Oceanfront Kiawah Island home sells for $13.5 million
Another multimillion-dollar residential real estate transaction recently occurred on Kiawah Island.
The oceanfront house at 122 Flyway Drive sold Nov. 10 for $13.5 million, according to Kiawah Island Real Estate, which handled the sale for the seller and buyer.
Mark A. McFarland and Cassie H. McFarland of Dallas bought the 6,667-square-foot house, with six bedrooms and 7½ bathrooms, from a firm called B-Tach LLC, which bought the property in 2015 for $6.3 million, according to Charleston County land records.
County records also show the McFarlands bought a property in 2013 at 171 Bull Thistle Lane on the island.
The real estate firm, which handles the majority of sales on the gated, seaside community, called the sale the most expensive on the island so far during the fourth quarter.
The transaction comes after the $11.65 million sale — recorded in early November in Charleston County — of the 9,000-square-foot house up the street at 147 Flyway Drive.
The home was listed by Jim Stuckey of Kiawah Island Real Estate. Kelly Henry of the same firm represented the buyer.
Neither of those sales sets a record for the island.
The highest-priced home to sell on Kiawah Island and in the Charleston area is the Vanderhorst Mansion on Governor's Drive. It changed hands in June for $20.5 million.
Overall island real estate sales stand at $741 million through the first nine months of the year, while Kiawah Island Real Estate handled $549 million through the first three quarters, a 60 percent increase over the same period last year.
