549 Skimmer Ct
The exquisitely designed home at 549 Skimmer Court impresses with curb appeal in the front and incredible water and golf views to the rear. Because its homesite extends beyond neighboring lots, nothing blocks its views—from both floors—up and down Kiawah’s picturesque Egret Pond.
Located across the pond’s rippling water from hole no. 2 of the award-winning, Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course, 549 Skimmer Court boasts a 737-square-foot rear sundeck and 188-square-foot screened porch in addition to its front porch, each inviting evening cocktails or morning coffee among the Island’s graceful white egrets.
Ascend the flared brick staircase to the front door with its sidelights and transoms and enter the pleasingly symmetrical foyer with its lovely white trim and Australian cypress floors. To the left is a wood-paneled study with a gas fireplace, coffered ceiling, and French pocket doors; to the right is the high-ceilinged dining room with tall windows and elegant furniture easily seating eight or more.
Straight ahead is the great room with its wall of transomed glass doors drawing the eye to the lush water views. Beneath a white coffered ceiling, the gas fireplace to the left is flanked by custom white built-in cabinetry and shelving; to the right is an enormous pass-through window inviting conversation with the home chef in the gourmet kitchen.
Featuring white cabinetry, pale granite countertops, a striking wooden breakfast bar, paneled Sub-Zero® refrigerator, pantry, and furniture-inspired central island with extra seating for two, the kitchen’s stainless-steel appliances including double wall ovens, wide gas cooktop, and undercounter wine refrigerator, will please any chef. Rows of windows in the adjacent breakfast room invite streams of natural light inside.
The master suite with its dramatic curved wall of windows framing the view is tucked away for privacy in a corner of the main level. The master bath features a sunny soaking tub, frameless-glass walk-in shower with built-in bench, his-and-hers sinks, stereo speakers, and an enormous walk-in closet.
Upstairs, accessed via a stairway tucked next to the spacious laundry room on the opposite side of the main level, is a haven for guests. There’s a large family room with a tray ceiling, perfect for watching movies on the wide-screen TV or taking in the view from the adjacent screened porch.
A junior suite guest room, with a full bath and walk-in closet, also enjoys access to a second-floor porch. Guests may have a hard time deciding between it and the octagonal, window-lined guest room overlooking the view on the opposite side of the second floor. Two additional guest suites and a mini kitchen round out the level.
Located in Kiawah’s desirable Egret Pintail neighborhood, this fully furnished home includes sound, security, and irrigation systems. A Kiawah Island Club Golf Membership is available with the purchase of this property.
