effect.
Begin among the lower floor’s main living spaces, which exult in detailed craftsmanship. Tall tray ceilings, custom crown moldings and lush heart of pine floors run throughout a grand living room and a formal dining room. That distinguished appeal continues in the grand game room, which marries a handcrafted old-world motif with modern sophistication including a full bar and walk-in wine cellar.
That sense of rich tradition tempered by contemporary convenience is perhaps best expressed in the stunning kitchen, where tall ceilings and custom cabinets revel in classical style, while state-of-the-art appliances anchor the space firmly in the present.
Main Pantry & Butler's Pantry
Naturally, it is the master suite where this dedication to privacy and luxury can be experienced at its finest. Sweeping marsh views define a space boasting a private fireplace, expansive his-and-hers closets and private access to a majestic rear balcony overlooking the water. The en suite simply dazzles, with its checkerboard tiles, wide double vanity, personal refrigerator, indulgent corner soaking tub and cavernous walk-in with steam shower.
A home this thoroughly impressive at every turn demands equal attention to comfort, and nowhere is this more exquisitely expressed than among the six bedrooms. All are located on the top story, and each exults in luxury and serenity thanks to high-end touches such as tall ceilings, custom crown molding, and spacious private baths. Getting between the ground floor and the living spaces is a breeze thanks to the dual-door elevator which services all floors of the house.
Outdoor living is a hallmark of great Southern homes, and 5 Laurel Spring represents the apex of this lifestyle. The wide pool deck winds among old-growth trees and palmettos, the sparkling waters of its swimming pool reflecting the glorious sunsets of the salt marshes and creeks beyond. Further along, a lengthy dock gives way to deep water access, and the promise of adventure among the Lowcountry’s waterways.
