Located on historic Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston, this beach house combines modern and historic design elements. The clients wanted a old “lowcountry” style beach house feel and they wanted the beach house to have bright and open coastal interiors that were comfortable and welcoming to their guests. They also wanted it to work for their growing family and be kid friendly.
Brilliantly designed by Beau Clowney Architects and with interiors by Jenny Keenan Design, this home also features a reverse plan, where the main living spaces and bedroom spaces for the family are on the upper floor to take advantage of the expansive views and the lower level is reserved for guests.
Pin, save and share this incredible beach house. All of the details such as paint colors, lighting, furniture, flooring and decor have been shared by the designer. I hope you feel inspired!
