This five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath, custom home enjoys beautiful marsh vistas and a quiet, peaceful location within The Preserve, one of Kiawah's premier communities. Clad in nature-inspired hues, the subtle cedar shake exterior with standing seam metal roof quietly blends into the surrounding landscape of marsh, oaks, pines, and palmettos. The home is expertly sited on the homesite, which is nearly an acre in size, to offer marsh views from nearly every room.
Just a stroll away, a unique collection of community amenities includes a bark-clad boathouse with canoe and kayak storage, a covered pier with docks, nature trails through some of the Island's most spectacular forest and wetland areas, and an observation tower that sights down the length of Blue Heron Pond. The beach and other Island attractions, such as golf, dining, fitness, and more, are a short bike ride away.
Custom details, such as wainscoting and furniture-grade cabinetry, join distinctive materials, such as Brazilian walnut floors and mahogany doors, to lend this home an elegant, welcoming sensibility.
The open plan interiors are designed for comfortable living and effortless entertaining. A vaulted ceiling and barreled passthrough grace the entry foyer while the gracious great room flows easily from the dining room to kitchen to outdoor living spaces.
The great room enjoys an abundance of natural light from windowed walls and four sets of French doors that open onto the rear deck and screened porch. A stone-surround fireplace rises towards the tongue-and-groove vaulted ceiling creating height, and custom built-ins add scale and sensible storage. An office is conveniently tucked just beyond the great room.
An eat-in kitchen with marble countertops and custom cabinetry is anchored by a large, central island complete with prep sink, wine chiller, bookshelves, and bar seating for six. A suite of new stainless appliances includes a Wolf® double oven and 6-burner cooktop and Sub-Zero® refrigerator. A butler's pantry houses additional wine storage, refrigerator, and a dishwasher. The two-story breakfast nook is lined with windows and opens onto the back deck.
This home offers dual master suites, one on each level. The first-floor master suite features a coffered ceiling, walk-in closet, sitting area with marsh views, and access to the screened porch. The upstairs master enjoys a private, covered porch overlooking the marsh. Both suites adjoin spa-like baths clad in marble with dual vanities, walk-in showers, and soaking tubs.
Upstairs, the landing area features a beadboard ceiling and is open to the great room below while two guest suites each offer a private bath and sun-filled spaces. The charming guest house, connected to the main home via an elevated, covered walkway, is outfitted with hardwood floors, a full bath, and coastal-inspired colors. The open living, dining, and kitchenette area offers plenty of space for friends and family to relax.
Abundant outdoor living spaces make for comfortable, year-round enjoyment of this stunning, marshfront setting. A screened porch features a fireplace and cozy furnishings while the covered deck provides ample outdoor dining opportunities overlooking the pool and spa.
Offered fully furnished, this home also includes additional parking for cars and boats, a central vacuum system, elevator, surround sound, and mosquito misting system. A Kiawah Island Club Membership is available with the purchase of this property.
