Exquisite award winning custom home by Hovis Builders tucked away in the Crest, an exclusive estate home community behind the gates of the King and Bear. A genius collaboration of elegant style and revolutionary green technology pairs geothermal heating and air, ICF construction, reclaimed materials and upscale finishes to craft the perfect home that is considerate to the environment and delivers the luxuries you expect in a custom home. Built to higher standards with aluminum framing, steel reinforced and poured concrete construction, a metal shingle roof, energy star windows and doors all deliver a combined utility savings of about 60%, awarded multiple builder/energy awards like Energy Star, Florida Water Star, and FPL BuildSmart. Designed for entertaining close friends for an intimate dinner party or catering to one hundred guests -- this home flows well and can accommodate. The approach is stunning as you make your way around a circular driveway to the governors' circle and up the Paver walkway to a covered entry. Charleston gas lanterns flank the front porch, and upon entering through two solid wood arched doors, you’re immediately wowed by a gorgeous chandelier dangling from 24-foot ceilings, a custom wrought-iron staircase, and tons of natural light that floods the room. As you make your way through this designer showcase home you will uncover the unique luxuries within; reclaimed hardwood floors from a barn in North Carolina flow throughout the living spaces and master bedroom, tall ceilings crowned with extensive molding, coffered ceilings in the living room, a built-in temperature controlled wine cellar, and much more. An executive’s office is fitted with custom wood cabinets and bookcases, reclaimed hardwood floors, handsome drapes, and there’s a courtyard through arched double doors.
