Creekfront Lowcountry-style Raised Beach House

completed front exterior elevation

Boasting 3,500 SQFT, this CRG custom home offers ideal beach living within the private gated community of Inlet Harbor on the south end of the Garden City peninsula. Only steps away from where the ocean and tidal creek meet and located across from protected land, this lot was chosen for its gorgeous, unobstructed views of both bodies of water.

As a raised beach home, the ground floor is elevated on wood piles that are driven into the ground to provide a structure able to withstand the pounding of a tidal surge and protect living spaces from flooding.

Raised beach home with outdoor shower

Main living areas are located on the raised first level and incorporate an open floor concept to allow for a more relaxed and simple layout.

The exterior of the home embodies Lowcountry style with porches at each end of the home providing views of both the waterway and ocean. Bahama Shutters adorn the windows, in addition to their aesthetic appeal, they also help to deflect heat from the home, which can reduce energy costs.

Standing seam roofing was used throughout, which is a common Lowcountry-style material that provides added resistance against strong winds. Due to this home’s close proximity to the ocean, all exterior finishes were selected for their durability and resistance to the elements.
