174 Glen Abbey
Beautifully sited on a crisply landscaped homesite with a newly redone, gracefully curving drive within private Vanderhorst Plantation beyond Kiawah’s second security gate, it offers easy access to Kiawah’s immaculate beach via boardwalks no. 30 and 31. Only the pond and a single boulevard separate it from the Atlantic Ocean.
A covered front porch with clean wire-cable railings welcomes you to step inside via the windowed front door. From the sunny foyer it’s a few steps up to the spacious, light-filled great room. White ceiling beams stretch overhead, wide-plank hardwood floors stretch beneath your feet, a fireplace is flanked by crisp white cabinetry and display shelving, and two sets of glass doors lead to the 956-square-foot sundeck extending the width of the house.
The dining room with its tray ceiling opens to the living room, as does the white gourmet kitchen with its wide center island offering additional seating for four. The countertops are a lovely pale granite, the Kitchen Aid® appliances are all stainless steel, and there’s a Uline® wine cooler beside a glass door leading to a screened porch with a propane grill, inviting al fresco dining amid the sea breezes. A pantry and extra kitchen shelving beneath a pass-through window to the dining room offer additional storage space.
On the opposite side of the living room there’s a half bath and a guest bedroom that doubles as a home office, but the majority of the wing is devoted to the master suite. Painted in a tranquil sea blue, surrounded by windows and glass doors on three sides, the bedroom enjoys private access to a covered porch leading to the pool. The master bath is light and bright, with a spacious walk-in shower, his-and-hers sinks, pale ceramic tile flooring, and walk-in closet.
Upstairs are three large en suite guest bedrooms; the first enjoys an enormous bath with an angled ceiling, windowed soaking tub and shower, and his-and-hers sinks.
Additional features of this fully furnished home include a garage accommodating two cars, an irrigation system, outdoor shower, and encapsulated basement.
