This custom-built, Caribbean-inspired beauty is unlike anything seen before in I'On, an award-winning Mount Pleasant neighborhood just minutes to downtown Charleston. Inspired by old houses and traditional materials, 44 Montrose Road is the collaboration of renowned designers Andrew Gould and George Holt. The walls of the home are solid masonry with stucco applied directly to the concrete block. The exterior facade is reminiscent of French Provincial houses of the Caribbean, with its tall French doors, full-length exterior shutters and huge roof with dormer windows. The Roman-style courtyard, with a fountain and koi pond, provides a private space for enjoying the outdoors. The foyer is striking with black and white marble tile floors and is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms, each with their own fireplace. The large, bright "conservatory" or sunroom overlooks the courtyard. The kitchen also overlooks the courtyard and features white cabinets, marble counters and Sub-Zero, Miele and Wolf appliances. Past the kitchen is an office/den with built-in shelving. The first floor master suite has French doors leading out onto the courtyard and the master bath features double sinks, a vanity counter and marble countertops, floors and shower and surround around the tub. The laundry room and generous storage closet complete the first floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms with sloped ceilings and dormer windows that share a hall bath, as well as another room that could be a second office or exercise room. A small Byzantine-inspired "chapel" with vaulted ceiling and triple arched window could be used as a playroom or art studio. The home offers a one-car attached garage as well as plenty of off-street parking. The home operates on a tankless water heater and the HVAC systems have been recently replaced. I'On offers walking trails, two lakes, a boat launch as well as the member's only I'On Club, featuring two pools and seven tennis courts as well as a workout facility. Buyer pays .15% of the sales price as a transfer fee, Seller pays .1% of sale price as transfer fee.
