|Kiawah Island, SC – June 7, 2017: This classically designed home is located in The Settlement, one of Kiawah Island’s most prestigious neighborhoods. Designed by one of the premier architects of the area, Christopher Rose, and built by arguably one of the highest quality builders on Kiawah, Koenig Construction, every inch of this home was well thought out and impeccably constructed.
Upon entering 50 Kiawah Island Club Drive, you are greeted by natural light coming from the southern exposures, sweeping lagoon views, and the exquisitely manicured River Course. The tall ceilings with bold moldings enhance the family room, the warm cherry floors flow seamlessly through the home, and extensive custom built-ins complement the dining room, office, and home theater. The family room has an antique mantle from a mid-19th century Philadelphia house. This room is flanked by a generous dining room, which is highlighted by elegantly designed cabinetry and is completely open to the stunning kitchen. Perfect for entertaining friends and family, this gourmet kitchen was designed to impress. Just off the dining area is a large screened in porch with soaring ceilings, a summer kitchen, and outstanding lagoon views. Additionally, the large open back deck is in a private setting, but is highlighted by the same views which welcomed you to the house.
The generous master suite is located on the first floor and offers two large walk-in closets, dual vanities, a large walk-in shower, and a soaking tub. No exclusive home would be complete without a prized office, and 50 Kiawah Club Drive has one of the best on Kiawah, boasting rich wood cabinets and stunning views. Not to be outdone, one of the crown jewels is the theater room and its 110-inch screen. Also, hidden behind sliding wood doors are built-in beds, making this a fun room for the kids. Upstairs are three other bedrooms as well as a game center with a classically designed pool table, which comes with the house. The house was built with only the finest materials, including IPE decks and a cedar shake roof, and features a complete suite of high-end technology, including Anthem amplifier, receiver, and 8 speakers in the theater room and a five-room Sonos audio system with ceiling speakers.
