New Construction with Old American Charm

Garden & Gun

In a country content with McMansions, it's a treat to see a new construction designed to fit rather than dominate the landscape. However, in the case of this South Carolina farmhouse designed by architect Ken Pursley, the appeal doesn't stop with the structure. Rope railings, planked walls, and a bunk room are just a few interior details contributing to its charm.

Rather than going for the typical American farmhouse, Ken Pursley's inspiration came from an old icehouse that he spotted on Cumberland Island in Georgia. The unusual double-decker roofline and loads of windows, give the house both unique character and an airy modern appeal. The interiors take advantage of the light with an open floor plan filled with relaxed rustic details like the reclaimed wood shower door on a barn door track.
