A home for large families with two master suites in a brilliant floor plan. Occupying most of the 17th Street block, this prized and revered property extends from Sea Island Drive all the way to the marsh. For families who enjoy staying together, Lune de Miel (Cottage 342) is lovingly placed on the land with the precision of an artist, an apt metaphor given the materials, furnishings and appointments dating from the 17th century. The enchanting grounds contain a moated gazebo with Louis XIII French limestone mantel (circa 1672), alfresco grill, pergola, lap pool, spa pool and volleyball pool, bath house with laundry room, basketball court, chess court, Dovecote (circa 16th-17th century), circular fire pit, putting green, chipping tee box, Bocce Ball court, shuffleboard and long northwesterly marsh vistas. The ground floor wing has a master suite with private office with fireplace. It’s sumptuous bath also enjoys its own fireplace. The upstairs master with fireplace is in its own luxurious world with sitting area, opulent bath, adjoining den with full bath and a 685 square foot library with fireplace. Six other bedrooms have fireplaces and there are two bunks, all ensuite. An Irish pub with baby grand piano has 17th century Roman carved black slate fireplace. The adjoining Game Room has a “Jewel” pool table, hardwood shuffle board table and 3 mounted big screen televisions. The English Victorian pine front bar has the original mahogany counter top (circa 1849) from a tavern in Birmingham, England. The back bar is from Fritzingers Hotel in Coopersburg, PA (circa 1883). Walk-in cooler. Adding to the authenticity of the home’s appointments, a 19th century bronze and ormolu French chandelier adorns the brick lined Wine Cellar. A solid European red oak and hand forged iron door (circa 1850) leads to the Theatre with rare Italian barrel-vaulted ceiling (circa 17th century). The family room limestone fireplace (circa 1600-1750) is from the Chateau Fountain in Sologne, France and belonged to the family of the wife of former French President Jacques Chirac. Indeed, this is a grand residence yet with a warm, comfortable loving ambience. Lune de Miel is the sequel of a couple’s spark of beautiful love where lasting memories were made. Let me tell you the “rest of the story”.
