A magnificent oceanfront estate on Kiawah Island in South Carolina has come on the market for a cool $24-million. The classic shingle-style seaside residence was designed by architect Mark Finlay and completed in 2006 atop a premier 1.31-acre lot with 200-feet of ocean frontage.
Grand in size, the 15,182 square foot residence is being sold completely furnished with fine furniture pieces, amazing artwork, spectacular window treatments, hand-tufted rugs, and Matouk bedroom & linens. The architect writes, “The twenty-eight room interior was created with a reverse floor plan so that gathering areas like the kitchen, dining room, and living room sit on the second floor and have views over the island’s dense foliage to the ocean.” The residence was constructed above the flood zone with steel framing, concrete floors, and reinforced windows making it virtually hurricane-proof.
There is also a guest house, fabulous swimming pool, a Charleston brick gazebo with fireplace, and Charleston lawn. The home has been featured in Architectural Digest and The Modern Estate Magazine. The 8 bedroom, 12 bedroom residence is listed with Kiawah Island Real Estate.
