This unmatched residence was designed and built by the award-winning team of architect G.M. Wallace, Jr., of Island Architects, and builder Steve Brenner, owner of Solaris Inc. This talented architect and builder team, whose homes have graced the beach at Kiawah Island for over 20 years, have created a residence that has the finest materials, finishes, technology, and equipment that can be found today. From an exterior of double hand-dipped red cedar shake siding, Vermont slate and copper roof, comprehensive copper gutter system, and underground drainage system, Italian stone pool deck, and handmade ironwork to an interior that includes imported French oak hardwood flooring throughout, white stone countertops and baths, and exquisite, intricately designed woodwork and cabinets, 101 Flyway is the pinnacle of quality.
Walk up the multi-tiered, handmade brick entry flanked by Charleston style courtyards and enter into the two-story foyer with its gallery overlook, grand curved staircase, and exquisite floor-to-ceiling wood paneling. The classic wide entry hall with paneled and beamed ceiling leads to the private club room with its handcrafted coffered ceiling, beaded horizontal paneling, built-in cabinetry and bookcases, one 85" and two 40" Sony® televisions, with surround sound, Savant Control System®, and an expansive wall of floor to ceiling transom windows. Glass French doors lead to the large loggia, with its oversized spiral staircase ascending to the main floor balcony, kitchen and great room. The porch overlooks a beautifully landscaped backyard oasis. Steps down from the porch are extensive stone terraces leading to a vanishing stone-faced edge, saltwater pool with spa. The pool blends into a large lawn, perfect for family games. This backyard retreat is completely protected with a lockable, metal and brick living privacy fence, which is great for pets and children. The private IPE boardwalk leading to the beach, with an outdoor shower, is accessed from the rear lawn.
Also on this level are four guest bedrooms, each with an exquisitely appointed full bath. Accessible from the loggia and pool terrace are a mudroom with French limestone floors and countertops, two washers and dryers, a beverage refrigerator, and a full pool bath.
To take full advantage of the magnificent ocean views, the living spaces are on the second floor. The light-filled great room is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows beneath a white-beamed ceiling. There is a large fireplace with gas logs. Glass doors open to the large second-story balcony overlooking the sea. The wet bar has beautiful 12-step charcoal-washed wooden cabinetry, with rare black and brown marble countertops, refrigerator drawers and bar dishwasher, which makes this a real bar for entertaining.
The sunlit dining area is sweeping in size, and is completely open to one of the largest, most spectacular kitchens on Kiawah. The spacious kitchen with its supersized center island that includes seating for at least 6 adults, is a chef’s dream. Professional-grade appliances, including a 60-inch Wolf® gas range with custom hood, two Bosch® dishwashers, two Sub-Zero® refrigerators, a Sharp® undercounter microwave, and a built-in 50” television make this kitchen the heart of the home. The floor-to-ceiling cabinetry is clean-lined and white, with display cabinetry at the top. Just beyond the kitchen is a large butler’s pantry/catering kitchen with sink, Bosch oven, Bosch dishwasher, a Scotsman® icemaker, and two full-size wine fridges. The walk-in pantry completes this amazing kitchen.
Also on this level is a well-appointed English paneled private home library with built-in shelving and media cabinetry, a 75” television, powder room, and a second staircase leading upward to the private primary suite and rooftop deck.
The third-floor primary suite is the showpiece of the home. With breathtaking views of the ocean from its sitting room with coffee bar, third-story balcony, as well as the rooftop deck above, it’s an exquisite private sanctuary. An electrically operated roof window provides easy access to the rooftop deck. The white marble bath is spa-like and serene, with double vanities, a pristine standalone soaking tub in its own windowed alcove, and an expansive, masterfully tiled rain shower with frameless glass doors. The suite also has a separate outdoor shower, large dual walk-in closets, and its own laundry.
