PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
Facing the Atlantic on Kiawah Island, this one-of-a-kind retreat would be rare for any age. Envisioned by the respected architectural firm Shope Reno Wharton of Norwalk, Connecticut, this incredible estate was featured in Architectural Digest June 2009 where it was lauded as an oeuvre in custom building for its thoughtful, exquisite craftsmanship. It was also recently featured in the Wall Street Journal.

Finished with consummate detailing by master builder Russ Cooper of Kiawah and his team of craftsmen, this graceful structure is covered with weathered red cedar shingle and shake along with handmade Savannah Grey brick. It includes a five-car garage and separate guest quarters with fitness facility by the pool.

The 15,000-square-foot main home structure has an additional 5,000 square feet of outdoor living area in the form of ipe decking, pavilions, porches, balconies, and an infinity pool. Superb Tischler and Sohn windows from Germany, fenestrated to take advantage of every moment of sunlight, fill each room with the radiance so particular to this romantic sea island near historic Charleston. Also on the property is a guest house with a full kitchen, fitness and media rooms, a bedroom with sitting area, and two full baths.

Ranging from the quotidian to the extravagant, other amenities include a cutting-edge media wall, butler s pantry, stocking room, wine cellar, office, and a mahogany paneled study. The gourmet kitchen features professional-grade appliances, custom storage, and every imaginable culinary convenience.

The home s gracious interiors were conceived by the sure touch of Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs of Atlanta who emulated the island s color palette to yield a sophisticated, inviting aesthetic. The seven-bedroom, 12-bath abode resonates with Lanham s signature style and features fine woodwork flooring and paneling in multiple burnished hardwoods like mahogany, walnut, and old oak.

Lush landscaped gardens, designed and realized by Oehme van Sweden of Washington, D.C., transition to sunwashed, ever-changing marshgrasses and a generous private boat dock at Kiawah s westernmost tip. The extensive 11.7-acre grounds include two additional homesites.

This property s singular character is achieved by the graceful balance of exacting features and easy Carolina Lowcountry charm. Its setting is made up of mature live oaks, leafy palmettos, and tall pines amid the sea grasses of the Stono Inlet and Kiawah River.

In every respect this private site on exclusive, long-revered Kiawah consummately showcases the island s most distinguished home.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
Inspired by the coastal villas set along the C˘te d Azur, the magnificent home and guest residence at 99 Surfsong Road introduces a classic Provenšal design to Kiawah s stunning 10-mile shoreline. Acclaimed architect Christopher Rose honored the perfect proportioning of European style across 5,435 square feet of elegant interiors. Extensive travel abroad resulted in the acquisition of treasures found throughout the home, which boasts thirteen tons of Italian marble columns, elaborate mantels, ancient tiles, and bold ironwork. Exterior living spaces mirror the distinctive interior aesthetic: a pool deck of antique limestone from Provenše, the courtyard s majestic stone lions from Le Bourget, and a beachside loggia framed by solid Italian marble columns. A celebration of details both epic and intimate, this extraordinary home conjures the architectural master works of Europe s finest Renaissance-era estates.The home s fašade mirrors the nuanced aesthetic of bastides, the world-renowned country estates found in southern France. From the sublime employment of antique Italian terra-cotta roof tiles and copper gutters to the arched limestone portico, Old World details abound. A century-old patina imbues the stucco with subtly changing color shifts throughout the day. The handsome front door was procured in a remote corner of Provenše. áShowcasing unforgettable views of the Atlantic, the swimming pool and attendant cabana promise effortless social entertaining. The cabana s bar, television, refrigerator, and ample cabinetry ensure poolside pleasures are a daily affair.Landscape architect Bill Meneri has fashioned a courtyard garden with Renaissance flair. Crushed limestone paths and hedges of fragrant rosemary attend garden strolls while an interior courtyard offers seating alongside a reflecting pool and limestone fountain built from antique stones procured in Provenše.A private boardwalk leads directly to the beach, traversing verdant, sculpted hedges and sandy dunes. A stone trough with spigot (discovered in the town square of a small village in France) serves as an inspired foot wash at the end of a surfside day.Extensive and expansive renovations in 2007 raised the interior aesthetic from stunning to spectacular. A showcase of treasures found in marathon trips through Provenše, the C˘te d Azur, and Tuscany, the home flaunts one-of-a-kind finds at every turn. A massive limestone fireplace and mantel native of 9th-century Normandy, antique limestone floors with lapis inserts, and Venetian plaster adorn the main level. Italian parquet flooring by Francesco Molon-Giemme and local touches assert themselves in the South Carolina heart-pine beam ceilings of the elegant living room.Just inside the front door, the artful aesthetic of the main home announces itself. A two-story foyer greets guests with a soaring staircase and antique limestone floors and leads into the great room.Beyond the foyer lies the great room with banks of French doors and expansive windows revealing the piazza, pool, cabana, and sun-splashed Atlantic. Bordered by elegant arched doorways, the voluminous gathering space is accessorized by an intricately carved limestone mantel, a riveting focal point of the room.Additionally, a media room provides a comfortable gathering space for movie viewing or spirited family game nights.Anchored by a gracious center island with a vegetable sink and wine cooler, the bright, expansive kitchen partners top-of-the-line appliances and ample storage with remarkable details in design. Gently distressed cabinetry and marble countertops establish the kitchen s style, where a deep farm sink and a backsplash of fired porcelain tiles warm the room with a rustic appeal. And culinary pursuits, epic or intimate, benefit from the abundant cabinetry and storage of the walk-in pantry.An attendant dining area, warmed with natural light and a fireplace of its own, offers French door access to the pool and piazza for magnificent entertaining opportunities indoors and out.Accessible both by elevator or by the gracefully curved foyer staircase, the upstairs hallway is awash with natural lighting. A quartet of different woods imbue the Italian parquet flooring with a refined, distinctive style.

