An impressive roster of designers played a part in the realization of 38 Ocean Course Drive. James Choate of Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein Architects came up with the architectural plan, master builder Russ Cooper Associates executed his ideas and Nancy Braithwaite took on the seaside retreat’s interiors. Acclaimed landscape designer Sheila Wertimer complemented this with manicured hedges and a covering of trees (including 125-year-old oaks) providing privacy without obstructing the ocean views. A lead-coated copper roof tops 49-ft-tall cedar- and concrete-gabled pavilions; rough-hewn stone-slab steps lead to an 11-ft glass-and-steel front door; and the wide entrance hall comes with Black Mountain stone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a saltwater pool. In the two-story property’s five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, and great room with white-beamed vaulted ceiling, the dramatic architectural design is enhanced with premium fittings and artworks. You can buy the property fully furnished, and have the option of adding on a residents-only Kiawah Island Golf membership.
