Charming historical beach cottage on Sullivans Island, South Carolina

This classic island beach cottage was designed by Beau Clowney Architects in collaboration with Sea Island Builders, located on Sullivans Island, South Carolina. Located on the Intracoastal Waterway side of the island, this two-story family home contains 4,192 square feet of living space with six bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. Built in 1830, the architects took a dated piece of history and transformed it into a living masterpiece.

The design team worked together to fuse two structures into a combined single dwelling. The project ranged from moving, raising, and elevating to preserve, restore, and add onto the original elements. The finished result is a beautiful elevated beach house, whose original architecture has been maintained as much as possible while designing new life back into it.

Project Team: Architect: Beau Clowney Architects / Builder: Sea Island Builders / Landscape Design: Wertimer Landscape Designer

Above: The wood walls are original to the space and had many layers of paint on them. The builders sanded and scraped the walls until they achieved the look that was most desirable. This is a one-of-a-kind project.
