Daniel Island, Estate of the Day
Today's home is a new build on the water in the Daniel Island area of Charleston, South Carolina. The home is on a bend in Ralston Creek and has an infinity pool that looks out onto the marsh. The home's mansard roof is meant to recall more historic homes in the area but up close it's all modern. You enter the home through a reflection pool courtyard facing a pair of bronze and resin sunburst doors.
The home has an open layout with a large windows facing the marsh and light wood. The kitchen has a double layout that features two work areas separated by a six-burner stove that can be used from both sides. An island separates the entertaining area of the kitchen from the home's open living rooms. The bathrooms are angular and modern. A particularly whimsical note is the floral print dining room with clear ghost chairs and a beaded chandelier.
The home has its functional side too. There are surveillance cameras, remote-controlled hurricane shutters, two laundry rooms and a garage that can store up to seven cars. Outside there is a pool-side kitchen and deck and easy access to a deep-water dock with a boat lift. This home is listed at $6.499 million.
