Kiawah River Estates is a gated single-family golf home community offering a Lowcountry lifestyle. River Estates is situated at the southern tip of John's Island, adjacent to Kiawah Island in South Carolina. The downtown Charleston area is just 30-minutes away, while Freshfields Village plus Bohicket Marina and Markets are both just three miles away.
Located on the far side of Johns Island, Kiawah River Estates was originally called Hope Plantation when it was first developed in the early 1990s. However, its association with the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, its location directly south across the marsh from Kiawah, and its history as a former indigo plantation have resulted in changing names over the years.
River Estates offers the beautiful surroundings of the tidal waters of Haulover Creek and the Kiawah River combined with the plentiful wildlife and shorebirds indigenous to the Lowcountry. The beauty of the Lowcountry is evident throughout the River Estates community with moss-draped ancient live oaks, tidal marshes, and abundant wildlife.

Real estate options at Kiawah River Estates include single-family golf homes and golf house homesites with golf courses and water views. Kiawah River Estates has condos in its Indigo Hall subsection but is otherwise made up purely of single-family houses. The golf homes and estates feature a number of distinct neighborhoods and are nestled among majestic live oaks draped in Spanish moss, many bordering the renowned Oak Point golf course of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The moss-draped oaks provide a unique backdrop for some magnificent golf residences in Kiawah River Estates.
Property owners have the exclusive option to join the Kiawah Island Governor's Club to enjoy golf on five championship golf courses, play tennis at the renowned Roy Barth Tennis Centre or relax in the pool at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
