Come on in! I’d like to welcome you to my new favorite cottage. Sugarberry is designed by the Moser Design Group and is located in Habersham, SC. You may have remembered me mentioning the cute little community before. Habersham is located just outside Beaufort which is just north of Hilton Head Island and about an hour north of Savannah, GA.
Enough background info. Let’s look around, shall we?
Walk up the front steps to the porch and you’re greeted by the most awesome front door and gas lamps. Everything on this exterior was built to look historic and that’s one of the things I love. The front door opens directly into the living room with no foyer so you’re immediately invited into the hearth of the home. On the exterior they chose to include shutters which I think gives the house that much more southern character, not to mention they’re functional in cases of inclement weather.
Walk through the front door and you’re smack dab in the center of the home. Sugarberry Cottage has an open floorplan which means everyone can hang out with the cook which works perfectly for my household.
Part of this great room is one of the sweetest kitchens. Although it is rather small I believe it packs a good bit into the space without feeling crowded. I love the open shelving, farmhouse sink, butcher block island, and open range with decorative hood. I’m even in love with the pendant lights.
I love that sink! I hate divided sinks. I need a nice big space to scrape off food and wash my dishes. Craig and I don’t use the dishwasher since it’s just the two of us and sometimes it can be so difficult to wash large pots and pans in our current sink. My desire is to have a nice large farmhouse sink with a tall faucet and pull down sprayer.
Speaking of sinks take a look at this powder room. I LOVE how they’ve mounted the faucet and handles on the wall and have installed a washbasin below. I love how the grain shows in the wood piece below and I love how it is curved which makes it perfect for a small room. In the hallway they used an old shutter to cover up an electrical box. What a great use of material for both function and decoration!
Next to the powder room is the back hallway entrance and they’ve created a built-in space that I adore. Plenty of space to sit and take off your boots and hang up your coat while still being organized and decorative. Off the back hallway is the master bedroom and bath. I love the dual sinks, plenty of storage drawers, wainscoting on the walls, and the pivot mirrors over the sinks.
The upstairs has two bedrooms that are tucked into the eaves and that makes for great opportunities to maximize your space. I love how they added the built-in shelving to surround the windows.
Finally I’ll share with you the last detail that really stood out to me and that was the guest bath. Craig is totally against tubs as he believes they serve no purpose but I think that we definitely need one for the guest bath/ kids space. I loved how they framed out the tub/shower in this bathroom. It really helps to add character and definition without making it feel too closed in. I also love the theme with the hanging fish and crab on the wall. Too cute!
Don’t forget to check out the Southern Living website for more pictures. I’ll leave you with another exterior shot. Screened porches are of utmost importance in the south as our bugs tend to be more prevalent than elsewhere. I love the white clapboard siding. This house really feels like home to me. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it or just feel eh? Do you have any favorite elements in the home that you feel you could duplicate? I can’t wait for Craig and I to get in our new house so I can start DIY’ing the heck out of it!
