Situated within the esteemed confines of The Preserve, 189 Bull Thistle stands as a paragon of architectural refinement. With four bedrooms, four baths, and two half-baths sprawled across its 4,610 square feet, this home epitomizes sophistication at every turn.

Something to be uniquely noted are the expansive buffer zones from neighbors due to the private location of the home and additionally, how no new houses may be built anywhere around the home, preserving its unparalleled sense of tranquility and exclusivity.

Crafted under the visionary guidance of renowned architect Chad McDonald and meticulously constructed by Byrd Builders, this shingle-style masterpiece boasts a resplendent metal roof, seamlessly blending into its natural surroundings. The meticulous design, intended to harmonize with the environment, showcases a blend of hip and gable-style roofs, culminating in a striking visual composition. Surrounded by the serene embrace of maritime forest, the dwelling offers captivating views of the tranquil lagoon, meticulously framed by lush landscaping that effortlessly integrates the natural with the manmade.

Upon entry, a sense of grandeur envelops guests, greeted by a barrel-vaulted ceiling of tongue-in-groove wood adorning the front porch, complemented by a magnificent mahogany door. Within, the residence unfolds into a realm of contemporary sophistication, where bespoke furnishings, vibrant textures, and eclectic artworks converge in a symphony of style and substance.

The living room stands as a testament to splendor, with its coffered ceilings, abundant windows, and bespoke built-ins flanking the arched entryway. A slate-clad gas fireplace serves as the focal point, while transom-topped glass French doors beckon towards the screened porch, adorned with a tongue-in-groove ceiling and crown molding, offering panoramic vistas of the lagoon and the infinity-edge saltwater heated pool below.

The culinary realm is equally impressive, featuring a chef's dream kitchen replete with Thermador appliances, quartz countertops, and a Subzero wine cooler. Adjacent, a well-appointed bar, resplendent in rich wood tones, leads to the formal dining area, where window seating and glass doors open onto a balcony overlooking the picturesque surroundings.

Retreat to the primary suite, a sanctuary bathed in natural light, boasting a tray ceiling, expansive windows, and a private covered porch. The spa-like ensuite bathroom exudes luxury, with marbled granite vanities, a capacious walk-in shower, heated floors, and bead board panels, while dual walk-in closets offer ample storage space.

Upstairs, a sitting room/office provides a bird's-eye view of the lower level, while guest bedrooms and additional amenities await, including a home office adorned in rich wainscoting, trim, and molding, contrasting deliciously with the white walls and ceilings. The residence also features carpeting in the bedrooms, oak hardwood floors throughout, and laundry rooms on both the first and second floors, with the latter boasting a kitchenette and refrigerator.

Outdoor amenities include an enclosed courtyard with a beautiful tongue-in-groove ceiling and an outdoor shower. A two-bay garage, with room for three cars and a workout space, features a dehumidifier ideal for storage.

Complete with state-of-the-art amenities including a Sonos sound system, geothermal heating, and an elevator servicing all floors, this residence epitomizes luxury living in an idyllic setting, where every detail has been curated to evoke an unparalleled sense of refinement and tranquility.

This home not only conveys with a Golf Membership, but additionally, is being sold fully furnished with few exceptions.
