Nestled amid grand live oaks and palmetto trees, this coastal estate feels worlds away from the stresses of everyday life. Rich with a relaxed Southern curb appeal, this cedar-shingle home comes complete with metal roofing that brings extra charm with the pitter-patter of a fleeting summer rain, a brick ground-floor level, graceful outdoor living spaces, and a welcoming, wraparound front porch complete with a joggling board.
Step inside one of two sets of windowed doors into the entry hall, and you'll be welcomed by the gathering room. Cozy with a gas fireplace with stone surround flanked by floor-to-ceiling white shelving, it lies beneath a high, white coffered ceiling and invites you to step to its rows of windows to take in the incredible views of the surrounding marsh.
Continue down the entry hall, and you'll see a formal dining room on your left. Painted a rich red and appointed not only with wide white crown molding and baseboard trim but with a built-in white sideboard and cabinetry, it also offers a row of windows overlooking the marsh and water.
The home's spacious kitchen is at the end of the entry hall. There, appointed with granite countertops, display cabinetry, appliances including a five-burner Dacor® cooktop, paneled GE Monogram® refrigerator, and dual Frigidaire® wall ovens, two center islands and a walk-in pantry await the home chef. The first of the center islands offers a breakfast bar and sink, and there's both a glass door to a wide screened porch with summer kitchen and a breakfast nook surrounded by a bowed window wall offering lovely views in three directions.
A private home office with built-in desk is tucked away to the other side of the kitchen, and there’s a wine cellar with compressor.
Take the home's central staircase or elevator to the second floor, where you’ll discover a study with a row of windows overlooking the gorgeous views. To the left are two guest suites, each with their own glass doors to a shared covered porch, as well as a conveniently located laundry room with utility sink.
To the right is the master suite wing with its private entrance. The bedroom, with its wide window wall and French doors, is expansive and features its own second-story balcony with stunning views. The bath offers his-and-hers sinks set into a rich wooden vanity with ample storage space, a large soaking tub beneath windows, a glassed-in walk-in shower with an additional handheld showerhead, and there are two generously sized his-and-hers walk-in closets set side by side.
The home's guesthouse makes hosting family and friends a breeze. With its own covered front porch and private entrance, your guests will be charmed not only by its great room with spacious living and dining areas but by its windowed full kitchen with granite countertops, clean white cabinetry, and stainless-steel single basin sink.
Each of its two ensuite bedrooms has its own delights. The first-floor bedroom comes with a sitting area and entry to the covered porch, and in the bath, both a walk-in shower and a clawfoot tub. The second-floor suite has a charmingly angled ceiling, French doors opening to its own sundeck, and a walk-in shower beneath a vaulted ceiling in the windowed bath.
Additional features of this spectacularly located home, near - but not too near - the world-renowned Ocean Course, the Kiawah Island Club's popular Beach Club, the championship Osprey Point golf course, the Egret Pond Fishing Dock, and the Cinder Creek Pavilion and Dock, include a side-entry four-car garage, tankless water heater, sound and security systems, impact-rated windows, and irrigation system.
