This Paradise just awaits You!

Early spring, the crepe myrtles, grasses, and red fringe shrub are just sprouting.
Circular driveway through the front garden.
Stone stairs welcome and impress as you enter the front Portico.

 This home provides great architecture  deftly blending both modern and transitional/traditional styles which evelope you upon  arrival.   Mature, professionally-landscaped gardens with  flowering southern magnolia, dogwoods, crepe myrtles, hydrangeas, and azaleas invite you to pause and enjoy.  The circular driveway is lined with modern ornamental  grasses privately welcoming you to the generous stone paved front portico.

The Foyer is embellished with crown mouldings, low voltage lighting, and stone floor.
The Foyer also has views of the private Courtyard.

Follow the unique stone floors right into the oversized Foyer, with enticing glimpses of what awaits beyond.   Aha, a seemlessly designed and nicely appointed Powder Room, appearing as if it has always been there, was recently added off the Foyer for convenience.

Unique, mid-century modern windows provide a view into the private front Courtyard.
The Living Room is large enough to be called a Great Room, with plenty of low voltage lighting for your art and a glass feature wall includes a 60″ flat screen tv and green fireplace for a warm glow in the gentle winter.
Toward the front, a vine covered wall ensures privacy while providing a verdant view into the Courtyard.
Looking north from the Living Room into an area which could be used as a Breakfast Room, Study or Art Studio… with a view onto the Lanai with tropical foliage beyond.
The Dining Room has stone floors with Lanai, Pool, and Garden views.
Another Dining Room view…
The Dining Room also has an alcove, dimmable ambiance lighting and nice view into the Living Room and Courtyard.

The well detailed Great Room and Dining Room are large, free-flowing spaces with garden and pool views opening onto the 15′ by 27′ covered Lanai for Outdoor Living and Dining.  A bonus area off the Living Room can be used for a Breakfast Room, Study, or Art Studio, as you please.

However, your most delightful meals will likely be on the Lanai overlooking the beautiful pool.
The Lanai is large, with room for lounging and dining… ceiling fans whirring above, slate flooring below, and tropical beauty surrounding the languid pool waters.
These daybeds are from the Ft Lauderdale estate of Charles Deering’s (Vizcaya-Miami) brother. The current owner has moved them from Sarasota to Atlanta and New York, to finally arrive at their perfect home at 302 Early Street. They may be available for purchase by the new owner of this home.

The Chef’s Kitchen has all professional appliances, including two refrigerators, two freezers, two ice makers, two ovens, two dishwasher drawers and a large working island. Glassy views of the pool, granite walls, glass doored cabinetry and stone flooring make this kitchen unforgettable. Ample low voltage task lighting is offset by classic modern ambient light fixtures. In fact, lighting throughout the property is exquisite.  Of course, the cooking experience is heightened by the incredible views of the multi-terraces and pool.  As with all rooms on this level, the kitchen opens onto the lanai, terraces and pool oasis.

Up just 8 stairs are two large 3-windowed Bedrooms with ample closets, large designer Bath and the first generous Master Suite with crown mouldings, oversized walk-in closet, three large windows for abundance of natural light, and Master Bath One with oversized glass shower and glass countertops. This level has access to an enormous floored attic for storage.

Just 6 steps down from the main level are the two car Garage, Carport, and a multi-use suite of beautifully-designed rooms overlooking the pool and gardens.

This suite was custom designed by an architect for several uses, at your preference. You may choose it to be a luxurious Master Suite with Private Office– or, a Family Recreation Area and Pool Bath– or, a universal-accessible senior suite for your loved ones.

However you choose to use it, this area is comprised of:   1) an Office/Sitting Room with a wood burning fireplace and a modern Birch-paneled feature wall,  2) an oversized cathedral-ceilinged Master Bedroom or Family Room surrounded by glass doors opening to the sparkling pool, and,  3) a large luxurious bathroom with freestanding soaking tub, oversized glass shower with body sprays, coffered ceilings, multiple custom cabinetry/closets, and, 4) an unusually swank Laundry Room with granite counters, birch cabinetry, and stone flooring.

The oversized posh new Master Suite has beautiful blue-hued pool views, privacy available via 2″ Venetian blinds & turquoise draperies, a cathedral ceiling with ceiling fan and designer lighting, 42″ swivel tv hung from the ceiling, and custom crown mouldings.

The new luxurious Bath pampers you with an oversized soaking tub, aqua glass tile, square porcelain vessel sinks, wall mounted English chrome faucets and three mirrored medicine cabinets.
The sculptural soaking tub rests on stone flooring and is highlighted by a focal wall of glass subway tiles. No expense was spared, all walls are covered in large Italian porcelain tiles with coffered ceiling and designer lighting above.

However magnificent, architecturally, the home is, it is perhaps overwhelmed by the stunningly beautiful oasis of the completely private rear gardens and pool.

Towering, old-growth hardwood and coniferous trees provide a dramatic backdrop for a heavily landscaped yard with more than five types of palm trees, two exterior gated entrances, a copper-roofed pavillion with outdoor shower, multiple slate covered terraces all surrounding the lovely large organically-shaped pool with natural stone edging. Colorful flowers and singing birds are part of the ambiance.

Sparkling turquoise waters and tropical foliage.

Beyond the pool is a Pool House which is unfinished on the inside to complete to your taste as a Guest Suite, Art Studio, or Workshop.

This offering is not just a home, but a small private estate providing a gorgeous indoor-outdoor resort-style lifestyle situated in the very epicenter of Savannah.
