PRESS: MarketWatch, Barron’s Penta, Mansion Global Feature Record-Breaking Kiawah Island Closing
MarketWatch, Barron’s Penta, and Mansion Global, all Dow Jones publications, along with numerous local and regional publications, featured the record-breaking closing of the $20M Vanderhorst Estate on Kiawah Island.
The Vanderhorst Estate, a 16-acre waterfront property built more than 200 years ago on Kiawah Island, sold for $20.5 million, a record price for the region. It was exclusively listed through our company, Kiawah Island Real Estate.
The estate surpassed the next priciest sale in the Charleston area by about $250,000 and comes in the midst of the most active sales market the Island has ever seen, with first quarter volume up 171% for properties priced over $2.5 million, compared to the same time in 2020.
The sale included the mansion on the property and two adjoining lots.
Dating to 1803, the 6,800-square-foot main residence is one of the island’s two original houses, and the only one still in existence. It was built by Arnoldus Vanderhorst, a Revolutionary War soldier and politician who served as both the mayor of Charleston and as governor of South Carolina.
