Kiawah Island, SC, USA
161 Flyway Dr
Designed by the award-winning architects at Spivey & Woods, the classic coastal residence at 161 Flyway Drive is privately sited at the end of a long, winding drive amid native trees and greenery. With a highly desirable address and location just across the lane from a beach boardwalk leading to the Atlantic Ocean, this estate also offers gorgeous views of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course and the blue waters of Canvasback Pond.
The spacious homesite easily accommodates the traditional cedar-shake home, which rises from a raised brick foundation level to a shingle-and-copper roof, blending beautifully into Kiawah’s natural landscape. A wide Southern-style front porch invites family and friends to enter through the mahogany front door.
Inside lies an open floor plan pairing classical design details like hardwood floors, wide crown molding, wainscoting, and columns. Professionally decorated, the home has a cohesive look and feel that is representative of traditional, Southern style. The result is tailor-made and functional, with unique spaces that welcome owners and guests with both luxury and comfort.
In the living room, a striking granite fireplace beautifully framed in white trim is flanked by custom built-in cabinetry and shelves, complementing a wide wall of windows overlooking the pool and Osprey Point’s no. 18 fairway. The highly livable space flows into a sunny breakfast nook and chef-caliber kitchen with spacious island, creamy cabinets, granite countertops, and premier stainless-steel appliances including a gas cooktop. A window over the sink fills the space with light, making time in the kitchen a delight. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious dining room, where the table easily fits ten guests.
The breakfast nook leads to the home’s screened porch, wide deck, infinity-edge heated pool, and spa, enabling luxurious outdoor living and entertaining year-round.
This coastal retreat’s five en suite bedrooms also lend themselves to hosting family and friends. The second floor can be entirely dedicated to guests, with three bedrooms and a sitting area. A third-floor contains the fourth guest suite and a den with wet bar.
The main-level master suite is a private sanctuary, with exquisite views, custom built-in dresser and shelves, and a luxurious bath with marble flooring, a large soaking tub, and a spacious, frameless-glass rain shower. Across the hall from the master, an office or den is an additional private space for owners.
Additional features of this furnished home include an elevator, central vacuum system, whole-home sound system, and 1,766-square-foot garage. A Kiawah Island Club Golf Membership is available with the purchase of this property.
