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 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. This cottage takes full advantage of the stunning views from the ultra-modern Marvin windows and doors- many rooms become truly al fresco when the panel doors are fully opened. Just beyond the first level patio is the 6th tee of the Ocean Forest Golf Course, recently updated in spectacular fashion. Then your eyes move to the wide Hampton River and the white sands of Little Saint Simons Island beach, and beyond the expanse of the Atlantic. Very few homes can boast the views one gets from 492 Forest Road, and every room on the east side has a balcony or terrace to take it all in. The cottage is built like the Cloister; concrete block framing 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 Lexton Louisiana 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 unique fashion. The great room has one of four fireplaces, all DaVinci, and a full wet bar station with wine closet as well. The indoor kitchen has all the top name appliance makers; Sub Zero, Meile, Blu Star and Bosch, while the outdoor kitchen is a full Alfresco Company setup for the covered patio. A full-size media room and two-level exercise room are on the second level, in addition to the primary bedroom and two more large bedrooms. On the third level 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 pool with sun/shade sitting area 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 towards Mother Nature’s handiwork beyond the yard. Two of the best in their fields designed and implemented this masterpiece. John Shackelford, well known and respected architect with dozens of Sea Island cottages to his credit, has created some of the most visually stunning homes in the area, including 492 Forest Road. Jeff Anderson is well recognized for his attention to detail and his ability to execute intricate residential dwellings, and you can see his expertise in this cottage. The finished product is a unique and special Sea Island residence. ***Renderings are an approximation***
