46 Hickory Trail is the ultimate tree house in the woods!  Surrounded by a maritime forest, the architect, Chris Nason of Beacon Architecture did a beautiful job creating a one of a kind home, among the live oaks.As many trees were kept as possible to create the effect of blending into the natural surroundings.  The home was constructed to be environmentally friendly. There is a Tesla Charger in the garage. Inside the garage you will find a double oversized garage for 2 vehicles and a handyman’s workshop. The high ceilings are perfect for creating extra storage space. You have to check out the blue swirl epoxy floor as well!  When you walk into the main house you will immediately be in awe of the live oak wrapped beams in the Foyer. The wood was salvaged from the Live Oak tree we had to cut when clearing the lot. The wood was also used to make a beautifully crafted floating entertainment center in the living area. The treehouse theme is carried throughout the interior of the house.If you look to the left there is a large stairway leading up to the second floor. Hanging from the entryway and the stairs are large modern chandeliers sparkling in the natural light from the large modern windows. The windows allow a lot of natural lighting through out the house and provide an open feeling that reflects a oneness with nature. The living area has large modern picture widows looking out to the woods leading down to the canal. The foyer, living area, and dining room have cherry hardwood floors matching the beams in the ceiling and railing on the stairway.
