The Light House: Completed Courtyard

by Nov 13, 2018Garden

The view entering the courtyard. The brick floors make the space feel so warm and cozy. The new screened porch is just incredible.

The house has become a home. It was such a pleasure to be a part of this wonderful renovation and addition. Most important of all the homeowners love it. The courtyard has become an extension of their living space. And certainly, with Charleston’s mild winters and pleasant Spring and Fall, our hope for our clients and friends is that they enjoy the outdoor space regularly. With a newly designed entrance and layout the space feels twice as large and it’s soooo inviting. Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening dining under the stars in Charleston?

Lovely simple fountain paired with clients existing teak rockers. Every home needs a water feature. The sound of running water is so calming.
New dining area is right outside the new screened porch ready for guests.
This marble topped table was the clients kitchen table in their previous home, now repurposed for perfect outdoor dining.
Perfect space to entertain. We tucked a grill into an unused area , this keeps everyone connected while cooking outside.
Added an awning and built out the marble topped serving space. This also hides the unsightly hoses and gas line.
We created a serving space for parties that can double as a bar for additional seating when needed.
Lovely view looking at entry.
Welcome home! Doesn’t this just make you want to see what’s on the other side of the gate?
New entrance. Beautiful new gate with a speakeasy door and arbor.
Cocktails anyone??? Cheers! 🥂
