The warm and textured copper found in the over scaled hood and mosaic backsplash complement the copper fleck that is naturally occurring in the stone countertops.

Cameron & Cameron Custom Homes began construction on Richard and Michelle’s home in the fall of 2014. The intricate and detailed home was completed in just under 15 months. The homeowners were looking for “a Lowcountry home and style with understated elegance and comfort.”
The team at Court Atkins Group designed a floorplan around the sprawling views of Spring Island, as seen across the expansive Colleton River. The first-floor plan includes the main living areas and a master bedroom suite, which contains an attached sitting room and a fireplace featuring a floor-to-ceiling brick wall; his and hers closets; and a bathroom complete with a couple’s shower and deep soaking tub. The main kitchen, butler’s pantry, and wet bar include Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and are all designed around entertaining family and friends. The infinity edge pool and hot tub was specifically designed to maximize the views of the Colleton River from the interior of the home.
The second floor has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a bunk room for future grandchildren. Each of the guest suites on the second floor was given a different personality through the millwork and furnishings. Yet each room is blended cohesively by the design of Lisa Whitley from J. Banks Design Group
This home exemplifies a true Lowcountry river lifestyle.
Large flanking sofas balance the coffered ceiling and extensive custom millwork.
Custom designed bookcases in the study display over scaled artwork and collectibles. The vintage rug was found while on a buying trip in Atlanta.
The Jack and Jill bathroom is a retreat for guests with a freestanding tub and wainscot detail.
Paneled walls balance a soaring brick fireplace and rustic mantle, creating an inviting low country sanctuary in the owner’s suite.
