Mount Pleasant, Estate of the Day
Today's home has a tough road ahead, its $10 million price tag is the highest asking price ever sought for a home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The five-bedroom home was built in 2003 and sits at the mouth of Shem Creek, positioned for lovely tranquil views of Ravenel bridge, the Charleston skyline, Sullivan's Island, and Fort Sumter. The saltwater pool shown above spans the length of the house and faces the water.
The State reports that the most expensive home sale on record in the area was in Old Village and went for $3.25 million in 2007. The home sits on 1.32 acres and has a deep water-covered dock on Shem Creek. It was built in 2003 but has the look of an older home complete with that beautiful plantation style porch. Inside there are high ceilings and wide planked reclaimed antique heart of pine flooring on all three floors. On the first floor the foyer hall runs from the entrance to the rear double French doors leading out to the pool. The kitchen opens to a family room with a fireplace and there is also a formal dining room. A large wood-paneled gathering room has built-in cabinets with gun cases and the adjacent media room has a large drop down projector screen and LCD projector. What should be a den or a study with wood paneling, shelves and a fireplace has been pressed into service as a gym. The second floor has the master bedroom suite which has a private porch for enjoying the views. There are two other bedrooms and a home office on this floor. The third floor serves as a combination den, recreational room, built-in beds and full bath. An elevator connects all three stories. Think it will get the asking price?
