Welcome to one of I’On’s most iconic homes, a Classic Charleston design situated on a private corner lot in the award-winning I’On community with wrap-around porches with Westlake views. A meticulously manicured & lush landscape with meandering paths & gardens behind ivy-covered brick privacy walls with commanding architectural elements. A welcoming brick staircase greets you with wrought iron railings and stately columns which frame the scenery from over eight hundred square feet of porch spaces. This home was a beautiful collaboration between the current/original owners, locally renowned architect & builder Neal van Dalen, and Chris Hulsey of Headden & Hulsey, both known for their exquisite designs and superior construction. The handsome mahogany front-door with arched transom windows & sidelights greets visitors with copper gas lanterns and gives you the anticipation of what lies beyond the front door.
Inside you will find a bright and light-filled open floor plan but still provides private spaces tucked throughout the home. Once inside, to the right of the foyer is the formal dining room that includes a double set of French doors that leads onto the screened-in porch catching those Westlake breezes. To the left is the living room, which also opens to the family room overlooking three sets of doors with transoms windows bathing the rooms in more natural light overlooking the backyard. The family also includes a gas fireplace with built-in bookcases. There is stunning hardwood flooring throughout the main areas of the home that compliment the stately moldings and architectural elements that carry seamlessly from room to room. The thoughtful & beautiful kitchen design with custom cabinetry features a Dacor dual fuel range, custom hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and all surrounding a large center island, with accent lighting perfect for guest and family gatherings. Off the kitchen is the Breakfast Room/Keeping Room that offers a panoramic view of the private yard with windows on all three walls. The kitchen also includes a Butler’s pantry that connects to the formal dining room and tucked away large walk-in pantry with a plethora of storage.
The First Floor Primary Suite is is tucked down a quiet hallway and features a beautiful hearth and gas fireplace, built-ins and a sumptuous ensuite with custom double vanities, glass drawer & door pulls & built-ins, a spacious shower, and a relaxing jacuzzi soaking tub.

As you ascend to the second floor, notice the mahogany railing and wrought iron elements that lead you to the four bedrooms, one of the rooms is used as a Home Theater. There are two Jack-N-Jill Bathrooms for the four bedrooms, and all feature large custom walk-in closet spaces.
