METALLIC GLAZED CERAMIC TILES LEND A CONTEMPORARY TOUCH TO THE FIREPLACE, WHILE A CUSTOM MADE ROUND RUG ANCHORS AN INTIMATE SEATING GROUP IN THE LIVING ROOM.

For a pair of Chicago transplants, relocating to the Lowcountry did not mean leaving behind the slick style of the Windy City. The experts at Randy Jeffcoat Builders recently constructed a spectacular new abode for this couple in beautiful Berkeley Hall Plantation. Assisted by the creative talents at Kelley Designs, Inc., they combined old world European charm with sleek, modern sophistication. The home is elegant, inviting, and full of little surprises.

In the main house, a succession of interestingly shaped rooms and spaces with varying volume ceilings wrap around a central courtyard with a pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace. Bordered on the other side is a casita, housing a guest room, an office, and a large outdoor bar for parties.

A butler’s pantry with a barrel-vaulted ceiling links the formal dining room to the spacious gourmet kitchen, which boasts a semi-circular built-in booth. An inviting wine cave, complete with a cork floor, rounds out the entertainment areas of the main house.


MILK-CHOCOLATE COLORED WALLS ENVELOPE THE MASTER BEDROOM WITH WARMTH, WHILE THE AMBIENT LIGHTING HIGHLIGHTS THE CROWN MOLDING. A LACQUERED BED EVOKES THE ASIAN VIBE.

IN THE DINING ROOM A PAIR OF CYLINDRICAL PENDANT LIGHTS CAST A WELCOMING GLOW ON THE CUSTOM TABLE, TOPPED WITH DOLCE VITA GRANITE. A LARGE WALL OF WINDOWS AFFORDS SERENE VIEWS OF THE LAGOON AND GOLF COURSE.

IN THE POWDER ROOM AN UP-LIT GLASS COUNTERTOP GLOWS AND ADDS A GLIMMERING SHINE TO THE METALLIC FAUX-FINISHED WALLS.

THE WINE CAVE FEATURES CUSTOM-BUILT WINE RACKS, A CORK FLOOR, AND A BUILT-IN TABLE MADE FROM A WINE BARREL.


THE LARGE BUT EFFICIENT KITCHEN MAKES ROOM FOR TWO COOKS TO ENJOY THE SPACE.

ARCHES, CURVES, AND ANGLED VAULTS CONVERGE IN THE FOYER AND LIVING ROOM TO CREATE A DYNAMIC SPACE. THE STAIRWAY LEADS TO A PRIVATE RETREAT FOR READING, WATCHING TELEVISION, OR TAKING IN THE VIEWS FROM THE EXTERIOR BALCONY.

ADJACENT TO THE KITCHEN, A SPACIOUS FAMILY ROOM, WITH DISAPPEARING SLIDING DOORS, CONNECTS THIS PART OF THE HOUSE WITH THE COURTYARD.

DESIGNED FOR ENTERTAINING, THE COURTYARD FEATURES EVERY IMAGINABLE CONVENIENCE INCLUDING POOL, SPA, FIREPLACE, AND A LARGE BAR.
