Just a stroll away from the Kiawah River, the light-filled home at 46 Governor’s Drive offers lovely pond views and spacious main-level living.
Inside, the home—the residence of the original owner—is pristine, with high ceilings, clean white trim, and tall, transomed windows. Hardwood floors stretch throughout the foyer and expansive great room. The living room fireplace is flanked by custom white built-in cabinetry and shelving, and the eye is immediately drawn to the wall of windows and glass doors framing views of green treetops and the large pond.
The kitchen is open to the sunny breakfast nook, with a generously sized island offering extra prep space. Twin windows over the stainless-steel sink stream with natural light, and the pantry and cabinetry offer abundant storage space. The chef of the home will appreciate the double Thermador® wall ovens, five-burner gas cooktop, Sub-Zero® refrigerator and freezer, two Fisher & Paykel® drawer dishwashers, and Sharp® microwave.
Surrounded by walls of windows and glass doors, the breakfast nook leads to a wide, tree-shaded deck with abundant seating and serene pond views, ideal for entertaining or simply enjoying a morning cup of coffee in the fresh air.
Reenter the home via the living room’s glass doors and cross to the home’s study with its built-in white bookshelves and windows on three walls. Just a few steps away is the master suite, with tall transomed windows and glass doors offering private access to the back deck. The master bath has windows on three sides, pale ceramic tile, his-and-hers sinks, a deep tub beneath a trio of windows, and a separate walk-in shower.
On the opposite side of the main level is a sunlit powder room and laundry room with Fisher & Paykel washer and dryer.
The second floor, accessible via the home’s stairs or its convenient elevator—perfect for ferrying guests’ luggage and other items upstairs—is ideal for family or can simply be used for guests. The two en suite bedrooms feature sunny nooks; in the first, glass doors lead to a private balcony, and in the second, there’s a wide window seat inviting guests to relax with a book. The third bedroom is currently used as an additional sitting area and twin home offices, and features its own balcony overlooking the pond.
For the hobbyist, there’s a photography darkroom with sink, which can double as an owner’s storage space. Other features of this partially furnished home include a small additional GE® fridge, GE wine cooler, central vacuum on all floors, Pella® dual-pane hurricane-rated windows and doors, dual hot water heaters, irrigation system, and plentiful parking for vehicles indoors and out. A Kiawah Island Club Social Membership is available with the purchase of this home.
