173 Marsh Island Dr
Designed in the style of a Charleston family home, 173 Marsh Island Drive is a stunning four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom island retreat with an expansive front porch, traditional shutters, and lanterns. Quality construction includes a raised foundation with HardiPlank® siding, exquisite finishes throughout, and ipe decking—all designed with the marsh and river views as the focal point for this relaxed coastal getaway.
Meticulously maintained, this residence is situated on a quiet street within an established neighborhood near the Beach Club and the Ocean Course. From the home’s outdoor living spaces, total privacy can be expected as there are no properties within sight across the panoramic Lowcountry views.
Inside, the great room features beautifully coffered ceilings, crown molding, golden oak hardwood floors, and a wood burning fireplace with LP gas option. Built-in cabinets on either side conceal an entertainment system, and wall-to-wall windows highlight the picturesque marsh views beyond.
Twin French doors in the living room open to the ipe deck and the wood-paneled screened porch. Sweeping marsh vistas extend all the way to the Kiawah River from these outdoor spaces where family and friends can come together and enjoy the cool breezes while taking in the sights and sounds of Kiawah’s abundant native wildlife.
In the kitchen, stainless steel appliances and ample seating provide a functional and comfortable space for meal preparation and entertaining. Custom cabinets and granite countertops are combined with a large center island, a GE Monogram® gas cooktop, double ovens, refrigerator and freezer, microwave, warming drawer, and elevated Bosch® dishwasher. A casual dining area with a bay window opens the kitchen to the living room, perfectly positioned to enjoy the views.
The dining room is located just off the kitchen and boasts wainscoting, crown molding, large picture windows, and like nearly every room on the first floor, it embraces the vast marsh views.
A guest suite completes the main level and features hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, glass French doors leading out to the front porch, and a full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a marble-topped vanity.
Upstairs, the spacious master suite with a walk-in closet has its own private deck overlooking the Lowcountry scenery, and a well-appointed master bathroom is complete with a granite vanity, his-and-her sinks, ceramic tile floors, a relaxing soaking tub, glass-enclosed walk in shower, and a separate water closet.
A sitting room with wrap-around views is currently being used as an office. Featuring built-in wood cabinets, shelves, and a desk, this flexible space could easily be used as a fourth bedroom as it shares a full bathroom with the neighboring guest room. A kitchenette is located in the hallway, conveniently serving upstairs guests as a coffee bar with a sink and refrigerator.
Further adding to the convenience of residents and guests, 173 Marsh Island Drive features parking for 2 cars with dual garage entrances underneath the right side of the home. To the left is a separate access, large enough to store a boat, concealed by a latticework sliding door.
Additional features of 173 Marsh Island Drive include an elevator from the garage to the first and second floors, a sound system, Gundfus® hot water system, an irrigation system, landscape and outdoor lighting, outdoor shower off the garage, hurricane-rated doors and windows, and a security system. A Kiawah Island Club Golf Membership is available with this property.
