Inviting modern farmhouse cottage for family living in South Carolina

modern-farmhouse-cottage-exterior

Designed by Court Atkins Group in collaboration with Lisa Furey Interiors, this modern farmhouse cottage is a mini-compound constructed over time. Located in Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, South Carolina, this is the home of the designer and her family, which began with a small, single-story guest cottage. Eventually a carriage house was added on to the property of the daughters. As time went on, their needs grew and they realized they also required a larger gathering space for family and friends, the main house.

The challenge of this project was to construct a bright and airy home that maximizes views of the lake, while having enough room for everyone to congregate. An upside down/reverse floor plan was created for the home, where the main living areas encompass the upper level. A great room houses the kitchen, dining, living, deck and design studio. Expansive windows brings in light and views, while an open staircase creates a focal point in the entry. Vaulted ceilings and white walls helps to keep the small space feeling open and inviting.

When everyone needs their separate space, there are two bedrooms located on the first level. There is also additional sleeping, bathing and eating spaces in the cottage and carriage house — perfect for family living and entertaining!

Above: This low country bungalow was phase one of the three-phase construction on this beautiful lakefront property shared with family and friends. A cozy modern farmhouse guest cottage, this one bedroom, one bathroom space consists of 690 square feet. The goal was to create a livable and open feeling. On the interiors, tall windows and doors help to create an open feeling in the space.

This was achieved with the use of pocketing doors and a vaulted ceiling. An efficient layout in this small space includes hidden kitchen appliances and a concealed laundry space, built-in TV and work desk, carefully curated furniture pieces and a bright and white color palette combine to make this tiny house feel like a home.

what makes this farmhouse “modern”? is it the extensive use of white in the interior?

Linda Lamb

Just Gorgeous !!! How many square feet is the cottage across from the carriage house?

Kelly

I think this inviting, fresh house might better be called Southern Coastal! Our farm houses don’t look anything like that here in Colorado. It looks cool, even in the humid summer.

Carrie M.

I live in So. California and we have this same farmhouse style with a beach vibe! I think it just depends on where you live.

Thitirat Srisompote

I think the house should not be too low at least hundred twenty cm. from the ground .

Tonya Wimberly

Can you please share the brick and mortar brand & color? Gorgeous design!!

Katie Bownds

Yes i would like to know this too!
