Home of the Week: A Jewel in the Kiawah Maritime Forest

Home Design

This Kiawah Island, S.C. project is located in a maritime forest where the maximum coverage for all non-permeable elements is about 4,600 square feet, and the Architectural Review Board required the retention of significant trees.

Have you entered yet? The 2018 Best in American Living™ Awards deadline is Aug. 24!

The design strategy was to utilize the Craftsman Style in developing a “Jewel Box” that nestled into the trees and used natural wood siding with metal and cedar or slate roofs.

The design takes full advantage of the expansive views and park-like setting.
