Coastal Living House Plans
Southern Living's 2019 Idea House is full of coastal charm and new-old architectural detail. With nearly 1,400 square feet of dedicated outdoor living over four separate porches, this idyllic Lowcountry-inspired home is the perfect beach-side escape.
Each year, the Coastal Living Idea House blends the best in architecture, building, and decorating inspiration to embody the spirit of the coast in one dreamy package. For 2018, we raised the bar even higher. Take a virtual tour of plan SL-1986, Coastal Living Cottage, on CoastalLiving.com, with comments from Interior Designer Jenny Keenan.
If you imagine a Southern Living beach home, you probably envision a pastel-colored, stilt-supported, porch-wrapped house resting between a sandy panhandle-shaped beach and a blacktop highway. Surprise! Instead, we headed north to Bald Head Island, North Carolina, a car-free, accessible-only-by-boat barrier island. Enchanged by the unplugged lifestyle, we paired three Southerners - architect Eric Moser of Moser Design Group, designer Lindsey Coral Harper of LCH Interiors, and builder Jeff Sanderson of Whitney Blair Custom Homes - with similar visions to build an authentic Carolina Coastal Getaway.
Equally suited for the Lowcountry or any waterfront location, Hawthorn Cottage, SL-2004, from new designer Lake and Land Studio is our Plan of the Month. Give it a look today!
