This twelve year running, million dollar, Tour of Homes showcase was built, designed and formerly owned by an Atlanta Architect and will be made available for a limited number of weeks throughout the year. The home is considered by many as the top home available on Fripp Island. The house contains 6600 total square feet, with 4200 heated and air with four finished porches of 2400 square feet, on three levels with both a MARSH AND GOLF COURSE VIEW.
Designed in a style reminiscent of the British Colonial or West Indies Plantation you will experience Mahogany cabinets salvaged from the Carnegie Library built in the 1930's and all interior Mahogany paired doors from a girl's school built circa 1930's with an extensive original artwork collection. The kitchen has all granite counters, and throughout the house are hand made light fixtures from South Hampton.
This home is impeccably maintained, but is a casual home that features six bay segments. Looking at the house from the street the left is a two-story entryway, center kitchen, and right library. The three bays in the back of the house run 45 feet and are all open and segmented into dining, living, and fireplace with hardwood floors throughout. The upstairs expansive six-foot board and bead hall opens to five bedrooms (two with Kings, one Queen, and two with twin beds) all with balconies, assured to create fanciful dreams on this island paradise. Also, this home has four baths, an out door shower, a private den, a separate downstairs kids room with large TV and game room. Also included are adult bikes, two-door garage, and a lower floor shower when arriving from the beach.
Two Master Amenity cards give you access to all private club activities. THE OCEAN IS 300 YARDS OR A Four MINUTE WALK AWAY. You overlook the 17th tee of Ocean Creek Golf, and less than a five minute bike to the Beach Club, Cabana Club, or Marina. The yard, grassed front and back, is shaded by 25 palm trees, live oaks and is great for outdoor play. Also are four TV's, three VCRs, CD, and stereo system.
The back of the house faces the marsh and the prevailing wind direction. For eight months of the year all 12 double doors can be opened to create an ideal cross breeze. You will combine indoor and outdoor living to its fullest. The front of the house overlooks the pond and 17th tee of the Golf Course.

Lair Family, Phillip L.May 2013
We recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation at Bonito Boathouse on Fripp Island, SC. The owner, Mr Daniel, was so quick to respond to our emails and even provided us with personal pictures of his property. The house was very comfortable, plenty of room, and decorated tastefully. Our hosts had anticipated any and everything we would need to really enjoy our time in their home. We especially enjoyed our early morning coffee on the screened porch as we were surrounded by such beautiful scenery and interesting wild life. Early morning walks on the beach helped start our day perfectly. Several side trips were taken and we learned about the history of the region. The area is also blessed with many excellent restaurants and we especially enjoyed The Beaufort Inn. Thanks to all the people at 3RD Home and to Mr. Daniel for providing us with a great vacation.
