Surrounded by lush natural landscapes, residents here enjoy unmatched opportunities to connect to Kiawah’s unspoiled wildlife.

Designed by architect Skip Wallace and impeccably constructed by Solaris, the exterior is clad in cedar wood shingle siding, copper roofing, Charleston brick foundation and entry staircase, graceful gables and shutters, tall columns, covered porticos, and curved verandas. Award-winning landscape includes flowering plants and trees, tropical palms, and live oaks adorned with Spanish moss.
51 River Marsh Lane features a reverse floor plan, successfully capitalizing on the vast river views. From the expansive outdoor decks, the views here are unmatched. Sunsets can be enjoyed year round, while cool breezes encourage time spent outdoors either lounging in the sun or dining under the shade.
