Cottage 552

The massive mahogany double doors with fish scale motif panels and lion-head knockers at the front entry allude to the creative décor and architectural detail to be found inside Cottage 552. Groin ceilings, Jerusalem Biblical stone flooring and flanking limestone columns lead through a series of arches from the open plan foyer, dining room, and sitting room into a cozy study with flat panel, 60” TV, fireplace and African hunt accents. A zebra skin adorns the pinnacle of the fourteen-foot, beamed ceiling. Cabinetry is of Wormy Maple.

The massive mahogany double doors with fish scale motif panels and lion-head knockers at the front entry allude to the creative décor and architectural detail to be found inside Cottage 552. Groin ceilings, Jerusalem Biblical stone flooring and flanking limestone columns lead through a series of arches from the open plan foyer, dining room, and sitting room into a cozy study with flat panel, 60” TV, fireplace and African hunt accents. A zebra skin adorns the pinnacle of the fourteen-foot, beamed ceiling. Cabinetry is of Wormy Maple.

The combination kitchen and family room offers ample informal gathering spaces around the large, flat panel TV and fireplace. (Wii is available). The owner has ingeniously utilized space by incorporating an L-shaped breakfast and food prep counter of varying heights and unique corner drawers. The kitchen is outfitted with high end appliances, including Wolf gas cook top with pot filler and warming oven, microwave, large country sink plus prep sink, and Sub-zero refrigerator with cabinetry façade. The counter seats four with additional informal seating for six at the breakfast table. Limestone features surround both the stove and the fireplace.

Conveniently located on the first level, the master bedroom is spacious with fourteen-foot ceilings with subdued cove ceiling lighting and features soft aqua and brown tones. It has direct access to the rear lanai and an over-sized master bath with both walk-in shower and deep, soaking tub. His and Her vanities are thoughtfully built at different heights.

Guest bedrooms are located on the second level, each with its own coordinating full bath with combination tub and shower. One guest room features taupe and white fabrics with a reading room opening to a small balcony. A second bedroom has a queen bed in white with muted green fabrics, while a third has two twins designed for children, but with ample space to serve as adult quarters when needed. The fourth upstairs bedroom is unique in shape featuring an assemblage of windows to create a bowed effect and overlooking the rear lawn.

Cottage 552 is located directly on Sea Island Drive—a bike-ride away along the bike path from the Cloister Resort facilities and only a block from beach access. Tide contingent beach access is located on 31st Street.

Other unique items include a powder room with padded wall covering and antique mirrored ceiling and an outdoor kitchen that gives the option of either gas grilling or show-cooking wood barbeque. A circular walkway meanders through the manicured rear lawn passing a sundial that reminds you that you are now on “island time.”
