Welcome to 13 Abalone, a custom built home on a corner lot with easy beach access and views of the golf course. Located near the front gates of Wild Dunes, the home's location is super convenient to life inside and outside the gates. The home has a paver driveway and two wide garage doors with bays deep enough to accommodate extra cars, a golf cart or even a small boat. You may enter the home from the front or back steps or form inside the house via the elevator or interior staircase.The exterior of the home has cement siding, working shutters and stucco finish on the ground level. When entering the home from the front porch you walk into a beautiful, large, sunlit foyer finished with white shiplap and a wall of windows looking into the elevated pool. Two round windows on the front of the house give a nod to coastal architecture and provide beautiful natural light.
Turn to the right and walk into the entertaining spaces of the home, shiplap walls, custom mouldings, wood plank ceilings are all indicative of the outstanding craftsmanship used in building one of a kind custom home. Shiplap in these areas is currently stained for a traditional beach house look but could be painted to match the foyer. Both ways would be beautiful! The hardwood floors are traditional southern heart pine and perfect for a home on the coast.
The spacious living room has a gas burning fireplace, wine fridge and plenty of room for guests, this room has direct access to the screen porch which provides great flow for entertaining. The large dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and provides a golf course view through beautiful windows.
The kitchen is gorgeous with custom cabinetry, a double oven gas range with 6 burners and a griddle function. Clean up is a breeze with TWO dishwashers!!! Everyone can join in on the cooking with lots of granite counter space and a huge island workspace, the large deep farmhouse sink is located in front of a wall of windows overlooking the golf course making cleaning up a fun job. Off the kitchen is a large laundry room with shiplap walls, built in pantry space and extra cabinetry as well as a sink, and a door to the screen porch. Come in from the beach and drop those wet towels straight in the washer!!!
The pool area can be accessed from the screen porch, the foyer and the first floor owner's suite. This elevated pool will be perfect for adults and children alike to swim, cool off or sunbathe on the Ipe deck. The home's courtyard style shape affords views of the pool from many rooms.
