Situated on a nearly two-acre double lot along the Kiawah River, this showcase five-bedroom, seven-and-two-half-bath custom home enjoys plenty of room to breathe. Its shingle-style exterior with slate roof, triple dormers, and a wide front porch feels very much at home within its coastal setting of native live oaks, palmettos, and marsh grasses. Impeccable gardens with intimate, walled courtyards, layered plantings, terraced lawns with reclaimed Flagstone, and an infinity-edge saltwater pool and spa overlook the peaceful river creating a refined sense of retreat. A private, deepwater dock provides direct access to Lowcountry waterways.
Civilization feels miles away, yet this home is in The Settlement, a Kiawah Island Club community that not only offers a desirable central Island location, but also walking proximity to dining, spa, fitness, golf, and more at the Members-only River Course Clubhouse.
Rustic, yet refined, the interiors are reminiscent of a French country chateau. Soft patterns, muted colors, and reclaimed stone, wood, and other natural materials combine to create airy spaces that are warm and inviting. Exquisite detailing throughout includes hand-painted plaster finishes and flooring and custom stonework, woodwork, and metalwork.
From the stone-lined motor court, a warm entry porch opens into the sun-kissed formal living room, where a trio of floor-to-ceiling bronze doors with arched transoms frame river views and open onto the rear lawn. Old World influences come in the form of reclaimed hemlock beams, antique doors, and 200+-year-old limestone floors.
Flanking the living room are the dining room and library, both of which open to individual landscaped rear terraces via French doors and a brick firepit and cutting garden area enclosed by beautiful, elegant iron work. The dining room features a stone fireplace with antique wood mantel and hand-painted walls and ceiling. A butler's area just beyond the dining room offers a double-wine chiller. The handsome library is clad entirely in Louisiana Pecky Cyprus with a coffered ceiling and stone-surround fireplace. A wet bar with icemaker and beverage chiller are located just beyond for efficient entertaining.
The whitewashed kitchen features plaster walls, honed marble countertops, hand-painted flooring, tall casement windows, and a vaulted, barrel ceiling. There are two Sub-Zero® refrigerators in addition to two refrigerated drawers and two freezer drawers. A large center island offers ample space for preparing and serving with a prep sink, warming drawer, individual pellet icemaker, lite cabinet draws, and abundant shaker-style cabinetry. The butler's pantry houses a double oven, sink, dishwasher, and office area. Large, floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto a screened, dining porch and veranda with outdoor grilling kitchen. A breakfast room features a settee-style banquette tucked into large windows that overlook the river.
At the end of an elegant stair hall featuring custom, arched iron railings, a riverside mural and parquet floor opens into the great room. Here, a Fieldstone fireplace joins shiplap paneling and a vaulted ceiling for a comfortable, casual gathering space. A disappearing wall of floor-to-ceiling windows opens to the covered outdoor kitchen and pool deck for a seamless indoor/outdoor experience.
Designed for privacy, this home's sleeping quarters are well separated from the primary living spaces. The primary suite is on the second level with a covered private porch overlooking the river. His and hers bathrooms each have a walk-in shower and private water closet with a freestanding, soaking tub and dressing area. A sitting room across from the primary suite is currently used as a bedroom and has a full bath.
A guest suite with large windows, sitting area, and private porch has a large bath with freestanding copper tub and walk-in shower with lancet arch detailing. A third guest room, located on the second floor, has a barreled eyebrow dormer, shiplap accents, and a private bath with walk-in shower. Across the interior courtyard from the main house, a guest house boasts a sitting area/bedroom with a kitchenette and full bath featuring dual vanities and a walk-in shower.
Other notable features include 21 gas lanterns custom crafted by Bevolo in New Orleans, a 5-ton boat lift, 18-foot pull-up floating dock, and 30-foot floating pier. This home is fully geothermal with 12 closed wells and 5 full interior geothermal units.