An attendant sitting room offers direct access to the sun-lit terrace. In the master bath, artful tiling, a free-standing tub, and a gracious, glassed-in shower ensure effortless indulgence in preparing for the beach day ahead.Connected to the main home by a relaxing fountain and elevated reflection pool, the guesthouse promises enviable repose for extended family and valued visitors. Three bedrooms and two baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and laundry closet offer home-away-from-home conveniences. In the living room, terra cotta floors (salvaged from a Riviera chateau) and a fireplace framed by limestone trumeau from the Midi introduce guests to a sampling of the international treasures accessorizing the address.During construction of 99 Surfsong Road, an unflappable passion for classic European design led architect Christopher Rose and the home s original owners to the bucolic landscapes of Provence. Over the course of two marathon trips through France in 2002, Rose and his Europhile clients procured the architectural masterworks currently displayed throughout the home. Joined by a countess with an impressive history as a docent at Versailles, the trio launched exhaustive searches for one-of-a-kind treasures and materials dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Today, the home s magnificent interiors and exteriors showcase nearly 13 tons of elaborate mantle pieces, ancient tiles, Italian marble, and bold ironwork discovered during their travels.Treasures include: The columns of solid Italian marble framing the beachside loggia The majestic stone lions from Le Bourget flanking the courtyard entry gate The living room s massive limestone fireplace and mantel, native of 9th-century Normandy The limestone trumeau from Midi bordering the guest house fireplace The pool deck of antique limestone discovered in Provenše The stone trough boardwalk foot wash uncovered in the town square of a small Provenše village Francesco Molon-Giemme s magnificent Italian parquet flooring, composed of four different woods A limestone fountain, composed of antique stones shipped from Provenše and reassembled on-site Italian antique terracotta roof tilesA coveted Plantation Woods South address and a 10-mile stretch of sandy white beach only begin to hint at the rich rewards of 99 Surfsong Road.

With its magnificent beachfront placement and one-of-a-kind European styling, the home introduces a brand new song to the shoreline: a stunning and singular serenade to the South of France.

