A Kiawah Island Golf Membership Is Available
Beautifully shingled and remarkably expansive, the residence at 179 Flyway Drive sits on a full acre of land overlooking hole no. 18 of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course and an extensive Island lagoon beyond.
Privately located with only a pond across the road and no neighboring properties to either side, this gorgeous dwelling was designed by Camens Architectural Group, whose homes have appeared in publications from Charleston Living magazine to the New York Times.
Outside, the front of the residence delights with a wide, covered porch lined with Southern Cross-accented rails, a covered second-story balcony, and crisp landscaping nestled amidst native Island trees. The rear expands outward with two turrets flanking a private covered terrace looking out toward the view. A two-story guest house overlooks a gracefully curving heated pool and spa with a pale stone pool deck.
Step through the substantive mahogany front door into a foyer with a backlit tray ceiling. Classical curved walls open to an immaculate great room featuring a wood-burning fireplace, white coffered ceiling, expansive transom-topped windows and French doors leading to the rear terrace.
The wide-plank red oak hardwood flooring continues into a dining room with a table easily seating 10 and an expansive sideboard for entertaining.
An adjacent breakfast bar offers additional seating for four at the kitchen’s wide island. Marble countertops, stainless steel farmhouse sink set below ceiling-height windows, and high-end appliances including stainless steel Viking® double oven, gas cooktop, under-counter Miele® microwave and dishwasher, additional Bosch® dishwasher, paneled Sub-Zero® refrigerator, icemaker, prep sink, and heating drawer stand ready for the home chef. Double doors lead to a curving screen porch with additional outdoor dining area and a wood-burning fireplace set into a floor to ceiling stone wall.
Beyond the kitchen, past floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, lies a delightful hideaway: a sunlit home office with window-lined curved walls, a high tray ceiling with recessed lighting, and a French door opening to the terrace.
To the great room’s opposite side lies another surprise: a richly appointed game room lined with ceiling-height windows, coffered ceiling with dark wood beams, tall wood paneling, billiards table, and wet bar complete with wine cooler and inset flat-screen TV. Double doors lead to another private curved seating area.
Also on this floor is a tranquil guest suite with two walls of windows, recessed lighting, and wide molding.
A curving wooden staircase graced with shiplap wainscoting rises to the foyer’s side, offering an alternative to the residence’s elevator. Ascend it and you’ll find more surprises in store, each one breathtaking: a home office capped off by a curving wall of windows and French doors opening to the rear second-story balcony, and an exquisite home theater with a dramatically rising tray ceiling, wide projector screen, private balcony, and two tiers of movie recliner seating.
On this level are two more window-lined guest suites and an expansive primary suite with gas fireplace, tray ceiling, and sitting room with bookshelves, where a French door opens to the second-story front balcony. The primary bath is pristine with a soaking tub set between two white columns and twin vanities.
A second curving staircase leads to a third-floor bonus room with a gas fireplace and built-in stage, two charming children’s bedrooms, and a covered third-story porch hideaway overlooking the spectacular golf and water views.
The residence’s guesthouse is fully equipped with a windowed living room complete with a kitchenette and eating space and a cozy second-floor bedroom suite, where high windows ensure privacy and French doors open to a balcony set amidst treetops overlooking the pool and views.
Additional features of this nearly 8,500-square-foot fully furnished residence just down the lane from boardwalk no. 39 includes a wine cellar, laundry on the main and first floors, outdoor kitchen, gazebo, and four-car garage. Automatic mosquito mist spray, sound and security systems, tankless water heater, irrigation, and impact-rated windows and doors complete a highly desirable offering.
