The Loggerhead

Info

Traditional Beachfront Folly—The Loggerhead

This traditionally inspired home on the ocean at Folly Beach, SC was just a gleam in the eye of the owner when Divine Creations joined the project. Called “The Loggerhead” after the loggerhead turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs once a year, this house is inviting and spacious.

Sue Mac Ridgeway worked with the builder from the earliest stages of the home’s construction. The firm served as project manager overseeing all the work from exterior to interior to landscaping.

Constructed as an investment property by a doctor from Columbia, SC, the vision for this seven bedroom, six and a half bath house was as a small conference retreat center. All public spaces were designed for large crowds and easy flow. The kitchen was configured for use by several cooks or chefs including two ovens, two dishwashers, a center island gas grill and two granite serving areas.

The house’s large six over one windows are trimmed in an Arts and Crafts style. Continuing that feeling, Doric columns were used to give a feeling of spacial division between the dining and living areas. They rooms’ large windows allow the abundant natural light to pour into the living areas where a chandelier made of penshell, resembling tortoiseshell, gives a warm glow to the dining area. A color palette of soft shades of green and yellow was chosen for the walls and Brazilian cherry floors anchor the light-filled space with their rich tones.
Echoing the dunes just outside, the kitchen’s granite countertops resemble the drifting sand. Divine Creations commissioned backsplash tiles hand cast to mimic baby sea turtles and other ocean creatures. These were interspersed with beautiful Italian tile and hand-painted switch plate covers, created by a local Charleston artist and potter, to match the Italian tile.

The Loggerhead theme is continued in the foyer by using Metropolitan penshell lighting fixture, from the same “family” as the dining room chandelier.
