Kiawah Island, S.C., owes much of its allure to the 10,000-acre community’s slow, meticulous development of individually designed homes—an aesthetically minded approach that began with Kiawah’s founding in 1972. Today, Kiawah remains ever mindful of design, even in its latest offering of smaller, turnkey vacation homes. The community’s new Indigo Park neighborhood of 16 LEED-certified homes is being developed by the New York–based firm Dyal Compass as a conservation-focused enclave, and it will conform to the island’s strict architectural guidelines by maintaining the Lowcountry style. The homes measure between 2,118 square feet and 3,568 square feet, come in three design layouts, and are built as purchased. The first three were completed last spring. Each includes NuCedar shingles that do not require painting or staining; integrated geothermal systems; and a 220-volt outlet in the garage for charging an electric car. Pricing ranges from $1.5 million to $2.3 million. Buyers have the option of purchasing a Kiawah Island Club membership, which starts at $50,000 and provides access to the two private golf courses (there are also five public courses on the island) and privileges at the club’s private restaurants and clubhouses.
