Southern Living Magazine has always been a key source to capturing the Southern Lifestyle through culture, travel, home and more. While bringing our ideal visions to life on what it is like to live in the South, they have been introducing us to all the ways you can create it and make it authentically yours.
With Home being one of Southern Living's top categories, they offer their expert tips on not only styling your home for the season, holiday, or remodeling, they provide us with a start-to-finish guide on creating your new home in their House Plans.
Brown Design has been given the amazing opportunity to be apart of the Southern Living House Plans team. One of our very favorite traditional homes; our Abbey Row Cottage, has been selected. Located in the coastal town Habersham, just minutes outside of historic downtown Beaufort, South Carolina and chosen as South Carolina’s premiere Southern Living Inspired Community in 2015 by Southern Living Magazine.Our Abbey Row Cottage captures the Lowcountry lifestyle, with it's traditional design exterior and interior.
The home's interior is composed of three bedrooms, and three and a half bathrooms. Certain areas of the house are designed to be the social/more active spots, however, the rooms contain flexibility in how they can be converted to spaces designed for entertainment or even comfort. In addition to the home's spatial quality, with being a home located in a region that is warm for most of the year, the high ceilings are an energy efficient strategy on keeping the rooms cool.
Moving towards the exterior, the front displays a large front porch with ceiling fans-an engaging popular feature within neighborhoods and being a trademark of the South. The Single Family Home provides you with a versatility that allows you to build in a T3 Suburban Zone - T4 General Urban Zone. It gives you the feel for living downtown and living in a neighborhood.
Our Abbey Row Cottage contributes to making the streetscapes safe and pleasant to those who walk through the neighborhood, to downtown, or to the docks. While containing the classical details and proportions of enduring architecture, this home fits the traditional neighborhood concept, and takes on it's own unique configuration that composes and supplements the identity of the community.
