This stunning, six-bedroom, six full- and two-half bath residence fully embraces its riverfront surroundings with sweeping views of the Kiawah River and direct access to gracious outdoor living from every room. With multiple interior places to gather or retreat and a generous 2,761 square feet of porches, verandas, and decks, this home is efficiently designed for entertaining multiple generations for full- or part-time living. A private dock with boat lift provides immediate deepwater access where boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing are all part of daily life.
Located within Rhett’s Bluff, a private community flanked by Bass Pond and the Kiawah River, this home’s one acre, riverside setting feels miles away, yet its mid-Island location is convenient to all of Kiawah’s world-class amenities, miles of private walking trails, and the neighborhood pavilion and boat landing. Members-only golf, dining, fitness, and spa are all just a short bike ride away.
An aesthetically pleasing mix of cedar shake siding, copper roofing, ipe decking, wraparound porches, and Old Charleston brick detailing creates a stately exterior that blends seamlessly into the mature Lowcountry landscape. A lush canopy of native pines, palmettos, and oaks accented by native flowering shrubs and plants provide peaceful privacy and habitat for Kiawah’s famed wildlife.
Inspired by the natural surroundings, curved walls and arched doorways, windows, and trim work mirror the serpentine flow of the river beyond giving the home a harmonious flow. This fluid design softens edge and scale and balances space and energy across the home’s three levels. Exquisite interior detailing includes beamed, paneled, and coffered ceilings, wide-plank oak flooring, exposed brick and stone appointments, two oversized gas fireplaces, distinctive custom millwork and moldings, and clever built-ins.
Graced by a sweeping, curved staircase with wrought iron railings, the foyer provides entrée to a handsome clubroom and two ensuite guest rooms and a bunkroom. The clubroom features rich pecan walls, beadboard ceilings, and corner-to-corner windows overlooking the Kiawah River. Bookended by a symmetrical pair of built-ins for media, display, and storage, the clubroom opens directly onto the rear covered veranda. Both first-floor guest suites enjoy panoramic river views, travertine- and marble-appointed ensuite bathrooms, high ceilings, crown molding, and glass doors that open onto covered porches.
The second floor is home to two additional guest rooms and the primary living space. Several Old Charleston brick archways add timeless Lowcountry character and softly connect the living room with the dining room and kitchen. Brightened by a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows framing river views, the living room features architectural columns topped by an exposed timber beam, a coffered ceiling, and an oversized gas fireplace. An attendant library nook is outfitted with a cozy daybed and custom, built-in bookshelves.
The gourmet kitchen features soapstone perimeter counters, abundant custom and glass-front cabinetry, shiplap walls, and a soapstone backsplash. A 10-foot, marble-topped center island adds storage and counter seating, and a recessed cooking hearth, clad in soapstone features a Viking gas range. The suite of upscale appliance also includes two SubZero refrigerators, SubZero refrigerated drawers, two dishwashers, and two ovens. A butler’s pantry tucked behind arched pocket doors includes a wine chiller and ample storage. The formal dining room enjoys panoramic river views through large picture windows and two sets of glass doors that open onto a screened, dining porch, complete with a commercial-grade grilling station.
The guest suites located on the second floor have high ceilings, abundant natural light, ensuite bathrooms, and private porches that hover just above the tree canopy.
The third floor is devoted entirely to the primary suite, which includes a private foyer, separate office, and a generous sitting room with gas fireplace, custom built-ins, and direct access to a private covered porch and sundeck. The gracious bedroom features a wooden, barreled ceiling, oversized windows with long river views, two walk-in closets, built-in cabinetry, and a hidden doorway into the ensuite bath. With travertine flooring and tilework, the expansive, spa-inspired bath includes a large, walk-in shower with curved wall and porthole window, a soaking tub, dual vanities, and a second full laundry room.
Additional home features include: an elevator to all levels; Lutron electronic lighting, security, and sound system throughout; new audio-visual equipment; expansive mud / utility room; outdoor irrigation systems; and new dock lighting. The garage accommodates parking four or more cars and offers temperature-controlled storage, new cabinetry, and a new epoxied floor. Other recent upgrades include a new exterior grill and stair runner.
