Sitting prettily on 3.6 riverfront acres, this delightful real estate opportunity in Palmetto Bluff bears the moniker ‘Riverbend’ due to its top-notch May River location. It is entered via a winding drive, punctuated by brick columns and gas lanterns, and shaded by oaks and pines, that ends at a sun-filled grand entrance with manicured landscaping.
The five-bedroom, 7,708-sq-ft home is filled with natural light. French doors span the entire front and back of the home, opening out to a deep front porch with classic columns, and a rear screened porch with electric screens, grand covered terrace with an outdoor fireplace and an airy sunroom.
The deep back porch is made for entertaining — BBQ on the custom gas grill while drinking in the views of the May River. Inside you’ll find elegant decor, from the hand-scraped black walnut floors to reclaimed ceiling beams, as well as all the modern conveniences — a Sub-Zero wine fridge and Viking six-burner gas cooktop, for example.
The master suite has his ‘n’ hers vanities and its own screened porch with serene river views. There is also a formal library, office, guest bedroom and bathroom, plus a separate two-bedroom guest house, a 3.5-car garage with climate-controlled storage and a gym.
