Luxury Living at Kiawah Island

Tired of the hustle and bustle of city living? Relocate to South Carolina’s best kept secret.  Located only 15 miles south of Charleston, Kiawah Island is the ideal destination for pleasure seekers. Buffington Homes is your premiere custom home builder in the Kiawah Island area.

This barrier island is rich in maritime forests and lush beaches. Kiawah is the distinctive combination of Southern hospitality and luxury private island living.

Imagine waking up in your brand new home to the sounds of the tide breaking on the shore while enjoying the beautiful sunrise from your bed. You walk down stairs in your chef’s kitchen to eat breakfast while appreciating the breathtaking views from your large bay window. You spend the rest of your morning biking in the 21-acre Night Heron Park with your significant other. Later that day, you enjoy the anticipated Lowcountry oyster roast and barbecue with your family. To complete your eventful day, you watch the sun set on the beach from your spacious patio. What makes this day even better is knowing that you can enjoy this vacation lifestyle every day.

Nothing is better than enjoying the coastal environment while in the comfort of your own custom built home.  Residents of Kiawah enjoy taking advantage of the waterfront beaches with their family, enjoying spa amenities and dining at many of the restaurants in town.  There’s no wonder why Kiawah was voted America’s Happiest Seaside Town by Coastal Living. While here, take time to enjoy all of the wildlife the island has to offer.

Kiawah is the ideal location for exploration.  Enjoy a day at the Cassique golf course, home of the 94th PGA Championship. Take your prized boat out for a ride from Mingo Point to the marina. On the weekend, enjoy concerts and farmers markets in Freshfields Village. Enjoy deep sea fishing? Enjoy angling in the Kiawah River. Want to learn about the island’s rich history? Sign up for a tour at the Kiawah Island Nature Center. Whatever your interests, Kiawah is sure to not disappoint.

The island is the perfect location for family life. Your children will attend exceptional schools, both public and private.  If your child wishes to stay close to home for university, located nearby is the College of Charleston and the Medical University of South Carolina.
