Why it’s for sale: Ankur, 53, and her husband, Vincent, 64, who own a fashion house in Manhattan, say they’re relocating to Charleston, South Carolina.

There are many architectural details in the 2,246-square-foot unit the Mignons bought in 2012. Ankur shares:

“Everyone says, ‘Wow!’ when they walk in. It’s also what made us buy it. There’s an open floor plan. There are shiny hardwood floors throughout the main floor, and the bedrooms upstairs are all carpeted. We have a beautiful wood stairway.

"Looking out the double sliding doors from the formal dining room and living room to our wooded backyard is almost like bringing the outdoors in. You feel like you’re really in the countryside. It’s very peaceful. The amenities include a pool, two tennis courts and a clubhouse. We have a marina here where you can dock your boat. And we’re right across from Fire Island so the location is perfect.

"The attention to detail includes crown molding, chair railing in the dining room, wonderful molding in the living room and columns in the kitchen and breakfast nook. We have Tiffany-style lights in the kitchen and a Tiffany-style chandelier over the stairway.

"Near our unit is the historic 19th century clubhouse from the golf course that was on this property originally. The master bedroom has a sitting area with a cathedral ceiling and two walk-in closets. A fully mirrored master bath and Jacuzzi makes it feel like you’re living in a hotel suite.”
