Located on one of Kiawah’s most prestigious lanes, lined with some of the Island’s signature homes, the new shingle style home at 542 Bufflehead Drive—slated for completion by the end of the year—already dazzles with incredible views.
Family and guests will delight in the sights and sounds of the lapping blue waters of Egret Pond, stretching to either side as far as the eye can see and bordered by natural grasses swaying in the sea breeze. On the other side lies the green fairways of the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point golf course, and just a stroll away, across the pond via a golf path, is the Egret Pond Fishing Dock.
There will be no better spot to soak in the vista than from the waterside pool set into the home’s 900-square-foot rear deck. Extending the entire width of the first floor, the sundeck is accessible from the master bedroom and living room as well as the large screened porch just off the breakfast nook.
Inside, the lovely view is the star as well, with rows of windows or glass doors in every rear-facing room on the first and second levels. The fine finishes and high ceilings of the interior will enhance it, offering light, airy ease and relaxation, beginning with an open great room.
In the living room, white shiplap walls, wide-plank hardwood floors, a reclaimed wooden mantel over the fireplace, and wooden ceiling beams will form a delightfully casual coastal and rustic pairing. Open to the foyer, morning room, and kitchen, the space invites family and guests to meander out to the sundeck or into the gourmet kitchen for a glass of wine and conversation with the family chef.
White custom cabinetry, a white subway tile backsplash, pale honed Calcutta quartz or marble countertops, professional-grade stainless steel appliances, an expansive island with prep sink, and plentiful windows will combine to create a bright, airy kitchen any chef will adore. And when not dining al fresco, the large morning room will welcome family and friends with its stained shiplap ceiling and sunny windows.
Across the foyer and past a strikingly designed staircase flooded with natural light lies the master suite. It’s a spacious sanctuary complete with a private study with fireplace, large walk-in closets, and master bath with freestanding tub, his-and-hers sinks, clean-lined custom cabinetry, white marbled quartzite countertops, and pale marble bathroom and shower floor tiles set in a herringbone pattern. A large laundry room with side-by-side washer and dryer, sink, and plentiful counter space is conveniently just around the corner.
Guests will feel pampered, too, with three sunlight-filled bedroom suites upstairs, easily accessed via the staircase or elevator and each appointed with the same level of fine finishes.
Located in Kiawah’s desirable Egret Pintail community, this spacious and airy home will come with impact-rated windows and doors.
