129/132 Flyway Dr
The gorgeous Hamptons-style estate at 129/132 Flyway Drive, beautifully sited on nearly 2½ acres beside the Atlantic Ocean, has been fully renovated by the award-winning architects at Bevan & Liberatos and respected Kiawah builder Buffington Homes.
With its stunning ocean views, three levels of outdoor living space, and a private boardwalk, this light and airy four-story home showcases the best of Kiawah. Outside, there are the meticulously designed grounds with Charleston-style garden, regulation-sized tennis court, putting green, covered pavilion, and in-ground pool with outdoor grill area. The stunning grounds were also featured in a Forbes article celebrating the Island.
Step up the grand welcoming arms staircase and through the mahogany door, and you’ll be greeted by the sight of the ocean through a floor-to-ceiling window at the opposite end of the foyer. To your left rises a gracious stair, with custom shiplap wainscoting extending to the third floor; to your right is a discreet elevator accessing all floors and a half-bath tucked behind. The new seven-inch white oak hardwood floors continue through the first and second levels; the beautifully crafted moldings carry throughout the home.
Step to your right and enter the airy family room, with its high ceilings, new shiplap wainscoting, wall of windows and glass doors, and access to the covered seaside porch stretching 47 feet wide. The open kitchen and dining area are just beyond, with French doors leading to a side balcony with stairs leading down to the pool and grill area.
Enter the dining area first, with its white built-in dish hutch and shiplap wainscoting. It’s open to the gourmet kitchen where windows on three sides, including a window wall over the sink, flood the room with sunlight.
The white custom cabinetry with modern nickel cabinet pulls, honed Calacatta quartz countertops and backsplash, a new paneled ceiling, and kitchen island combine to form a picture of airy elegance. The home’s chef will appreciate the stainless-steel Wolf® range, 36-inch Sub-Zero® refrigerator with freezer drawers, additional 30-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers, undercounter in-line Everpure® water filtration system, stainless-steel wide-basin sink, and in the handsome butler’s pantry, the icemaker, polished nickel bar sink, stainless-steel microwave, and wine fridge built into the strikingly dark lower cabinetry.
Return to the foyer and step through double doors into the living room on the opposite side, with new full-height paneling, seating niche, and custom white built-in shelves flanking the new fireplace mantel and honed Sea Pearl quartzite surround. The wall of windows and glass doors leads to the oceanside porch with its handcrafted Chippendale rails, ipe decking, beadboard ceilings, and breathtaking views.
Enter the first-floor master suite from the living room or porch. Filled with natural light from windows and French doors on three sides, it leads past his-and-her closets with new closet systems to the spa-like master bath. A large window above the pedestal tub fills the room with light; the white custom dual vanity is topped with delicately veined Gioia Carrara honed marble countertops and wall-mounted faucets in polished nickel. The cool marble tile beneath your feet is new, and the lighting is from Circa Lighting. After a dip in the waves or morning cup of coffee on the porch, you might enjoy a leisurely respite in the large walk-in rainshower with multiple showerheads.
Also on the first floor is a large laundry room with undercounter washer and dryer, stainless-steel laundry sink, abundant counter space, and access to the side balcony.
Upstairs you’ll find the second-floor master suite with its new, elegant fireplace and French doors leading to the wide covered balcony. The windowed walk-in closet features custom cabinetry in contrasting wood, and there’s a built-in dresser below a row of mirrors in the adjacent bath hall. The master bath is serenely lovely, with herringbone-laid tile flooring, white custom dual vanity, delicately veined Gioia Carrara honed countertops, wall-mounted faucets, and large walk-in shower with ceiling-mounted rainshower head, mosaic floor of White Thasos, Carrara, and Calacatta marble, and built-in marble bench.
Tucked away beside the balcony, opposite the master bath, is a private home office filled with natural light from three walls of windows and glass doors.
Down a window-lined hallway, strikingly illuminated at night by two white-metal lighting fixtures, are two sunlit en suite guest bedrooms with direct access to the balcony. All guest suites have new closet systems and full baths with new custom vanities, countertops, fixtures, lighting, and tile.
On the third floor are two more guest suites with walk-in closets, new wool carpeting, and charming dormer windows overlooking both the sea and the front of the estate. Also new is the additional laundry space, with side-by-side washer and dryer hidden away behind hallway doors.
Kiawah’s concoction of sun, salt air, and coastal breezes is likely to beckon family and friends to the ground level, with its covered terrace, sundeck, pool patio, and adjacent indoor summer room with white shiplap walls, bar, and new, cool porcelain tile flooring. A dip in the pool might be followed by a stroll across the private, beautifully landscaped boardwalk to the Island’s pristine beach.
Additional features of this home include a two-car garage with plentiful storage space for beach and sporting gear on the ground level, new recessed LED ceiling lights and Lutron® switches throughout the home, new impact-rated Kolbe® windows and doors, and an attic sealed and dehumidified with new HVAC units.
Privately tucked away behind the second security gate in Vanderhorst Plantation and yet just a pleasant amble down the beach to many of Kiawah’s world-class amenities, including The Beach Club, 129/132 Flyway Drive offers the perfect place to begin building a lifetime of Island memories.
