Holiday Homes 2016 House Details
The homeowners felt this home was the perfect “Forever House” for their family of five when they purchased it shortly after it was built in 2013. Features include a family room lined with windows and boasting a pickled pine vaulted ceiling and custom fireplace, extensive artwork, two home offices, and three-car garage. All upstairs bedrooms feature en suite baths and the master bedroom includes a vaulted ceiling. The custom-cabinetry kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and dual zone wine cooler and computer and art area for the children. Much time is spent outdoors, especially in the rear of the property where there are three separate seating areas on this one-acre lot.
This handsome Langley Forest home embodies Colonial Revival architecture, emphasizing symmetry and other traditional elements through a simplified, contemporary approach. Expanded from the homeowners’ original home by Johnson & Associates Architects, Inc. of South Carolina, twelve-foot ceilings and wide plank floors of antique southern pine distinguish the interior. Long, central hallways with adjoining rooms and a grand staircase exemplify the Colonial Revival design. Matching chimneys on each end of the structure are typical of the Georgian style of Colonial Revival. Many rooms feature coffered ceilings and wood paneling. A family/great room, a library, and a first floor master bedroom and bath featuring heated marble floors, and a large screened porch with wood burning fireplace are among the many delightful spaces of this home. Numerous paintings, including well-known South Carolina artists and artists from this region, may be viewed throughout the home.
This magnificent home would satisfy the wish list of the most discerning homeowner. A bright two-story foyer beckons visitors to the multiple rooms and many happy features of this home. A curved staircase leads to a balconied second floor. Beautiful gardens and a pool graced with fountains and waterfall are delightful outdoor elements that may be viewed as well from many of the home's light-filled windows. A home theatre, sauna, steam room, weight room and wine cellar, as well as a restful music room and sun room with four French doors leading to a balcony view of the pool are among the many wonderful appointments to this extraordinary home.
This lovely 1951 home presents as a traditional brick colonial from the outside, but it is a wonderful blend of Italian and French Renaissance and American architecture inside. The home was expanded in 1980 with a new wing to enlarge the kitchen, add a great room and more bedrooms for a growing family. Still very much a family home for the current homeowners, its special features include the nautically- themed “Nantucket Room” where the children study and create art projects. Large archways lead to an Italian kitchen with hand-made terracotta tiles from Tuscany. The second floor includes bedrooms and baths for two of the children, a guest bedroom and the master bedroom. A third floor boasts a suite for the homeowner’s oldest daughter, with a bedroom, bath and study. The spacious backyard includes a pool, pool house and a tree house.. Landscaping is designed to insure colorful blooming throughout the seasons.
This spectacular custom estate was inspired by Chateau de Chambord in France, and is nestled on a hill overlooking two acres and surrounded by national forest. Built three years ago by the Galileo Group, this 15,000 square foot masterpiece is an exquisite example of French Provincial style with careful attention to every detail. A total of six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, four half-baths, an artist’s studio, home gym, lower level family room, card game room, library, owners' home offices, billiards room and a wine cellar and tasking kitchen/area are among the home’s many fine appointments.
