Contemporary meets classic at 492 Forest Road. Classic for its Sea Island setting – in the exclusive gated enclave of Ocean Forest, with views of the championship Ocean Forest Golf Course, Hampton River, Little Saint Simons Island beach and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, all under gorgeous Georgia live oaks. Contemporary for its use of modern functionality and conveniences – wide open spaces, rooms that are truly indoor/outdoor, state-of-the-art electronics and hardware, and private spaces for work and play. Very few homes can boast the multitude of views one gets from 492 Forest Road, and most every room on the east side has a balcony or terrace to take it all in. The cottage is built like The Cloister; poured concrete from footer to roof, with concrete over steel floors on every level, as solid as any structure on Sea Island. Old world stucco adorns the exterior, capped by a Ludowici Slate roof, the finest available. Exquisite details begin the moment you enter the foyer. The floating stone staircase, handmade for this residence in Spain, draws you into the space in dramatic fashion. The old world plaster walls are cool and calming. The great room has one of four fireplaces, all DaVinci, and a full wet bar station with wine closet. The indoor kitchen has all the top name appliance makers; La Cornue, Sub-Zero, Miele, BlueStar and Wolf. A full size media room and two level exercise suite is on the second floor, in addition to the primary bedroom and two more large bedrooms. On the third floor is an enormous office, with panoramic views, and a “retreat” room with sauna and soaking tub. Throughout the cottage is the latest HVAC delivery system for whisper quiet operation, and every room is wired for sound. The fit and finish details are super high end too – every room gets its own custom cabinetry and moldings, and the closets are all oversized. Upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms add convenience for staff and guests. Outside, a huge infinity edge pool with sun shelf is off the patio, and for more privacy the hot tub is located on the north side of the cottage, just off the pool bath. The landscape blends nicely with the natural environment, focusing on native plants and shrubs and drawing your eye toward Mother Nature’s handiwork just beyond the yard. The finished product is a truly unique and special Sea Island Residence.
