A View with a Home: Cassique Summer Retreat

Categories: Community

Summertime retreats are a Charleston tradition. For centuries locals have abandoned the bustle of the city for cooler, more tranquil settings on nearby barrier islands—be it for a day, a weekend, or the entire sweltering summer.

For one busy young family in search of a serene escape from downtown Charleston, the view from Cassique near Kiawah Island was the main attraction. With a lot overlooking a tidal creek as well as the private community’s Tom Watson-designed golf course, the couple wanted the focus to be on the outdoors. “It’s such a beautiful setting,” says the mother. “We watch folks fly-fishing, wildlife in the marsh, and golfers on the greens. It’s all so very relaxing.”

Here, in this private community tucked between Kiawah and Seabrook islands, they have built a base for bonding—a four bed, four and a half bath, 3,200-square-foot house with style and grandeur that simultaneously embraces muddy paw prints and spilled juice boxes. It’s their home-away-from-home, where the beach beckons, the cares of city life are left 30 minutes down the road, and the alligators are proof positive you’re not on the peninsula anymore.
