We are currently working on a home design in Seabrook Village on Seabrook Island. Seabrook Village is a planned community with small lots allowing residents a smaller home footprint meaning less upkeep, while not compromising amenities or lifestyle.
In an effort to create an overall harmonious feel amongst the homes, The Village of Seabrook allows a limited palate of exterior finishes and color. In addition, each design has to be approved not only by the Island ARC but also by the Homeowners association for compliance with their ordinances and then the design becomes available for any new homeowners to build. This has resulted in a very limited selection of designs used and the overall effect is perhaps a little too much consistency.
Our Empty Nester clients wanted to see what the possibilities could be for their forever home. They wanted something unique that specifically met their functional needs and also presented a look that matched their personalities: elegant, vibrant and fresh. Swallowtail Architecture, with our track record of successfully working to meet the rigorous standards of local and community design review boards, worked successfully to meet the needs of the homeowner while maintaining the exacting community standards. We were able to work with the SIPOA’s Architectural Review Committee, the Village at Seabrook’s Board of Directors, and the Town of Seabrook Island Planning Commission to comply with all of the design guidelines and deliver on our client’s wishes.
The result is something fresh in The Village. One member of the ARC said it would be the prettiest home in the whole village! The team at Swallowtail is very happy that we were able to satisfy the needs of both the community and our homeowner and are pleased to be able to offer additional options for new homeowners wanting to live in Seabrook Village.
