169 High Dunes Ln
With timeless, protected views and direct access to 50 acres of waterways, trails, and parklands, this custom, marshfront home enjoys an enviable location within Ocean Park, one of Kiawah's newest and most prestigious enclaves. Long, marsh views extend unimpeded across the landscape to the iconic Ravenel Bridge in the distance. A dazzling mix of wildlife, shorebirds, and sky make the hustle and bustle of the real world seem far away, but creature comforts in the form of championship golf, dining, and the Members-only Marsh House and Beach Club are only a short walk or bike ride away.
Sitting on nearly an acre, this home brings New England seaside charm to the Carolina coast with its cedar shake roof and exteriors in warm hues of greens and browns. This residence was designed by Camens Architectural Group and built by Koenig Construction, two of Kiawah's most tenured firms, to embrace its peaceful surroundings.
An open floor plan allows for easy flow between living and dining and efficiency in entertaining guests, enjoying family and friends, or just relaxing. A host of upscale detailing, such as wide-plank walnut floors, coffered ceilings, wainscoting, intricate woodwork and exquisite moldings, and other architectural elements, add style and sophistication throughout.
Just beyond the entry foyer with its unique coffered ceiling and sweeping staircase, a well-designed mix of textures, shapes, and patterns, including architectural trusses and shiplap, make for a bright, airy great room. Highlighted by two stories of windows and a vaulted ceiling, the great room also offers a stone-surround fireplace flanked by custom built-ins and direct access to the covered porch, dining room, and kitchen.
Truly the heart of the home, the delightful kitchen has a shiplap ceiling, bright white cabinetry with backlit glass panels, stone countertops, and a huge center island that seats four. A suite of Thermador® appliances and a professional range hood makes the everyday gourmet chef feel right at home. Just off the kitchen, a cozy sunroom has a vaulted, wood-inlay ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the poolside patio and views of the marsh and river beyond. A formal dining room connects the living room and kitchen and has an adjacent wet bar with custom cabinetry, ice maker, and beverage cooler.
The master retreat, conveniently located on the main level, enjoys a large bay window overlooking the marsh and direct access to the covered porch via a pair of French doors. Designed in cool blues and golds, the master bath is a calming space that offers his and hers vanities, a dressing table, and a zero-entry shower clad in marble tiles.
A few steps from the main living area, a fun bunkroom is a made-for-kids getaway. Accommodating nine, the room has custom cabinetry, ample space for games and toys, and a private bath with a shower/tub combination. The upper floor is designed for privacy with three guest suites. Two large guest rooms enjoy private baths while the second master suite features a large bathroom with two vanities and long views of the marsh. The upstairs master also has a crib room.
A marshfront setting as perfect as this is best enjoyed out in the open where the salt air, rustling leaves, and general stillness settle the soul. Here, the patio and covered porch offer plenty of room to relax with a book, enjoy the sunset, or dine al fresco alongside the seemingly endless infinity pool that extends out into the marsh. Other conveniences include a 5-zone Sonos® sound system both indoors and out, a mosquito misting system, and a poolside bathroom.