122 Flyway Drive Kiawah Island, SC 29455
4 Beds 6,712 Sq. Ft
5 Full Baths

MLS# a09d000000AoS7oAAF
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
A labor of love is an understatement when referring to 122 Flyway Drive, a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired residence that sits privately back from the beach, blending subtly in to its natural surroundings. As the father of organic architecture, Wright not only used the architectural philosophy in his own designs but he inspired others with it for years to come. The philosophy promotes harmony between the natural world and the man-made structures created in it, and Wright believed that a building and its site should go hand-in-hand, becoming inseparable. At 122 Flyway Drive, this is seen in how the home relates subtly but realistically to the Island s natural dunes, thick brush, and beach.

To maintain a relationship with the land, Wright s designs were most successful as horizontal structures, but Island regulations, the size of the lot, and the striking ocean views all allocated for a more vertical design. To compensate, architect Grady Woods designed tiers of flat rooflines, overhangs, and staggered wall gardens that bring the home closer to nature and the ground.

In the fashion of many beachfront homes, the floorplan is a reversal with the first level consisting of three guest bedrooms, a media/family room and adjoining sunroom, a fitness area, and multiple accesses to the saltwater dipping pool, spa, and deck. Upon entering the home, the attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship quickly come to light in the wooden wall niches, wood ceiling trim, and striking art glass in the foyer.

Upstairs, you re greeted with a beautiful open gallery space at the top of the stairs. There are only three doors on the second floor of the home, reinforcing Wright s open floor plan design, and essentially creating one large space that is instead divided by entryways and the exquisite central brick chimney that runs through the length of the home.

Everything leads up to this moment as you make your way towards the Great Room, where you are greeted with 30 foot ceilings with striking white oak trim, geometric windows with never-ending views to the Atlantic, and cove lighting that creates a soft glow and hum of ambiance. Embraced in walls of windows, the room reinforces the home s location on the beach once again connecting it to its natural surroundings and providing not only visual access to the outdoors, but also physical access to the numerous decks, screened porch, and balconies. The windows are also custom Marvin prairie windows with tempered safety glass. In the entire home, the adjacent dining room is the most intricate in its detail and design, but the treatment is still done simply and with clean lines.

The kitchen almost feels like it s from a bygone era if not for the preeminent appliances that give it a modern edge. A Viking range, two Viking ovens and a warming drawer, a Sub-Zero refrigerator over two refrigerator drawers, two ice makers, and a wine cabinet remind you that it s good to be in charge in this kitchen. The countertops, including the large central island, are black granite and the cabinets with oil-rubbed bronze knobs hail from custom cabinet and furniture designer Dale Hostetler. Intricate wood details and craftsmanship, Ó la the Arts & Crafts movement, are again seen in the details and carvings of the cabinets. A separate panty provides additional storage and space.

Entering the third floor master suite, there s a sitting room with an art glass window that opens to overlook the great room below and a coffee bar that adds a convenient element. In the bedroom, the great brick chimney has made another appearance and the floor-to-ceiling windows are placed in a rhythmic way, conveniently bringing in the ocean views to be enjoyed from the custom-built king bed. Custom accents can be seen discretely in the metal designs of the master bath dual vanity and hints of Cherokee red are found in the granite floors and shower.

The one-of-a-kind furnishings found throughout the home are available as an additional purchase as part of a separate package. Built specially to further enhance the interior spaces, these pieces are custom Frank Lloyd Wright reproductions by Swartzendruber Hardwood Creations in Goshen, Indiana. For example, the exquisite white oak dining room table and tall-back dining chairs are Wright reproductions. The chairs are intentionally designed to emphasize the structure of the home and create an intimate space.

When you walk into 122 Flyway Drive, after you ve made your way through the compellingly beautiful arched walkway and captivating entrance, there s no denying the amount of thought, time, and passion that went into the creation of this home.

The result is an oceanfront masterpiece designed to acknowledge the exquisite ocean views around it, while also staying faithful to the architectural concepts it was based on.

This is a residence that is appreciated as much for its breathtaking beauty and details, as it is the complexities behind it, and it is one that lived up to one of Frank Lloyd Wright s most important themes above all, strive for integrity.
