Located along South Carolina’s Catawba River, The Huntington captures the character and appeal of an old house. Faithful to the area vernacular, the style comes from a raised river cottage, and the home’s design inspiration hews to those in low-country communities, says interior designer Susan Hill. Reminiscent of how homes often evolve by adding on or converting spaces, the study at the front of the house carries this detail through, as though it were an enclosed porch. White oak floors, board-and-batten wainscoting, shiplap wall boards, and a sliding barn door in the dining room complement the intended design.
The extended gable on the front elevation continues the cottage form, adding character while protecting the upper windows from the elements. The covered porch and patio in the back create a space for outdoor living and entertaining. The home’s color scheme is inspired by its natural surroundings.
