The StromField Cottage: An Elegant Sportsman's Retreat

This magnificent home is prestigiously located in the gated community of The Farmstead and has 5 Bedrooms, 5 Full Bathrooms, and 2 Half Bathrooms.

This 9+ acre estate renders over 7,400 sq.ft of southern living on the water.  A sportsman’s retreat outside and casual elegance inside, this home has a story to tell.  The brick was reclaimed from a cotton gin in Whitmire, SC.  The boards used on the front porch were brought in from New Orleans and were previously used as a sea-wall.

Guests are welcomed through the wormy chesnut front door.  Upon entering the two story foyer, the openness of the interior can easily be measured.  The formal dining room is located on the right and the handsome den is on the left.  Large windows, beautiful millwork and walnut floors instantly grant hospitality .

The den has a Hitchcock ceiling and the walls are made of pecky cypress.  There are four pocket doors—two on the right open into a hallway by the wet bar.  The one on the right of the fireplace opens into the gunroom and the one on the left opens into a half-bath. The den in this home is a  sportsman’s dream,  it has a hidden gun room with built-in display cabinets and drawers that can be opened with the security system, a half-bath, and plenty of space to display trophies.

The great room is a large two-story room with a bridge above and a wall of windows to take advantage of the lake-view.  The French doors open up to the oversized screened porch.  The wet bar is located in the hall between the great room and den.

The kitchen is the heart of any home and this gourmet kitchen is as beautiful as it is functional.  It is separated from the great room by a beautiful bricked arched opening.  It is fully equipped with top-of-the-line Viking appliances including a six burner gas range with double ovens and a pot filler faucet, microwave, dishwasher, and oversized refrigerator.  The custom cabinetry grants many conveniences such as built-in trash containers and spice racks.

Located behind the range is a Butler’s Pantry with an abundance of cabinets and counter space as well as an extra dishwasher and built-in desk.  Just across the hall is the lavish laundry room and separate mud room.

The left wing of the home is dedicated to the owner’s suite.  A spiral staircase that leads to the upstairs office and grants quick access to the upstairs bedrooms as well. 

The extraordinary Master bathroom is incredible with a tub that is centrally located with a walk-through shower behind.  The shower has built-in seating and many shower heads.  His/Her vanities and toilets have a large closet that separate them.
