Our Charleston style"Sandpiper" house plan captures the classic grace and simplicity of "Lowcountry" residential architecture. Raised off the ground to allow for tidal surges in hurricane conditions, the house has a commanding presence. This has the added benefit of allowing for covered parking below with room for boat storage, and multiple cars. Arched louvers allow water to flow through if necessary.
Graceful white steps lead to the typical Charleston covered porch. The front door with side lights and fan light above make for a welcoming entrance and a bright foyer. Tall "nine over nine" double-hung windows flank the entrance and provide classic symmetry. The exterior is traditional clapboard siding above a stucco lower level. The roof can be typical terracotta colored, standing seam, metal or architectural asphalt in a variety of color possibilities.
Designed as a story and a half, The Sandpiper has two floors of living space with total of 2,512 square feet packs a lot of features in a compact plan.
