In the shade of majestic moss-draped oak trees lies the quaint planned waterfront community of Habersham, South Carolina. The distinctively southern style of this award-winning sustainable community and its picturesque marsh views make the ideal backdrop for this year’s Coastal Living Idea House.
Belgard is proud to be the exclusive hardscapes sponsor of the project. Both the builder and the designer for this year’s Idea House weighed in on the value this partnership brought to the look and functionality of the home’s outdoor living spaces.
“The outdoor rooms of the Idea House were critical design elements,” says designer R. Eric Moser of Moser Design Group, Inc. “Belgard offered the ideal products and services extending from the raised courtyard and summer kitchen, to the pervious paver motor court, to the fire pit on the marsh. The materials create rich textures and inviting spaces. I was delighted with the result.”
“The outdoor living area provided the main visual feature for the outside of the house,” adds builder J. Allen Patterson IV of Allen Patterson Residential, LLC. “Not only was it beautiful, it was also functional and durable.”
Belgard is excited to offer to offer this exclusive sneak peek at the outdoor living spaces of this charming coastal cottage.
A Lafitt® Grana Slab stepping stone walkway adds casual curb appeal and provides a welcoming entrance to the raised coastal cottage. A Lafitt® Grana Slab landing adds a finished look to the foot of the entrance stairway leading to the wide country-style porch.
An Urbana® Stone eco-friendly permeable paver driveway protects the neighboring low country marsh from the harmful effects of stormwater runoff and provides an attractive route to the rear of the home, leading to the two-car garage and the home’s welcoming outdoor living spaces. The driveway design includes a grassy median and is flanked by a colorful flower bed.
Raised Terrace Patio
The terraced Lafitt® Grana Slab patio includes a built-in grill island and a comfortable sitting area bordered by raised planters. The planters and terrace edge are finished with bullnose Eastwood Coping. Lafitt® Grana Slab was also used for treads on the terrace steps and a breezeway to the garage, to create a cohesive look for the terrace design.
The centerpiece of the terrace patio is the built-in grill island. The chiseled stone look of Tandem® Modular Grid creates the framework for the island and was also used for a backsplash and to flank the back stairs, adding elegance to the home’s rear entrance.
Fire Pit Patio
A permeable fire pit patio provides a destination spot at the end of the driveway looking out into the peaceful marsh. The Weston Stone™ Fire Pit sits on a bed of crushed stone and is surrounded by the same Urbana® Stone permeable pavers used for the driveway, creating a seamless transition to the driveway and garage area.
