Picture a walk into the house looking at floor to ceiling windows across the whole back and a magnificent view of the ocean. It is a 'wow'! A deck also runs the full width of the rear of the house with a private walkway to the beach. This deck is often the viewing area of many good games of volley ball, set up on the roomy backyard.
You want to have a family reunion, or vacation with friends and their kids? Gather in the great room for lots of conversations or watch the large screen TV. This 7 bedroom house sleeps a max of 20. Friends who have rented the house have sent us videos and pictures of their good family times, sitting at the 12 seat dining table that stretches across those windows with that beach view. Sometimes the kids eat by at the separate dining table near the kitchen with it's own corner of all windows. At breakfast time, I find that people wander into the kitchen to pour their coffee and head to that table to chat and still be in conversation with those in the kitchen. Some will still be in pajamas and choose to sit on the screen porch right off the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is well supplied with utensils to feed a large group, 2 refrigerators (plus another on the lower lever). Plenty of space for cooking and conversing. A counter bar can seat another 4 people. The laundry room is right off the kitchen for easy access.
Upon arrival, the kids love checking out the bedrooms located on all 3 levels to figure out which room will be theirs.
Main Level: Very spacious master suite including a huge master bath. Also a 1/2 bath on this level.
Top level: 5 bedrooms with a combination of king beds in the oceanfront bedrooms, and queens in 2 others and a bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. two full baths. One of the front bedrooms is so large with a wall of windows we couldn't take a picture that does it justice. You just have to come see it.
Ground Level: Play rooms - the TV viewing room, the ping pong table room, the game table area, and 2 sets of bunk beds separated from it, as well as a sleeper sofa. A full bath with 2 rooms, one for sinks and the other for the tub/shower and toilet, makes it easy to service everyone. This is the level with the 3rd refrigerator as well as a second washer/dryer set.
Fripp Island is a gated resort island with the natural beauty of the lush subtropical scenery, as well as 2 golf course winding through the 2 sides of the island, a tennis complex, an adult swimming pool, a large kids swimming pool and play area, play grounds for kids, a kids camp in the summer, marina, fishing, and restaurants to suit families needs as well as fine dining. You will enjoy biking the island to see the different views from the ocean to the marsh land. Entering the water from the back side of the island is a doorway to the marsh creeks and waterways for good canoeing and kayaking.
If you want to explore the surrounding area, next door is the state owned Hunting Island, and Beaufort is done the road for more restaurants, touring the historic district, miniature golf, great shops and galleries.
This home was built for families, and we have worked at design and comfort for what we have experienced that we needed when we vacationed with our families. Many of our friends have joined us or rented the house for their own good times. We included their comments and reviews. We want to share this great house and location with you.
My husband and I are retired, and spend part of the year at Fripp and part in Wisconsin. This is a great way to enjoy our children and grandchildren, besides avoiding the coldest part of the year up north.
I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it for sale online in 2004. We knew we wanted to be in the low country, preferably on Fripp Island to enjoy the tropical paradise, the ocean and beach, and take advantage of the amenities the resort island has to offer.
We have been able to share the Beaufort area with lots of our friends from Wisconsin, many of whom have never been here. The house is so roomy and comfortable for a number of people, they all want to come back. In fact, many of them do come back with their families. You know it has to be good if they are willing to come back that distance from Wisconsin!
Come enjoy everything our lowcountry has to offer. From horse drawn carriage rides through our historic downtown, shops, local restaurants with local seafood, and lay out on the beach all day and relax after all that. Fripp Island offers two well acclaimed golf courses to tee off on , olympic pools, kiddy pools, gift shops and much, much more. Search our islands for shells, and watch our dolphins play. The deer are the islands permanent guests adding a little something more for the kids to do. Why wait, call us today and book this home where you can enjoy backyard volleyball or indoor ping pong.
