(Charleston, SC– June 7, 2018) Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’sInternational Realty announces the sale of a 7100 square foot, 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom custom oceanfront home on Kiawah Island for $10,000,000. The seller was represented by Middleton Rutledge of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty and the buyer was represented by Lisa Costas of Carolina One Real Estate.

This shingle style house was designed by local architect Sam Furr and built by Tracey Hutchins in 2008.  The property sits on a beautifully landscaped .75 acre lot with 100 feet of ocean frontage with a private boardwalk that meanders to the beach. Notable features of the luxury residence include custom interior millwork, wide plank mahogany floors, wine room, media room, hot tub, outdoor kitchen, expansive deck and pool, and separate guest house.  The new owner will also enjoy a spacious 3rd floor master suite, elevator to all levels, and 2 car garage.

“We were able to sell the home before it was officially listed on the MLS,” according to Mid Rutledge, who brokered the deal on behalf of the seller. “The architectural details, combined with the high quality of interior finishes and the spectacular views of the ocean, was a great fit for the buyers, who are from Chicago. This home is also one of the very few which has a European style garden on the ocean side of the house, which was well thought out and brilliantly designed by the seller,” says Rutledge.

According to MLS, the sale of this home on Sand Fiddler Ct. is the highest price paid for a single family home on Kiawah so far this year and also the largest sale in the Charleston area in 2018. Last year, Mid Rutledge of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty also represented both sides of an off-market deal at 85 Blue Heron Pond Road, which at $15,250,000, is the highest price ever paid for a residence in the history of the CharlestonMLS. Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty also holds the record for the highest price ever paid in downtown Charleston, and on Isle of Palms.

Broker in Charge and owner Dan Ravenel comments, “ We are proud to represent top sales regularly in our marketplace. We are seeing many national and international buyers come to Charleston to purchase luxury homes, and we have the benefit of meeting many of them through our affiliation with the Sotheby’s Auction House.” “With tightening inventory in the higher price points, well priced properties such as this home often sell quickly, which is why it is critical to align yourself with a firm experienced in the luxury space.”
