Extraordinary award-winning Greek Revival-Style home in I'On with double grand piazzas overlooking the peaceful Rookery Wildlife Refuge teaming with nature and its lake. The location of this immaculate home is away from busy streets, one of the most coveted locations with privacy, and ease of access from the front of the neighborhood. I'On Village and its restaurants and shops is a three-minute walk from the home. Walk to the exclusive I'On Club which includes a large tennis facility, Olympic sized pool, a new exercise room for classes, indoor/outdoor dining and three pools. The entire main floor of the home renovated in 2017, including the kitchen, living room (new chimney and fireplace) and dining room, with new wainscoting, moldings, windows, paint, shutters, etc. The statelyhome comprises three levels with gracious living space throughout. The RARE oversized two car garage has a side exit door and is accessed from the private driveway behind the home with no traffic! There are two more parking spaces in the driveway. The yard is a gardener's oasis with year-round color of specimen plantings. Enter the home from a beautiful brick stairway adorned with creeping fig and the scent of gardenias, to an elevated white-columned relaxing southern porch with fans overhead. Inside, the designer home welcomes you with high ceilings, beautiful moldings, a wood-burning fireplace with convenient gas starter, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and elegant décor. Just beyond is the dining room with built-in glass China cabinets above and enclosed storage below. The oversized fully equipped light-filled gourmet kitchen has newer Thermador appliances including a four-burner gas stove, large sub zero refrigerator, and easy-access freezer; granite countertops, tons of custom cabinets with over and under lighting; large island with storage beneath; microwave, dishwasher, and large sink with window above. You will feel right at home in the bright adjoining gathering room enveloped in morning light, a comfortable lounging and dining area, alongside an expansive wall of built-in shelving for all your special treasures and books. A custom wall-papered powder room completes this level. Upstairs, the third-level large master suite has private access to a larger front piazza to watch the sunset overlooking the peaceful Rookery. Brazilian cherry hardwoods, handsome moldings, beautiful streaming afternoon light and a windowed closet. The renovated master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and a stand-alone marble shower. New dual Moroccan sinks, Quartzite countertops and high-end fixtures installed in 2021. Separate water closet and ample storage closet as well. Two other bedrooms are also on this level with a shared bath, double sinks, tub/shower combo, large storage closet and bright light. The windowed laundry room is across where the new high-end LG washer and dryer will convey. Plenty of storage cabinets above as well as built-in hanging bar/shelves. The fourth bedroom(or office, mother-in-law suite, gym, or school room) is on the ground level and has a full bathroom with tub/shower combo and a closet. See floor plan in photos. Enjoy a stroll around East and West lakes or farther back, a nature walk alongside I'On's picturesque waterfront from the Creek Club. Outside of I'On you are minutes to all shopping and conveniences, as well as a short drive over the Ravenel Bridge to historic downtown Charleston. Many scenic beaches and golf courses are close-by as well. This is a special opportunity to own one of the neighborhood's most admired homes. Do not forget to stroll the garden with plantings of standard gardenias, an iconic ''High Fragrance'' camellia (and many other varieties), tea olives, roses, jasmine, hydrangeas, lemon and lime bushes, evergreen topiaries, a convenient iron and marble potting stand and storage under the house alongside the garden.
