The epitome of gracious Island living and elegance, the residence at 21 Cormorant Island is a serene, marsh-side retreat in an enclave accessed by a picturesque wooden bridge at the heart of Kiawah’s carefully preserved natural environment.
Outside the cedar shake house and under the patina of a copper roof, the graceful staircase will whisk you and your guests up under an arched entry and into utter serenity in this most welcoming of homes. Once in the foyer, you step into the expansive center room of this light-filled home. You are met with three sets of arches stretching upwards over two levels of living. Then, as you shift your gaze to the rear wall, you see through the bank of windows, the serenity of Kiawah Island’s emerald and azure marsh open as far as the eye can see - past your gloriously landscaped pool and to the Bass River and beyond.
Exceptional materials and great attention to detail are everywhere you look such as Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, custom moldings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a coffered cathedral ceiling. The great room offers a gas fireplace with built-in storage on either side.
With six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths, you can accommodate extended family and
friends with ease. The four sets of arches leading to the dining room frame your table adding the ambiance of a European bistro.
No matter what you feel like sautéing, basting, or baking, the beautiful kitchen is up to the challenge. Its Sub-Zero cabinet-front fridge, wine cooler, and two fridge doors in the island have plenty of room for everyday essentials, as well as food for a crowd. You’ll also love the six-burner Viking range and cabinet-front GE Profile dishwasher.
The center island, vegetable sink, and farmhouse sink expand the work area so households with dual chefs can prepare meals in tandem. A subway tile backsplash and soapstone countertops contribute to the look of this well-thought-out kitchen with its luxurious beadboard cabinetry. Open the kitchen door to a large, screened porch with views of the marsh and the pool. A large table allows the entire family to dine outside during Kiawah's wonderful spring an fall. The porch also contains a summer kitchen with a built-in grill, separate burners, plentiful storage and stainless steel back wall and exhaust fan.
For casual dining back inside, an inviting breakfast area awaits, and a marsh view beckons through an archway into the living room. With a bar this well-dressed, you may never want to go out for drinks again. Soapstone countertops and seating for four make this the perfect place to catch the latest game scores before dinner. A door to the wine cellar makes accessing extra bottles of your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon quick and convenient.
The total living first-level floor plan also includes a guest room, with a wonderful marsh view, a walk-in closet, a marble tile floor, and custom marble vanity, as well as an office accessed through double doors. The large laundry room on this floor has abundant counter space and a sink.
With four well-designed guest rooms, the second floor of 21 Cormorant Island Lane offers exceptional sleeping accommodations. Two of the rooms have marsh views, and marble baths with frameless glass showers add beauty and elegance. Late-night readers and earlier risers find the sitting nook overlooking the first floor very convenient when their spouses are still sleeping.
The primary suite is a world unto itself. The private screened balcony overlooking the marsh offers the owners an inspiring view to start the day. The huge walk-in, California-style closet provides room to keep your wardrobe well-organized and ready for any event.
The marsh view from the bathtub and built-in cabinetry takes a relaxing bath to a whole new level. The stone shower mirrors Kiawah’s commitment to the natural environment, and dual granite vanities extend the effect. The rain shower head pours on cooling water that feels exquisite after an afternoon at the beach.
With 4,989 heated square feet, 818 square feet of decks, 465 square feet of porches, and a backyard that stretches to the horizon of this special sea island, 21 Cormorant Island Lane is as spacious as it feels.
The heated pool is the perfect place to take in the glorious red and orange sunsets framed by the lush marsh background. Family and friends alike will delight in the relaxing sounds of the waterfall while admiring the planters full of beautiful flowers. The large covered bar offers counter seating for five and is accompanied by a grill, sink, and plenty of storage space. Outdoor entertainment will be a pleasure all year round in this garden paradise.
Other features include a large garage with a dehumidifier, sound system, security system, landscape lighting, a central vacuum, and a backup generator for the whole house.
Offered fully furnished, this is an exceptional place to enjoy your island getaway.
