Think waterfront living is out of reach? Think again. With our stunning Kiawah River community, residents bask in the beauty that surrounds them daily—both inside their homes and just beyond their front door. Set in Johns Island, this peaceful community has the best of both worlds: far enough to feel like a getaway, yet close enough to enjoy the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston on a whim. Below, four reasons Kiawah River homebuyers say they’re here to stay!
Whether you’re an avid outdoorsman or simply looking to break out of the house every now and then, we’ve all seen the immense benefits of owning a home with a close proximity to natural walking trails, green spaces or miles of beach. In fact, the landscape that surrounds the Kiawah River community includes saltwater flats ideal for fishing and tidal creeks, where view dolphins, sea turtles, and crabs abound. Looking for fitness fun in the water? Kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing are favorites along the Kiawah River waterways.
Snugly situated just inside the southern tip of Johns Island—the largest island in all of South Carolina—residents get to enjoy coastal-living of more than 2,000 acres. Contrary to the bustling beach towns of Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, and Folly Beach, however, this community feels more like a coastal sanctuary—calm and relaxing at all times of day.
As a master-planned community, Kiawah River has it all. A working farm, boat ramps, waterfront village with retail opportunities and restaurants alike, a chapel and even an inn. Oh, did we mention a spa? Plus, set to open in 2021, Kiawah River is proud to welcome residents to our state-of-the-art swimming club. With a pulse on our community at all times, we aim to check every item off your amenities wishlist—and then some.
Our residents aren’t the only ones who love all things nature. With a growing spotlight on climate change, our team has been hard at work to bring sustainable development throughout the Carolinas since 1989. While quality materials and craftsmanship are at the forefront of everything we do, we are equally focused on designing homes that are energy-efficient and practical. To date we’ve received six Best of American Living awards, as well as the National Association of Home Builders Research Center’s Green Partner award.
That said, we would be remiss to not mention the beauty that awaits within the three customizable floor plans offered at Kiawah River. Amongst the highlights, the gorgeous hardwood floors, open floor plans that lead to entertainment and dining spaces begging for guests, and kitchens any home chef would love are always at the top of list. Happy homeowners, safer environments—you could say we’re pretty proud of this breathtaking waterfront community.
