About 19 Rhetts Bluff Road

A Kiawah Island Club Social Membership opportunity accompanies 19 Rhetts Bluff, a quintessential Lowcountry home nestled between the live oaks and Spanish moss in Kiawah's premier Rhett's Bluff community. This stunning marshfront residence offers an established neighborhood, access to Kiawah Island's private amenities, and a gateway into gorgeous waterway views anytime of the day. Just a short walk away is the Rhett's Bluff private boat landing and community pavilion. Here, residents enjoy a special space to gather with friends for unbelievable sunset views or launch kayaks for morning rows alongside a pod of dolphins. The home itself offers 4,560 sq ft of private frontage to the extensive network of Kiawah River creeks. As you approach the drive, professionally designed landscape and brick pathways dappled in sunlight greet you at the front steps. A brick masonry foundation and covered front porches are indicative of the natural Lowcountry elegance around Rhetts Bluff. Inside, 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms are spread over an elegant traditional floorplan. In the entryway, a spiral staircase rises out of solid oak floors. Step into the living space where breathtaking creek views and natural light pour through elegant floor-to-ceiling picture windows. The combined formal living and dining room features 10 ft ceilings, a gas fireplace, beautifully designed custom molding, and direct access to the first covered brick patio. The view is truly exceptional. It's easy to imagine nightly dinners on the patio, the sounds of birds and crickets in the background. The southern exposure and prevailing southwesterly winds set the stage for a consistent breeze, a rarity in the south, and a tailored fit for long afternoons reading waterside. The recent remodel of this home took every feature into account. Reminiscent of the South of Broad properties in Historic Charleston, the arched doorways, masonry paths, and meticulous woodwork are a display of singular attention to detail. A copper roof and landscape lighting among the oaks decorate your views. Back inside, the left wing of the home harbors a half-bath, corner home office, and cozy den. Grand doorways with 12-inch molding and bookshelves throughout these rooms create a lived-in feeling with a hint of formality. The chef's kitchen, recently remodeled by Sifly Homes, enjoys the same water views and a breezeway to the front covered porch. Space for in-kitchen dining, a breakfast nook, or a cozy spot to read on the waterside is the best spot to enjoy the morning light. The kitchen island extends almost the length of the space, capped with a bar area. The space is equipped with a suite of Thermador appliances. The soft-close custom cabinetry, ample pantry space, and thoughtfully designed layout considered every last detail. Phantom screens decorate the doors to the covered porch, perfect for a cross-house breeze. The spacious bedrooms of this home are all located on the second floor, easily accessible by the elevator or the soft jute-covered staircase. Each bedroom enjoys an ensuite bathroom and either river views or those of lilting live oak archways at the front. In the master retreat, views of the water and wildlife are seen directly from bed. A window-lined passage leads you into the luxurious private bathroom. This space includes a large walk-in shower, heated floors, and dual-sink vanities. The beautiful woodwork and attention to detail continue throughout these spaces and into the custom walk-in closet. The first guest bedroom faces the water, while two additional guest bedrooms have direct access to the second covered porch. A shared den off the main hallway serves as a great spot for lounging, having a drink out of the beverage cooler, and strolling out onto the covered front porch for sunsets through the trees. Back to the ground floor of the home, a spacious garage bay has a 3-car capacity and plenty of storage space for water toys, beach gear, bikes, and more. An exclusive destination within Kiawah, Rhett's Bluff is a picturesque area renowned for its architecture, wildlife, and private waterway amenities. It's a typical day to watch the sunrise over Kiawah's creeks and waterways and then the sunset over the Kiawah River at the boat landing. Kiawah's extensive amenities are moments away, but here, it feels like you are in a world separate from the rest.
