Downtown Firm DRSIR handled both sides of a record breaking transaction this week on Kiawah Island. The property located at 85 Blue Heron Pond Rd in the exclusive Preserve section of the island traded hands for $15,250,000. Situated on a private 11.7 acre peninsula, the property boasts over 15,000 square feet including a separate guest house, deep water dock, luxurious infinity pool, professional grade kitchen, and top of the line finishes throughout. The home was designed by world renown architects Shope Reno Wharton and built by Russ Cooper and Associates in 2005. Middleton Rutledge of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty was the sole broker in this sale which sets a record for the highest price ever paid for an MLS sale on Kiawah Island. (Kiawah Island Real Estate does not participate in the MLS). The property was previously listed with Daniel Ravenel SIR, but the sale was conducted off market. The firm also holds the MLS records for the #2 and #3 transactions on the island (109 Flyway Drive sold for $10.7M in 2013, and 345 Surfsong sold for $5.8M in 2014). “We are pleased to provide our clients with our famous white-glove service both on and off Kiawah Island, and are honored to have been able to serve again in this capacity.
