Ashley Manor, named after my grandson, is quite possibly the nicest home available for rent on Edisto Island and is now being offered for rent for the first time. Patterned after the Seabrook Plantation on Edisto (circa 1830), this home features every conceivable amenity, including a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with marble counter tops, a formal dining room, 5 fireplaces, a library (great for playing cards or board games-see photo please) and a well equipped exercise room.
The home was built in 2006 by Edisto's premier builder, Terry Hoff and was just completely re-decorated. All of the linens (Egyptian cotton, 600 thread count), towels (800 gram), dinnerware, pots, pans, utensils, etc are high quality and brand new.
Ashley Manor is immaculately maintained; many will think it's new!
The exercise room features York bar bells, two different exercise benches, a True treadmill, Schwinn stationary bike, dumbbells of various weights, a 50 inch flat screen HDTV with a DVD player and exercise mats! Perfect for yoga or other exercise DVD's. And for inspiration, there is a spectacular view of the marsh, beach and ocean.
The kitchen, butler's pantry, dining room, den, powder room, master suite, and huge screened in porch are on the first foor.
The kitchen and butler's pantry feature a large sub-zero fridge/freezer, wolf stove and oven with warming drawer, refrigerated drawers, ice maker and wine cooler.
The second floor has 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, the exercise room and library. This floor also has a screened porch with a ping pong table, and a veranda. The library and one of the bedrooms have open decks facing the ocean.
The third floor features a copula with a full bar, ice maker, refrigerated drawers, dishwasher and the best views on the island.
Luxurious linens, towels. Cleaning fee and taxes are ALL included in the rental fee. I also supply a base supply of paper products and a few other items so that my guests don't have to run to the store as soon as they arrive. There are very few rentals on the Island that do this.
Please review the rest of the listing and don't hesitate to request additional information or photos.
Ashley Manor has a 4 stop elevator; ground floor, 1st floor, 2nd floor and copula. When you arrive, you can literally park 10 or 12 feet from the elevator making transferring your luggage and other personal items into the house a breeze!
Ashley Manor also has a regularly maintained 'whole house' reverse osmosis system with a 1,300 gallon storage tank and produces 60 gallons of nearly perfect water every hour. This means that every drop of water used, be it for bathing, cooking, etc has been purified. The water also tastes great, so I don't find it necessary to bring bottled water. Your preference may be different.
In addition, Ashley Manor has a large generator, which automatically cranks up should the power go off. The generator is capable of running about 3/4's of the house, including necessities such air conditioning. And as soon as the power is restored, the generator automatically cuts off. My guests do not have to do anything. This feature, which only a few homes on Edisto have, will save the day should a thunder storm, for example, cause a power outage.
This is the second year Ashley Manor has been available for rent. As such, the current rental fee is a below market. Please take advantage of this and choose Ashley Manor for your next vacation!
