About the owner: There are two lucky owners of 520 Ruddy Turnstone--the Murphy's and the Scates'. Dan and Suzan Murphy teach business at The University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN and Greg Scates works for the PCAOB in Washington, DC. We have never met, but have mutual friends! We have a perfect partnership!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We bought this property sight unseen, but we had both vacationed in Kiawah for years and knew we wanted to own a home here. This house is wonderful! It has a wonderful feel to it--very well constructed and maintained. We recently updated the kitchen and the house has a large screened in porch overlooking the pool.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We are one of the few private homes that has a pool.
