103 Marsh Elder Court, Kiawah Island, SC

Offered with a Kiawah Island Club Golf membership opportunity, affectionately known as ''The Painted Bunting House,'' this marsh facing home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Vanderhorst Plantation. Built by Koenig Construction Company and designed by Wayne Windham, this beautifully maintained home showcases light and bright coastal interiors by Karen Menge, ASID of Pulliam Morris Interiors. Inside, nearly every room features panoramic views of the marsh savanna and Kiawah River. The outdoor living spaces and northwest facing rear decks provide an ideal backdrop for memorable conversations over morning coffee, or evening cocktails as the sun sets over nearby Marsh Island Park. Leading up to the home, a Charleston brick staircase hallmarkby traditional Charleston wrought iron railing invites friends and family up to the custom frosted mahogany double doors and into the home's Travertine marble appointed foyer. A sweeping staircase with handcrafted wrought iron balustrades leads to the second story. An arched entryway gracefully leads to the gathering room or TV room. The spacious and light filled room extends out to the rear deck and screened porch and reveals expansive marsh and river views. Three first floor bedrooms provide retreats for family and guests, offering them every comfort from private bathrooms to access to the screened porch or large, first floor covered deck. Throughout the first floor classic travertine marble, custom designer wool carpets, double crown moldings, oversized two-panel solid core doors, large light-filled glass windows, and French doors prove that not a single detail was overlooked. The open floor plan extends up to the second floor with the living room, kitchen, dining room, family room, and powder room, which all flow together. These rooms are highlighted by 10 foot ceilings, Brazilian cherry floors, 6 foot tall windows, ceiling fans, crown molding, custom cabinetry, arched doorways, and incredible marsh and river views from all rooms. The dining room, right off the kitchen, seats ten comfortably and offers access to the covered upper porch. At the heart of the home, the gourmet kitchen comes readily equipped to fulfill every culinary wish. Professionally designed for simultaneous cooking and entertaining, the kitchen boasts custom Wood Mode glass-front cabinetry, granite counters, Thermador® convention double ovens, double stainless steel sinks, GE Monogram® refrigerator and two sets of Sub-Zero® refrigerator and freezer drawers. The 13 foot granite-topped breakfast bar serves as a buffet for parties and dinners, or as a relaxing spot to watch the rare Painting Buntings, the boats on the Kiawah River, or the ever-changing marsh. Off the kitchen, the bright and airy family room with custom built-in cabinetry and bookshelves provides a more casual place for family and friends to gather. Tall picture windows showcase marsh views, and French glass doors lead guests to the upper level deck and panoramic marsh/river views. Sequestered from the ebb and flow of Island living, the spacious corner master suite serves as a welcome retreat. Double doors open to a spacious bedroom decorated in a soothing coastal palette while French doors provide private access to the upper deck. A large walk-in closet, customized by California Closets, has a built-in dresser, shelving, and plenty of hanging space. The granite-appointed bathroom features his/hers vanities, a Kohler® two-outlet showering system with dial-in temperate, and an ornate Kohler® claw foot tub. The third floor features a guest room with vaulted ceilings, Brazilian cherry flooring, and custom built-in mahogany cabinetry as well as a private bathroom. This room offers stunning views of the marsh from high above the trees. The separate office provides a quiet in-home work space with a large wall-to-wall shelving system and dual workstations. Additional features of this home include: a three-stop elevator; garage staircase.
