Description of 23 Cormorant Island Lane, Kiawah Island, SC 29455

The natural beauty of the Kiawah outdoors is reflected in the stunning custom woodwork found throughout this deep-water estate at 23 Cormorant Island Drive. The level of artistry in this home must be seen to truly be appreciated. Natural materials like wood and stone are complemented by glass and metal. Set against the marshes of Bass Creek, the simplicity of the exterior blends into the natural surroundings without distracting from its beauty. Yet it belies the incredible level of detail inside. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths while the guest house provides an additional 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The backyard has a deck, pool and outdoor fireplace with panoramic marsh and river views. Kiawah Club membership is transferrable. Impressive curved solid oak doors lead to a wood-paneled, stone-floored foyer that introduces you to the artistry of what is ahead. From the entry, you can see through the great room all the way to the marsh views that surround the home and even to the Ravenel Bridge in the distance.The main living space is dominated by oak-paneled walls, wide plank oak floors and a 25' high vaulted ceiling with exposed truss beams. A dramatic wall of arched windows surrounded by stone encapsulates the mash views. This great room is large enough to accommodate a formal dining area plus multiple living zones. The curved windows and a dramatic crystal orb-encircled chandelier contrast nicely with the angular ceiling beams and linear wall panels.Open to the great room is a farmhouse-inspired kitchen.
