160 Ocean Palms Ct
A celebration of luxurious living and magnificent seaside beauty, the grand estate at 160 Ocean Palms Court claims prime placement along Kiawah’s extraordinary shoreline. The Mediterranean-inspired retreat, designed by celebrated architect Christopher Rose, pairs privacy with privilege in its gated border and exclusive boardwalk to the stunning beach.
Bennett-Hofford’s reputation for excellence is evident in the main home’s impeccable craftsmanship and the construction of the separate guest house. Outdoor living spaces include a tree-shaded, in-terrace pool, several balconies, a fireplace-warmed courtyard, and a rooftop terrace flaunting breathtaking, Lowcountry views.
Architectural flourishes begin even before entering the home. A vaulted wooden ceiling and distinctive stone tiling lead to the elegantly arched front door. Inside, a four-story curving staircase with an ornamental balustrade fortifies the beauty of the foyer.
Just beyond the impressive home entrance, a sizable great room encourages lively social gatherings. Two sets of floor-to-ceiling glass doors with transom windows open onto a vast terrace, stretching across the entire rear side of the home. With its coffered ceiling, stone mantel fireplace, and gracious dining area, the great room exudes a warm, inviting aesthetic for entertaining friends and family. The mindful row placement of several windows frame vistas of the surrounding Lowcountry.
The gourmet kitchen’s top-tier appliance suite encourages ambitious menu planning. A spacious center island features a Wolf® gas cooktop and Wolf ventilation. A duet of Wolf stainless steel wall ovens, two paneled Sub-Zero® refrigerators, and two Bosch® dishwashers ensure that entertaining even a large number of guests is carried off with aplomb. A separate wet bar features a Sub-Zero wine cooler for state-of-the-art storage. Large windows welcome natural light across the rich, dark cabinetry and glass display cabinets throughout the day. Granite countertops and sleek hardware finesse the aesthetic, and two walk-in pantries serve as an ample repository for all cooking essentials.
The ocean side master suite streams with natural light, compliments of large windows and a double set of floor-to-ceiling glass doors. One set opens onto a charming rear terrace; the other accesses a side balcony overlooking a cozy courtyard, kept warm year-round by an outdoor fireplace. The master bedroom’s wood-beamed vaulted ceiling maximizes the grandeur of the space, which includes a large walk-in closet. In the master bath, end of day decadence is fostered by an expansive walk-in windowed rain shower with dual showerheads. His-and-hers vanities with granite countertops and under-counter sinks allow for dual access to morning grooming essentials. And in furthering the home’s inside/outside connectivity, a pair of elegant glass doors open up from the bathroom to the courtyard.
The second floor, accessible by staircase or elevator, is trimmed with wide white crown and baseboard molding throughout. On the landing, an open loft leads into the home office. The wisdom in the floorplans, which include an attendant full bath and a semi-covered balcony, allows for the office to serve as an accommodating guest suite when needed.
Each of the second floor’s additional two guest suites feature glass doors leading to balconies, walk-in closets, and full baths with his-and-hers vanities and frameless-glass walk-in showers.
On the third floor, a stunning media room and library reveal the crowning stroke of the home’s architectural artistry. A striking combination of rich, dark, built-in book shelving and cabinetry, the space dazzles with a spectacular, vaulted, wood-beamed ceiling and a full wet bar, complete with a dishwasher, ice maker, and a two-drawer beverage refrigerator. The room’s appeal is furthered by two sets of glass doors that open to a rooftop terrace and the extraordinary views beyond.
Overnight guests enjoy the privacy provided by the estate’s separate guesthouse. Accessed by both the main home’s front porch and courtyard, a spacious living room and front balcony, a half bath, and a kitchenette with a dishwasher, refrigerator, and washer/dryer occupy the first floor. A staircase leads to the second floor’s two guest suites, each with full baths and double vanities. In addition, the second bedroom features a small balcony overlooking the courtyard.
160 Ocean Palms Court’s location is enviably close to both Kiawah’s acclaimed shoreline and many of the Island’s most prized amenities including the Kiawah Island Club’s popular Beach Club and the world-renowned Ocean Course, site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships.
