Property descriptionDon't miss the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase the ultimate custom home overlooking the Wilmington River/Intracoastal Waterway in Savannah's gated Causton Bluff neighborhood. Conveniently located 5 minutes east of downtown Savannah, this thoughtfully designed home features picturesque, panoramic waterfront views plus a 30-foot boat slip at the Causton Bluff Marina that can accommodate a 45-foot yacht.
Designed by Jim Strickland of Historical Concepts and built by Greg Hall of Greg Hall Custom Homes, this exquisite 5 BR/5BA waterfront home offers the ultimate in luxury and comfort. Enjoy unparalleled deepwater views in a safe, quiet, family-friendly neighborhood plus 14-foot ceilings, antique heart pine and travertine flooring, a Sonos sound system, high-end lighting fixtures, a 3-car garage and endless custom details throughout.
Located on the site for a former Civil War fort, this exceptional home is strategically positioned to offer picture-perfect southeastern water views on the second highest land in Chatham County. At 20 feet above sea level, no flood insurance is required.
Enter the elegant travertine-marble foyer to glimpse breathtaking water views and a sweeping staircase that leads to the second level. The dining room, which is ideal for dinner parties or family celebrations, includes a hand-painted mural of a picturesque villa in Portofino, Italy.
This one-of-a-kind home includes three en suite bedrooms on the main level, plus an open kitchen with Viking, Kitchen Aid and SubZero appliances; granite and teak countertops; custom glass-front cabinets and a large breakfast nook overlooking the river. A stunning family room, which connects with the kitchen, is anchored by a commanding custom floor-to-ceiling riverfront window crafted from commercial-grade aluminum and -inch polished plate glass designed to withstand strong winds. The family room also has a dramatic 16-foot pecky cypress ceiling and masonry fireplace with gas starter. An adjacent glass-and-copper jewel box offers an ideal place to read a book, watch the sailboats drift by or see the rain cascade like a waterfall over the glass.
The main level is home to a stunning master suite with a large bay window overlooking the Wilmington River/Intracoastal Waterway, decorative panel-tracery ceiling, detailed crown moldings, fireplace, antique heart pine floors, motorized black-out draperies and more. The master bath boasts a sunken Jacuzzi tub with dramatic river views, twin mahogany vanities with marble tops, a marble shower with four control systems, steam unit, multiple showerheads and a custom-made, rot-resistant awning window. An oversized walk-in closet provides custom shelving, a large wall mirror, 6'x8' LED lighting and a casement window.
Outdoors, a covered patio is part of an 800-square-foot brick-paved outdoor area overlooking the river. A blue-stone accented fountain, brick fireplace, grassy yard, secret garden with year-round breezes and covered veranda offer incredible opportunities for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. There is ample room in the backyard to add a waterfront pool, if so desired.
Also on the main level, a bedroom that can easily double as a study sports wood-paneled walls with a light semi-transparent glaze and direct access to a full bathroom with a custom marble-top vanity and marble floors. A third en suite bedroom provides luxurious appointments as well as custom cabinets with Moroccan accents and a wrought iron balcony. In addition, a laundry room with GE front-loading washer and dryer, cabinets and storage closet is conveniently located on the main floor.
Upstairs, a spacious en suite bedroom offers easy access to a private covered veranda overlooking the river that provides the perfect setting to enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail at sunset. A spectacular, private glass and marble bath offers sumptuous luxury. A second carpeted bedroom upstairs features a skylight and remarkable privacy, while a smaller studio/hobby room is ideal for art, crafts or other activities.
