This home was designed to highlight the best of coastal living, from the serenity of Spooner’s Creek to the delight of days spent on blissful boat excursions. Simply sipping sweet tea here with neighbors and admiring the lush and well-kept gardens and tranquil vibe is yet another welcome activity and a source of comfort and tranquility. Rumor has it, this Creek was named for the romancing that arose in the area decades ago. No doubt a result of the mood set by the idyllic setting and timeless beauty of the Carolina coast.
Before heading to the drawing board the sellers approached the building of this home with patience and intention, channeling their life experience, love of boating and their insights as homeowners into its creation. Next they found an architect with proven expertise as well as someone who shared their vision of sophistication, refinement and stately design. The owners’ overall goal was to balance unique, quality craftsmanship, while highlighting the connection to nature and the stunning views from each window. Harnessing as much natural light and space as possible was paramount as were practicality and appeal. What truly sets this home apart, however, is the owners’ understanding of the importance of the protected, deep water access and the ease of life for boaters it provides. There are only so many places for piers in prime locations and this is one of them! Nothing compares to having a dock and lift only steps away from your door, and one that can accommodate a large fishing boat as well as a smaller vessel, too, is a boon! Day trips are a snap and a joy from this location on the ICW, with beautiful Bogue Sound just around the bend.
The interior of this home is grand and luxurious, simple yet powerful, with its commanding scale with impressive high ceilings and generously sized rooms. Architectural details include columns and curved doorways plus coffered and tray ceilings. With subtlety of color, beauty of form and a show-stopper spiral staircase that is the centerpiece of this home, their extraordinary plans were realized.
The design of 5214 Driftwood was devised with indoor and outdoor entertaining in mind for parties or events big or small. It’s easy here with floor to ceiling kitchen cabinets, and the glamorous bar with wine storage that supplies extra space to set-up. The ground floor boasts a circuitous flow supporting easy mingling and time together with family.
This home is incredible in the truest sense of the word… impossible to believe for its combination of magnificence, space and peaceful vibe. It is a genuine coastal haven to be cherished, and like Spooners Creek, one that will live on — here on our Carolina coast —in our hearts and in our minds.
