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 2,877-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. Without a doubt, this 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is truly Lowcountry living at its finest.
At the front of the home, a wood-burning fireplace, covered in stately red brick, immediately welcomes guests and provides a soothing burnt wood aroma. This sitting room also features coffered ceilings.
Worn wood flooring and rustic ceiling beams add a touch of farmhouse chic to this passageway and sitting area. A ceiling fan keeps air moving.
Tucked beneath the staircase, a built-in 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 pesky bugs.
The custom kitchen is outfitted with Shaker-style cabinetry, curved cabinet feet and stainless steel appliances. It's 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.
Next to the kitchen is a dining table that sits in front of two walls of windows. Although the dining room is inside, access to windows creates the effect of dining outdoors. A circular table fits perfectly into this refreshing angular alcove.
A unique window installation allows the master bed to fit neatly between the panes.
