The jaw-dropping views of the Wando River take your breath away the second you open the front door to 196 Wandolea Drive. On true deepwater, with a short dock, boat-lift, and the best feature of all; your very own white sandy beach. The attention to detail and level of care given to every inch of this home is apparent from the moment you walk in. Pull into the semi-circle driveway to a wrap-around front porch, gas lanterns, and floor-ceiling windows immediately invite you into the main living room that captures the essence of this picturesque property. Drive the boat to the yacht club for dinner and be home in time for sunset on the dock, paradise in Mt. Pleasant's coveted Hobcaw Point! The main living room features custom built-in bookcases on either side of the gas fireplace. There are sliding glass doors that lead to the large porch, one side screened and one open. The 10' ceilings let light flood into each room of this over 5,000 sq ft home. Just behind the chef's kitchen is a formal dining room built for the entertainer; with crown molding, a statement chandelier, and French doors leading to the front porch. The kitchen was renovated in 2019; granite countertops, paneled refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, a double oven, a large island, and a stunning breakfast room. Custom built-in 2003 with a copper roof, 196 Wandolea is a fortress. Between the 3/4" plywood on all interior walls, glued and screwed with drywall over plywood for hurricane sheer bracing, steel header beams, and motorized hurricane shutters for every window. Oh and the automatic mosquito misters, and sonitrol security... you're prepared for all that Mother Nature has in store. There is a commercial-grade, 3-stop OTIS elevator that will take you from the 8-car garage all the way to the second story! The second floor is home to 2-secondary bedrooms that share a jack-n-jill bathroom, laundry room with sink, the 5th bedroom is currently another guest room (no ensuite bath so could be office or flex space as well), and the master suite. The master suite features two large walk-in closets, his/ her sinks, a private water closet, and a soaking tub/ glass shower - and heated tile floor for those cold winter mornings. The main level includes a study with a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and French doors leading to the screened-in porch. Very easily renovated, and turned into a large master down - should you wish to do so! The heated/ cooled stairwell to the garage is home to a 350+ bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar at the base, right before the massive garage. On the backside of the home is another garage door; perfect for boating/ beach supplies, outdoor toys, lawn mower access, etc. The yard is absolutely gorgeous, with a fence, professional lighting, and plenty of space for a pool - although who needs a pool when you have 24/7 beach and river access. Enjoy nightly sunsets from the end of the 315 ft dock, with views of the Ravenel Bridge. It's worth seeing in person, trust me! And when you need to take the boat out of the water, cruise over to the Hobcaw yacht club landing for quick and easy removal. 196 Wandolea is something very special, and it's location is unparalleled. Hobcaw Point is just minutes from downtown Charleston, Sullivan's Island, the airport, and more. We look forward to showing you it in person soon.
