Tree House-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Hobenaus

Description: The owners of this home travel extensively and appreciate the great outdoors. Global travels shaped their desire for a home that embraces nature. The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard; decks and stairs to pool and terrace visually connect inside and out. Most walls from the street are solid, providing privacy, yet they open to rooms of glass, timber and soaring ceilings with views of Bass and Cinder Creeks and Folly Island.

What is the sf of this house? How many bedrooms and bathrooms? Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This is the view from the more public street side, which is quite closed in contrast to all the glass and other perforations on the marsh side. Once you enter through the door, the entire house opens up into the glass-filled great room. Likewise, the tabby paver path leads out to the pool area that opens to the marsh.The home is elevated because of storm surges, and this facade is a nod to the gabled roofline and overhang, commonly seen in Lowcountry architecture.
