A Kiawah Island Golf Membership Is Available
The Georgian-style mansion at 39 Ocean Course Drive lies on the deepest homesite of one of Kiawah’s most coveted drives. It is placed to take advantage of breathtaking views of the world-renowned Ocean Course, storied as the site of the 1991 Ryder Cup “War on the Shore” all the way to the 2021 PGA Tournament and the broad blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It graciously offers dazzling 360-degree views, from a spacious rooftop deck, of the Island’s tranquil marshes, rivers, lagoons, tidal creeks, and tree-topped lands. Designed by award-winning architecture firm Bill Huey and Associates, this gorgeous mansion has been featured in several publications and ESPN.
On approach, the residence’s exterior impresses with two tall tiers of columned front porches rising from immaculately landscaped garden, foliage and trees. Three dormer windows crown a shingled roof with copper accents, and twin chimneys flank the expansive, private rooftop deck with its spectacular views. Ascend the gracefully iron-railed staircase to the front porch with its rich wood-lined ceiling, joggling boards, and mahogany glass doors flanked by tall Southern shutters, and pause to admire the treetop views before passing beneath the exquisite fanlight into an interior cool and graceful, yet bright with Island sunlight.
Just past a spectacular wooden staircase, spiraling like a symphony three stories into the air, a spacious family room opens up. Lined with wide crown molding and floored with richly toned, wide-plank hardwood, its glass doors open to a broad piazza. Step outside and you’ll find a welcoming-arms staircase descending to the manicured grounds, outdoor shower, and foot shower below. To one side, a heated saltwater infinity-edge pool and spa overlook the incredible views.
Two additional sets of mahogany glass doors lead from the piazza into a first primary bedroom elegantly situated to take advantage of views of both the golf course and pool. Its bath is immaculate with glass-frosted cabinetry and a sleek bathtub set into a sunroom where paned windows gracefully frame the fresh green leaves of treetops.
To the opposite side of the family room lies a corner guest suite, also superbly appointed with a high ceiling, wide crown molding, glass doors, a wide frameless-glass shower, and a curved bathtub set into its own sunroom niche.
Climb to the second floor via the exquisitely curving staircase or the home’s four-story elevator, and a new delight is revealed: a richly appointed library with ceiling medallion, a wide, gracefully curving bookcase alcove, and nearly floor-to-ceiling window hidden privately away in the home’s corner. In this
sanctuary for a lover of quiet or of books, a set of glass doors leads to the second front porch for a breath of fresh air.
The centerpiece of this floor is the spacious great room with its white-beamed ceiling, wide sets of glass doors framing views of holes no. 10, 17, and 18 of The Ocean Course, gas fireplace with granite surround, and a 65-inch flat-screen television. The living room opens without interruption into a beautifully appointed dining room with a round table of exquisite dark wood, glass doors and windows on two sides, and a sunlit reading alcove with a built-in banquette perfect for curling up with a cup of tea.
The sunlit kitchen is luxurious with a spacious island, white antiqued cabinetry reaching up to a high ceiling, two stainless-steel farmhouse sinks, a wine cooler, single and double ovens, and a butler’s pantry equipped with a second washer and dryer, and sink. A hidden television raised and lowered by remote, dual dishwashers and a warming drawer, are a few of the other added bonuses the kitchen has to offer. Glass doors lead to the second-story front porch with tables positioned for al fresco dining amidst cooling breezes.
A second primary suite completes this floor. There, two sets of mahogany glass doors lead from the bedroom to the wide upper piazza, a window seat beckons in a cozy alcove beneath a tall, curved ceiling, and a bathtub lies in a sunroom niche beneath a suspended work of art. The wide walk-in shower offers two built-in benches, with a towel warming drawer conveniently located nearby and the bath’s mirror wall incorporates a TV.
On the third level is a new indulgence: the home’s own pub with a built-in bar, rich wooden cabinetry, wine cooler, beverage refrigerator, icemaker, dishwasher, and sink. It lies across the stair foyer from a billiards and game room complete with three wall-mounted flat-screen TVs and a row of French doors opening to a dazzling three-story balcony. There, amidst golf, ocean, and lagoon views that take the breath away, a spiral staircase curves up into the air, emerging onto a wide, iron-railed rooftop deck where the sky is quite literally the limit.
Offered fully furnished, this premiere HardiePlank® lap-sided residence comes with professional landscape lighting in both front and back, a climate-controlled four-car garage opening to a rear loggia and front terrace, a spacious lockout storage room, security and irrigation systems, tankless water heaters, and impact-rated doors and windows.
