Custom Built Home Tour

Hello all, hope this blog post finds you doing well and enjoying the beautiful October weather.

I’ve been in South Carolina now for about two months waiting on my husband to finish up his training in Oregon.  While here I’ve  enjoyed checking out a few sites in the area.   It’s no surprise, Charleston is still my favorite, the city is full of historic homes and sites.  If you’ve never been you need to add Charleston to your list of things to do.

While checking out the area I found a building company owned by Richard Jackson.   The company is Jackson Built Custom Homes it’s based in Daniel Island, South Carolina.  This builder has amazing taste, the homes are beautiful down to the smallest detail.  Their website has home tours that leave you wanting to see more.  I am not affiliated with this company in any way, but just thought I would share one of their house tours.  Click on the pictures for more details and contact information.

This screened in porch with fireplace has to be my favorite along with the kitchen.  A great room for watching a little Alabama football.

I think most women have a dream kitchen, this one is pretty close to mine.  The white cabinetry with Carrara marble and three windows centered over the sink, overlooking the back yard are amazing.  The copper hood, the cabinetry, the ceiling details, the beams, all show what wonderful craftsmanship this company puts into their homes.

 This butler’s pantry has an abundant amount of storage that will eliminate any clutter in your kitchen.

The dining and living area are open to one another.  The neutral color palette is timeless and not to mention great when decorating for the holidays.

The built-ins and molding are beautiful, I can just see a fire burning and my Christmas tree sitting in the corner.

Hope you enjoyed taking a tour of this beautiful Jackson Built Custom Home.  If you are ever in the Charleston area check them out.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

Seaside on Highway 30A

After checking out Alys Beach last week, next up is Seaside.  This community is known for its tin roofs, pastel paint and picket fences.  The cottages are strung along 80 acres on the Gulf of Mexico, located between Panama City and Destin.   Seaside is a pedestrian-scaled beach town with 423 residences, 42 specialty retail shops and 12 restaurants and eateries.  Established in 1981 by Robert and Daryl Davis.  Most of the homes are rentals listed below, the homes for sale start at around $1.5 million,  so start saving for your little slice of paradise.  Check out the links attached below to book your next vacation at the beautiful town of Seaside.

The beach pavilions mark the end of every street, beckoning beachgoers to play in the waves, build castles in the sand or relax in the sun. And after a long spell at the beach they stand ready to welcome them back in again.
