Oceanfront Home on Kiawah Island

If you haven't toured HGTV Dream Home 2013 yet, you should. An Asian-inspired coastal cottage set south of Charleston on Kiawah Island, the charming abode is surrounded by a serene landscape of tidal marshes and evergreen shrubs. We can't get enough of Kiawah and its stunning scenery, so today, we're stepping inside a Mediterranean-inspired mansion on this picturesque island.

Location: Kiawah Island, S.C.
Listed By: Kiawah Island Real Estate
Price: $12,225,000

A foil to Dream Home's tranquil marsh setting, this estate lies on 1.8 acres just steps from the crashing waves of the Atlantic. Nearly every room -- not to mention 3,946 square feet of outdoor living space -- overlooks stunning scenes of sandy dunes, palmetto trees and sparkling ocean. We wouldn't mind waking up to that view in the gorgeous master bedroom suite, lined with a wall of ocean-facing French doors leading to a private balcony.

If you like this place, you'll love the latest Dream Home. Set in Indigo Park -- Kiawah's premier green neighborhood -- the residence features a soaring great room with a serene color palette, a Zen-style kitchen with pro-style appliances and an alluring plunge pool overlooking the marsh scenery.
