16 Royal Beach Drive
Kiawah Island

Nestled within the maritime forest of the exclusive Royal Beach enclave, the unique coastal home at 16 Royal Beach Drive enjoys the sounds and scents of the Atlantic Ocean and access to a private neighborhood boardwalk onto Kiawah's pristine 10-mile beach. The home's dramatic design, with a two-story gazebo entry, offers views from every level, with porches and deck overlooking the saltwater pool, a lush canopy of treetops and an array of wildlife. The interior boasts a reverse open floor plan, providing large gathering areas, two master suites and private guest spaces, all with high ceilings and outside access to enjoy it's lush maritime setting. The first floor offers two guest suites with full baths, access to the covered porch overlooking the pool and a shared large sitting room with back porch. The window-lined staircase leads to the 2nd floor, opening onto a large octagonal screened porch and into the main living area. The gourmet kitchen, with large central island, stainless-steel appliances, double wall ovens, custom cabinetry, granite countertops and pantry, is open to the generous dining and living areas allowing guests and chef to mingle. Crown molding and oak hardwood floors move into the living room with its marble-surround fireplace with access onto another 47-foot covered porch overlooking the pool. At the opposite end of the 2nd floor is a separate wing consisting of a second master suite with a soaking air bubble tub, walk-in shower, his-and-her vanities and walk-in closet. A sitting area and full laundry room complete the wing.

The window-lined staircase continues to the full 3rd floor private master suite. The master bedroom and expansive sitting/study areas with angled ceilings and glass doors open onto the 38-foot veranda overlooking the treetops. The sun-filled master bath has a large soaking tub, walk-in shower, his and her vanities and walk-in closet. The suite is truly an escape with treetop views, ocean scents and breezes with incredible evening stargazing from the veranda. Other features include an elevator, security system, outdoor shower, irrigation system, and double garage with extra storage space.

Located on a half-acre of privacy within the highly desirable Royal Beach neighborhood, a cul-de-sac with private beach access onto an uncrowded section of Kiawah's immaculate beach, the home's mid-island location also enjoys enviable proximity to the island's amenities .... championship golf, tennis, fitness, dining, shopping and more!
