Simply said, this home is a charmer. A versatile, Mediterranean-inspired atmosphere infuses this Canvasback Pond backdrop with an Old-World style that welcomes and wows at every turn. Tasteful architectural elements reminiscent of the South of France include an ornamental turret, stucco exterior with French-tiled roof, cypress shutters, and a gorgeous loggia complete with an exposed, antique beam ceiling and stone walls and columns. With a central Island location across the street from the beach, this home is perfectly poised for entertaining friends, family, and multiple generations in an extraordinary, magical setting that feels like an escape to another place and time.
Overlooking the limestone-surround pool deck, the loggia provides an ideal spot for year-round outdoor living, entertaining, and relaxation with an outdoor kitchen and woodburning fireplace with 17th century stone mantle. The loggia is flanked by a heated and cooled pool and a beautifully landscaped, private backyard. Here, the beauty of Kiawah's natural world lies just beyond with a daily display of leaping fish and singing birds. The surroundings blend seamlessly with native pines, palmettos, and oaks giving the property a timeless appeal. Close your eyes, and you could very well be in Italy or France. This is the uniqueness of Kiawah and this property.
Indoors, exquisite interiors display stunning arched hallways and doorways, plaster ceilings and walls, limestone flooring, and antique doors, glass, and details across three levels. The main floor is the primary living space. Here, the great room enjoys show-stopping details such as a groin vault ceiling, black granite surround fireplace with an antique mantle from Provence, and six sets of symmetrically designed custom French doors - three across the home's front and three across the rear that open onto the loggia.
The gourmet kitchen features an exposed antique beam ceiling and columns, custom cabinetry with French-country finish, granite countertops, dual stainless farmhouse sink, Wolf® 8-burner range, and a custom vent hood. A temperature-controlled wine cellar with a custom antique glass and iron door holds 2,000+ bottles for the serious collector but also accommodates the more casual connoisseur. The nearby butler's pantry offers an additional sink, icemaker, and antique oak cabinetry. Adjacent to the kitchen, the morning room's floor-to-ceiling windows and 14-foot beamed ceiling overlook the pool deck and Canvasback Pond with a door opening onto the rear loggia. There are few views from a kitchen sink like this one.
A winding limestone staircase leads to the second level, which houses the master suite and two ensuite guest rooms. The master suite features a sitting area, dressing room, custom cypress shutters, and panoramic lagoon vistas at every turn. The luxurious bath is a retreat unto itself with an antique French porcelain soaking tub and a walk-in shower with waterfall shower head, bench seat, and limestone surround. The two adjoining guest suites each have ample closet storage and a private bath with antique French vanity and marble top. One bath has a tub/shower combo; the other, a walk-in shower.
A multi-purpose bunk room/playroom/office with full bath and charming dormer window seats is tucked quietly into the third level. A bedroom, full bath with oversized walk-in shower and custom vanity table, and media room provide additional flex space above the garage.
Other creature comforts come in the form of a fenced pool area, an elevator that reaches three floors, two-car garage with additional laundry for beach towels, cedar and mahogany outdoor shower, custom plantation shutters, and built-in speakers. This home is all about privacy, charm, and its beach location, just steps from Boardwalk 31.
