Guided by preservation, conservation, and appreciation for the hallowed forests and saltwater marshes of Kiawah Island, the master planned community of Kiawah River marries unspoiled nature and Charlestonian charm with luxurious amenities and exquisite estates. Located a mere 15 miles from historic Charleston, Kiawah River spans across 2,000 acres and sits directly across the waterway from opulent Kiawah Island. Proposed plans for this Beach Company development include Jack Island Village, a shaping concept that includes a riverfront restaurant, guest lodging, boating concierge service, fishing pier, community swimming pool, fitness center, and banquet hall. Future plans also include Farmer’s Homestead, an on-site farmer’s market and garden, as well as Hope Chapel, a picturesque church ideal for wedding, baptisms, or other special events. Additional amenities include jogging trails, open green spaces, and access to world-class golf at Kiawah Golf Resort. Residents of Kiawah River appreciate its tranquil setting and close proximity to fresh farms, eclectic boutiques, highly accoladed restaurants, top-ranked tennis facilities, and the cultural and culinary epicenter of downtown Charleston.
Kiawah River’s new construction, single-family homes are custom-built to suit personal tastes and familial needs. Built by an architect from the approved Kiawah Island Builder Guild, all of the homes showcase southern styles and current designs, which commonly include white wash exteriors, expansive front porches, and well-appointed interior features. Available architects include Reggie Gibson; Beau Clowney Architects; Starr Sanford; and Backer, Gillam and Kroeger. Presently, home prices range between $620,000 to $900,000 for a three bedroom cottage or villa and upward of $900,000 for a secluded or waterfront estate.
