Wouldn't it be refreshing to move into a new dream home without having to renovate to get an accompanying dream closet? Such a property exists at 625 Regatta Road in Columbia. 

Offered by Bishop Real Estate Group, this custom home is situated on an incredible 1.57-acre lot, with views of 785 feet of shoreline from every room. It graciously has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, plus two partial bathrooms inside its 6,551 square feet. While some home seekers are wooed by the property's lake frontage, the exquisite his-and-hers closet also catches a lot of attention.

This property and designer stand out and were even featured in the book Interiors Southeast.

The grand entry features a free-floating curved staircase, which sets the tone for finish work found throughout the home. The master retreat is located on the main level, along with another bedroom suite. Upstairs, two additional bedroom suites with private baths and walk-in closets each have French doors to the lakefront, covered porch.

This dreamy closet has plenty of organizational room with whimsical ways to personalize the space and be a little playful, such as incorporating gems from travels or spotlighting a favorite collection, while still being a practical space. This closet was designed to accommodate folded items, as well as both short- and long-hanging pieces.

One of the 2019 trends in closets is for them to become one-stop-shops for entire wardrobes. The closet space at this home incorporates the gold standard of custom closet design in providing ample shoe storage. It also has drawers to keep items systematized and at one's fingertips, while eliminating the need to have other furniture elsewhere in the bedroom. 

Remember: A well-designed closet will increase the storage capacity of a house, leading to a cleaner look throughout the rest of the home.

Beyond The Closet Space:

The home also has a formal living, an office and dining rooms and casual living spaces, such as the great room, theater, game room, exercise room, loft and casual dining area.

Outdoors, one can enjoy covered porches; a lakeside Cabana with an outdoor kitchen and storage room; a Gunite saltwater pool with fountain; a boathouse; a private boat ramp; a Trex boat dock with a center lift; and a three-bay attached garage with a workshop, built-ins and epoxy-coated floor. The property has a back-up generator, a central vacuum cleaner, lake-fed irrigation, landscape lighting, and brick and aluminum fencing with remote-enabled gates.

The house lists for $2,975,000. For a personal tour of this outstanding property, call Becky Bishop at 803.665.1580 or Terry Bishop at 803.665.1442.
