Connect With Nature in This Palmetto Bluff Home

Property of the Week: This vibrant community puts conservation at its core

By Serina Tatham

Thoughtfully sited to make the most of its picture-perfect setting, 253 Davies Road sits prettily among dramatic moss-draped oak trees with expansive marshland views. Located within Palmetto Bluff, a vibrant community enriched by wildlife, unspoiled rivers and marshes, it is a real estate opportunity unlike any other. Thanks to its unique setting, lovers of adventure and the great outdoors will be constantly inspired as trail walks, kayaking, paddleboarding and fly fishing are all part of daily life.

Designed for modern living, spending time with loved ones is at the heart of this home. Spanning an impressive 5,023 sq ft, the open plan living inside coupled with expansive gathering spaces outdoors offer future homeowners the ideal setting for entertaining. Indoor/outdoor living runs throughout the property, with architecture blurring the boundaries and promoting engagement with nature (although it’s hard to forget the surroundings, thanks to the views out over the water).

Entering the property, a bright foyer provides a warm welcome. Opening into ‘The Great Room’, details such as French oak flooring, exposed reclaimed wood beams and a stuccoed fireplace are striking, with similar accents found throughout the rest of the home. This open planned room also contains the kitchen, which features beautiful blue cabinets, a center island, unique backsplash tiles and a built-in dining banquette nestled in a bay window overlooking the Moorland. Tucked just behind, a fully equipped scullery with a wine cooler provides access to the grilling porch.

The primary suite is also located on the main floor and is bright and airy. With large windows that offer views of the marsh, access to a screened porch and his/hers walk-in closets, it is a serene space. The en-suite bathroom is outfitted in marble with dual vanities, a walk-in shower and a generous bathtub. There is also an accompanying en-suite guest room located on this floor, as well as a laundry room and a study with custom built-in storage that provides ample space for working.

On the upper floor, you will find an abundance of space to host friends or family, with three en-suite guest bedrooms – one of which has custom-built bunk beds – as well as a large family room complete with a built-in daybed. Over the garage is a guest annex complete with a sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. In total, the home boasts six spacious bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms.

Outside, a generous screened porch with fans – a must for hot summers – runs the length of the home, with plenty of entertaining space and a brick-surround fireplace for year-round enjoyment. There is also a pebble trail leading out towards the marsh, where a fire pit is nestled by grand trees – think pines, palmettos and oaks. With copious amounts of other trails in the area, there is a strong sense of connection between Palmetto Bluff residents, with the trails also ensuring homeowners are well linked not only to the local amenities but also the water.

Within the home, spray foam insulation is used as an environmentally friendly alternative to fiber insulations, as well as tankless water heaters which are between 24-34% more energy efficient than traditional storage water heaters. By allowing the land to be the guide, the community doesn’t impose a harsh development but instead respects its unique setting.
