Seven Oaks is a 9+ acre waterfront masterpiece designed, crafted, and cared for with exacting standards of excellence. This private estate is located in prestigious Colleton River Plantation, two miles from Hilton Head Island.
Surveying the breadth of the Colleton River, Seven Oaks Estate occupies acreage of pristine maritime forest. Specimen live oaks, magnolias, palmettos, and towering pines frame the grounds - lending a compelling sense of place and authenticity. While the grounds in and of themselves reflect one of nature's great masterpieces, it is the approximately 500 feet of shoreline that captures the imagination. The daily ebb and flow of the tides, the seasonal transformation of spartina grass, the flight of the heron and playfulness of dolphin... all converge into a dynamic tapestry of wonder and beauty.
Much of the home was designed and built to accommodate antique pieces collected over the years from multiple buying trips throughout Europe.
The light and airy Tea Room features an antique leaded glass ceiling from an old New York hotel and provides the perfect place for an afternoon break of tea or coffee.
As one turns and enters through the 10' high solid wood sliding pocket doors into the Great Room and the Library, the high vaulted cathedral ceiling showcases hand carved beams and incredible water views!
The long Gallery with a beautiful "groin" ceiling accesses the Dining Room as well as opening onto a beautiful courtyard featuring an outdoor fireplace, fountain, and sunset views over the Colleton River.
The spacious Dining Room features three chandeliers and tables for varying number of guests as well as a beautiful hand carved Mahogany mantle with intricate detailing that took two years to carve.
The Office & Study boasts solid wormy chestnut milled from raw material taken from a 100 year old barn in eastern Tennessee.
Leaning against the bookcase one finds it slowly opening to a kitchen, computer room and secret entrance to the Master Suite which has its own sitting room, His and Hers bathrooms and dressing rooms, and a fully functioning Salon Room. The Master Suite has great views of the river and includes three of the ten fireplaces on the property.
The Formal Garden Room or Family Room is located adjacent to the main kitchen and provides a warm, inviting dining area as well as a place to relax and unwind.
The main kitchen, designed for entertaining, provides two complete cooking stations with matching gas & electric cooktops. The estate has the equivalent of 6 kitchens, including a total of seven large refrigerators, 3 under counter refrigerators, 7 microwaves, and 4 warming drawers.
Upstairs is a spacious guest suite with an exercise room. Guests enjoy wonderful views of the grounds and rivers from their private balcony.
The second guest suite or Maid's Quarters has its own kitchen and family room.
The Guest Cottage is located the perfect distance from the main house for both privacy and convenience of the estate's guests and is complete with a full kitchen, three bedrooms, and a family room with a vaulted ceiling. Guests enjoy the pool, spa, waterfall, and stone cabana complete with grill, wet bar, refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher and bathroom.
