Brilliantly designed by Atlanta architect Norman Davenport Askins and impeccably built by Phillip Smith Construction in 2015, this custom Mediterranean style home is one of the finest to ever be constructed on the Isle of Palms. Inspired by the European seaside villas of the Renaissance era, this home is tastefully decorated and very well-finished in every detail. 120 Ocean Boulevard sets the highest bar of design and quality, where classic Mediterranean architecture meets Lowcountry oceanfront living at its best. Uniquely sited on a 1.45-acre ocean front lot, this 6,758 square foot, 5/6 bedroom, 5-bathroom home was constructed with handcrafted hard coat exterior stucco, a low-pitched Santa Fe clay tile roof, cast limestone entry steps and balustrades.
It also includes the highest quality UV tinted Kolbe windows and doors throughout. With a warm feeling of hospitality, the open floor plan offers easy circulation between gracious rooms adorned with hand finished interior Italian limestone and Marmorino plaster walls.
Upon entering the home, you are immediately drawn to the light filled living room with custom milled oak chevron floors that lead you to multiple sets of French doors that open to a beautiful loggia with incredible ocean views. The large kitchen island provides beveled marble surfaces coupled with an Italian Ilve gas cooktop and dual oven. There is an imported Italian Gullo brass and brushed stainless steel sink along with custom milled cabinets. Just off the kitchen is a covered limestone terrace with arches, showcasing one of the best ocean views in the entire Charleston area. From this unique perch are far reaching views of the Atlantic Ocean, Breach Inlet, Sullivan’s Island and the Morris Island lighthouse. With a well-equipped outdoor kitchen and seating for many, this outdoor space is simply the finest of its kind.
The large master bedroom with stunning ocean views also includes coved ceiling features, custom milled paneling, wainscoting and cornices. The master bath provides the highest quality marble and tile along with handcrafted his and her vanities. There is a large walk-in frameless shower with a brass rain shower head and a beautifully designed stained glass window.
