Indigo Run home infused attention to detail, craftsmanship and design into the year-long project

Jim and Nell Kelly love living the Lowcountry lifestyle in their new Lowcountry-style home at the exclusive Golf Club at Indigo Run community on Hilton Head.

Hot pink and other bright colors, kitchen desks, Whirlpool bathtubs, over-the-range microwaves, tiled counters, matching furniture and arched faucets all had their day in many Lowcountry kitchens and bathrooms.

Now it’s white/gray color schemes in the kitchen, transitional style design, wood flooring, outdoor kitchens, coffee stations and wet bars, storage pullouts, floating vanities in the master bathroom and freestanding tubs.

It had everything Dave and Kristy Folkwein from Cleveland, Ohio, wanted when they bought their getaway vacation home two years ago — except for its outdated interior design and floor plan.

Gull Point home blends traditional style with modern functionality

Tucked away beneath towering pine trees and marshes that straddle both sides of the private road and residences, Gull Point in Sea Pines rests comfortably undisturbed. Only a biting breeze on a cool late winter’s day breaks the calm in this upscale residential community.

OKATIE HOME MAKES MOST OF NATURAL SURROUNDINGS

From her screened porch, outdoor patio, manicured backyard, upstairs balcony, kitchen and most rooms at her Mediterranean-style home, Ann Bitner can see the marsh and Okatie River bend here and there.
