The picturesque home at 24 Marsh Cottage Lane, nestled into a beautifully shaded marsh front homesite on a peaceful lane beyond Kiawah’s second security gate, offers quiet privacy... and yet it’s conveniently close to world-class amenities including the Kiawah Island Club’s Beach Club and hole no. 19 of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course.
Dappled sunlight filters through the leaves above the home’s multiple decks and porches, inviting family and friends to drink in tranquil views of a secluded tidal marsh and the melodies of chirping birds. The over-sized screened porch, with vaulted wooden ceiling, offers the perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine beneath the cooling breeze of fans.
Inside, the wood paneled ceiling of the spacious great room soars two stories, crisscrossed by exposed wooden beams. Family and friends will enjoy gathering around the custom crafted floor-to-ceiling masonry stone fireplace, while walls of glass French doors and large arched windows frame the lush marsh views.
Conversation with the family chef is easy across an open breakfast bar, and the gourmet kitchen, with its two windows, is light and bright with white beadboard cabinetry, pale stone countertops, white-paneled refrigerator and freezer, and stainless-steel appliances including a six-burner gas stovetop with hood, two drawer dishwashers, wall oven, and bar area with glass-fronted upper cabinets and undercounter wine cooler.
A staircase beside the entryway leads to a windowed second-floor over flow sleeping loft/office overlooking the great room. On two living levels, four airy en suite bedrooms overlook the green treetops. Two of the suites offer vaulted ceilings with exposed wooden beams. The sunlit first-floor master suite offers a private balcony with beautiful views of the marsh and maritime forest, his-and-her sinks, an expansive walk-in rain shower with additional handheld showerhead, and a large separate bathtub.
Located in the desirable Kiawah Island neighborhood of Osprey Cottages, with easy beach access just a quick bicycle ride away at the no. 40 beach boardwalk, 24 Marsh Cottage Lane offers drive-under garage parking of 845 square feet, an enclosed workshop/storage area, and the opportunity for a Kiawah Island Club Social Membership.
