Learn the seven myths about building a custom home, and the truth behind custom versus pre-designed homes

Building a Home in The Estuary

The natural beauty surrounding The Estuary is astounding. In fact, many come far and wide to see the scenery that can only be found here. Layered vistas put each type of landscape on display. From each individual homesite you can see far-reaching views of marshland, sandy shores and sea, and brilliant green fairways. 

All homes on Kiawah are built to complement the natural beauty through their architecture. Exterior homes reflect the tones and textures that are naturally found across the Island. Color palettes use oceanic and earthy colors to set the mood of each space. Areas that are ideal for resting, such bedrooms, deserve soothing colors of soft blues and greens to promote relaxation. Spaces that are meant for entertaining, think common rooms and the kitchen, go best with light and airy colors. 

When building your home in The Estuary, you will be provided with expert guidance on selecting the best colors, design features, and more for your home. The Island abides by the rules of the Architectural Review Board to ascertain that each home seamlessly meets the landscape without fading into the background or surpassing what is already there. 

If you prefer not to build a custom home, you may also wish to choose from three pre-designed plans to use. This option allows for a shorter build time and ease of planning.

The Estuary Neighborhood

The Estuary was created with you, the enthusiast of nature, beauty, luxury, and life’s greatest pleasures, in mind. Builds begin at 2,500 square feet in this neighborhood, giving homeowners the possibility of building spacious homes to accommodate visitors or a large family. 

Varying homesites have individual views you can choose. Certain sites overlook the 14th hole of the Cassique course, the iconic Kiawah River, vast tidelands that are characteristic of the area, and shimmering lagoons teeming with wildlife. Homes may frame any combinations of these views. At one end of the The Estuary, a community dock extends out across the Kiawah River where residents can enjoy direct access to the water. 

Living here is a dream come true, the combination of nature, opulence, and leisure are just a few perks of building a home in The Estuary. 

The Cassique Community

Right outside your door, you will have access to one of the best golf courses in the area. The Members-only Cassique golf course is the area’s only Scottish links-style course. World-renowned golfer and course designer, Tom Watson was the driving force behind the vision of bringing the UK’s top masterpieces to the Island. 

If you look closely, each hole can be played in multiple ways, forcing golfers to get creative and think outside of the box, if need be. Weather conditions will ultimately play the largest role in how you swing. But if you are in need of some practice before playing a round, within Cassique is a state-of-the-art Golf Learning Center with 3D swing analysis that will help you perfect your game. 

Located within the community is a kayak dock and boathouse for enjoying the adjacent waterways and the Members-only Sports Pavilion. This fitness center reaches over 9,000 square feet and provides Island residents with fitness classes, tennis courts, Olympic lap pools, and more. 

In addition to these amenities, Cassique houses one of the top restaurants on the entire Island, Voysey’s by Chef Tom Colicchio. Situated inside the Members-only Cassique Clubhouse, guests flock to this popular restaurant for a taste of fresh, local seafood coupled with culinary excellence.
