This beautiful custom project was built on the same lot as a tear-down home on the south end of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina in the world renowned gated private community of Sea Pines Plantation. This custom-build perfectly blends a modern, while classic, design featuring premium and antique finishes gathered specifically for this home by our clients. Birthed by their strongly influenced eclectic Chicago style, our goal was to creatively combine a midwest flare with southern elements.
Entering a simple yet impactful front entrance is a curved staircase wall creating a warm and inviting incline to the second floor and is complimented by a solid and sturdy black iron handrail. Finishing the space off is a stunning custom star light fixture providing warmth as you walk through a custom-made solid mahogany wood front door.
Designed as a simplified, but well-appointed transitional home, our clients opted to complete the homes details to include antique custom french doors, refurbished antique furniture, and repurposed lighting. Carefully chosen and coordinated, this created a cohesive look throughout the spaces. Not only is this home beautiful, but it is also highly functional, making it the perfect place to entertain or enjoy the calmness of the lowcountry.
The custom kitchen brings us back to the days of old with deep farm sink, tiled walls, gold metallic cabinet hardware and custom cabinetry including a pantry area with sink and prep area. This space includes ample storage options paired with design elements keeping the modern but functional theme of the home. Enjoy eat-in dining for morning breakfasts in this sun-filled kitchen space.
Historical and common lowcountry elements used include shiplap, stained wood beams, and Old Savannah brick. Honed Guatemalan Serpentine onyx marble countertops with classic faucets, light and bright modern marble tiled shower design featuring elegant glass doors open to a walk-in area with glass shower walls and white marble backsplash adorn the bathrooms providing a clean, polished, bright area. Overhead rainhead with handheld shower head provides a comforting option. The contemporary designs of the bathrooms and luxurious feel makes a shower experience one to remember.
Spacious and cozy living area features custom wood floors and custom-built, handle-less storage cabinets located on each side of the fireplace – barely noticeable to the eye. Uniquely built into the wall, they provide a beautiful storage option. Relative to the historic time this style would have been built, the enclosed back porch off the living area provides an alternative space for entertaining or relaxation through the glass french doors.
Often overlooked, our owners desire a well-thought-out laundry room to provide efficiency and functionality. Custom built cabinetry for ample storage and a sink area that provides utilitarian while stylish space. Antique light fixtures paired with wood floors completes the laundry area.
A tranquil outdoor oasis with the perfect combination of PA Bluestone and Old Savannah pavers adds a timeless texture to the outdoor area of the home that surrounds the saltwater pool and spa – perfect for the beautiful coastal weather of the area. The pavers provide functionality of a pool area while withstanding the unique lowcountry heat and climate.
Artisan siding by Hardie featured with Boral trim complete the southern styled exterior able to weather the high moisture and environment of the south. Custom made wood corbel bracket add decorative architectural aesthetics to the attached multi-car garage.
