Welcome to ''The Admiralty at Pelican Pond'' at 1782 Salt Marsh Circle Southwest. One of the first homes built in Bent Tree Plantation(platted in 1984 & the ONLY mainland OIB gated community with transient ACCESS to the Intracoastal Waterway), The Admiralty is unique in every way. Located just one mile crow's flight from breaking waves on OIB, The Admiralty straddles two bulk-headed waterfront homesites. Overlooking a beautiful lighted fountain on Pelican Pond, this crowning corner lot is idyllically covered in mature, native plantings to delight the most ardent horticulturalist. Nestled atop the lots, this home evokes a vibe reminiscent of Bald Head Island-the facade, the vegetation, the water, the location will set one feeling a world away from all the rest. Originally custom-built in 1988 by one of the area's most-respected builders, The Admiralty is a sprawling ranch offering three distinct suites spoked from the hub of a huge central kitchen & living area all flowing smoothly to the screen porch, the huge rear deck and the Pit Boss's barbeque. Three owners throughout three decades have enriched the home such that one might wander a nostalgic tour from under the mid-century modern Marsh Lighting classic in the dining room, past the new ComfortBilt Pellet Stove & the three unique fireplaces, across fantastic porcelain & ''hand-scrubbed'' Elmwood floors, all under new hi-efficiency, low-heat LED Daylight lightbulbs. Almost all with views overlooking Pelican Pond. Having withstood time and tempest, The Admiralty is a well-built home that offers features not found in today's newer homes. And yet, though The Admiralty has its quirks, faults & foibles, the home and the property offer an amazing canvas upon which the next home owner may paint their dream. The details are truly too many to fit this small space so please be sure to ask for the Comprehensive Disclosures Dossier. Come see this place & bring your interior decorator. This place is amazing!
