525 Bufflehead Drive
Kiawah Island

This stately home is situated on a .45 acre lot on Bufflehead Drive, in one of Kiawah Island's most desirable neighborhoods. Offering exceptional lagoon and fairway views, proximity to the beach and a Governor's Club Membership Opportunity, this fully renovated 3950 SF home with 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath is not to be missed.The house is beautifully landscaped. Brick steps lead to the mahogany double door entrance. Enter the foyer and step into the great room with wall-to-wall transomed windows and glass doors, drawing you to the majestic lagoon view, framed by a stunning Live Oak. The IPE decking, with marine wire rails to enhance the viewing experience, South facing to embrace the Ocean breezes and partially shaded by the majestic live oak, is the perfect place to grill, dine alfresco, sunbathe or to simply relax. The Great room with a floor to ceiling travertine framed fireplace, a built-in lit wall unit to display your many art treasures, oak hardwood floors and soaring ceilings, is open to the foyer, dining room, and kitchen.
The kitchen with Thermador stainless steel appliances and leathered granite counter tops and backsplash, is a chef's dream come true. Six burner range, steamer oven, wine-cooler, two full sized sinks, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and some unique storage ideas which must be seen. The kitchen has a large eating area and views of the lagoon. In addition, the butler's pantry/wet bar with reclaimed wood backsplash, provides an under counter refrigerator, an icemaker, and an additional sink. On this side of the house is the laundry center. It is in a room that is outfitted for use as an office, with a built-in desk and cabinetry. With the addition of a sofa-bed it can serve as an extra bedroom in a pinch.

On the right side of the house, you will find the powder room. Past that, through a double door entrance is the Master Bedroom with oak flooring, his and hers walk-in closets and an incredible Zen-like bathroom, with a large glass steam and multi-head shower, free-standing tub, heated towel rack, heated floor, indirect lighting, and clever storage areas.

On the second floor are three more bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and an area large enough to possibly put in a second laundry room. The bunk room is adorable, inviting and a fun place for the children in the family. The remaining bedrooms are large and can easily accommodate King sized beds.

There is an air-conditioned and heated area as you come down to the garage level which can serve many purposes. Currently it is used for storage and a work bench. The two-car garage is dehumidified, and the concrete floor was expanded and is currently used to accommodate a ping-pong table. There is an additional dehumidified area, past a barn style door, that can be finished or left as is and used for additional storage. An outdoor shower with hot and cold water help rinse off the beach sand.

Membership to the Governor's Club of Kiawah Island is currently available (this gives access to resort facilities and discounts at resort restaurants and shops). Ownership of a Kiawah property gives access to the Sandcastle located Ocean front, with heated Adult Pool, heated Family Pool, Baby Pool, and Fitness Center.
