Located within Rhett’s Bluff, a private riverfront community flanked by Bass Pond and the Kiawah River, this stunning deepwater home enjoys sweeping river and marsh views from every room and from 2,761 square feet of screened porches, verandas and sun decks. The 7,427 square foot home was built in 2008 and first listed in 2015 for $7.2 million. It was recently reduced to $6 million. Designed by architect Skip Wallace and impeccably constructed by Solaris, the exterior is clad in cedar wood shingle siding, copper roofing, Charleston brick foundation and entry staircase, graceful gables and shutters, tall columns, covered porticos, and curved verandas. Award-winning landscape includes flowering plants and trees, tropical palms, and live oaks adorned with Spanish moss. 

There is a private dock with boat lift providing immediate access to Kiawah River. Inside, every room offers an aesthetically pleasing mix of exquisite design with beamed and coffered ceilings, exposed brick, shiplap, oversized fireplaces, fluted millwork, curved walls and staircases, handsome mouldings, clever built-ins, and gorgeous stone appointments. The stunning two-storey oval entry foyer offers access to the first floor’s club room, to two generously sized guest bedroom suites and a spacious home gym. A graceful curved staircase with handcrafted wrought iron railings leads to the second level’s shared living spaces and to two additional guest bedroom suites with private porches and en suite baths. Level three is devoted entirely to the luxurious master quarters.

The handsome club room showcases pecan walls, custom built-ins, rich oak plank flooring, bead board ceilings, an entertainment center, and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the sprawling back deck, private dock, and Kiawah River. Spacious and inviting, this media-centric room has three TVs and surround sound. The second level features exceptional high-end finishes. The living room is elegant, yet comfortable with 12’ coffered ceilings, rich heart pine flooring, and floor-to-ceiling windows with exceptional river views. Three impressive Charleston brick interior archways exude Lowcountry charm and connect the living room to the dining room and kitchen. An attendant library nook serves as a cozy room with a view that features a built-in daybed for peaceful reading. The spacious gourmet kitchen features soapstone perimeter counters, abundant custom and glass-front cabinetry, shiplap walls, soapstone backsplash, and views out to the live oak trees. The kitchen offers a 11′ marble center island with space for casual seating, two full SubZero® refrigerator/freezers, SubZero refrigeration drawers, two dishwashers, a conventional and convection oven, and a cooking hearth with Viking® gas range. There is also an office and pantry tucked behind arched pocket doors. The dining room enjoys panoramic river views through large picture windows and two sets of glass doors out to an expansive screened porch and commercial grade grilling station. The third floor is devoted to the extraordinary master suite that includes a private foyer, a river view office, and a generously sized sitting room with fireplace, custom built-ins, and access to a private covered porch and sundeck. Through double doors, the spacious master bedroom with wooden barreled ceiling and oversized windows enjoys the best views in the home. The master suite also features two walk-in closets, built-in cabinetry, and a secret doorway into the expansive spa-inspired master bathroom with travertine floor, travertine walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, two generously sized vanities, and a second full laundry room for ultimate convenience.
