Home on tour for Preservation Society of Charleston

A shingle style home we designed at 14 Ocean Course and recently featured in Traditional Home magazine will be on tour today for the Preservation Society of Charleston.  Our generous owners have allowed us this very wonderful organization the use of their home.  The home is a “reverse” plan home with the principal living, kitchen and dining areas on the second floor.  This affords a better view over the Ocean Course to the Atlantic Ocean.  The challenge of this design was to integrate 9,000 sq. foot home and its guest house  collection of trees totaling 110″ in caliper.
