85 Blue Heron Pond Road, Kiawah Island, SC 29455


Facing the Atlantic Ocean on Kiawah Island, this one-of-a-kind retreat designed by the respected architectural firm Shope Reno Wharton of Norwalk, Connecticut, was featured in Architectural Digest June 2009 where it was also lauded for its thoughtful, exquisite craftsmanship. Finished with consummate detailing by master builder Russ Cooper of Kiawah and his team of artisans, this graceful Shingle Style home is accentuated with handmade "Savannah Grey" brick, features a separate guest quarters with fitness facility, and includes a five-car garage. The 15,000-square-foot estate enjoys 5,000 square feet of outdoor living areas including an infinity pool, summer kitchen, outdoor dining room, pavilion with outdoor fireplace, sunrise and sunset porches, and balconies that are situated to showcase Kiawah's majestic natural views.  Superb Tischler und Sohn windows take advantage of every moment of sunlight and fill each room with the radiance so particular to this romantic sea island near historic Charleston.  The guest house with full kitchen includes fitness and media rooms, a bedroom with sitting area, and two luxurious full baths. The main house features a spacious, professional grade gourmet kitchen with custom-built cabinetry and storage, gourgeous marble counters and center island, and top-tier appliances sure to fulfill every culinary wish. Other amenities include an expansive butler's pantry, stocking room, wine cellar, and a mahogany paneled study and media room. The home's gracious interiors, conceived by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs of Atlanta, emulate the island's color palette and yield a sophisticated, inviting aesthetic.  The seven-bedroom, 12-bath abode features fine millwork, flooring, and paneling crafted from multiple burnished hardwoods including mahogany, walnut, and antique oak. Lush landscaped gardens designed by Oehme van Sweden of Washington, D.C., spill out to the colorful, ever-changing marshgrasses that embrace Kiawah Island's westernmost tip.  The extensive 11.7-acre grounds has a private dock out to the Kiawah River. 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. In every respect this private site on exclusive, long-revered Kiawah consummately showcases the island's most distinguished estate.
