The main house was custom built in 2007 by Hazel Rourke, and designed by architect, Justin Ferrick.. Entering the main house from the layered slate and brick walkways and up to the large covered front porch, you immediately have breathtaking views of the creek through the house. The home is designed to live on the main level, with the master bedroom downstairs, and only a few stairs to reach ground floor elevation. The main level features oak hardwood flooring throughout. The garage, full bath, wet bar, kitchen and breakfast dining area are on one side of the house, and the master bedroom, bathroom, library, and office are on the other giving much privacy to the master suite. The main living and dining area feature large floor to ceiling windows to capture the views, and wood burning fireplace with a gas starter and walnut mantel. Just off the living room, and library, is a screened porch which features vaulted ceilings and IPE decking. Perfect for entertaining, this screened in porch has a large brick wood burning fireplace, with gas starter, TV, and is currently set up with a wet bar and cooler. The spacious master bedroom features incredible views over the backyard, pool deck, and Bohicket Creek.
