Tour this breezy and inviting Lowcountry beach house on the Isle of Palms


Beau Clowney Architects is responsible for the design of this Lowcountry beach house located on the Isle of Palms, a unique barrier island on the coast of South Carolina. This beachfront pad perfectly marries a traditional Lowcountry exterior with a modern interior. When constructing this dwelling, the project team worked diligently to select the right materials to withstand our coastal climate.

From the cedar roof shingles to the teak decking, this home was built to last. The inside features a private outdoor shower, plaster-filled pecky cypress walls and ceiling, and a four-season room. The layout of the home was designed for remote work with a private office space that can also be used as a guest suite.

What We Love: This Lowcountry beach house showcases the most serene and welcoming living spaces for family living and entertaining. The selection of wood flooring in the main spaces provides an overall feeling of inviting warmth. We are especially loving all of the fabulous outdoor living spaces with their oceanfront views that enable the occupants of this home to relax and recharge.
