Front Nine Lane: A Golf Lover’s Paradise

Property of the Week: Enjoy life on South Carolina’s coveted Kiawah Island.

By Serina Tatham

Set along Kiawah’s most eastern tip, Front Nine Lane is a new community of residences that inspire a connection to the environment. With unprecedented proximity to the world-famous Ocean Course as well as ivory shorelines, rivers, lagoons, marshlands and endless opportunities for biking and hiking, nature is right at your doorstep.

Using an innovative pattern for home placement, the residences are set in trio formations so all homes have equally spectacular vistas of the land and seascapes. By building vertically rather than horizontally, the footprint on the landscape has been minimized while at the same time cocooning the homes in local oak canopies and maximizing the views.

This particular property – 541 Front Nine Lane – is 3,883 sq ft of coastal-inspired living. With subtle hues of sand and driftwood found throughout, the living areas are inviting. The ground level comprises a large garage, abundant storage and a covered patio adjacent to the communal lawn.

The main level is based around an open floorplan and indoor/outdoor living, where there is a screened porch, generous kitchen/dining area with a center island, and a double-height living room.

Upstairs, tucked among the trees, there are two bedrooms with full bathrooms and a family/game room. The very top floor is reserved for the master suite complete with a private terrace that boasts expansive views of the grounds, The Ocean Course, and the ocean beyond.

Residents enjoy the benefits of Kiawah Island Club membership, which includes exclusive activities, five-star concierge services, world-class amenities and luxurious private venues. To entice further, homeowners also have access to Marsh House and The Beach Club with its trio of oceanfront pools and dining, as well as the 9,000-sq-ft Sports Pavilion and Sasanqua Spa.

For golf lovers, Kiawah Island is home to five public golf courses and an additional two open only to club members. There’s a golf center on-site for members to practice their skills before heading onto the green where professional golf instructors, group clinics and tournaments will be sure to entice.

And for those looking for a plethora of sustainable credentials on the side, you can rest assured that the land you’re enjoying is being taken care of. Outside of government lands, Kiawah Island is considered one of the nation’s most carefully preserved barrier islands of its size.

With a large percentage being set aside for conservation, there is an ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship, with the island serving as a refuge for flora and fauna. In all, Kiawah Island is home to 20 species of mammals, over 250 species of bird and 40 species of reptiles.
