Half Bath


This home has perhaps the best water and marsh views at Brays. It sits on a promontory overlooking the tidal basin of Haulover Creek, uniquely situated with long expansive views of the basin both northward towards Brays Island and South to the far islet that guards Haulover Creek from the Pocotaligo River. As the lot faces West, there are brilliant and dramatic sunsets. The vista is constantly changing with the tide, from full water lapping at the shoreline, feet from the house, until as the tide recedes, it changes to an expanse of grass, ever so like an African plain. Every stage of tide draws a different mix of Brays fauna; from wading birds to tailing Redfish, you see it all.

The noted architect Michael Frederick, took full advantage of this unique lot to design a home that is wonderfully focused on bringing nature to every room. Only feet from the master bedroom's fully windowed glass wall deer and the occasional raccoon or possum can be seen in the mornings coming to water. There are few other homes at Brays that share such an intimate relationship with nature.

The three bedroom home, with four full baths and two half baths, is built as a courtyard complex consisting of the main house and owner's wing, an office / studio building, a guest house, and a building housing a three bay garage along with a gym and large furnished storeroom. All of the buildings are connected by a wide covered breezeway. Access to the courtyard is through an automatic gate onto a circular driveway. The house has been determinedly screened from any neighbor, creating a complete 'illusion of seclusion.'

An evening sundowner enjoyed on the screened porch as sunset fades, with songbirds singing themselves to sleep and an owl beginning to hoot, is the true essence of Brays living.
