The Sorel

The Sorel is a quaint coastal-inspired design featuring an open, efficient layout that makes the most of its square footage. Abundant natural light floods the interior of the home, where a fireplace and access to the covered courtyard highlight the main area. The master bedroom is situated away from the secondary bedrooms for privacy.  A study, drop zone and laundry room complete this home.  The home offers an option to expand by creating additional space upstairs. 



The Cottonwood

Create a home where tradition can endure. Coastal architecture is defined by simple details and while not a Southern invention, shutters are a part of the Deep South design and enhance the front exterior of this home. To help the home live large, atrium doors between the living room and courtyard open to combine the space.  It works as an extension of the interior. The bedroom wing is located to the rear of the home and includes a mud room area, laundry and office. If you need additional bedrooms or bonus space it can be added upstairs.

The Barton II

An inviting front porch welcomes all who approach with simple, columns and room for rocking chairs, perfect for a visit from neighbors and friends.  The central living room anchors the main floor as the space for activities and gatherings. A chef’s kitchen with a large island provides all needed appliances for meal preparation and entertaining. The owner’s suite is also on the main floor for privacy and to create a restful retreat. The upper floor contains two large bedrooms each with ample closet space and access to the bath. A bonus room is perfect for recreation.



The Camden

The Camden is defined by its tasteful open spaces that are ideal for intimate gatherings and entertaining friends. The large corner courtyard offers a serene outdoor living space and creates a harmonious blend of outdoor and indoor living. The three bedrooms on the first floor are private and tranquil.  An  expansive master suite gives homeowners generous space to relax.   A multi-purpose drop area and powder room is located to the back of the home. The optional second floor can offer additional bedrooms and a bonus room.
