A Beautiful Low Country Home Overlooking the May River

Every now and then I come across a home that is just, Wow! This beautiful home in Bluffton, South Carolina is definitely one of those homes!



The interior is amazing but check out these views! This home located in Palmetto Bluff, overlooks the beautiful May River.



Wouldn’t you love to tour all the homes on this street, like the one there across the street with double porches? Let’s go inside and take a tour of this beautiful home.



Beautiful entry! Love the color of the hardwood floors, such a rich, warm brown. Very livable!



A beautiful living room with lots of built-in cabinetry…





I like how the kitchen is open to the living room, yet feels like its own space.





Do you see the refrigerator? Absolutely love how it’s camouflaged from view appearing as additional cabinetry.



Notice the mix of stained and painted cabinetry. This kitchen has all the best appliances, including a Wolf range.



This is one of several places in the home where you can relax and dine.



It feels like a wonderful sunroom with all the glass and fabulous views. Imagine all those lovely French doors thrown open to the veranda, river breezes and birdsong wafting in on a sunny day.



The home has several bedrooms but this is my favorite because it has a wonderful screened porch adjoining it.



Imagine having your orange juice or coffee here each morning. Yes, please!



There’s even a fireplace for warming things up on chilly evenings. So romantic! I could see reading here in the evening before turning in for the night.

  1. Beautiful house on the inside and outside.

  2. Oh my goodness, that is a beautiful home. The colours and textures are perfect. -Jenn

  3. This is absolutely stunning!

  4. Wow Susan, I love everything about this house, and I don’t often say that about new construction. Love the way it’s furnished, as well as the design. Thanks for sharing this with us and have a good weekend!



  5. I am swooning over this lovely home! Thanks for the tour!

  6. Love the homes in the South. This one is no different. It looks like a beautiful neighborhood. I have such a thing for white houses with big porches. Our home is very much a one of a kind in these parts. I have stumbled across three that used the plans that I bought. I did not follow the plans as there were too many things on the inside that I did not like. The outside is similar in that it has the porches and is white with black shutters. I love our home, but now that we are older, I am very ready to say goodbye. It is too big for two people, plus the upkeep of the property and the taxes are costly. As for your preview home, the only thing I don’t like, is the fridge looking like a cabinet. I don’t mind so much if it matches the cabinets, but making it a real focal point by doing it this way, is too much for me. We have a built in side by side Sub Zero. I tell my husband I want to be buried in my Sub Zero, I can’t imagine being apart from it, LOL. I want to see my fridge as well as my other appliances. I want a kitchen to be a kitchen, not a den with all kinds of beautiful woodwork and paneling. I like white cabinets, or now am getting into other paint colors for the base cabinets. I will never have a beautiful cherry kitchen, I would stress out about getting it dirty, LOL. I guess I am a bit flaky about kitchens.

  7. Stunning. It would take a full day to enjoy each room and all those outside spaces. The owners must get alot of guests!

  8. Oh, how I could live there!

  9. Gorgeous! I’d love to hang out there. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Sure does make me want to move.

    It is perfect.

  11. Such a lovely, gracious home, and as you said, so livable!

    (Did you know there are two somewhat distorted pics of your dining room within this post?)

    • Doreen, Ummm, this is a mystery. I just looked at the post again on my desktop and on my phone and I don’t see that. I wonder why it’s showing that way for you. You may want to restart whatever device you are using or clear your cache to see if that changes anything. Are you viewing it on a phone or tablet?

    Well, this is lovely. I love white kitchens with a colored/stained Island. The rest of the house is classy but comfortable.

  13. Renee Cook says

    Beautiful home! I LOVE all the windows and french doors!!

    I just love these low-country homes with their airy feel. The kitchen-to-great-room design is what we have planned for our retirement cottage so that we can set up our dept. 56 Halloween and Xmas Dicken’s villages on the divider between the living spaces (we want to see it from both sides after all the work that goes into setting it up, and it’s so cozy at night with all the glowing houses and simmering snow). The fireplace in their dining room is what we have planned for our eat-in portion of the kitchen, that will also have a walk-out bay window. The formal dining room will be more private so we can decorate as we wish, and looking at a messy holiday kitchen while dining won’t be a factor. Love a porch fireplace for those chilly nights, and a great place for a real log-burning one. A must-have in our dream cottage is having a fireplace in many rooms–somehow, for me, that makes a room more user friendly, and gives one a great place for holiday decorating. I love that most of the low-country homes have several porch areas whereby you have more views, especially from the second floor where you have a better sight-line of the landscaping. I just love all the houses you post–gives me so many ideas for that one day cottage. You truly can have it all in a smaller home–all the high-end finishes that make it live big with far less upkeep. Hugs!

  15. Perfect pictures! Beautiful …..home. I’m ready to move.

  16. What were e names of the travel companies you used for your trips? I thought I wrote them down but now can’t find it.

    • Diana, I’ve used three different companies. For the trip to Africa, I let Mahlatini arrange everything. Here’s their website: https://www.mahlatini.com/. I’ve forgotten who helped me there but if you would like her name, let me know and I can look that up. I think her name was Clara or Claire.
      For the trip to Italy, I went with Grand Circle Travel. For the trip to Holland and Belgium, I used Vantage Travel.

    I probably would kill for that kitchen!!! Beautiful house! I am saving this post because the floors are stained a color that I would like to have in my house. If I take my Kindle with me, maybe I can get a match on the color. Love it!!! Thanks for the post.

  18. Cyndi Raines says

    Loved all of it! Especially the porches, the built-ins, and all the windows!

  19. Beautiful home! Would you mind sharing the brick color used on the fireplace?
    Thank you!

    What is the backsplash in the kitchen? Can you provide the location to buy online?
