The Nantucket style retreat at 171 Flyway Drive lies just steps from a secluded stretch of beach and features views of the Atlantic from a private curved balcony off the homes second master suite.
Designed by the award-winning architect Wayne Windham and exceptionally well constructed by leading luxury home builder Solaris, this open and airy home also offers a heated saltwater infinity pool, expansive outdoor living spaces, and a location conveniently close to the Kiawah Island Clubs popular Beach Club and award-winning River Course.
Beautifully designed and illuminated landscaping welcomes guests to ascend the Charleston-brick front staircase and enter via the windowed mahogany door. A sunlit foyer with a barrel-vaulted ceiling of white shiplap and lovely white trim beckons family and friends ahead to the great room.
There, floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors showcase views of the oceanside treetops and open to the rear sundeck and pool. The living room, with a coffered ceiling and gas fireplace with a stone surround flanked by custom built-in bench seating, invites leisurely conversations and opens to a central dining area. The striking wooden dining table, with edges of unfinished wood, easily seats ten.
The spacious kitchen is a chefs dream with clean white cabinetry, a generously sized center island with a breakfast bar comfortably seating four and an undercounter microwave, a custom-hooded gas range with duel ovens, a tall wine cooler, and walk-in pantry. The countertops are granite, and a row of transomed windows over the sink look out onto the homes screened porch with its hooded grill station.
To one side of the kitchen, a glass door opens to the screened porch; to the other is the formal dining room, lovely with thick crown molding and wainscoting. It opens to a billiards room ideal for entertaining.
The homes first master suite is on the main level. It delights with high ceilings, large windows, generous white trim and wainscoting, and an exquisitely tiled master bath. There, his-and-hers sinks are set into a wide marble-topped vanity, a soaking tub lies beneath a window with verdant treetop views, and an expansive rainshower makes mornings a delight.
On the second floor, a central hall as stunningly trimmed as the rest leads to a sitting room opening to a second-story balcony with its ocean views, also accessed via a glass door in the homes third master suite. There, a vaulted ceiling and wall of windows showcase the seaside views, and the master bath, in hues of sand and airy sky, offers his-and-hers sinks, a soaking tub beneath sunny windows, and a large walk-in rainshower.
The homes second master suite lies to the opposite side and enjoys its own private balcony with ocean views, a vaulted ceiling, coastal-hued walls, white wainscoting, and a media niche. Its master bath is generously sized, with a spacious walk-in rainshower, a large walk-in closet, and his-and-hers sinks separated by a tall central dressing vanity.
Also on the second floor are three guest suites, each very comfortably sleeping two.
Additional features of this fully furnished coastal estate include dark-stained hardwood floors throughout, stone flooring in the baths, impact-rated windows and doors, and an irrigation system.
