349 Governor's Dr
The recently completed, shingle style home at 349 Governor’s Drive enjoys a southern exposure and invites outdoor living with its pool, water feature, two tiers of sundecks crafted of garapa wood, and stainless-steel deck cable rails enhancing views of a tranquil Kiawah pond.
Step through the impact-rated mahogany entry door into the sunny foyer. To the left rises a striking four-sided staircase, accented with cypress wood, streaming with natural light from three rows of windows.
An expansive great room lies just ahead. There, walls of windows and glass doors showcase the water views. Gorgeous custom cabinetry and seven-inch-plank white oak flooring run throughout the home, and a gas fireplace in the living room offers a cozy spot to gather with a glass of wine in the evenings.
The living room also offers access to the home’s large screened porch, and the adjacent dining area opens to the kitchen on one side and a large pool deck on the other.
Filled with sunlight from three sides, the chef’s kitchen offers a spacious center island with prep sink and undercounter microwave, commercial-grade stainless-steel appliances including a Thermador® six-burner cooktop, a window over the sink, and a large walk-in pantry with custom-built closet system.
The first-floor master suite is a private retreat with its own access to the screened porch, beautiful views, cypress wood accents, and a master bath with his-and-hers vanities topped with Carrara marble countertops, a Victoria + Albert® freestanding soaking tub beneath a sunny window, a large frameless-glass shower, Carrara marble floor tile, and an expansive walk-in closet with custom-built closet system and windows on two walls.
A laundry room with Carrara marble floor tile, sink, and side-by-side washer and dryer are conveniently located off the master hallway.
The second-floor master suite also features Carrara marble countertops and floor tile, a Victoria + Albert freestanding soaking tub, a large frameless-glass shower, and a closet with custom-built closet system.
Completing the second floor is a media room with adjoining bath, and two en suite bedrooms with closets also feature custom-built closet systems. As with the master baths, each guest bath offers Carrara marble countertops and frameless-glass showers. The first bedroom and media room enjoy verdant pond and golf views as well as direct access to a large second-floor balcony, perfect for a morning cup of coffee as the sun rises over the water.
Take a stroll around the lovely grounds, which are richly landscaped by Landplan Associates to include a live oak, palmetto trees, crepe myrtles, Mary Nell hollies, and masses of holly leaf osmanthus, podocarpus, lantana, sweet grass, ribbon grass, and sweet viburnum.
A curving drive leads to a dehumidified side-entry garage that fits four cars two by two in tandem, with windowed garage doors and a separate entry. There is an adjacent indoor storage space ideal for stowing beach gear, and an elevator shaft to all three levels of the home.
Additional features of this home include Andersen® impact-rated windows and sliding glass doors, Emtek® door hardware and spray foam insulation throughout, a Trane® high-efficiency HVAC with wireless thermostats, and a tankless water heater. The fine finishes have been selected by an interior designer.
Set within the privacy of Kiawah’s Egret Pintail neighborhood and located near hole no. 4 of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course, 349 Governor’s Drive is a stone’s throw from the picturesque Kiawah River and Cinder Creek. The Blue Heron Pond observation tower is just a stroll away, as is the Marsh Island tower with its stunning views of the vast marsh and river. Kiawah’s pristine ten-mile beach is just a bicycle ride away.
