342 Surfsong Rd
With a soft grey stucco exterior and wrought iron detailing, this oceanfront home is reminiscent of an Italian Riviera villa, yet it exudes a coastal charm that is all its own. Symmetrical quad balconies and twin entry stairs frame a majestic Royal Palm tree. A cut stone and slate path winds through lush landscaping to keystone arches and columns, a timeless design theme that is repeated throughout the home’s interior.
Aptly named, Surfsong Road is one of Kiawah’s most desirable oceanfront addresses. Its mid-Island location means direct access to the beach is just outside your back door and dining, shopping, championship golf, and more are a bike ride away.
Despite its nearly 6,000 square feet, this home lives comfortably and is custom-made for its seaside setting. With nearly a half-acre, the homesite sits beneath a canopy of native hardwoods that provides cooling shade, sea breezes, and ample opportunities for viewing wildlife.
The entry foyer features wainscoting, stone flooring, and a grand, cylindrical staircase that winds upwards like a nautilus shell. The first level is a dedicated guest retreat with a sitting room, large piazza, and three ensuite bedrooms. A convenient gathering place, the sitting room has plenty of room for unwinding over games, conversation, or relaxing après beach. An adjacent sunroom, currently used as a home gym, opens directly onto the piazza. Each guest room has a private bath, ample closet space, and is large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed. Two of the guest suites have a private balcony.
Ascending the stairs to the second level, the living areas spread out before you with sweeping ocean vistas from the kitchen and living room to the generously-sized pub-style family room. Fine detailing such as coffered ceilings, dental molding, wainscoting, arched doorways, and stone surround fireplace provide a touch of elegance while a billiards table and handsome “pub” complete with wet bar, wine storage, and glass paneled cabinets in rich mahogany, add a touch of fun.
The large, eat-in kitchen is clad in rich, natural tones and textures played out in granite countertops, custom cabinetry with rope detailing, and stone backsplash and flooring. A large, center island houses a cooktop, prep sink, and breakfast bar that seats four. With a formal dining room just steps away and an upscale suite of appliances, efficient walk-in pantry, and butler’s pantry with a dishwasher, sink, ice maker, and wine cooler, this kitchen is designed for efficiency and easy entertaining.
An open floor plan connects the kitchen and family room. The family room has coffered ceilings, custom moldings, and large glass doors opening to the deck and ocean views. Also on the second level is a private office with a library of floor-to-ceiling custom cherry cabinets and bookshelves and a private balcony.
The third level is entirely dedicated to the master suite. Truly a haven of calm, this incredible space has a sizeable, private covered porch, a cozy fireplace and sitting area, and stunning, unimpeded ocean views from nearly every vantage. Other creature comforts include a large walk-in closet and a spacious master bath with double vanities, oversized frameless double shower, and a large, corner jet tub overlooking the ocean.
A large garage offers plenty of storage for kayaks, beach gear, and more, and the stucco exterior has been treated with a Rhino-Shield warrantied coating for low maintenance and upkeep. A 40-year roof was installed recently along with all new copper chimney caps. This home is offered partially furnished.
