Charming South Carolina house mixes contemporary and historic elements

This custom designed home was completed by , located in Mount Pleasant, a large suburban town in Charleston County, South Carolina. Having remodeled in the past the homeowners decided to build this time, finding a beautiful property in the Brickyard Plantation neighborhood of Mount Pleasant. This particular area contains 513 acres, more than 100 of which are reserved to lakes, forests and wetlands. The property itself is very unique, as there is the main residence and a land bridge, connecting to a small island on the same property.

From design to build, the project took two-and-a-half years to complete. The architects did not want the homeowners to move too hastily on design decisions, taking a year to complete just the design phase. Their take on the process is that usually most homeowners build just once and they wanted them to get it right the first time. Overall the home encompasses just over 5,000 square feet of living space for this family of five.

There are a total of five bedrooms, with the master bedroom suite and children’s bedrooms on the second level. When the homeowners have guests spend the night, they can have their own space on the downstairs level. On the exterior, bluestone is used as the material for the patio space, which also features a fire pit. From the patio, the small island and dock is just a short distance away. There is a boardwalk over the marsh to the island and dock, presenting a very unique outdoor experience.

The interior offers a warm and inviting transitional style. Since the homeowners had lived in so many places due to their military background, they wanted to combine contemporary and historic elements.
