Finished in graceful detailing by builder Russ Cooper of Kiawah, the estate is graced with handmade Savannah Grey bricks and weathered red cedar shingle and shake. The sprawling 15,322-square-foot mansion has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, five car garages, separate guest house and fitness facility by the infinity pool. The mansion has a gourmet kitchen featuring custom storage, Avant-grade appliances and almost every imaginary culinary convenience that you’d want.
In addition to the expansive interiors and exteriors, this most expensive estate on Kiawah Island has been designed with a watchful eye for outdoor living. The 5,000 square feet of outdoor area has pavilions, porches, balconies and ipe decking. There is also a private boat dock. Since Kiawah is an Island, almost 11 acres of area surrounding the mansion is picturesque marshland.
