169 Flyway Dr
The perfect blend of classic beachfront and upscale sophistication in this custom home at 169 Flyway Drive presents a unique opportunity to fall in love with Kiawah all over again. From the entry level pool deck overlooking the swaying sea grasses amidst the dunes to the many living spaces throughout, you will be intoxicated by the allure of this seaside retreat.
This classic shingle style coastal home, perched oceanfront on the highly coveted Flyway Drive has been completely transformed from the ground up by acclaimed architect and designer Mark Maresca with interior design by Cortney Bishop. With the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop, a coastal haven was formed which takes full advantage of the home’s natural surroundings, embracing its panoramic seascape vistas. The tonal palette and tactile textures bring the outside in and provide a cohesive feel.
From the lushly landscaped entry drive and gracious front porch to the airy two-story entrance foyer with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, this home welcomes all who enter.
Each floor has a distinct personality that allows both livability and privacy. Greeted by the two story foyer with shiplap walls, arched hallways, and fumed white oak floors, the first floor leads you through the family room to a wall of windows and French doors, out to the pool deck, and down your private boardwalk to 10 miles of white sandy beaches. Two spacious suites offer guests easy access to the pool, while a bunkroom wing for younger guests includes a playroom and large bath with individual cubbies for robes and slippers.
The second floor features understated elegance in the shared living areas delivering peace and tranquility with a nearly 180 degree view of the Atlantic shore. The architectural details remain subtle on the main floor with shiplap-lined walls, beamed ceilings, transom windows above the doors, and marble carried from the gourmet kitchen through the butler’s pantry to the bar. The great room has a wall of floor to ceiling windows—ideal for watching day break—and a slate fireplace to curl up next to on cool winter evenings. The dining room flows perfectly from both the living room and kitchen with a window seat and evening porch for sunset viewing.
The third floor, fully dedicated to the master suite, is accessed by the private back staircase or elevator. A sunny and serene retreat with its vaulted ceiling, the master bedroom offers exceptional views of the ocean. Just off the entry hall is a space for office work or reading. His and hers bathrooms meet in a large walk-in closet. Additionally, a sleeping porch is the perfect place to escape with a good book or cup of coffee.
Located behind the second gate in Vanderhorst Plantation, this home sits oceanfront with a private boardwalk with direct access to Kiawah’s 10-mile beach and just minutes from The Kiawah Island Club amenities and the famed Ocean Course. A Kiawah Island Club Golf Membership is available with this property.
