142 Mount Pelia Road is a first-of-its-kind offering situated on a three-acre estate in May River Forest with a spectacular park-like setting, private lake, and an entirely reimagined and renovated six-bedroom, six-and-two-half-bathroom 6,644 square foot home completed in March of this year by Hansen Architects and Richard Best Custom Homes. Located at the end of a private gated winding drive lined with live oaks, tall pines, and mature landscaping and surrounded by protected maritime forest, this secluded compound was brought back to the studs and expanded and built to the highest standards. Every window overlooks the water and the golf course beyond, and the property is within walking distance of Wilson Village via a hidden trail on the property.

An expansive front porch, painted wood shingle siding, metal roof, wood shutters, double stairway with custom wrought-iron handrails, and classic southern details adorn the outside. Inside, modern living and remarkable architectural elements comprise this 6,644 square foot home rich with details. Extensive millwork, shiplap, raised paneling, moldings, and cedar closets are only a few of the custom wood details constructed by master craftsmen that give this home a classic estate feel.

A dramatic foyer and a large, curved staircase open up to a great room with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of natural light, providing the ideal setting for relaxing and entertaining amid the beautiful Lowcountry views. Overlooking the great room, a spacious gourmet kitchen with striking floor to ceiling windows provides the perfect space for entertaining and cooking and epitomizes luxury and convenience with a large island, marble countertops, sitting area, custom cabinetry, Wolf range, built-in dishwashers and Sub-Zero refrigerator, back kitchen, and convenient butler’s pantry with a Sub-Zero wine cooler. A separate formal dining room and a generous screen porch with custom brick features, fireplace, ceiling mounted outdoor heaters, and views of the pool and golf course beyond round out the first floor’s entertaining spaces.

Recently expanded by more than 1,200 feet and substantially remodeled, the first-floor primary wing is a relaxing oasis with a large bedroom suite that overlooks a new heated pool and includes a private sitting room, living room, spacious his and her studies, private screened porch, and an elegant primary bathroom with dual vanities, standalone tub, shower, custom cabinetry and two walk-in closets. Upstairs, the second-floor landing overlooks the two-story great room and leads to four spacious guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.

A beautiful brick-paved breezeway lined with columns, mature landscaping, and classic architectural details leads to a three-car garage with an exercise room and a completely renovated one-bedroom carriage house. Replete with a sun-filled sitting area, full kitchenette, and an updated bathroom with timeless detailing, this is the perfect space for guests to relax and unwind.

Outside, future owners can take advantage of the complete and total privacy afforded by this homesite with a heated lap pool, outdoor shower, gas fireplaces, and a sunning dock perfect for enjoying your own private lake. This incredible all-in-one turn-key estate is the ideal escape for future owners wishing to enjoy the privacy of nature with convenient access to sporting activities and downtown Wilson Village.
