Here’s the house I’m daydreaming over today: a sprawling shingled home on over 11 acres of Kiawah Island in South Carolina. It was featured in Architectural Digest a few years ago and is now on the market for $18 million. Take a look…
The agent says, “This property’s singular character is achieved by the graceful balance of exacting features and easy Carolina Lowcountry charm. Its setting is made up of mature live oaks, leafy palmettos, and tall pines amid the sea grasses of the Stono Inlet and Kiawah River.”
The house was built in 2005 with weathered red cedar shingle and shake, along with handmade “Savannah Grey” brick.
It was designed by architectural firm Shope Reno Wharton of Norwalk, Connecticut, and decorated by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs of Atlanta.
Love this room and the other spaces the house has that take full advantage of the great light and gorgeous views:
After I saw this kitchen, I suddenly had the urge to buy lots of green glass bottles for mine.
There are 7 bedrooms…
…and 9 baths.
A sunroom with a brick floor:
A huge covered deck with marsh views:
“Lush landscaped gardens, designed and realized by Oehme van Sweden of Washington, D.C., transition to sunwashed, ever-changing marshgrasses and a generous private boat dock at Kiawah’s westernmost tip. The extensive 11.7-acre grounds include two additional homesites.”
The listing describes Kiawah as “a romantic sea island near historic Charleston.” This photo of the marshland and dock appeared in Architectural Digest, and you can read the entire article here. (AD photos by Ken Hayden.)
