Oceanfront home on Kiawah Island on the market for $20 million south of Charleston | Immovable
A beachfront home on a rare double lot on Kiawah Island is now on the market for $20 million.
It’s not a record price for the gated resort community for multi-million dollar mansions, but it’s close. The record selling price is held by the Vanderhorst Manorsold last year for $20.5 million.
It’s also not the first time the 10,500-square-foot home at 133 Flyway Drive has been listed. In 2017, the asking price was $22 million. Last year, the list price was $19 million.
Based in Charleston Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty has the most recent list. The agency’s Middleton Rutledge is the listing agent.
The 2.07-acre property features 200 feet of ocean frontage and a 400-foot private driveway beyond the island’s second gate. The home features nine bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms.
“Demand and value in the waterfront market has increased significantly over the past 24 months,” Rutledge said. “The last two sales of a single oceanfront lot on Kiawah were $7.5 million and $8.5 million.”
The grandeur of the home includes a wall of patio doors and windows overlooking the ocean to the 2 1/2 story barrel vaulted ceiling, creating one great room anchored at each end by chimneys.
The master suite encompasses the entire east wing of the second floor, offering a foyer, dedicated dressing room and living area and a spacious bedroom with French door access to a private covered plaza. Marble flooring, dual sinks, a frameless glass shower, and a separate soaking tub make up the master bathroom.
The estate’s outdoor amenities include a summer kitchen with a Lynx Sedona gas grill, an oceanfront saline pool with a travertine surround, a separate pool house, and a manicured back lawn with a walkway leading to the beach.
Ownership last changed hands in 2007 and the home is currently owned by a resident of Greenwich, Connecticut, according to Charleston County land records.
A new mixed-use development with 119 apartments is planned where a warehouse was recently demolished on the Charleston Peninsula.
The multi-family project is planned on East Bay, Washington and Charlotte streets south of the plumbing supply store Moluf’s.
A company called 518 East Bay LLC recently purchased the property at 518 East Bay and an adjacent parcel to the south for a total of $5.43 million, according to Charleston County Land Records.
Other parcels near Charlotte Street are included in the project, with the exception of an existing single-family home in Charleston which is being used as an office building at 6 Charlotte Street. Site plans also show two similar new structures proposed along Charlotte Street.
The multi-family project will start at six floors near Moluf and narrow towards Charlotte Street.
A West Ashley office building could soon see a bit of renovation.
Gramling Brothers Real Estate & Development of Charleston wants to modernize the building and the surrounding area Parkwood Business Building at 1243-1255 Savannah Highway “to improve appearance and efficiency,” according to city planners. Gramling owns the 2 acre property.
The proposal would require the removal of six large trees, according to site plans.
A new community of single family homes is planned for James Island.
The owner of the 10-acre parcel at 1802 Central Park Road wants to build homes on 38 lots that exceed the City of Charleston’s 2½-story height limit in the zoning district.
Plans call for the new residences to have garages with ground access, which will make for three-story structures. The owner is Central Park Road LLC.
The city one Zoning Appeal Board will review the waiver request on June 7.
