28 Bufflehead Dr
Gracie House welcomes you with stunning Georgian Colonial architecture and sweeping vistas of Kiawah’s gorgeous Canvasback Pond and hole no. 17 of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course.
This spacious four-bedroom home, located at 28 Bufflehead Drive in Kiawah’s quiet Egret Pintail neighborhood just past the second security gate, is only a five-minute stroll from the Island’s immaculate ten-mile beach. Privacy and serenity are assured with no further development allowed in the home’s vicinity.
Expansive outdoor living spaces—including two tiers of covered porches, an open-air balcony, and sundeck all emanating Southern charm—take advantage of the home’s east-west orientation, showcasing stunning sunrises and sunsets, making every day feel like an island dream. Nature lovers will enjoy watching snowy egrets, great blue herons, and bald eagles on their flight paths over Canvasback Pond. Leisurely walks among the exceptionally designed landscape, including a generously sized back yard that will easily accommodate a swimming pool, are a delight.
Inside, the elegantly appointed rooms are airy with lovely white trim, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and large windows. A sunny dining room and a living room with gas fireplace and beautifully rendered custom wallpaper displaying a scene inspired by wildlife on Kiawah—hand-painted by Gracie, a historic studio that has done interiors for the White House—flank the spacious foyer.
Lining the rear of the home, three sets of glass doors topped with half-moon windows in the large great room, kitchen, and breakfast nook frame the exquisite views and lead to a 56-foot-wide covered porch and sundeck; turn the corner and you’ll find a 27-foot screened porch perfect for al fresco dining.
The white gourmet kitchen is spectacular. A food and family lover’s paradise with a newly renovated, highly efficient design inspired by Ladurée in New York City’s Soho, it includes a separate bakery station and entertainment bar inviting intimate gatherings of family and friends. Master chef Michael Toscano, owner of Le Farfalle in historic downtown Charleston, has twice cooked here, and noted it was one of the most professionally equipped home kitchens he had encountered.
