The exterior is suggestive of traditional Lowcountry island retreats featuring a roof design composed of gabled and shed roofs flanked by low hip roof lines with large overhangs that shade the front and rear porches. A metal roof, lap siding and louvered vents further support the Lowcountry architecture. The welcoming front stairs lead to an endless porch covered by a low hip roof with large overhangs. The entry hall leads to an open plan kitchen, living room and dining room that provide for an uninterrupted view through the length of the space to the outside. With a separate den and a a screened porch for alfresco dining, you will be at home in this Lowcountry, coastal designed home. The design includes a variety of window groupings and sizes to maximizes the natural light, while not limiting interior furniture or art placement.
The first floor master suite is spacious and also includes access to the outdoor deck. With all of the public spaces on the first floor, and with the master suite and one additional bedroom on the main floor, The Virginia is the perfect floor plan for aging in place. For additional flex space, the second floor contains two guest bedrooms symmetrically organized around a loft area that opens onto a deck. The secondary bedrooms can be used as a bunk room and guest quarters or for the special interests of the owners, which could include a craft room, a study, a library, or an art studio
