Out and About: Kiawah Art and House Tour

April 17, 2015

Last week, we had the pleasure of attending the Kiawah Art and House Tour, which involved a thrilling look inside five incredible homes on one of our favorite islands. All photos courtesy of thescoutguide.com.

The design aspect was inspiring in terms of both the architecture as well as the interior design. Above is the Vanderhorst Plantation Surfsong, a home inspired by the 19th century aesthetic and Eastlake Movements. The interior boasts beamed ceilings, twin fireplaces, a fourth-floor master suite, and a brilliant pool.

Below, the Vanderhorst Plantation Ocean Front home is a modern Tuscan-inspired home.
The five-bedroom villa and guest house sit on the dunes with breathtaking ocean views.

At the renowned Ocean Course, the below home’s panoramic views will boggle the mind and make you remember Charleston really is like paradise. Inside, the owner’s love of art, the Adirondacks, the American West, and the Far East is beautifully celebrated.

Another house featured a hidden playground through a secret door in the pantry: amazing! Can you imagine having that whimsical secret world all to yourself as a child?

Nicknamed The Preserve, the below home is nestled in the Preserve at the edge of the marsh, lending it sweeping views of the river and the Ravenel Bridge. Inside, stunning marsh views are abundant, while the design features lots of cozy nooks, bookcases, and window seats.

Inside Rhetts Bluff, below, the walls are adorned with a wonderful collection of art by local artists. The entry level remarkably incorporates the dining room, living room, and honey-hued limestone kitchen in addition to a master suite.

The event was ticketed and proceeds went to support the Gibbes Museum of Art’s Art to Go program.

Have you ever gone house-spotting on Kiawah?
