The South’s Most Lavish Beach House is On the Market
If you’re the type that doesn’t mind being charged a split-plate fee at a restaurant, or being asked to pay $.25 for a glass of water, you might be interested in this $12.5 million stunner just outside Charleston on Kiawah Island. For those of us for whose bank accounts don’t allow for such, we’ll stick with a more humble abode though we’ll take a weekend invite if you want to throw one our way!
Take a step inside this 7,482-square-foot-stunner that was built in 2009 for coastal charm aplenty. While it’s listed for sale, we also got the scoop that you can rent it by the week, if a $30K price tag doesn’t make you weak in the knees.
Come on In
Enter the cedar shake house via a magnificent staircase. It comes complete with 8 bedrooms, 9 baths, and amenities galore.
Make a Formal Entrance
The grand staircase isn’t too stuffy when paired with beachy-hued walls and a seagrass rug to warm things up.
Post-Beach Cocktails Served Here Daily
Who’s in? This large living room is designed for two separate functions: both dining and unwinding. There’s plenty of seating for your weekend guests.
A Not-So-Basic Kitchen
We wouldn’t describe this as no-frills. When your home away from home comes with professional grade appliances, you know you’re living in the lap of luxury.
We didn’t know it was possible to love wood paneling this much. Beautiful French doors provide ocean views and keep the space from feeling closed in.
There are Lots of Places to Rest Your Head
This beach house isn’t short on anything—beds included. This room sleeps three, while another nearby children’s room still feels roomy even when furnished with two sets of bunk beds.
Working Remotely Never Looked So Good
If you have to check emails from vacation, you might as well do it here.
This bathroom is more like a 5-star spa. The unique shape, lofty windows, and beautiful finishes have us ready to move in.
We Assume That’s a Guest House to the Right
Granted, it’s larger than most homes. The three-story building has an outdoor kitchen below and stunning views from all floors.
Tranquility on the Atlantic
Just beyond the serene pool is a long boardwalk leading to the water giving plenty of privacy to sunbathers on the deck.
A Porch Built for Unwinding
Take in a summer storm or cool off after a day at the beach in this scenic spot.
