Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home

I recently had the opportunity to tour a Southern Living Custom Builder showcase home in Myrtle Beach, SC.  The home was constructed by Classic homebuilders of Myrtle Beach and it did not disappoint! You can check out more at the builder’s website Classic Home Building.  I only have pictures from my Iphone, but I thought they were worth sharing. It was truly a beautiful home in a lovely setting.

This is The River Run, which is Southern Living House Plan #578, designed by John Tee. It has just under 2500 square feet of heated space.

The landscape and hardscape were stunning! I took a couple of close-up photos of the brickwork and pea gravel.

The brickwork shown above is where the driveway joins the street.

The covered patio is right outside the great room.

The interior designer used the same fabric on the club chairs in the great room and on the side chairs in the dining room.

Back down the stairs we see the laundry/mudroom.

This drop zone was only about 6 to 8 inches deep and was a great use of space.

Now let’s head back to the other side of the house where there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

This bedroom also has French doors that open onto the front porch just like the dining room.

The hall bath had a very glamorous look.

One bedroom was staged as a study.

The covered patio and backyard were equally wonderful.

I hope that you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. The house is no longer open for tours now but it will open again for holiday tours from November 3 –19. If you are in the Myrtle Beach or Litchfield area you may want to check it out. There is a small admission fee ($10) which goes to charity.

I hope that all of you are safe and have fared well from the recent storms.
