The Property

PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $5.9 MILLION. NOW SELLING AT OR ABOVE ONLY $1.75 MILLION!  Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on a pristine seaside lot, this elegant Property combines European architecture with a Lowcountry lifestyle. Designed by a renowned local architect whose work graces many parts of the island, the main residence boasts a total of 4 bedrooms, 5 full and 1 half baths in approximately 6,000 sf with a classical design featuring tiered decks, loggias and graceful arching windows. Interior features include details from barrel vaulted ceilings to custom millwork, and the Property’s entrance columns, mantels and cabinetry were crafted by a master woodworker from Poland.

Located behind Kiawah’s second privacy gate in Osprey Beach (part of the exclusive Vandehorst Plantation community), the tri-level residence provides plenty of space for entertaining family and friends whose presence can be guaranteed during vacations and holidays due to the island’s incredible appeal. A spacious two-story living room with gas fireplace, wet bar and Palladian windows overlooking the pool and ocean is the perfect place to gather, and the French doors leading to the veranda allow the room to be opened to catch a sea breeze on warm days. A gourmet kitchen with custom cherry cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances adjoins a cozy breakfast room with a custom curved banquette for casual family dining. A formal dining room and wood-paneled library complete the entertaining spaces.

Ground floor guest rooms are spacious, while the third level is devoted completely to the master suite. It includes a sitting room with ocean views, large closet and dressing room with custom cabinetry, a private foyer with elevator access and separate his and hers bathrooms, each generously appointed. A separate and independent pool house doubles as guest quarters, with a Murphy bed, full kitchen and laundry facilities in addition to a full bath. Beyond the pool, the Property features a private walkway leading directly to the beach; approximately 100 ft from the sand, an observation deck with benches invites contemplation and appreciation of the exquisite surrounds unique to Kiawah.

The Community

VANDERHORST PLANTATION, SC. Named for one of the founding families of Kiawah Island, Vanderhorst Plantation is an extremely desirable residential community and golf resort on the northeast side of Kiawah. Home to two of the island’s most exclusive golf courses (Osprey Point and the world-famous Ocean Course), the enclave features private, elegant estates surrounded by Kiawah’s serene beauty. From 1772 to 1951, the Vanderhorst family lived and farmed the island, and built a large home in 1801 that still stands; indeed, it is on the National Register of Historic Places and was recently restored to its original splendor.

The easternmost of Kiawah’s three distinct communities, Vanderhorst Plantion affords homeowners incredible ocean and lagoon views and sublime outdoor living spaces, all situated behind the island’s second set of privacy gates. Residents on the ocean side enjoy direct beach access, some overlooking the Ocean Course itself, and the area is also in close proximity to Kiawah Island Club’s Beach Club & Marsh House with their suites of amenities reserved exclusively for property owners.

The Location

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC. In 1675, the local Cusabo tribe traded the land they called “Kyeawah” to the Lords Proprietors of Carolina in exchange for “a valuable parcel of cloth, hachetts, beads and other goods and manufactures;” today’s Kiawah Island is valued at substantially more! A gated, private enclave primarily composed of luxury homes, a world-class resort, and miles of pristine beaches and trails, Kiawah Island is only 45 minutes from Charleston by car. First developed as a summer home neighborhood in the 1950s, the island (which is only 13.4 square miles) is now home to over 1,600 residents who enjoy the incredible ocean views, outdoor recreation, and world-class golf.

Widely recognized as one of the premiere golf destinations on the East Coast, Kiawah has seven courses with scenery ranging from the wooded interior of the island to the sand dunes and rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Kiawah Island Club’s two private courses, Cassique and the Tom Fazio-designed River Course, are available through membership reserved exclusively for homeowners. Kiawah Resort has an additional five courses that have been played by the best in the sport: Cougar Point, Oak Point, Osprey Point, Turtle Point and the Ocean Course. Designed by famous names from Tom Fazio to Jack Nicklaus to the legendary Pete Dye, these courses take advantage of the surrounding landscape—and the stiff ocean breezes—to keep players on their toes. The combination of relaxed island living, luxurious homes and access to incredible amenities has made Kiawah a top contender on many best-of lists, including Conde Nast Traveler’s “Top U.S. Islands” in 2014 and Coastal Living’s 2012 “Happiest Places to Live on the Coast.”
