The cedar shingle home at 10 Club Cottage Lane impresses from the first approach, with exterior details like angled slate roofs and copper gutters, and, centered between the guesthouse and main house, a spectacular screened porch with vaulted ceiling, two-story stone fireplace, ipe decking, and panoramic views of Bass Creek’s picturesque marshes.
The recently renovated interior wows as well, with new reclaimed heart pine hardwood flooring and serene white trim stretching throughout the main house, much of it freshly painted. Enter it via an expansive front porch spanning the length of the house, and you’ll immediately see the light-filled great room with its wood-beamed vaulted ceiling, pale shiplap walls, and two stories of windows.
There, a spectacular stone fireplace rises three stories from floor to ceiling. A gallery overlooks the room from above, and a glass door opens to the screened porch.
A wide doorway leads to the kitchen and dining room wing with its own screened porch, which itself leads to a sundeck overlooking the marsh, perfect for outdoor grilling.
The semi-octagonal dining room, surrounded by windows, is open to the gourmet kitchen and its expansive center island with prep sink, new Wolf® five-burner cooktop, and antique reclaimed heart pine countertop. The clean white cabinetry has been newly painted, and the leathered granite perimeter countertops, backsplash of hand-cut subway tiles, light fixtures, faucets, and hardware are new as well.
With the exception of the paneled Sub-Zero® refrigerator, the appliances are stainless steel, including the Dacor® double wall ovens, Dacor and GE® microwaves, heavy-duty Kitchen Aid® dishwasher, and Uline® wine cooler. There are twin windows over a striking farmhouse sink, further brightening the space.
Take the seagrass-lined staircase or elevator to a second floor filled by the master suite. The bedroom features a vaulted shiplap ceiling, windows overlooking the gorgeous marsh views from three angles, and French doors opening to a private second-story sundeck. The two-story master bath is lovely with stone flooring, a window-surrounded soaking tub, and his-and-hers vanities; a doorway leads to a separate walk-in shower and generously sized walk-in closet.
The suite’s private home office overlooks the living room and features a barrel-vaulted ceiling and built-in library shelving.
All guest quarters are located in the guesthouse, reached via the central screened porch. Its sunny sitting area includes custom built-in shelving and cabinetry with a prep sink and undercounter Uline® refrigerator, and an adjacent study offers a quiet, private space for contemplation. The guest master suite is serene with high ceilings, new woven Roman shades, and neutral colors; its bath features lovely granite countertops, his-and-hers sinks, white beadboard-trimmed cabinetry, and a walk-in shower.
Upstairs are two guest bedrooms with angled ceilings; they share a full bath with his-and-hers vanities.
Additional features of this home, which enjoys access to a community dock and proximity to both the Kiawah Island Club’s Beach Club and the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course, includes a two-car garage; irrigation, sound, and security systems; a new storeroom humidifier; and new whole-house air purifiers integrated in the Trane® HVAC system.
