8 Duck Pen Court; Okatie, SC 29909
Standing sentinel to a beautiful two story home on the banks of the Chechessee Creek, two buildings – a guest house and a garage flank the main residence to form a family compound which fits perfectly on its 1.03 acre site. Entering the home, the great room sets the tone. High ceilings, lots of light, warm reclaimed heart pine floors, old brick in the fireplace surround all contribute to the home’s simple charm and casual elegance. One wing of the home contains a sumptuous master suite and just steps away, a connecting “morning kitchen” and a pine paneled office with an unobstructed view of the river. Upstairs, a luxurious guest suite has a sitting room with a fireplace and a bedroom and bath. Both the bedroom and sitting room have access to a large outdoor deck which offers stunning views of the river and the marsh below. The beautiful kitchen has a cozy breakfast nook and a comfortable and inviting keeping room which also has a fireplace. Adjoining the kitchen are the laundry, pantry, another office and a mud room entry. A covered walkway connects the main residence with the garage. On the view side of the residence, a large screened porch provides an outdoor living room which functions equally well for overflow entertaining space. Outside a brick patio with room for a grill sits midway between the home and the property’s deepwater shared dock. A further advantage is that many of the Club’s amenities are within walking distance of the home making it a wonderful choice for active families.
