BL Harbert International Leads Construction For New Oceanfront Private Residence Club On Kiawah Island, South Carolina

BL Harbert International announced today that it is leading construction efforts on Timbers Kiawah – Ocean Club & Residences, the first private residence club to be built on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

Developed by Timbers Resorts, one of the largest independent developers and operators of private boutique resorts and residence clubs, the oceanfront enclave showcases 21 thoughtfully-designed residences, as well as a first-of-its-kind collection of dedicated amenities, all just 30 minutes from Charleston, recently ranked the No. 1 City in the World by Travel + Leisure.

The team broke ground on the nearly 80,000-square-foot oceanfront development designed by Poss Architecture + Planning in spring 2017 and Timbers Resorts recently announced the first public offering of ownership opportunities. The project is slated for completion in summer 2018.

“We are honored to partner with Timbers Resorts to bring the Timbers Kiawah – Ocean Club & Residences project to life,” stated Ben Nevins, Senior Vice President at BL Harbert International. “This oceanfront private residence club will attract people from across the country who want to enjoy the beauty and diversity of Kiawah Island.”

Timbers Kiawah offers two shared ownership categories across the beachfront homes that embrace the light, airy, and natural design elements to complement the island’s relaxed atmosphere along with private expansive patios and incredible ocean views. Owners have the option of selecting a 1/9th fractional interest in the property’s 2,200-square-foot, three-bedroom residences, or a 1/6th fractional interest in the 3,600-square-foot, four-bedroom penthouse residences.

“Kiawah Island is a remarkably special destination that we have followed for many years knowing that our Timbers Collection Owners place tremendous value on oceanfront living in this region of the country,” said Greg Spencer, Timbers Resorts Chief Executive Officer.  “The launch of sales at Timbers Kiawah Ocean Club & Residences is momentous for the Timbers Resorts brand and represents years of hard work and collective focus on delivering a truly unique resort club experience that feeds off the energy and storied history of the island.”

Owners will have access to a dedicated set of top-tier amenities, including a private clubhouse with a central lounge area, a concierge services team, valet, a state-of-the-art fitness facility and a temperature-controlled owner’s wine wall. The private beach club set just steps from the ocean will be outfitted with an oceanfront pool, grill and specialty beach activities. The sales office, located at 255 Gardner’s Circle, Kiawah Island in Freshfields Village, recently opened to the public on May 27th and reflects the carefree beach design aesthetic that will echo what the future residences at Timbers Kiawah will look like.

The most coveted activities available to Timbers Kiawah Owners stem from what only the island can offer, including 30 miles of paved biking trails on lush green terrain, an inland waterway with access to the marina and river entry, and family friendly watersport activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, crabbing and fishing. Not only is Kiawah Island home to these stellar ocean-front activities, but the destination also boasts more than 90 holes of championship golf and world-class tennis including the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, which will host the 2021 PGA Championship, previously hosted at the course in 2012.

Timbers Kiawah – Ocean Club & Residences will be conveniently located oceanfront on Kiawah Island’s Beachwalker Drive, minutes from Freshfields Village, the community’s boutique shopping and dining center, and 45 minutes to Charleston International Airport.
