Seabrook Island

A rare opportunity to own a deep water estate on the Kiawah River and spend endless days and evenings enjoying the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. This 1.5 acre private island at the tip of Marshgate Lane on Seabrook Island, surrounded by water on three sides, and with views of the 15th hole of the Cassique golf course, will provide you and your family with an incredibly special lifestyle. The 6,483 sf estate home was sited and designed to capture views from nearly every room and was built by award winning builder Koenig Construction, with the greatest attention to detail - 250 year old heart pine floors, extensive crown moldings, custom cabinetry and soaring windows that allow beautiful natural light to fill the home. The home is being sold fully furnished. This one of a kind property is your private peninsula on the Kiawah River where nature unfolds before your eyes with every beautiful sunrise and gorgeous sunset.
Family and friends will spend days living the ultimate Low Country lifestyle boating, fishing, shrimping and crabbing from the deep water dock, kayaking over to Captain Sam's Spit to watch the dolphin strand feed or grilling out on the tip of the peninsula known to its owners as Breezy Point. The home has three outdoor decks plus a large screened porch where you can hear the roar of the ocean waves arriving on the shore. This property delivers it all, in a private setting, from sunrise to sunset.
The architecture by Freeman-Major of Greenville, with contributions by well known local architect Marshall Driver, is superb - beautifully designed to hug this peninsula and provide it's owner with a space that accommodates a crowd but lives small enough, with intimate spaces, to feel cozy in your oceanview home. The finishes are gorgeous, from the old tabby columns and fireplace exteriors to the floors and cabinetry so well detailed in the home.

From the moment you enter the home you will feel a sense of peace and tranquility. The formal yet cozy living room is a wonderful space to relax by the fireplace. From here you are lead to a formal dining room with butler's pantry and separate bar that connect into a spacious and well appointed chef's kitchen that takes in views of the marsh one side and the river on the other side. You can eat in the kitchen or head out onto the sprawling deck and soak in the stunning vistas. Just off the kitchen is a wonderful screened porch, and an expansive laundry room that leads to a private home office. A large comfortable den with extensive built-in cabinetry is the ideal spot to hang out and watch your favorite team or read a good book. The home and outdoor spaces are wired for sound and ideal for use with your "personal assistant", Alexa, Siri or Google.
The first floor Master Suite was designed as an owner's retreat. A large picture window views a gorgeous live oak and the marsh, river and ocean beyond. The master bath has his and hers vanities, large tiled walk-in shower, a soaking tub and an enormous walk in closet with built-in drawers and two entrances. The master has a private deck overlooking the property and eastern exposure that has steps down to the dock and out to the point. An elevator to all levels of the home makes it easy for bringing in groceries or supplies or easily getting from the lower to the upper floor of the home.
The home's upstairs provides a second living space for family members and guests with three bedrooms and three baths, a living room, a second laundry room, small kitchenette and a large outdoor deck that captures the spectacular views of the river, marsh, beach and ocean. There is a sizable storage room that can be converted to a 5th bedroom if so desired.
One of the property's finest features is out on the "finger tip" of the peninsula where the owners have built an entertainment area with event lawn, Oyster/Fire Pit, water and electricity, speakers and seating to capture the one of a kind setting. This is truly a remarkable setting that is seldom seen including Adirondack Chairs on the point overlooking the majestic marsh. The owners have recently upgraded the deep water dock facilities. They include electricity and water, a boat lift, and a large floating dock on the Kiawah River. You will be captivated by your life on the water where the dolphin live and play along with you each day.
The space under the home has multiple areas for storage of bikes, kayaks and beach gear, along with your golf cart that is conveying. The outdoor shower is just outside the workshop that has a freezer and fishing gear! There are two dehumidifiers that keep the area dry.

This special home, in the most special of locations, is being sold furnished with some personal exclusions. The electric Tomberlin Golf Cart will convey to the buyers. The value of this home's offering is unbeatable - the value of the land, combined with the quality of the home. Today's cost to buy the property and build new would be considerably higher and makes this a must to consider.

Seabrook Island buyers pay a contribution to the POA capital reserve of 1/2 of 1% of the purchase price. The purchase also requires membership to the Seabrook Island Club.
