This 2,875 square foot house lives amazingly large due to the efficient layout and generous rooms afforded by the limitation of hall space and careful attention to function. The 48' x 104' footprint fits easily onto a long narrow site where the sides and back serve as the focus of outdoor living.
We have labeled the side the "Front" in this elevation to demonstrate the full aspect of the house and living areas. The narrow front end, provides a subtle front entrance on the 48' (street)side, much like the Charleston "single house" with its veranda and side porches on long side elevations on long, narrow lots.
We have labeled the side the "Front"in this elevation to demonstrate the full aspect of the house and living areas on the long side.
The ground floor at 2,092 square feet allows for essentially all living on this floor. A large master suite and bath are conveniently located just off the main living area. The great room features a 14' tall vaulted and beamed ceiling surrounded on two sides by 8' arched French doors opening onto a terrace and covered porch. Both have large fireplaces.
Just before the living area, the dining room links to both the kitchen and great room. The kitchen is open enought to the living area to feel a part of it while still partially screened from view.
Tucked out of view yet easily accessible from the kitchen is a large study with fireplace and coffered ceiling. This relationship of spaces makes for convenient, private, casual living.
Just off the kitch en is a two car garage and attached workshop.
