In Lowcountry architecture, the emphasis is placed on comfortable outdoor living spaces that protect users from the heat, humidity and insects. This style of home is also designed to create a cooling effect indoors with a central breezeway that encourages air movement throughout. All of these features, including gorgeous interior design, is what makes this particular home a memorable one.
The home's exterior is clad in traditional, and locally sourced materials, such as board and batten siding and a standing-seam metal roof. The balance of the sitting room and porch on other side of the front door creates a pleasing symmetry. The inside of this spacious 2877 square foot residence is open and airy with pale white walls and rustic wood floors. The interior decor is a careful combination of cottage and farmhouse themed materials and colors. At the front of the home a wood burning fireplace, covered in red brick, immediately welcomes guests and provides that soothing burnt wood aroma. Further down the hall, another living room provides access to one of the many outdoor spaces.
The custom kitchen is designed around a central island painted a soft gray to contrast with the white cabinets. Stone countertops and a coordinating backsplash reflect light in the space and add a little sparkle. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining table that sits in front of two walls of windows. While the dining room is located inside, access to windows creates the effect of dining outdoors. Without a doubt, this 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is truly Lowcountry living at its finest.
Close to the main entrance this sitting room features coffered ceilings and a stately brick fireplace.
Worn wood flooring and rustic ceiling beams add a touch of farmhouse chic to this passageway and sitting area.
Tucked beneath the staircase, a built-on desk provides a quiet place to work.
Two rooms meld into one when the patio doors are swung open to one of the home's many outdoor living spaces.
The covered porch has a ceiling painted a beachy blue that is said to keep away the pesky bugs.
The custom kitchen is outfitted with Shaker-style cabinetry, curved cabinet feet and stainless steel appliances.
