One of the most distinctive and original homes on Spring Island, the Tabby cottage, is on the market. This charming Low Country cottage is on a quiet lane with beautiful water and marsh views. This waterfront home will accommodate a large family, but is also cozy enough for two. With extensive use of glass windows, the home captures an uninterrupted 150' view of the marshes. Perfect for entertaining, the home boasts a great flow throughout, multiple access points to the outdoors and views, and an oyster pit for large gatherings. The original house has been renovated and extended over the years and provides ample living and entertaining space for any occasion. In the home, you will find a warm living room with pickled ceilings, a brick fireplace, large windows, built-in bookcases and glass doors that lead to a porch that extends the length of the house, complete with rockers and porch swings. A quaint kitchen in the center of the main house also doubles as a bar. There are four large bedrooms with ensuite baths, and a powder room off the living room. You will appreciate the beautiful heart pine and brick floors throughout, and pocket doors which maximize flexibility and privacy. A corridor of abundant windows and a discreet seating area connects the original house to the other living area. A great room forms the heart of the home, with more pickled ceilings, a fireplace, sizeable picture windows, and a dining room that can seat ten. The kitchen has more than enough room to cater to any large gathering. A clubby office with a full bath attached completes the downstairs. Upstairs, the master bedroom has great views of the marsh with an ensuite bathroom consisting of a soaking tub, steam shower, double sink vanity, heated towel rack, and his and her closets. The location is perfect-- just a short walk or bike ride to the central hub of Spring Island. With the proximity of the River House, Sports Complex, Nature Center, Stables and community docks, members of your family can enjoy their days as they please. Whatever you are looking for, whether its a large family home or an expansive one-bedroom cottage with a four-bedroom guest cottage, this versatile home will work for you. Take the time to see it.
