Project Info

This new country house, with its detached garage and horse barn, is located on old rice plantation land, about an hour south of Charleston. The client had a strong vision for the house floor plan as well as an image for the front of the house. The trapezoidal footprint of the house creates an entry courtyard and allows for wide views of the land around the rear three sides of the house.  The lower roof provides ample space for second floor attic-like rooms, while fitting perfectly amongst the ancient live oak trees.  The interior includes a vaulted open space for living, dining, and cooking, with timber framing and high dormer windows. At the clients’ request, we recreated the kitchen from their downtown Charleston home, previously designed by LFA Architecture, since they love it so much.
