|||Since its construction in 1992, the Eye of the Storm, a concrete and steel dome residence on the front beach of Sullivan's Island, has become a well-known Charleston area landmark, and since its listing, has already been featured in news stories on the websites of Fox News, Business Insider, CNBC, Realtor.com, and the Post & Courier. It has also been the subject of an Fstoppers photography contest that has generated over a quarter million views on YouTube and provided the photography shoot location for Charleston Magazine's March 2019 cover article on fashion. This home inspires wonder and imagination. Weighing in at a over 500 tons, the home was designed and built with the aim of withstanding the kind of storm that destroyed its predecessor in 1989 when Hurricane Hugo laid waste to islands across the Lowcountry. After losing their original home, the owners of this property hired their son, who had built dozens of concrete domes by that time for both industrial and residential users, to create for them a home in which they would have peace of mind for the rest of their lives. Now, 28 years later, after an extensive interior renovation, the Eye of the Storm is being marketed for sale for the first time. The home is approximately 3,571 SF of conditioned space on the main floors with three bedrooms and four full bathrooms, plus approximately 330 SF of ground floor (uninsurable) conditioned space for a total of 3,901 SF of conditioned space. The ground floor also features over 550 Sf of semi-enclosed (FEMA-compliant), lockable storage rooms and shower rooms. While the shell of this monolithic (no separate roof) thermospheric structure repels bad weather, it also creates a theater for nature's beauty. The glass on the beach side, inset from the dome shell, maximizes views on the 100 foot wide, 0.48 acre lot to the beach, 230 feet away, where the home is perfectly positioned at the northeastern tip of the maritime forest. At this location on the island, the beach is plentiful and close to the house, and the views are breathtaking. The interior design, inspired by the curves of shells found on the beach, leads the eyes through the Great Room to every custom and thoughtfully planned area in the home. A master bedroom, accessible by elevator from the ground floor garage, has a private 159 SF balcony with views over the beach and luxurious high ceilings. Two guest bedrooms on the main floor are each a marvel of design and will delight guests through their sheer inventiveness. A new large kitchen on the main floor has sweeping views of the interior architecture and the beach beyond. A skylight at the top of the dome, just above a study and a wet bar, lies on a favorite cruising pattern for pelicans whose shadows are seen passing over and through the house daily. The Eye of the Storm features 889 square feet of deck space, almost all of which is oriented toward the beach. The main deck is a lovely, large gathering place that will anchor both coffee breaks and epic parties. People want to be on this deck ALL THE TIME! If there weren't already enough to intrigue you, the home includes a bank vault room behind the kitchen pantry and laundry room. Stock your valuables there, or use it as a wine vault. Up to four or five vehicles can park under the house, but they would need to be positioned end-to-end; however, there is plenty of area of guest parking in the driveway. A dozen cars can park at the property together. But we can't promise that will be enough space for the guests who will want to visit you at the Eye of the Storm.
