16 Surfsong Rd
Designed as the perfect Kiawah Island vacation home by the award-winning architect Marc Camens and Elizabeth Prioleau Interiors and built by McBennett Luen Homes, 16 Surfsong Road can be enjoyed equally by an individual with fine taste or a houseful of appreciative guests.
Surfsong Road runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean, making it an ideal spot to get away from it all—and it’s backed by a wide, picturesque pond, providing a lovely view framed by this recently constructed home’s ipe-wood deck, heated saltwater infinity pool, and heated spa.
The outdoor living spaces of this beautifully designed cedar-shake home, just steps away from Kiawah’s pristine 10-mile beach, also include 1,558 square feet of deck space, seating for six in the screened porch, seating for six more on the covered porch, and a front porch with rocking chairs.
The screened porch comes with a stone fireplace, privacy shades, built-in Bromic® heaters, and overhead fan, and adjacent to the kitchen there’s a gas grill area with cooling fan and storage.
Ascend the front stairs and a mahogany front door with sunny sidelights opens into an airy foyer with views of the pond straight ahead through a wall of windows. Dark wide-plank hardwood floors stretch out underfoot, paired with custom wood trim and tall white-painted shiplap wainscoting throughout much of the home.
Step into the high-ceilinged great room and you’ll enjoy not only the verdant view and row of large, transomed windows but a gas fireplace flanked by white built-in cabinetry and illuminated shelves, white ceiling beams, and direct access to the screened porch. A game table also used for informal breakfast seating and a formal dining room, which together can easily seat 16, lead to the white gourmet kitchen with large, furniture-like island charmingly painted the color of the sea.
Designed to be used by more than one chef at once, the kitchen offers spacious granite countertops, Wood-Mode® cabinetry, plentiful storage supplemented by the pantry and butler’s pantry, and professional-grade stainless-steel appliances; only the Sub-Zero® French-door refrigerator and KitchenAid® dishwasher diverge, with custom panel fronts matching the white cabinets.
A Wolf® five-burner gas cooktop is set into the center island, and there’s a Wolf wall oven and steam oven, Whirlpool® microwave, and rows of windows overlooking the front porch above the farmhouse sink.
The kitchen was also designed to give swimmers fresh from the pool easy access to a half-bath, shelving for beach towels and sunscreen, and a separate drinks area with a large Sub-Zero refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher, granite countertops, and ceramic tile flooring. After they’ve had their fill of fun in the sun, they can drop off their swimming gear in the laundry room with large-capacity Whirlpool washer and dryer, utility sink, ironing board, and ample counter space and cabinetry.
Also on the main level is the master suite, which can be locked off from the rest of the home so family and friends can vacation at the house even when the owners aren’t present. Included is a sunny bath with his-and-hers vanities, large frameless-glass walk-in shower, and hardwood floors… and up a private set of stairs is a personal retreat with a breakfast bar including a small Sub-Zero refrigerator, sink, microwave, and cabinetry, and a large closet with built-in drawers. Across the hallway is a second small laundry with granite countertops and Whirlpool washer and dryer.
Guests can take the gorgeous hardwood stairs in the foyer to the second level to reach an open loft used as a media room and two spacious bedrooms with king beds, custom wooden luggage racks, and baths with granite countertops. There’s also an en suite bunk room with two built-in twin bunk beds complete with reading lights, sleeping four in comfort.
Located in Kiawah’s desirable Vanderhorst Beach neighborhood just a stone’s throw from the Jack-Nicklaus-designed Turtle Point golf course, this home is elevator-ready, with an elevator shaft reaching all three levels, currently used as three large closets. The stairs to the two-car garage are finished with painted trim and walls, and the garage is finished. An unfinished back area with a ping-pong table and overhead fan offers potential for a game room or extra storage space.
Additional features of this fully furnished home include Anderson® impact-rated windows and exterior doors; solid-wood interior doors, front door, and garage doors; three separate HVAC zones, special dehumidifying units, two tankless water heaters, a Sonos® sound system, a security systems, and oh-so-comfortable Tempur-Pedic® mattresses.
