SOLD | Built 1992 | 3,884 Sq. Ft. | 3 Beds | 4 Baths | 0.48 Acres
A one-of-a-kind coastal beach house built to withstand strong storms has sold for $4 million after first listing in June 2018 for $5 million. Weighing in at over 500 tons, the home was designed and built with the aim of withstanding the kind of storm that destroyed its predecessor in 1989 when Hurricane Hugo laid waste to islands across the Lowcountry. After losing their original home, the owners of this property hired their son, who had built dozens of concrete domes by that time for both industrial and residential users, to create for them a home in which they would have peace of mind for the rest of their lives. Now, 27 years later, after an extensive interior renovation, the Eye of the Storm has been passed to a new owner.
There is approximately 3,587 square foot of air conditioned space on the main floors with 3 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms plus an additional 297 square feet of ground floor space and 553 square feet of semi-enclosed, lockable storage rooms and shower rooms. The glass on the beach side, inset from the dome shell, maximizes views on the 100 foot wide, 0.48 acre lot to the beach, 230 feet away, where the home is perfectly positioned at the northeastern tip of the maritime forest.
