Timeless coastal retreat with relaxed interiors on Saint Simons Island

coastal-retreat-exterior

This beautiful coastal retreat was designed for an Atlanta couple by architects T.S. Adams Studio, located on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. The design of this home is inspired by nature, which seems to be inherent considering the idyllic landscape. The exterior facade is timeless and inviting. It offers a fresh take on a Low country raised cottage — wide steps, deep front porch, support columns and a trio of dormer windows.

Exquisite details transform this home into a welcoming abode, including hand-crafted materials and exacting proportions. On the exterior you will find a mix of reclaimed brick, rough mortar, wood siding and a mix of cedar shingles and copper on the roof. The overall aesthetic appears as a historic structure that has evolved over time.

What We Love: This stunning coastal retreat offers a timeless design with interior living spaces that are warm and inviting. A welcoming front porch creates an intimate feel that draws visitors inside. Spacious and airy interiors are ideal for living and entertaining, with picture windows framing views of the tranquil waterside setting. We are especially loving the screened porch, what a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy conversation with family and friends… Readers, please share your thoughts with us on the design of this project in the Comments below!

One of the islands is used for casual dining, while the other features refrigerator drawers for convenient access to refreshments during parties. The flooring is a quarter sawn reclaimed heart pine. Due to the age of the material, you get more brown than the newer heart pine which can be heavy on the orange side. Sourced by Vintage Lumber Sales.
