Location: Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Price: $7.95 million
This Lowcountry home is set in the beautiful landscape of Kiawah Island, which pairs manicured grounds and gardens with lush native greenery and coastal dunes.
Just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, the beach can be reached via a private boardwalk through the atmospheric Kiawah marsh. This house offers views of the Atlantic from nearly every room, with tiers of porches seamlessly integrating outdoor and indoor spaces.
Built in the mid-1990s, the home has undergone renovations throughout the years, most recently the exterior entrance, with an updated driveway, brick-paved walkway and redesigned staircase.
Designed with family use in mind, the home has a unique reversed three-story layout, with the top floor dedicated solely to the master suite. The ground floor, where guest quarters are located, opens up to the rear porch.
“The property is very unique due to the location and privacy of the homesite—a very long private drive surrounded by live oaks and a well-maintained hedge row,” said the home’s agent, Patrick Brumfield. It’s also on a “very exclusive street with many large and very private homes.”
The three-story, 5,577-square-foot home sits on 1.08 acres and has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half baths.

Amenities include an elevator, a garage and an outdoor pool. New mechanical systems were added in 2016, including new heating and air, a central vacuum system, irrigation and landscape lighting, and a new security system. The garage was updated with a dehumidified storage and workroom.
The island resort itself offers luxury and recreational amenities. The Kiawah Island Club, exclusive to Kiawah Island property owners—who gain automatic membership — gives members access to private venues, luxury spa amenities, a boating club as well as various water sport activities. Most notably, its world-class golfing amenities include two of the top 100 residential courses in the U.S—the Tom Watson-designed Cassique and the Tom Fazio-designed River Course. The Club’s private dining options include Voysey’s, with consulting chef Tom Colicchio of Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
The Sporting Club is headed by Tony Starling, a nationally ranked shooting coach, and has 800 acres for clay target, skeet, trap and five stand shooting.
