Take a Virtual Walk-Through
From the front exterior, it’s hard to miss the amazing oversized front porch running the length of the house. The attractive wide columns and lantern-inspired lighting exemplify the charm of this modern farmhouse.
The Coppersmith’s Creole 27 natural gas lamps flanks either side of the Thermatru Entry door. The warm glow and flicker of the flame greet you as your approach the large, low country inspired front porch.
Note, the hardi porch ceilings. They are painted “haint blue.” Folklore refers to the concept of “haint,” a Southern variation on the word “haunt” that refers to a ghost or spirit. Blue represents water and apparently spirits cannot traverse water. Homeowners often paint the ceilings, the window trim and sometimes the doors to theoretically keep spirits away.
What started as superstition has since translated into a design trend. No one would think twice about painting their porch blue because their grandmother’s and their parents’ porches were blue. This trend has now permeated into porch design. In fact, the pale blue-green tint is now known in design circles as “haint blue.”
On the other side of the oversized door, step into the brightly lit foyer that seamlessly spills into the sprawling modern open floorplan.
The open space features paneled ceilings with beams, beautiful light wood floors (Carolina Mountain Hardwood / Tidewater Collection /Oak Winter Marsh), and a wall of glass doors that invite the outside in and inside out, allowing for an abundance of natural light.
The living area features a low-profile fireplace and custom built-ins, creating a homey front room.
Bright white cabinets, walls and ceilings, contrasted by the darker wood of the oversized island, make this truly a remarkable modern farmhouse kitchen, topped off with stainless steel appliances (including a Thermador 36” gas rangetop) and many windows. The sink is a Blanco Diamond Single Bowl in Anthracite, highlighted by a Moen faucet with brushed gold accents. Another fun feature of this home is the custom tile backsplash with floating shelving in the kitchen.
Taking the stairs to the second floor, hardwoods continue through to the primary bedroom with a bank of windows overlooking the pool in the backyard. The bedroom also features an impressive en suite with zero entry and a tiled walk-in shower.
A large butler’s pantry and separate laundry room with custom built-ins are just some of the features that make this custom build a showpiece.
The backyard patio is a spectacular gathering space featuring an in-ground pool and easy-to-maintain landscaping, encompassing the owner’s lifestyle needs.
