New to Market! 16 Sweet Grass Lane, Bluffton SC 29910
Nestled in its lush, wooded site within the equestrian community of Rose Dhu Creek Plantation, this architectural masterpiece is marvelous yet introverted. From its exterior, the cottage-like home reads as a single piece from which its interior is carved out. The heart of the home, a two-story cathedral ceiling volume known as "the chapel", consists of a central living space and kitchen offering a clear path and view into all other spaces in the residence. Open the 10' sliding glass panels to blend together the indoor and outdoor living spaces, accented by a magnificent pool and fountain as focal points.
Neatly nestled in its densely wooded site within the equestrian community of Rose Dhu Creek Plantation, this single-family 4 bedroom home, clad in stained "camouflage" cedar shingle, was conceived as having an introverted character. From its exterior, the cottage-like structure reads as one solid mass, from which its interior rooms are carved out. The residence features minimal use of hallways, instead favoring interconnected spaces that bleed one directly into the next. The heart of the home, a two-story cathedral ceiling volume is known as "the chapel", consists of a central living space and kitchen offering a clear path and view into all other spaces in the residence. The walls feature horizontal rough-sawn pine paneling that acts as a continuous ribbon tying all first floor rooms together. The rear facing paved deck features a pool and fountain placed as a visual focal point for the master bedroom, living room, and dining room. Once the 10' tall sliding glass panels are opened, these rooms again blend together emphasizing the project's goal of forming continuity between indoor and outdoor living spaces.
