Ocean Park Neighborhood Debuts at Kiawah Island

New home sites offer protected views, proximity to The Ocean Course

May 31, 2012 (Kiawah Island, SC) – Kiawah Island Real Estate announced today that the first eight home sites are now available for purchase at Ocean Park, the newest residential neighborhood at Kiawah Island.  Ocean Park is located at Kiawah’s eastern end and is one of the last undeveloped parcels of land available on the sea island.  Set in a mature maritime forest with iconic grand oak trees, the community offers protected views of Lowcountry creeks and marsh and is adjacent to The Ocean Course, a Pete Dye designed links golf course that will host the 94th PGA Championship in August.

The initial property offering within Ocean Park will consist of eight home sites that have been chosen to showcase the breadth of natural beauty that is available to future residents. The neighborhood offers the most protected views on Kiawah by virtue of bordering 150 acres of land that has been conveyed to the Kiawah Island Nature Conservancy to be held in their trust in perpetuity.

All the home sites in the first phase average half an acre in size and are designed exclusively for custom built single-family homes.  Five sites are positioned next to Bass Creek overlooking salt marsh landscapes and priced between $945,000 and $1.99 million, while three others offer views seaward across The Ocean Course which are priced between $2.45 million and $2.75 million. 

“Ocean Park represents some of the best of what Kiawah Island has to offer in terms of a tranquil setting, protected coastal views, and convenience to world-class golf,” said Chris Drury, President of Kiawah Island Real Estate. “The natural setting coupled with Kiawah’s unmatched lifestyle amenities provide opportunities for families to share valuable time together creating memories that will last several lifetimes.”

Given the recent increase in home site sales as well as the growing anticipation for the 2012 PGA Championship, the neighborhood is debuting at a time when Kiawah is already top of mind. Ocean Park is positioned to capitalize on those factors while drawing additional attention by appealing to golfers and nature lovers alike. 

By being close to the Ocean Course and having the option to join the private Kiawah Island Club or Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Governor’s Club, golfers will potentially have the choice to play seven championship courses.  Those who choose to enjoy the natural environment will benefit from easy access to saltwater marshes as well as 10 miles of Atlantic Ocean beach.

Kiawah Island Real Estate is the exclusive brokerage of Ocean Park and market leader for buying and selling real estate at Kiawah.  Through May 31, Kiawah Island Real Estate holds an 86% market share and has closed more than $80 million in transactions.
