CELEBRATE HILTON HEAD
Family Retreat on the Green
The visual language of the Lowcountry is in a constant state of flux. When the first Sea Pines homes began materializing among the live oaks and palmettoes,
their color palette reflected the bucolic splendor around them with rich browns and greens; their furnishings evoked the natural elements of colonial Caribbean; and their low-sloping rooflines borrowed heavily from Asian design.
And then came the rise of coastal chic, swapping browns and greens for crisp whites and soothing seafoam, incorporating modern farmhouse flair into furnishings, and leaning hard into the outdoor living that’s only possible where the salt air blows.
HILTON HEAD MONTHLY
Palmetto Bluff home tailored to new owners’ tastes and lifestyle
Change in the heart of the Lowcountry comes slowly — and most often in subtle tones when it does.
When Bill and Bonnie Miller bought their furnished home tucked away in May River Forest at Palmetto Bluff three years ago, they were impressed with the quality, detail of craftsmanship, architecture, design and location of the home. They didn’t want to change a thing structurally of the residence, built 10 years ago by Bluffton’s Reclamation by Design based on an architectural design by a Savannah firm.
Beauty by the Beach
When homeowners Rick Amatucci and Maryann Bastnagel bought the ½-acre property on which an older home sat 14 years ago as a vacation residence, the promise of that view in their mind’s eye was just a matter of when, not if, it would be theirs to enjoy.
Rick Amatucci and Maryann Bastnagel built their 4,029-square-foot, five bedroom, six bathroom dream home on Marsh Wren Road in the South Beach area of Sea Pines. The home features a T-shaped pool, an expansive living room and an unbeatable view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Incorporating tangible pieces of history into homes, offices and stores provides beauty, nostalgia, artistry, eco-consciousness and an enduring show-and-tell. Sustainable and reclaimed building materials are here to stay, experts say—they’re not just a design fad.
“Some want the look, and others want a piece of the past,” says William Court, partner at architectural firm Court Atkins Group. “The appeal, both residential and commercial, has grown over time.”
LOW COUNTRY HOME MAGAZINE
“Most of our renovation projects entail the entire home so we fully commit our signature craftsmanship and exceptional client experience,” says Brian Esposito, president, and owner of EspositoConstruction. He and wife Leslie have carefully grown their Lowcountry custom building and renovation business since 2008 in the Lowcountry, ensuring each project is a memorable and personable encounter clients/owners who choose to build or renovate homes in private communities throughout Hilton Head Island or Bluffton.
Before You Start – Remodel Checklist
Use this common sense checklist to find the right remodeler for your job.
- Make sure the home remodeler has a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers.
- Find out how long the builder has been in the building business. It usually takes three to five years to establish a financially sound business. You want to make sure they will be around after the construction is complete to service any warranties.
