The Loblolly is a beautiful spacious one-story plan, which is laid out to take advantage of the views. The entry hall leads to an open plan living room, kitchen and dining room that then open onto a covered porch, providing an uninterrupted vista through the space to maximize the views and increase the impression of space.
The master retreat has been located to take advantage of the rear views. Two other bedrooms with private baths are arranged around the perimeter, and a third room can act as either a den or fourth bedroom.
The exterior is reminiscent of traditional Lowcountry island retreats, featuring a distinctive roof design characterized by a high gabled center section flanked by low hipped roof lines with kicked eaves and exposed rafter tails. The front entry stairs are nestled into the shingled roof’s overhang, and the exterior is sided with board and batten and accented with wood louvers.
