23 Cormorant Island Ln
Tucked into a breathtaking creekside setting on Kiawah's Eastern end, this stunning residence is a true Island retreat. A tree canopy of loblolly pines and majestic oaks provides the utmost in privacy and frames this home's unimpeded views across the marsh to the serpentine flow of Bass Creek. Ideally sited to capture ocean breezes, sunsets, and an ever-changing vista of sun, sea, and sky from nearly every room, this home is bursting with character, comfort, charm, and elegance.
A rustic, yet chic modern farmhouse style, this custom home blends old and new in a unique way. An aesthetically pleasing mix of rooflines, grey-washed wood planks, and standing seam metal roof is a fresh take on Island style. A cedar-shingled turret adds visual interest and is cleverly used to house an interior gallery.
Indoors, a variety of natural textures and materials, such as wood and stone, provide timeless style. A pair of massive antique wood doors outfitted with wrought iron hardware offer entrance into the foyer. Beyond the entry, a showstopper two-story, stone-clad wall of windows draws your eye toward the stunning creek views beyond. With an abundance of natural light throughout the day, the living room features a soaring, exposed truss ceiling, honed wide-plank floors, wainscoting, and direct access to the kitchen and poolside patio.
Just beyond the grand living room lies a true chef's kitchen. Layered textures, such as a wood-topped breakfast bar, vertical shiplap wall, and stone accent walls, give the space a country sensibility while contemporary elements such as black custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and an upscale suite of stainless appliances balance the look. The center island has seating for four plus a prep sink, range, and pot filler for convenience. A butler's pantry offers additional storage, refrigerator, and dishwasher as well as access to the laundry room. Adjacent to the kitchen, a cozy family room, complete with fireplace, is a great place to escape for a quiet moment and enjoy scenic vistas of the marsh and creek from every vantage.
The master suite is conveniently located on the lower level. This comfortable retreat enjoys direct access to the outdoor patio and creek views, his and hers closets, a gallery, and a luxurious master bath outfitted with reclaimed wood vanities, an antique soaking tub, and a gorgeous zero-entry stone clad shower. Upstairs, plaster walls and exposed beams give the two ensuite guest rooms old-world appeal.
Like something straight from a storybook, a charming two-bedroom guest cottage sits along the creekside feeling miles away from everything. The living room with exposed brick hearth opens onto a covered porch via a pair of glass doors. An efficiency kitchen overlooking the creek leads to two bedrooms and a full bath. The cottage includes a full-sized laundry room.
Outdoor living reigns supreme in such a stunning setting, and this home does not disappoint with multiple opportunities for viewing Kiawah's wildlife, the sunset du jour, or relaxing beside the spa. The spa-side patio includes a stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen for enjoying dinner al fresco. Steps from the patio, a shared deep-water dock (13 feet at low tide) offers convenient and direct access to the Kiawah River and Atlantic Ocean.
Located behind the second security gate, this home enjoys the privacy of the small Summer Islands enclave, but also convenient proximity to Members-only amenities, the beach, championship golf, dining, and more. A Kiawah Island Club membership is available with the purchase of this property, which is offered fully furnished.
