Just off the coast of South Carolina, in the South Carolina Low Country lies the once untamed island first surveyed in 1663 by British Sea Capitan William Hilton. Nearly 350 years since Capitan Hilton stumbled upon the island while sailing north from Barbados; Hilton Head has grown to become one the nation’s top vacation spots. Whether it’s family fun or serious golf Hilton Head Island has something for everyone.
Just over the bridge from the main land is one of Hilton Head’s gems, Maison de Chenes. Located in the private enclave of Spanish Pointe Maison de Chenes is an elegant five bedroom, seven bath room, estate situated on a 2.3 acre double lot. The home’s, unique features begin with the ground that it is built on. Hilton Head Island has grown to become a much such after vacation spot, this demand makes a 2.3 acre lot almost impossible to find. A site with views makes this property truly a one of a kind.
The site is just the canvas for what is simply art made from bricks and mortar. This piece of art literally starts from the floors up, beginning with the floors re-milled from 18th century hardwoods. One might ask how do you top floors dating from the 1700s, how about a dining room ceiling that features 22 Karat Gold. Totally renovated in 2012 the home continues to pay tribute to history with the custom railings finished in Ford 1912 Model T Bronze paint.
Indoor amenities are only part of what makes Maison de Chenes such a special place. Outdoor living is part of the lure of the South Carolina Low Country. A full outdoor kitchen, 2 electric screened in porches, and a private saltwater pool and spa are only the beginning of outdoor living space. A 25 foot balcony overlooking the water and pool are makes for great entertaining space. Deep water access completes the island experience.
